You know you don't want to rely on school lunch to nourish your kids, but managing a real food packed lunch every day can be mind-boggling, if not refrigerator-boggling. For families who don't use much bread, whether Paleo, gluten-free, or just "Uh oh, we're out of bread," a sandwich-free lunch gets even trickier.

The Healthy Lunch Box is packed with strategies to streamline your packing process, stock your pantry with emergency backups for your backups, and send healthy, delicious food in the lunch box, no matter how old your eater is. And there's not a sandwich in sight.

From children to adults, school kids to homeschooling families, everyone needs to eat lunch -- even if you're only going to have 10 minutes to eat it (the average time a school student realistically has at the table).

Author Katie Kimball's comprehensive "10 Secrets to Successful Lunch Packing" makes this much more than a recipe book; it's a battle plan to fight processed foods and "ditch the 'wich." With over a dozen ways to deliver protein and veggies to one's mouth without a slice of bread, you'll be flying along "sandwich-free" in no time.

In The Healthy Lunch Box, the lessons go way beyond the box. You'll learn simple ways to encourage responsibility and communication, how to pack a waste-free lunch, what to do about allergies in the classroom and even how to cart real food along when you're on an airplane or long car trip.

With 45 lunchtime-friendly recipes, over 100 references for more information, and a massive "What Should I Pack" checklist, you'll never run out of ideas again. Suited for anyone who eats, The Healthy Lunch Box is the tool you need to stick to your real food goals.

Recipes include:
* Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken
* Pizza and Greek Meat Muffins
* Potato Wedges
* Cucumber Dill Beet Salad
* Rice and Veggie Muffins
* Crepes, Dosas, Pancakes, Tortillas, and Crackers, all with gluten-free and grain-free options
* Homemade dressings and dips
* Bacon Parmesan Popcorn
* Granola bars, grain-free bars and muffins, & more!

If you want to avoid commercially produced lunches and processed snack foods, The Healthy Lunch Box will make it happen.
