Top 20 Pinterest Recipes of 2012

As a nutritionist, I’m a huge fan of Pinterest. I use it to compile recipes for my clients, but I also use it to expand my dietary horizons. I probably make 1-2 new recipes from Pinterest per week – some of them are atrocious, some are incredible and most are somewhere in the middle. 

I’ve compiled my absolute favorites from 2012 in this Pinterest board. These are the recipes that have found their way into our family rotation, the ones that my toddler requests (Parmesan Kale Salad) or that I turn to when we’re all starving and there’s almost nothing in the house to eat (Lee’s Lentil Veggie Soup).

What’s so Great about these Recipes?

I’ve made each of them at least 3 times, so I can confidently say that

1) They’re consistently delicious. Nothing worse than making a recipe once, loving it, and then finding that it’s mediocre after that.

2) They’re pretty easy to make. I rarely make 18-step recipes with complicated ingredients, and when I do I rarely make them again even if they’re delicious.

3) They’r “real food” based, aka unprocessed. Some may need slight modifications to be completely unprocessed, but they’re easy adjustments.
