What's for Lunch - Tues., 5/28

Whole Wheat Bun
Fresh Fruit Plate with Breadstick & String Cheese
Sweet Corn
Pineapple in Juice

Sorry for the hiatus. .. I was really busy with something really important. And I am now accepting applications from anyone who would like to be named Chief Lunch Blogger.

The hot dogs are from Applegate Farms - so they are far better than many hot dogs but are hot dogs nonetheless. They have 8g of fat and 330mg of sodium. The ingredients are just: beef, water, sea salt, less than 2% of the following: celery juice, sodium lactate (from beets), lactic acid starter culture (not from milk), onion powder, spices, garlic powder, paprika. They have 6g of fat(2.5g saturated) and 380 mg of sodium. They are dairy-, casein- and gluten-free. They promote it as nitrate-free but this NYT article indicates the nitrate issue is tricky - and cites the company saying their bacon has the same level (naturally) of cancer-causing nitrates as conventional brands.  You may also not want your kids growing up thinking hot dogs are a good lunch given the potential link between processed meats and cancer. The bun is whole wheat. 

More canned stuff than usual due to the long weekend:

The corn is canned and has added salt - 200mg per serving and the cans do contain BPA.

Canned pineapple in juice from China.
