About the Book

Once upon a time there was a thing called the “lunch hour.” During this midday meal, workers would enjoy a welcome break from their busy schedules with a nourishing homemade lunch. Sound familiar? Possibly not. These days, workers often settle for take-out or smushed brown bag lunches al desko rather than al fresco. Yet with the mindfulness movement gaining steam, many offices are warming up to the notion of the old-school lunch hour. The only problem? Your sad desk lunch is still, well, pretty sad.

The Lunch! cookbook takes the guesswork out of grocery shopping, prepping and assembling healthy and appealing midday meals. With chapters built around three main ingredients, the book demonstrates how to make 10 weeks worth of exciting meals (50 lunch bowls in all!) without getting bored or breaking your budget.
