The midday meal is, for most of us, a welcome break from our busy schedules, where we get to take an hour to nurture ourselves. But, what’s for lunch? Sad bodega sushi or a tortured salad in a plastic container? How do we start having better lunches that will actually energize us and not set us up for an afternoon of fatigue and sluggishness? Lunch! will take the guesswork out of grocery shopping, planning, and preparing inspired and healthy bowls for 10 weeks of better lunches. It is organized into weekly chapters, where each week’s recipes center around three main ingredients.
For example, make a Moroccan Carrot Salad, a Beet Stained Quinoa, and a Mustard Vinaigrette on Sunday night, and use them all week long in dishes like Tuna Nicoise Bowl or a Salad with Grilled Haloumi Cheese. Complete with weekly shopping lists and prep tips to keep the weeknight kitchen labor to a minimum, this book is the gourmand lunch guru in your pocket.
