Month of Meals Recipe Box – July 2014

An entire Month of Meals for your July Recipe Box!

July Recipe Box - Month of Meals Menu Plan
This month, with the #MonthofMeals plan, we’re mixing it up.  I’ve come to realize that when it comes to cooking, despite what’s on my calendar for the day, most nights just don’t go as planned.  An ingredient is missing, my schedule is off, I just don’t feel like mac ‘n cheese.  Okay, that’s a lie.  I always feel like macaroni and cheese, but that’s not on the menu every night.

So, instead of basing the menus on the day of the month, we’re compiling once massive July Recipe Box, with recipes based on diet (vegetarian, gluten free, etc.), and ease.  I hope you’ll find this layout even more user-friendly… but, I want to hear your thoughts!

Do you prefer a ready-made calendar of meals, or do you like having a bunch of recipes to choose and use as you please?  Comment below, and at the end of the month, one commenter (my spell checker says that’s not a word, but you know what I mean) will be randomly selected to win a $10 Visa gift card on July 31st.

    These look delicious! As a vegetarian of 23 years, I am especially excited to see the plant-based options. Especially the cocoa bean plant. A person can never get quite enough plant-based options from coca beans!
