Vegan Lunch Box Sightings, At Home and Abroad

Sighting One: I have just been informed that there are 5 new copies of the original, self-published edition of Vegan Lunch Box available for sale in the UK and Europe. You can find the book along with Laptop Lunch Boxes and more at Becky and Lolo.

Sighting Two: Here's great news for those of you not in England and not able to spend a blithering amount of money for a used copy on the internet (a friend of mine recently sold hers for $100...say what?!?) The brand new, completely revised, expanded and very affordable Vegan Lunch Box is now available for preorder on Amazon.com.

I've actually laid my eyes on a copy, and I can say without reservation that it is highly adorable!! I love the way the new publishers have reorganized the recipes and restyled the book, both inside and out. All the color photographs are still there, along with a great new index (I love me a good index) and some very cute pinwheel decorations. The new, lower price probably doesn't break anyone's heart, either, huh?

$100 for a copy of the original? Wow! Of course, mine is signed, so would be worth more, but I bah humbug anyone who tries to take mine from me (and I'm not even vegan.)

I am so excited for you, and for me. I just returned to stay at home motherhood after a short venture into working motherhood and I shall be buying a copy of this to ensure that my youngest gets a healthy meal while he is at school. While I was in school and working I had the local pizza place on speed dial so I am sure that my son will appreciate having real food in his lunch box. I am off to order a copy right now!

Hi - I love your blog! I'm new to the blogosphere, but I have been packing my lunch for a long time. I am interested in becoming a vegan. When I stumbled upon your site, I was so inspired by your son's lunches and your fun approach to health. "Vegan Lunch Box" motivated me to get creative with my own lunch. Thanks! - Katie :)

Got the book yesterday. Some really lovely combinations. Your book is truly inspiring and will become a useful tool in my kitchen.

Will have to work around the meat analogues - too much MSG. Also too much chocolate in the desserts for my taste, but looks yummy.

Donna Ricci said...

Jennifer, we love your book in our house and jumped on the "two for one" sale you had awhile back, giving one to a pal. I heard you were coming out with another that had many more photographs so I gave mine away to another new vegan.

But... I cannot see anywhere that says this new version has more images than the last.

Inquiring minds...

Jennifershmoo said...

The new version is completely reorganized and contains some additional lunch menus and recipes, but the pictures are the same.

I'm thinking about possibly writing a cookbook. About how much money did you make? And how much did you have to spend to get the books made?
