Bring Your Lunch by Califia Suntree (Cookbook Review)

Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own.

About the book-

With over 60 delicious, healthful, unexpected recipes, BRING YOUR LUNCH ensures DIY lunchtime success—and significant weekly savings—while keeping the brown-bag doldrums away. And it doesn't matter if you’re a make-ahead food planner or a harried last-minute type—with its innovative, doable strategies, cooks of all kinds can learn to overcome the obstacles that keep them hooked on expensive takeout or boring PB&Js.

My thoughts-

My husband works the overnight shift at work so I am always looking for great new recipes to make for his meal. He works a ten hour shift and is on his feet a lot so I want to provide him with a sustaining meal and a turkey and cheese sandwich just won't cut it. I am always looking on Pinterest for new ideas, but it is also nice to have a bunch of recipes in one spot which is why I was ecstatic to come across Bring Your Lunch. A big chunk of the beginning of the book is devoted to types of equipment needed for carrying and creating your lunch that I really didn't need, but I could see how it would be pertinent information for someone just starting out in the home lunch making game. When I got to the recipes I was excited to see that there was a wide array of different meals to chose from. My husband and I are both fans of recipes from other cultures and I love that there are some recipes like this in the book, it is nice to see so many different types of food choices represented. The book also has some fun ideas to get your office mates involved in community brown bagging as well. I think there are some great recipes here and I would recommend the book to anyone looking to add some variety to their lunches for school and/or work.
