So, where is the beef in a food truck business?
Check out some surprising food truck nutrition facts about our Menu
Welcome to Gourmet Streets Food Truck Nutrition Facts! I hope by now you have surfed our site, discovered more about us and food truck businesss. Here on our blog, we want to cover many topics that will be of interest to you and your customers. To kick off our ‘drive’ on the highway of food truck business success, we thought we would surprise you with some enlightening food truck nutrition info on our Cuisines which are second to none in quality, taste, economic and nutritional value.
Back in 1984, “where’s the beef?” became a well known catch phrase throughout the country. Since it was first used as an advertising slogan, it has become an all-purpose phrase questioning the substance of an idea, event, or product and has even been referred to in presidential campaigns and the academy awards.
So today, in 2011, we ask ‘Where’s the beef?’ to talk about the substance of our food truck cuisines, their ingredients and tantalizing flavors.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Research Service 2002 reveals that a three ounce serving of lean beef provides you with:
Protein – to help you build/maintain lean body mass
Zinc – which boosts your immune system and is also used in the synthesis of testosterone
Phosphorous – which is necessary for strong bones and teeth
Iron – which is essential to transporting oxygen in the blood to your cells
Vitamin B12 – the number one nutritional source for this critical vitamin which helps to release energy from food
CLA – Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a fatty acid found naturally in beef and may play a role in inhibiting tumor growth and development. It also can affect body composition by decreasing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass.
How great is that?
Now, have you ever heard of Panko? It is a flaky bread crumb traditionally used in Japanese cuisine, and it has a crisper, airier texture than most types of breading found in western cuisine. While Panko has been often used on fish and seafood, we at Gourmet Streets love to think outside of the box as well as about food truck nutrition facts. Therefore our Executive Chef Darren Bulley has engineered another spectacular entree using beef and Panko to power up the protein.
And our last humble ingredient, the ubiquitous tomato, you see these red orbs of delight everywhere but who knew that the tomato is a powerhouse source of Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Potassium and Manganese.
And guess where the richest source of lycopene in the diet can be found, yep, it is in the tomato and tomato derived products.
The beef is in American Fare Food Truck Business Cuisine, and more!
So, where is the beef in our food truck nutrition facts? Well, if you put them all together as only Gourmet Streets Food Truck Business Cuisines can, you will be grateful to know that they are all living happily ever after in our American Fare entree:
The Chicago (17 Sandwich )
beef, panco & tomato, meatloaf with Chicago red sauce on Italian bread
As far as we recall, there was no mention of meatloaf on the band Chicago’s finest album, and the sandwich has less than 17 ingredients, still meatloaf city to me!
And for those of you who want to remember 1984 for more than the classic novel of political totalitarian fiction by George Orwell, check out the commercial which made this catch phrase so famous:
