These are the best low-carb recipes from our blog for the year 2017. These recipes are perfect for low-carb, keto, Atkins, diabetic, gluten-free, sugar-free, and Banting diets.
As the year draws to an end I have been spending time looking both forward at 2018 and back at 2017. While we have big changes ahead, I look back with gratitude for all of your support.
The year 2018 brings about great change for our blog. One huge change is that Harper will be leaving the blog. On January 8th, she will embark on a 6 month mission trip to Haiti, Jamaica, and Belize. When she gets back, she will be heading to college. It’s not going to be easy letting go of my daughter, business partner, and cherished friend.
While letting go is a difficult step, I have been preparing for this change for a long time. Over the past year, I have gradually been learning how the website works, how to photograph food, and how to edit photographs. I actually have found that I love being able to use my creative side. With each recipe, my photos improve, but I know I’ll never be able to write like Harper does.
In addition to preparing for Harper’s absence, I am gearing up for new challenges. One of these is to create more video in the coming year. I just finished my first video a few months ago and plan to do more like this. I would also like to dabble with doing more instructional videos. Who knows, I might even step out of my shell enough to do some Facebook live videos!
Another change I’ve been planning for since I started the blog is to write health related articles. While starting the blog as a food blog seemed like an easy way to dip my toe in, I intended for it to grow from this. As both a chiropractic physician and a naturopathic physician, I have a strong interest in natural medicine and nutrition. I want to include articles on health, focusing first on ketogenic and low-carb diets. This year, I plan try an article or two and see how it goes over. Don’t worry, I will still continue publishing recipes on the same schedule.
Looking back at 2017, it has been amazing to see how much our blog has grown! The thing I love most is that I feel like I’m starting to get to know some of you, my followers, through the comments and social media.
Thank you all for your help with growing our blog! Every “like” and comment on Facebook and Instagram, and every re-pin on Pinterest helps us more than you can imagine. Thanks also to all of you who have made purchases through our Amazon affiliate links. I’m not a huge fan of having advertisements on the blog, but doing so allows me to not charge for my recipes.
As I look back at the year, it is fun to go through and see what recipes were favorites. These are the best low-carb recipes of the year according to page views. I wish all of you a joyous and prosperous 2018! Enjoy!
