Our site, the No Salt, No Fat, No Sugar Journal, topped 80,000 views in 2021 for the first time in its nine-year history, easily surpassing its previous one-year high of 65,965 views set in 2017.
The number of visitors to the site in 2021 also was a record at 43,500, surpassing the previous high of 34,800 set in 2020.
“The Pandemic has caused people to cook at home more and they’re looking for healthy recipes,” says Journal Founder and Editor John N. Frank. “Our recipe page was by far the most popular item on our site last year with more than 16,000 views, followed by our home page with 11,100 views”
The most popular individual post was once again “Salt-free teriyaki sauce — a taste test of three varieties.”
“People who have dropped salt are looking for flavor alternatives for their cooking. Salt-free teriyaki sauce is a must for anyone trying to do healthier Asian recipes,” Frank explains.
Frank launched the blog in 2013, not long after his first stent was inserted. HE has since survived a second stent as well. More than 234,000 visitors have come to his blog since its founding, with more than 4445,000 views.
