Every Monday on her YouTube channel, food trends expert, Dana McCauley gives us the low down on the trends that are happening in the food world. Stop by FBC on Tuesdays for a little extra insight from Dana on how you as a food blogger can use this information in your work!
As food bloggers you’ve likely used yogurt in dozens of ways to create delicious recipes and healthy living tips for your readers. While you may have used plain yogurt to make savoury recipes such as meat marinades, dips and salad dressings, most of the rest of the world is only now discovering that yogurt is even healthier and more versatile when it’s considered as a savoury food.
Soon you’ll be seeing more recipes and products on the market that highlight the healthy aspects of yogurt in new ways. Most interesting – and I hope most inspiring for food bloggers! – are the many new snack ideas that are emerging in recipe books and on US store shelves that feature yogurt combined with vegetables.
How many of you have plans to explore the savoury side of yogurt on your blog? Do you see your readers embracing savoury yogurt parfaits or replacing their hummus with labneh or do you think savoury yogurt will be a passing fancy in Canada?
