Brunch For Lunch

Cinnamon Challah French Toast & Applegate® Turkey Bacon

Scrambled Egg & Cheese Wrap 
Baked Potato "Puffs"
Apple Crisp

The bread is white flour not whole grain. The syrup is basically HFCS.  They are looking for an affordable maple syrup but do not have one yet. 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 NY Times 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 do not know if the wrap used for the egg and cheese is whole grain.  But they do use actual eggs like you would use at home. 

"Puffs" are commodity potatoes processed by McCain's into tater tots -- although they are labeled "frozen pre-formed potato rounds."  They are flash-fried before they get to the frozen part.  They have 7g of fat (one of which is saturated) and 190mg of sodium. Ingredients are: potatoes, vegetable oil (contains one or more of the following oils: canola, soybean, cottonseed, sunflower, corn). Contains 2% or less of dextrose, salt, sodium acid pyrophosphate added to maintain natural color.

We make the apple crisp - it's a dessert and it's delicious by many reports.
