Wave goodbye to boring store-bought sandwiches and embrace the art of the lunchbox. Adults and kids alike will enjoy these imaginative homemade lunches created with care--the healthier, tastier and cheaper option.

The lunch hour is one that can be the biggest highlight or disappointment of any day. A store-bought meal purchased in haste is so often a bland specimen, shovelled down without a second thought to health or bank balance. Yet, food-savvy members of the public are now more conscious than ever about what they are putting into their bodies. Nutritious and delicious dinners are big business--and why stop at dinner, after all, around a third of meals eaten are inevitably lunches at work or school. Hungry souls are now after something better come breaktime, and are willing to spend a little longer on something that tastes good and does good. The new supercharged lunchbox can be so much more than the wafer-thin ham sandwich and packet of chips from yesteryear. Instead The Art of the Lunchbox will teach how to create a thing of delight, a balanced individually portioned meal that will be the envy of colleagues. Don't cheat yourself, instead treat yourself to a beautifully crafted lunchbox.

The Sandwiches chapter is bursting with fresh ideas: sample a delicious Asian-style B#65533;nh M#65533; Baguette or a yummy Mexican Burrito. Or try a freshly built Open Sandwich, which is light and bright and so easy to prepare. In the Salads chapter learn how to make the ultimate Quinoa Salad Jar, as well as warm salads for cold days such as Curried Lentil Salad with Paneer and Spiced Dressing. Discover just what you can achieve with the Hot Food options available. Try soups like Sweet Potato, Coconut and Ginger soup, Hungarian Goulash with Pasta or homemade Vietnamese Pho. The Savories section gives you a plethora of options for when you fancy something different: Mini Asparagus and Leek Frittatas, Easy Sushi Wraps, or Sausage and Red Bell Pepper Rolls. Making a big batch of Snacks to have for the week is so much healthier than sugar-packed cereal bars: try Spicy Masala Kale Chips, Harissa Hummus or Peanut Butter Popcorn. Lastly, in the Something Sweet chapter, make healthy treats like Orange, Cardamom and Hemp Seed Muffins or indulge in deliciousness with a Fruity Chocolate flapjack.
