As we kick off another new year, I’ve been looking back at some of my most popular posts of 2016 here on This West Coast Mommy. As usual, my recipes continue to be some of the most frequently read and shared content, including some older ones from way back. That’s why for the fourth year in a row, I’ve put together this list of my most popular recipes of the year. (If you’re curious, you can also check out my Top 10 Paleo Recipes of 2013, Top 14 Recipes of 2014, and Top 10 Paleo Recipes of 2015.)
All the top recipes for 2016 are gluten-free, and most are dairy-free and paleo-friendly. For anyone starting a Whole30 challenge this January, many are Whole30 compliant or can be made so with minor accommodations. Scroll down to find the links to each recipe and see what inspires you!
These grain-free and sugar-free cabbage rolls are far and away my most popular recipe. While this one takes a bit more work than most of my other recipes, they’re delicious and perfect for Sunday night family dinners! Gluten-free (GF), dairy-free (DF), Whole30.
Slow cooker curry is a game changer for sure. Set it and forget it until it’s time to serve this aromatic Thai curry. GF, DF, Whole30.
I love a good stir fry for using up left over veggies in the fridge. This one includes yummy toasted cashews! Omit the honey and choose coconut aminos to make it Whole30. GF, DF.
This delicious fall recipe is paleo, vegetarian, and can easily be made vegan. I love the addition of roasted nuts and pumpkin spices! GF, DF.
This post started out as a giveaway, but continues to get views through the holiday season. Roasting half a turkey is a great idea for smaller holiday dinners! Omit the optional wine to make it Whole30. GF, DF.
This is hands down my family’s favourite way to eat salmon, and a great weeknight dinner entree! GF, DF, Whole30.
We make these delicious roasted sweet potatoes in the campfire when we go camping. Adding a few optional marshmallows make it a treat, but you can always leave them out to keep it paleo. GF.
Coconut milk makes creamy, fluffy scrambled eggs without any coconut taste! Omit the cheese to make it dairy-free and Whole30. GF, DF.
This gluten-free meatloaf is baked with the sauce right on for lots of flavour. Leave out the honey to make it Whole30. GF, DF.
Okay, this one isn’t even close to paleo, but everybody needs a treat once in a while! This Canadian holiday classic dessert bar is made gluten-free with gluten-free graham cracker crumbs. GF.
