Also I never forgave the author for having the lunch featured on the newer cover be pb&j with some dried up looking vegetable sticks.

I think her recipes are good, and I enjoy reading through it, but I think it's just not for me. And I like really richly flavoured and spicy food (and my boyfriend can eat a LOT) so "kid-food" just doesn't suit me much. I mostly bought it because it's adorable, and I keep hoping one of my friends magically inherits a toddler so I can pass it on to a deserving home.

Ok, I'll break mine out and resolve to try two or three from each lunch box book.

We can just all exchange our copies of Vegan Lunchbox.

Does anybody actually use Vegan Lunchbox? It looks nice, but I've never used mine either.

I really like the lentil rice balls. I don't use it for too much else, but I have five million cookbooks, so most of them get neglected.

I've got the international vegan lunchbox book (the second one)- there were a few recipes in there that looked appealing although I haven't made them yet.

But i'd totally be down for a swap! I have a lot of vegetarian and easily vegan-izable cookbooks that other people have bought me that haven't seen much use.

I don't know if this is big enough for a formal swap, but if someone just wants to pm me, I'd be happy to just do this one on one. I have enough to swap with a couple people. Actually, I'd be happy to just give some away as well. With bonus random history book from my collection!

I've used Vegan Lunch Box a bit when I was doing my final year rotations, there were some cute things in there (though I had to modify things a bit for my super hungry appetite) and it was kind of fun. But I haven't used it in ages now.

I've been doing my best to resist as much as possible (I still fall off the wagon). But I want to go and travel overseas and other such expensive ventures, so I need to try and slow it to a trickle, at least. I have so many books and so many unmade recipes, buying new things really just puts more pressure on myself with so many new recipes to try and get through!

I actually just bought Vegan Lunchbox. I've got 2 kids, one of which is at school and I make his lunches everyday so I'm hoping there's some good suggestions in there for kids (snacks, etc).

Vegan cookbooks are definitely an addiction. Vegan Lunchbox was one of 4 I just ordered online. It's just too easy to add to cart and everything feels a little bit free when you shop online.

I just want to throw some panic into the mix (after me trying to not buy more cookbooks recently):
The most recent cookbooks I have bought recently are actually THE BEST I HAVE EVER OWNED!
Is it safe to not buy new cookbooks?!

This commment made me laugh so hard. I have a hard time finding things in vegan lunchbox to make but two staples are the cheezy roasted chickpeas and every christmas my sister makes the mini wellingtons except she makes them into two large wellingtons and does the mushroom variation. I also have the vegan lunchbox around the world book and that's probably one of my only cookbooks that i haven't made a single thing out of.

I think my stupidest vegan cookbook purchase was Fast and Fresh Vegan Pleasures, It was the first vegan cookbook I saw at any of my local stores (forever ago!) and I just freaked and bought it. Never made a single thing from it.

(if anyone wants it, I don't have vegan lunchbox!)

That was my first vegan cookbook (called something else here) and I made loads out of it then, even before I was vegan! There's a mashed potato, bean and watercress dish which is nice and another mash with spinach and chickpeas which is good.

I'm too scared to state! TOO FRIGHTENED. And I don't want to trigger the cookbook addicts. But initials VD (... no comment), TCGTVFS (ha ha), and UV...

But one must also take into account the GAZILLION other cookbooks I own that I don't use, and the many I have that are just plain bad. i.e. Sinfully Vegan (Binfully Vegan, perhaps?).

I am excited to see this one too, the author is local to me! I am next for it at the library, whoever has it needs to hurry up!

I have a soft spot for vegan lunchbox and even if I never make anything out of it again I can't let it go-that blog was step one of the go vegan journey for me. We like the hand pies, the cheezy chickpeas and the wellingtons recipe too. The second book has gathered lots of dust, however.

I got peas & thank you tuesday, and I pretty much want to cart it right now. Must. Resist.

Another book that i own that i've yet to use. It looks really good but the main coobooks that i really use are, vcon, vwav, and vegan yum yum, the others usually collect dust which is pretty sad because urban vegan has a ton of great looking recipes but i just never get around to using it like i should.
