This year, healthy food bloggers really upped the ante when it came to making breakfasts, dinners, and desserts that were as buzzworthy as they were delicious.

A coffee-infused super-smoothie? Check. Baked vegan “Doritos” with a tangy dusting as finger-lick worthy as the vending machine original? Check. Tacos that are healthy, completely vegetarian, and so easy to pull together that you could whip them up in 15 minutes? Check, check, and check.

Rounded up here are 10 recipes Well+Good readers freaked out over, spent Sundays whipping up, and forwarded to their friends over and over again. Whether you’re Paleo, vegan, going high protein or low sugar, you’ll have a reason to do the same.

Here are the top 10 recipes featured on Well+Good from 2016.
