Item Reviewed: What Are You Doing for Lunch?

They say there is no such thing as a free lunch. This book offers you something even better: a fun, easy way to save money and improve your health by simply packing your own lunch.

Highlights of the book:

  • Over 70 delicious recipes to prepare in 20 minutes or less.
  • Cost-savings projections of how much you’ll save in a month and in a year.
  • Nutrition facts to help you keep an eye on calories, fat, sugar, and sodium.
  • A sample menu of lunches to get you started.

This book is for you if:

  • You are spending too much money on lunches and want to begin saving. Included are comparative cost analysis of each recipe so you can see how much you are saving with each recipe.
  • Thinking about your weight and health and knowing you are eating too many empty calories at lunch keeps running through your head. The recipes use primarily fresh ingredients and desserts have been deliberately omitted.
  • There are family members and friends you know that need help with lunch planning and meals. This book is a great gift idea for the person who wants to change their lunch patterns, but doesn’t know where to begin.

My Thoughts

This year I have two kids in two different grades at school and I have had to come up with lunches to pack for them. In the first week they were both bored with what I was making them. In comes What Are You Doing For Lunch? and in a short amount of time I have my kids raving about the lunches I am packing. Chicken Ceasar Wraps, Peanut Butter and Banana Wraps and Chicken Tortilla Soup…oh my! My kids now have their friends jealous that they have a good lunch and don’t have to eat the same old thing. And it is so easy, some of the recipes I hit my head and said, “Duh, my kids would love that!”. Great recipe ideas in this book and I highly recommend you get it for your household. Your children will thank you!

    Always on the lookout for a less boring lunch.. I like that they use only fresh ingredients and eliminate the desserts.. with these ideas I may be packing less for them and won’t have to worry if they are trading their lunches
    Thanks for sharing.
