Survey Results: More of What YOU Want

What Wholesome Cook readers want

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the survey and entered the giveaway! The results are in and while congratulating Alex on winning the knife, the great news is that now I will be able to tailor my recipe posts more to what you’re after. Fab, isn’t it?

What Wholesome Cook readers want

Okay, I know it’s going to be hard to please everybody at the same time, but one thing I’ve found about our way of eating is that a mixed diet with a healthy twist is something many of you can easily relate to and are trying to implement in your homes, too. So, let’s get to the nitty gritty of what you’re after and what it means for the content of the blog.

According to the poll and comments you’re after:

  • Meals in under 30 minutes
  • Giveaways were a popular choice at second in the poll
  • Paleo dishes (grain- and dairy-free) therefore mostly gluten-free and coeliac-friendly
  • Vegetarian and vegan requests were only 0.25 of a percent ahead of quality meat lovers’, so that makes it half-half
  • Sugar-free (low fructose and FODMAP) desserts have also been mentioned
  • Egg-free dishes, especially desserts
  • Working lunches without the need for reheating got quite a few votes too.

According to this eclectic mix of needs and wants, I will continue to:

  • post a mixture of meat-free and organic meat recipes – oftentimes the meat can be left out so my vego readers can be happy too!
  • work on sugar-free, low fructose recipes with the inclusion of FODMAP treats, too!
  • add more Paleo recipes (one ticking a few other boxes is coming your way tomorrow)
  • offer exciting giveaways, perhaps even commit to having some goodies for you every month as a thank you for stopping by, reading and sticking around. I’ve got one lined up for May already so stay tuned!

I also wanted to thank Wiola (a fellow Polish foodie) who gave me the idea of a tickable filter box that would help people with multiple allergies browse my recipes. You will notice I’ve implemented the tickable box on the right sidebar, but I am still working on making it work properly to filter recipes containing ALL selections at once.
