    1. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!Perfect timing!! The cafeteria at my children's school serves lunch to students ranging in grade PK-5 to high school!! Since last year they LOST $30,000 in revenue, they redid the whole system & farmed it out to a third party. The prices for a school lunch went from $4 (at the high end) to a $6 average Meaning, it can go much higher! For the same crappy food (sorry no other description would really make the point)at a much higher price, 1/2 of the school has started brown [...]


    2. Working from home or in an office with a kitchen, lunch is not a big issue for me - I just have leftovers or a toasted cheese sandwich. My boyfriend, however, works outside all day and really struggles to find interesting and fun things to have for lunch, so when I saw this book on Netgalley I requested it immediately!The first thing I thought while reading this book is gosh that kid is luck to have JM Hirsch for a dad! It is a very well-shot cookbook and the meals look absolutely delicious. It' [...]


    3. I took me an entire school year to try all of the recipes in this gem of a cookbook I received from Atria Books as a part of a giveaway! As a teacher with a rushed, 30-minute lunch break, I need nutrition and creativity packed in an easy-to-carry container. Beating the Lunch Box Blues met my criteria with more than 200 colorful photos and more than 500 tips and meals. From chicken and salmon to sandwiches, salads, soups, veggies and noodle dishes, I was happy. Author J. M. Hirsch creates recipe [...]


    4. All I can say is, man, I wish J.M. Hirsch packed MY lunches.Instead, he wrote a photo-heavy book so you can pack your own lunches the way he would do it. I was surprised that this is not a "cookbook" in that it does not have any actual recipes. Instead, it's full of photos of lunches with little notations about what's in the lunchbox so that you can duplicate it on your own and give it your own style. So it's really more a book of "ideas," which, once I got over it not being a traditional cookbo [...]


    5. Aside form the snarky, negative comment on page 4 about other people's children (not to mention making fun of Bento), I love this book! Lots of great lunch box ideas for kids and adults. I am all about DIY meals, creative leftovers, and unique takes on the same old same old. I am blown away by all the great ideas. There are also great tips on gear. The pictures themselves show a many ideas that the book itself doesn't always mention. That said, this book is for people who can intuit how to make [...]


    6. I received this book from Giveaways. I just bought four new lunch boxes for the new school year. JM Hirsch has had a food blog about the lunches that he makes for his son. He says that he does not spend more than ten minutes in the morning putting together his son's lunch. Making extras at dinner the night before in order to pack them at lunch the next day is not new. Putting the ingredients together in a fun way for lunch is. There are dinner recipes if you desire to use his or merely use your [...]


    7. this is not your typical cookbook as it's meant to be inspirational and it is well photographed. however, there is a distinct reliance on store-bought prepared food items to make the lunch boxes quick which is something people on a budget cannot rely on. I knew I'd be disappointed when Hirsch wrote that he didn't like fish but his vegetarian options were mainly hummous and more hummous. Useless book for my purposes.


    8. I didn't read this book carefully before picking it up from the bookstore. It has a lot of ideas of things to do, but not a whole lot of recipes. The ideas are great and it's very visually appealing, but it makes fun of bento boxes in the beginning and that's not cool



    9. This book started as a blog on which father J.M. Hirsch provided status updates on the successes and failures involved in preparing his son's daily school lunches. With time, he realized he had garnered enough insights to warrant preparation of a book. Less cookbook than "idea, flip-book," Beating the Lunch Box Blues: Fresh Ideas for Lunches on the Go! provides clever insights on everything from lunch gear, to involving those who will be eating said lunches in providing candid input. From the ou [...]


    10. My copy is well worn with plenty of sticky notes and pieces of paper marking various pages. The recipes are delicious and the lunch ideas are creative and make you long for lunch throughout the morning. Great ideas for kids and adults, school and the office, even at home! I cannot say enough good things about this book! Sometimes it will sit on my shelf for a little while unused, but I always go back to it. Every time I flip through the pages I find something new I didn't notice before. This boo [...]


    11. Our group of older ladies and sampling gentleman all agree that the majority of these recipes are for adults. Picky kids like our grandkids might not like everything. We thought this book was better for small appetizer ideas for a potluck or party. We also found problems with the serving sizes of the weekly night recipes and the left over for lunch. One of our cooks ended up with 5 quarts jars full of extra red beans and rice to freeze, plus more servings of the lunches than it called for.



    12. This had some some really great sounding ideas. Like grilled cheese sandwiches cut into croutons? yes, please! I can't wait to buy a copy and start trying them all out.


    13. Nobody wants a lunch cookbook, especially not a lunch box cookbook is the bold claim given at the start of the marketing materials for… a lunch cookbook. Yet it makes a lot of sense, with us being time and idea poor early in the morning when we should be making our lunch before heading off to work. Making it the night before isn't always the best option either.Of course, perhaps we could slip out to a store and pay for the privilege, standing in line and using up much of our lunchtime in the p [...]


    14. We're only six weeks into my daughter's first year of home-packed school lunches, and she's already bored and begging to eat from the cafeteria. I'm not intending to be boring, but lunches, by their perishable nature, must be assembled in the morning, and I'm rarely fully awake before 10, so I open the refrigerator, wearily blink at the options, and vaguely try not to pack the same thing as the day before. Feeding her was a lot easier when I had the option to be awake (given that it was 12:15), [...]


