Giada: Vegetarian Is Going to Be Big in 2012

One of our favorite celebri-yogis, Giada De Laurentiis (who practices with our dear friend, yogi/foodie, Kathryn Budig) predicts that vegetarian is going to be huge next year.

When asked by YumSugar what she thought was "going to be big in 2012", Giada replied:

"Vegetarian, vegetarian, vegetarian. I think people are just really looking for lighter food on a regular basis. Because of that I'm testing out a lot of pizza recipes with gluten-free flours. Almond flour and quinoa are two of my new favorite ingredients to use in everything. I've been playing around with them a lot — how to make fresh pasta with it, how to put it into baked goods — and then, of course, agave as a substitute for sugar. I'm trying to find fun ways to incorporate these things that have actually been around for a long time, not necessarily in our culture, and make them more mainstream."
Namaste to to that!
