A very creative idea for a lunch cookbook with great recipes Sept. 12 2012
By Lois - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is changing the way I think about lunch (and even dinners). It gives a comprehensive shopping list for food staples and ingredients to prepare lunches. Even kitchen tools are listed. The research presented is very impressive. The cost comparison and savings listed (per serving, per restaurant price, 1 month savings and 1 year savings) is enlightening and I think this is a very good resource for preparing meals within a budget. The nutritional information for each recipe is especially helpful for weight loss and healthy eating. The recipes look delicious and simple to do. I highly recommend this creative and well-organized book to anyone needing good ideas for nutritious, easy, and cost-savings lunches.

perfect cookbook for non-cooks Aug. 20 2012
By R. Rauve - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Disclaimer: I know and love the authors of this book.

But that's how I know that Meighan & Dehart know what they're talking about. They're professionals, women who live in the real world of food and work. They're the perfect people to tell you how to transform your lunch regimen from blah and/or unhealthy to imaginative, nutritious, and delightful.

Personal connections aside, this book is a terrific resource. At a glance, you can find out the nutritional value of the recipes, how many calories your lunch will cost you, and how much money you're saving with a few minutes of food prep. The recipes are categorized--are you a networker, a creative, a traditionalist, a gourmet? You can start in the section that's most comfortable for you, and branch out. (I'm a traditionalist, but timidly learning to go gourmet.)

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has to carry a meal to work. It has the potential to dramatically enhance the quality of your life.

An end to the lunch malaise! Oct. 7 2013
By annie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been looking for just this kind of book. It combines variety, good nutrition with ease of preparation and helps bring the lunch malaise to an end. The recipes are practical and while some are familiar there are many fresh ideas for old ingredients.

a big help indeed. I can relate with the title and it can be frustrating to try figure out what to eat.
An engaging resource for children wanting to pack a healthy lunch Oct. 19 2012
By Caroline Flohr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What are you Doing for Lunch? captivated my 8 and 9 year old girls with the information about the food that they were putting into their mouths. The girls take a sack lunch to school everyday. With Mona's book we go to the store, shop for the week's lunches, look at the budget and nutritional information, and can make informed decisions. The girls are a part of the process, learning young that what we put into our bodies is an important part of taking care of ourselves. As a mother, it is my responsibility to teach my children the value of good nutrition. What are you doing for Lunch? is a learning tool that every mother needs on their kitchen counter. Kids love the ideas, and love being part of the process.
