Chicken breast is always a top-logged food on MyFitnessPal, but this year, pantry staples and plant-based eating took center stage — and a little chocolate never hurt anyone.

Here, our 10 most-read recipes of 2020, plus a bonus editor’s pick — taking it to 11. Cheers to a fit and happy 2021!

1. CAULIFLOWER-CRUSTED SPINACH FETA PIE
Cauliflower is our low-carb best friend these days. And it plays a big role in healthifying traditionally rich and buttery Greek spanakopita.

2. CHOCOLATE N’ICE CREAM
Believe it or not, just four ingredients go into this vegan n’ice cream: Frozen bananas, cocoa, almond milk and a little vanilla are blended together for a cool, creamy treat.

3. PUMPKIN SPICE PROTEIN SMOOTHIE
Ditch the sugar bomb that is the PSL for this protein-packed smoothie that’s best in the fall/winter seasons, but can be enjoyed year-round if you please.

4. INSTANT POT CHICKPEA TIKKA MASALA
Ah, the Instant Pot. It’s a great way to infuse Indian flavors in no time. And this recipe puts pantry staple superstars to good use.

5. INSTANT POT LOW-CARB LASAGNA STUFFED PEPPERS
In this case, the Instant Pot reduces cooking time to 6 minutes. Plus, low-carb recipes have been trending lately.

6. TURKEY AND BLACK BEAN TACO CASSEROLE
Casseroles are great meal prep dishes that last for days. Riced cauliflower, ground turkey and black beans offer a good dose of fiber and protein to keep you fuller longer.

7. DARK CHOCOLATE ALMOND MOUSSE
Just a handful of ingredients go into this dessert that’s ready in 10 minutes. The even better news: This dessert is low in added sugar.

8. USE-WHAT-YOU-HAVE CRUSTLESS QUICHE
These egg bites make great use of frozen veggies — or whatever you have on hand. These savory bites also keep your muffin tins employed, even if you’re trying to reduce your sugar consumption.

9. 5-INGREDIENT CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS
DIY chocolate peanut butter cups are way easier than you ever imagined, as evidenced by this 5-ingredient recipe.

10. CARROT CAKE ENERGY BARS
Limiting refined sugar is the name of the game in 2020, and these homemade energy bars do just that.

CANNED TUNA ONIGIRI
Another pantry staple is given new life with this Japanese-inspired boost, canned tuna fish is a far cry from sushi but is economical and a brilliant way to add some pizzazz to pandemic life.
