At the end of every year, I enjoy diving into my analytics to see what interests you guys the most. I have never really been one to get caught up in checking blog-related stats and numbers (I honestly only check my pageviews when companies request my numbers – great for my sanity but probably not my business!) but at the end of the year, I think it’s fun to assess everything and see what performed well on the blog and what piqued your interest in this space!
To kick off the new year, I wanted to share some of my most popular recipes, workouts and “extras” (aka my catch-all category for some of my favorite posts that don’t fall into the food or fitness category) with you guys. I’m kicking things off today with a summary of my top 10 recipes from 2016 as determined by pageviews. Only four of the top 10 were actually made in 2016 so I also included a short summary of the top 10 recipes from PBF that were actually published in 2016 below as well!
If you haven’t tried any of the recipes listed below yet, I hope one pops out at you! Please let me know if you have any recipe requests for 2017! Here’s to another year of healthy eats and yummy treats!
