Top 10 Recipes Of 2016
#10: Paleo energy bites – This is a great recipe to satisfy your sweets cravings while you’re on Whole30 or a paleo diet.
#8: Cheesy Boston clam dip – This recipe is inspired by the 2016 Academy Awards Best Picture winner, Spotlight. I participated in an Academy Awards-inspired virtual event with several other bloggers, where we created recipes for each of the Best Picture nominees.
#7: 10-minute taco soup – This recipe is perfect for those nights when you have minimal cooking time – but still want to make a tasty meal.
#6: Einkorn flour tortillas – In 2016, I read Wheat Belly by William Davis, and learned about einkorn wheat. This type of wheat is an older strain of wheat that predates many of the changes made to wheat in recent years, making it a healthier option to traditional wheat/all purpose flour. If you are looking for a flour substitute that has less of an impact on blood sugar, check this out: Einkorn Flour
#5: Chicken banh mi meatballs – This flavorful meatball recipe is one of my favorites from the year. Eat them plain or make a banh mi sandwich or pizza.
