The other day, someone asked me if I could have one dream come true for Weelicious, what would it be? I thought long and hard about it and then I realized….it's already happening -- the Weelicious Lunches cookbook is out today!
Ever since Kenya started preschool and bringing his lunch with him, writing this book has been a passion of mine. I look forward to making my kids' school lunch every day (well, almost every day), but even I have times when I can't think of what to make. This book is meant to help any mom who has ever found herself in the same position. My copy of the book actually arrived from the publisher a few weeks ago and I've been menu planning ahead for back to school, sitting with the kids and letting them pick out all the recipes they want to try from it. Some recipes are less familiar to them as I have only made them once or twice before but many are old favorites of their's that they want to rediscover.
Anyway, I can't wait for you to see the book. If you haven't ordered it already, I hope you can take a moment to peek inside here or here to see what you think. It's hard for me to pick a favorite chapter or recipe, but I am particularly proud of the allergy section. For all you parents of kids with food allergies or dietary restrictions, or even for those whose children go to nut-free schools, I hope it will come in handy.
To celebrate the Weelicious Lunches cookbook release I'm posting a new video today for a quick vegetarian wrap that's featured in the book. Veggie Tortilla Roll-Ups (which is made with my Supereasy Hummus recipe) are a simple 1-2-3 meal which provide a vegetable, protein and carbohydrate all in one dish.
Over the next few weeks I would love to hear what you think of the book. If you haven't heard me say it enough over the past few years as I've been writing it, thank you for all of your kind words, suggestions, and support. Weelicious readers made this book become a reality!
