Today, I’m sharing my Top Pinned Recipes in 2013 ~ these are the recipes that have been pinned the most on Pinterest over the past year.
As 2013 comes to a close, I’ve been having some fun looking back on the past twelve months to see the Top Ten Posts for 2013 and the Top Pinned Recipes in 2013. Pinterest is mostly about the visual appeal of the food presented, but it is also a great practical resource for people looking for recipes that work and cooking inspiration.
My recipes are all intended to provide you with healthier options that won’t make you feel deprived. Whether it’s a lightened up dessert, like my Skinny Berry Cheesecake Trifle, a healthier appetizer, like my Skinny Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip, or comfort food like my Oven Braised Chicken Cacciatore with Rosemary, you’ll be able to satisfy both your sweet tooth and desire for comfort food with less fat and calories than most recipes.
My post on 100+ Greek Yogurt Recipes features tons of sweet and savory recipes, from appetizers to pancakes to main courses to desserts, that have all been lightened up using Greek yogurt. And for those of you that are looking for a little detox after indulging a bit over the holidays, my Blueberry Banana Smoothie, Beginner Green Tea Green Smoothie and Peach Green Tea Smoothie are great options.
As we enter the New Year and think about returning to a healthier lifestyle I hope you’ll use my Recipe Index as inspiration and a resource for making clean eating, lighter meals for yourself and your family.
And now, without further ado, here are the Top Pinned Recipes from my blog in 2013:
1. Skinny Berry Cheesecake Trifle
2. 20+ Brain-Boosting Breakfast Recipes
4. 16 Clean Eating Thanksgiving Side Dishes
7. Skinny Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip
8. Oven Braised Chicken Cacciatore with Rosemary
9. Blueberry Banana Yogurt Smoothie
10. Crockpot Cuban Black Bean Soup
Do you use Pinterest for recipe inspiration or to find practical recipes that you can make for youself and your family? I’d love to hear.

What a delicious round up of recipes! It’s interesting to see the difference between your top pinned recipes, and your top googled recipes. How did miss the Chicken Cacciatore? Gorgeous dish and another excuse to use up the rosemary in my garden 🙂 Happy new year to you and your family, and I’m looking forward to more of your healthy and delicious recipes in 2014!

I am looking for ways and recipies to use Shiratike Noodles and are they as nasty as some of the people say?
Claudia, I usually rinse the shirataki noodles before using them. Here’s a recipe I used with these noodles: https://jeanetteshealthyliving.com/2012/03/red-curry-coconut-noodle-soup-recipe.html
