Top 17 delicious new recipes of 2017 on the food blog WhitneyBond.com, featuring buddha bowls, cinnamon rolls, tacos and pasta!

This is my favorite time of the year, it’s the holiday season and the end of the year, a time to reflect back on the past year and look forward to the year ahead!

I started the tradition a few years ago of counting down the top new recipes from the year on my Instagram page and this year I decided to turn it into it’s very own blog post!

I love looking back each year and seeing which new recipes of the year really took off and grabbed the attention of my readers. I definitely take into consideration these popular recipes from the past year when planning for the new year ahead.

There were a few themes this year, bowls were big, from buddha bowls to zoodle bowls, everyone is loving the new bowl recipes (and the old bowl recipes as well, my Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls video has been viewed over 4.1 MILLION times on Facebook!)

Other popular trends this year included sweet treats, recipes with buffalo sauce and easy pasta recipes, all things I love as well!

If you’ve ever been to a PF Chang’s, there’s a 99.9% chance, you’ve had their famous lettuce wraps!

While I don’t frequent many chain restaurants, (I’m lucky to have so many amazing local options in San Diego!) I do have to say that I don’t mind a little PF Chang’s every once in a while, some Chicken Lettuce Wraps, followed by Sweet & Sour Chicken, delish! But, I also love being able to make these recipes at home for a little less money and a lot less calories!

Chili Lime Chicken Taco Lettuce Cups

It’s been 6 weeks since I started going to the gym on a daily basis (sometimes even two-a-days!) I’m just wondering why I don’t have JLo’s abs yet? Um, what’s up? Maybe it has something to do with my obsession with tacos, cheese and delicious craft beers during football games! 😉

Let’s be honest, I work out, so that I can continue to enjoy these delicious treats of life and keep a somewhat JLo-esque figure!

While I’m not willing to give up my favorite foods, such as tacos, I am willing to make them a little healthier, and that’s where I came up with this idea for chicken tacos in lettuce wraps.

All of the delicious taco filling without the extra carbs from the tortilla!
