Enter for a Chance to Win the Weelicious Lunches Cookbook

by in Contests, September 5th, 2013

Win a Copy of the Weelicious Lunches CookbookCatherine McCord, FN Dish contributor and founder of Weelicious blog, is back for a second helping of recipes and menu ideas for time-strapped parents — this time with a focus on lunches. In Catherine’s new book, Weelicious Lunches, she offers 160 lunchbox ideas for kids of every age. You’ll never stare blankly at your fridge again.

What caught FN Dish’s eye? There’s a whole chapter on peanut butter and jelly. A whole chapter — 10 new takes on the classic combination that makes kids and adults smile, including Peanut Butter Pancake Sandwiches. Parents will also rejoice in the Weelicious Lunch Allergy Guide. Front and center, it organizes which recipes are gluten-, nut-, egg- and dairy-free. Don’t have kids? FN Dish believes this book is just as useful for adults. We don’t think anyone will argue against packing Catherine’s Silky Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Crouton Bites in a Thermos for work.

    Sadly, it is mainly leftovers from the night before or frozen meals.

    My daughter likes a hot lunch so she gets leftovers from the night before. For my son, sometimes I make wraps or sandwiches using hawaiian rolls.

    Pre make breakfast items on the weekend like muffins, or crock pot oatmeal for quick breakfasts.

  5. @AnitaUtami says:

    I upcycle my leftovers. For example, I made spaghetti pizza from leftover spaghetti and its sauce, add egg and seasonings, add spinach, and then pan-fry it. Works wonder everytime and it eliminates food waste. I also pack fruits to make it a balanced meal.

  6. Emily says:

    My strategy for my youngest, now 4, is the same as it was for my oldest, now 24: leftovers, and pack them the night before. Also, I don't put any item in the lunch box that I wouldn't be happy if she ate first. Dessert is fruit: if she starts with that and doesn't finish her protein food, it's okay. I am also an early childhood educator, and I know it is not reasonable to ask the teacher to monitor whether each child finishes their healthy food before eating their sweets. Nor is it reasonable to ask a young child to to manage that on her own.

    Leftovers become lunch. =)

  8. Nikki says:

    I make my family's lunches the night before! My mantra is when in doubt, take the PB&J route – a classic that never disappoints.

  9. Linda M. says:

    I try to always have lunch meat for sandwiches on hand.

    Because I work from home I spend weekends preparing vegetables to have has handy snacks so I am not tempted to eat junk. I also spend time planning extra dinners so that I have leftovers to eat for lunch. When no leftovers exist, I tend to stick to soups and sandwiches because they are healthy and quick. I plan my grocery trips by whats on sale, then I go to my recipe books to see what meals I can prepare based on what I have on hand. Husbands lunch is packed based on that weeks sales and leftovers.
