Happy, Healthy New Year from The Spicy RD! My Top 12 Healthy Recipes from 2013

Top 12 Healthy and Delicious Recipes of 2013 // The Spicy RDI thought about sharing my top 13 most popular healthy and delicious recipes from 2013, but then I figured if I am still blogging in 2038, gosh, that would be a lot of recipes to share!

So… Instead, I settled on the 12 most popular recipes from The Spicy RD in 2013, so you could have one to try for each month in 2014. 

Although I created them to be enjoyed by EVERYONE, they are all 100 % gluten-free {like every recipe here on The Spicy RD blog}, plus they are all vegetarian {although I am not a vegetarian, I feel best following a mostly plant based diet, so ~75 % of my recipes are vegetarian}, and many just happen to be vegan as well.

It’s interesting to note that all of the “raw” recipes I created in 2013 turned out on my most popular list. Maybe I should change my blog to “The Spicy RD in the Raw”… Betcha’ I’d get a lot of new followers 🙂 Click on the recipe titles in blue for links to each recipe.
