Weelicious Lunches + Planetbox Shuttle System GIVEAWAY!

Whenever I get a new cookbook, the first thing I love to do is sit down and just look through the beautiful photography. To me, that's the most important part - that's what makes me want to make their recipe. Makes me want to eat that food. And plate it just a beautifully. 

When Catherine McCord of Weelicious sent me her newest book after it's release last fall, Weelicious Lunches, that's exactly what I did. 

Let me tell you more about it... AND enter for your chance to WIN your own copy + a Planetbox Shuttle System so you can pack your lunches just as healthy & beautifully.

Weelicious Lunches is jam packed with more than 100 lunch box ideas and recipes. They're simple, kid friendly, healthy, and delicious.

My absolute favorite part of her book, besides the beautiful photos, is in the very front of the book: There is a whole section on food allergies.

She details each of the recipes in the book if they are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and/or nut free. I love this! A quick, at a glance view of what's safe for your family! 

However, as most food allergy families know, even if something isn't listed you can always adapt! That's exactly what I did with the Cheesy Waffle recipe from the book.

I took her delicious Cheesy Waffle recipe featured in the book and subbed it to make it gluten & egg free.

You'll have to get the book for the full recipe ;) but to make it allergy friendly, I used GF All Purpose flour, an extra 1/4 cup of liquid, and a flax egg. When I made the recipe, I cut it in half, so only one flax egg replacer was needed. Since Little Miss is fine with dairy, I used regular cheese shreds but it can easily be made with non-dairy shreds instead, as well. 

I was impressed right away with how light and fluffy the batter was. I poured it into my hot, greased waffle iron and within minutes I was swatting Little Miss' hands away to not eat them all! 

I sliced our waffles into "pizza slice" shapes that made them easy to handle and fun for kids. We packed ours up for school for Little Miss with marinara for dipping, veggies & fruit on the side, in our Planetbox Shuttle System. 

They were fantastic!
