Top 20 Recipes of 2017

Here’s the top 20 most viewed recipes that I posted on Healthy & Psyched in 2017!

They’re all vegan friendly and have a healthy twist.

There’s a nice mix of savory and sweet recipes from all throughout the year. Some of the recipes that I posted at the start of the year were higher up on the list than I expected, but it makes sense considering that they have had the most time to get viewed. For example, I LOVED the chocolate pudding protein balls that I created at Christmas, but the recipe has been on the blog for less than a month, so it’s not surprising that it has been viewed less than the beetroot latte (in number 1 spot), which was posted in January 2017.

    We’re thinking about veganism at the moment and your list of recipes demonstrates very well that you don’t have to give up treats and taste.
