My Top 6 Blog Posts: Healthy Food and Benefits

That's right, "Top 6"; not 5 or 10, because that's just boring!

After yesterday's post on creating a healthy work-life balance, work is winning right now.  In the name of blogging, I remain determined to post to anyone who cares to stop by and read, so here are my top 6 blog posts in terms of views since I started "Just Add Cayenne."

Make Shroom for Mushrooms

Make Your Own Sugar-Free Pudding with Stevia

Polyculture vs Monoculture: How Are Your Fruits and Veggies Grown?

Food Review: EnergyFirst Natural Whey Protein

Protein: Builder, Producer, and Regulator

Eat All the Junk Food You Want

When I first started, most of my posts were centered around the benefits of and information about nutrients in food as well as certain hot food topics.

Now I make it more personal by writing about certain events in my life and focus more on just the food and recipes.

So, after seeing some of these posts, which style do you prefer?  I tend to enjoy blogging more on personal topics and about recipes I created or tried.  Maybe a few food benefits posts should be worked in again?

As fellow readers that I appreciate so much, please let me know what you like or don't like on my style.  I aim to please!

Bonus Question: Can you guess what the first picture at the top is?  It has do do with a post I made about 3 or 4 weeks ago, and I'll make an updated post soon.


  1. Hi RC!
    I think you should stick to what YOU enjoy the most - writing about more personal topics and recipes... Because - if you think about it - you ultimately do incorporate information about health benefits of various foods/diets with/without directly stating the facts. It's inevitable because your recipes are healthy! :)
    I enjoy your blog very much and think it keeps getting better and better.

    1. Hi Veronica! Thank you very much for the compliments; that really means a lot. You make a great point about the subtle food facts/info that can be worked into the posts.
      I am always determined to make whatever I can into something healthy, even if it is not always a tasty end result. It's a fun learning process.

      Again, thank you for your kind words and I hope to continue to improve my posts/blog.
