The New Year inspires new resolutions to eat well and live a more healthful lifestyle – and as we’ve shared with you in past issues of the One Yogurt Every Day newsletter, nutrient dense foods like nonfat and lowfat yogurt can play a key role. In this issue, we’ll focus on the how, by tapping into unique and flavorful dishes from around the globe that make it easy to take advantage of yogurt’s benefits every day.
Nonfat and lowfat yogurt can go beyond the breakfast table to reduce the fat in salad dressings, sauces, dips and marinades without sacrificing flavor and texture when used as a replacement for other oils. In baked goods, it can replace oil, butter or sour cream for lighter treats. Our hope is that the recipes and tips that follow will have you dipping, stirring, and championing the many uses for this dairy staple!
