What's for Lunch - Thurs., 6/6
BRUNCH FOR LUNCH
Cinnamon Challah French Toast
w/Applegate® Turkey Bacon
Scrambled Egg & Cheese Wrap
Say "No" to meal declared to be "cake" for lunch by our committee's nutritionist - basically white flour bread. The syrup is basically HFCS. They are looking for an affordable maple syrup but do not have one yet - but they will be limiting the serving size this year in the meantime. Actual lunch from our schools above. This meal has a lot of sugar, simple carbohydrates -- no whole grains.
The turkey bacon is by Applegate. Here are the ingredients: Turkey (Turkey Used Never Administered Antibiotics, Growth Promotants or Animal By-products), Water, Sea Salt, Maple Sugar, Celery Juice, Onion Powder, Spices, Lactic Acid Starter Culture (not From Milk.) They promote it as nitrate-free but this NYT article indicates otherwise - and cites the company saying their products have the same level (naturally) of cancer-causing nitrates as conventional brands. Read more about nitrates here.
I believe the wrap used for the egg and cheese is whole grain. The eggs are actual eggs.
Our potatoes generally come from McCain's Foodservice and are typically a flash-fried and frozen fry, etc. But they also have USDA plain potato wedges and these might be those. I will try to find out.
Fresh watermelon is always popular.