    15. I hate making lunch to take to work. I can never think of anything interesting to make (see also yet another turkey sandwich). If we have leftovers, I never have the right kind of thing to take them in that makes it easy to deal with them at lunch time. I haven't really ever had a great idea for a sandwich in my entire life.I think I was spoiled by my father, who always made extra at dinner and helped me figure out what to take for lunch that would be yummy and easy to carry. My mother is also t [...]

    17. As we gear up for another school year, lunch box meals are back on the radar. I get SO TIRED of packing school lunches. I don't know why. But that explains why I jumped at the chance to review this little book. Will it help? I'm not sure, honestly, if it will help me pack my kids' lunches. But it will most definitely help me pack mine and my husband's, and it's given me LOTS of ideas of things to try for the kids. Hirsch began this book as a blog, too (like Dinner, A Love Story), and chronicled [...]


    18. The format of this book is great. As Hirsch says in his own introduction, it's very take-it-or-leave-it, and meant to be inspiration. Although most of the recipes (or non-recipes) weren't my taste, there were a few gems that gave me new ideas for packed lunches. Disclaimer - I don't have kids, so can't really testify to how kid-friendly these ideas are, but I pack lunch for myself and often for my SO, and I'm always looking for new ideas. My favorites - make a grilled cheese, let it cool and cut [...]


    19. I will be the first to admit that I don't cook very often. I am starting to cook more but it is still a slow process. However I tend to pack my lunch the night before in order to make sure I have time and actually have a lunch to take to work. This book is perfect for someone like me or someone that needs all the time that they can get in the morning. I love the idea of having a meal that does not take a lot of time to make from start to finish the night before and has leftovers that you can eas [...]


    20. I received this book as a first reads giveaway.I was not familiar with the author or the blog he apparently writes but I will definitely be checking him out in the future. This book is not so much a recipe book as it is a stepping stone for creative thinking. Time and again the author shows leftovers from dinner and then adds some vegetables and a bit of dressing for an exciting salad or makes suggestions for a yummy sandwich. He explores what foods can be served hot or cold, makes suggestions [...]


    21. I love food and I love lunch. I spend a lot time trying to come up with ideas to jazz up old boring lunches. The book has a variety of recipes that range from easy to pack lunches to grilled cheese sandwiches, to healthy snacks, and all the way up to using leftovers. Most of the recipes are pretty basic so the take-it-or-leave it style is exactly what I need. I can easily customize it with the stuff I like, and take out what I don't. As with all good cookbooks (in my opinion anyway), it's full o [...]


    22. This book has great photography. The idea: cook dinner with enough leftovers to create a lunch from them the next day. This is a good idea: just not what I was looking for in a lunch cookbook. Each recipe makes 4 servings plus leftovers. It then gives two suggestions (without recipes) on how to adapt the leftovers into a new food as part of your lunch. It doesn't explicitly give you a list of side dishes, either, though you could get many ideas from the photos. The recipes look like they would b [...]


    23. This is a cool little book that gives you ideas for lunches from leftovers. Ok, that sounds like a no-brainer….you just cook extra food or take what ever is left, right?That’s an obvious plan and one we practice quite a bit. But this book will assist with some other ideas for combining leftover meats and/or vegetables to make a completely different dish. There is a bit of humor in the book and I like that. The author talks about the packed lunches he made for his children and the questions a [...]


    24. I thought the ideas were wonderful! I'm lucky to only be making lunch for myself, and I am not an especially picky eater, beyond not wanting my foods to touch. I am still guilty of just dumping left-overs uninspiredly into a plastic container for lunch each day. However, now I plan on trying to go ahead and try to package some of this the evening before so that I can have something that looks quite a bit more appetizing for lunch. I'd much rather have the extra 10ish minutes of sleep in the morn [...]


    25. I liked the idea of this book, and some of the recipes seem pretty good. However, I was a bit disappointed that most of the quick meals were store bought foods all put together. I would have much rather had some nice simple recipes for easy meals. Also, I liked the pages with pictures and little circles explaining how to make the meals, but it was a bit hard to make out the words and pictures because it was all in black and white. If there was some color, it would have made things easier and I w [...]


    26. This has to be one of the most practical cookbooks I've ever read. I know I'm going to have to purchase it because there's so much information and so many wonderful tips. I love the way dinner recipes are turned into convenient lunches and the author does an amazing job of offering alternative ingredients that makes it easy to match meals to tastes and use what you already have on hand. The book's well laid out and colourful. My only complaint is that it makes me hungry every time I read it! The [...]


    27. This book was very refreshing change of pace for me. I've been eating the same lunch at my job for an entire year and it only recently has been bugging me. I had tried looking around on sites like pintrest looking for easy ideas, but I ended up with an overwhelming selection of perfectly manicured bento boxes by people who either don't sleep or work at home. I am not one of these people. I wanted lunch solutions that would be easy to fix the morning before I leave. This book was the answer to my [...]


    28. A beautiful book, a great idea, a little too over the top for me. J.M. Hirsch tells us this isn't a cookbook but a book of inspiration for things to put in lunches. He does include recipes for supper that can then be used to help make lunches the next day. I love the concept. I found in reality though, that most of these ideas are better suited to a more exotic kitchen than mine. Many of the ideas used international ingredients or more vegetables than what my crew is willing to eat. I do think t [...]
