What to Pack for Lunch: Entrees
For those mornings when you refuse to spread and slice one more sandwich, there are a few new lunch entree options on the supermarket shelf.Foster Farms Chicken Strips
(The two flavors that were lowest in sodium are Grilled Chicken Breast Strips and Southwestern Seasoned Strips.)
Serving size: Each 6-ounce sealable package contains two 3-ounce servings.
Pluses: This is an easy way to add some chicken to the pita sandwich or chicken Caesar salad you're packing in the morning. It also offers something different from the usual "cold cut" lunch fare.
Minuses: Even though these are the two flavors lowest in sodium in this product line, they still contribute 460-500 milligrams per serving. You might want to avoid pairing these with something high in sodium, such as salty crackers.
