I was the first in line at my local bookstore to grab a copy of Vegan Lunch Box Around the World. I have to admit that I am a fan of McCann's blog, and her first book, the Vegan Lunch Box, but this book is its own work of art that makes you not only want to use this book, but turn your own lunches into a work of art no matter what your age.

McCann's book is useful in multiple ways. First, she provides several menu suggestions for various parts of the world including: United States, Canada. Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, India, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Japan. If you are unfamiliar with any of these locations, having the menu suggestions are invaluable. Also, the book has a picture gallery, showing multiple lunch box options and presentations of the menu. The pictures are so elegant; it really makes me want to have multiple lunchbox systems. The other way that the book is amazing is that it offers over 125 recipes. The recipes are very friendly to the family on the go. Many come together quickly and are made with items that can be found at the store (in a bigger city) or easily ordered online. With items that might be harder to find, McCann always gives options to order from the internet. This means that there might be some preplanning involved, but gives you something to look forward to in the mail. If you're pressed for time and looking for easy yet inventive vegan recipes, than just double or triple the recipes depending on the amount of people you have, and you have vegan dinner! Yay! Even McCann's most exotic recipes have ingredients that are commonly found. The Moroccan Tagine is a great example. It's elegant and exotic, yet, every ingredient can be found in a common supermarket.

My family is not vegan or even vegetarian, but my son is sensitive to dairy, so I try to keep it out of his diet and particularly out of his school lunches. However, he LOVES food of all kinds and always wants to try new things. So I need to be creative about packing his lunches. The standby of PBJ will only be sufficient for him every once in a while.

This book is filled with great menus and recipes for very healthy lunches, and I would say that most of the meals can be modified to a diet that is not vegetarian or vegan. But whether you want to go entirely vegan or not, you will find lots of healthy ideas in this book.

In all honesty, I use it more for inspiration and suggestions than for the actual menus. When I'm at a loss for ideas on what to pack for lunch this week, I'll flip through the menus and recipes and look for something that I can easily manage with the ingredients I have on hand or with only a couple of items added to my weekly grocery list. I always find something new and fun to try.

And best of all, my son got very excited when I got this book. He went straight to the pictures, pointed to every single one he saw, and asked me to make them all for him. They vary from pizza to sushi, and quite honestly, I'm not always up to the task. But there are plenty of quick and easy suggestions for busy mornings that can be tossed into the lunch box in a snap.

Overall, it's a great addition to my healthy lunch collection and I would recommend it to anyone.

Format: Paperback
Vegan Lunch Box Around the World by Jennifer McCann is a collection of vegan, allergy friendly recipes that your kids will love to have for lunch. Many of the recipes are also very suitable for dinner like the Chik'n Pot Pie and the New England Chowder. There are a wide variety of recipes including main course, soups, salads, grain dishes, veggie dishes & desserts.

The cookbook is broken down into two parts. Part one contains menus from around the world including United States, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, The Caribbean, Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, The Middle East, India, Africa, Asia, Australia and Japan. Each section offers an explanation for some of the less common ingredients from the area like Vegemite in Australia and haggis in Scotland.

The first section also includes a sample menu from each country for example, in Vietnam, I found: Vegetarian Pho (page 103), Vietnamese Salad Rolls (page 91), Hoisin sauce for dipping, fresh or drained canned lychee fruit.

The second section lists all the recipes. There are a few sentences that describe the recipe, the recipe itself and then information on what allergens the recipe contains. Being a mom of two gluten intolerant children, I love this section! While the book is vegan (no meat, dairy or egg), you can easily add in meat proucts if you choose to.

The book has a section of beautiful color photographs in the center. Several meals are gorgeously displayed in a variety of settings including bento boxes, picnics and plates. The book also has a section on garnishes like radish rosettes that I found very interesting. The book has a total of 263 pages which includes two sections and twenty seven chapters.
