2021 is basically officially wrapped, which is WILD. What a year it’s been!! And as much as I love to look forward to what’s next, I also love to look back and see what the highlights of the last year were, so here they are. The recipes, workouts and products you guys loved most in 2021 🙂 Cheers to the new year and to making it the best one yet!


Enchilada SkilletHands down one of the most popular recipes on my blog. A deconstructed version of my favorite Mexican meal: enchiladas. Muy excelente and takes about 20 minutes.

Zucchini BreadMoving into a house with a garden bursting with zucchinis was the universe begging me to create a gluten-free, dairy-free zucchini bread recipe. It took several rounds to make perfect – this one is IT.

Chicken & Veggie Stir FryThe ultimate, healthy and delicious clean-out-the-fridge kind of meal. One of my favorite meals to pack in tons of veggies but does NOT lack flavor! Plus over rice it’s so cozy.

Teriyaki MeatballsThis one’s on heavy rotation. We love teriyaki, and leftovers for lunch? The dream!

RGE CobbThe ultimate salad bowl for a crowd.. Or for 2! This bowl packs all the flavors and is so satisfying. Perfect for a weeknight dinner or a Saturday lunch 🙂 

RGE Famous Loaded SammyBridger and I were HOOKED on this sandwich for months straight. I finally shared the exact details and I think you guys are just as obsessed as we are. 


Wedding Prep Surprise WorkoutOne of the final burners we crushed before leaving for our (second) wedding in Mexico and I have to say this one was INSANE. Still one of my top favorites and perf to #wedshred

1-Year Anniversary Live WorkoutMaybe one of the most fun lives EVER. Had to bust out all the classics for this one to celebrate one year of working out together from our living rooms. Crazy it feels normal at this point??

Rec-Sweat Release Celebration Workout — Leg/Booty DayRecreation Sweat bands were a highlight of 2021 for all of us, right?! This was the first workout that we all got to use them together, so you know you’re going to walk away with your glutes absolutely screaming (in a good way).

Elite Lower Body Live WorkoutThe last ever workout from the kitchen where GOOD // SWEAT was born. Warning — you WILL be sore!! Killer lower body day & one of the community faves. 

RGE Classic 7.5 Minute AbsIs it just me, or is this a part of everyone’s weekly routine now?? This quick circuit changed the game for abs everywhere.

35-min Back & Bi’sI think we all realized how much we love training back in 2021. This is one of the workouts that gets reposted in our private facebook group ALL the time — like one of the most popular workouts to date.


Gym Shark Training Shorts – Gym Shark played a big role in my 2021 activewear wardrobe so it’s only appropriate that these shorts made this list!

Curve Love High Rise Skinny Jeans – I am still obsessed with these jeans! Probably one of my favorite finds of the year.

Nike Free Metcon 4 – Amazing shoes to train in and/or wear casually. So comfortable and supportive and love the fun color options!

Also Wellness Bra – Alo makes the best bra tops and I have several in my weekly rotation but this one was definitely a go-to in 2021.

lululemon Align High-Rise Pant – I don’t wear a ton of lululemon but I do love their Align leggings and apparently so do you guys! 😉

Custom Wedding Guest Book – I knew this was popular back from when I originally shared it and included it in Our Cabo Wedding Lookbook but WOW you guys went crazy and I’m so glad since it supports a small biz!
