The New Nutritional Powerhouse

Ok, so it’s not new. Actually, I have no idea how long it’s been around. And until I entered the blogosphere, I had never heard of it. So what is it?

Nutritional Yeast!

First of all, let me just say, I know the same sounds a little… strange… but let me assure you, this stuff is like magic! Not only is it a main ingredient in vegan mac n cheese



but it also gives a nice cheesy kick to snacks! How about some cheesy popcorn?

Nutritional yeast is loaded with vitamin B12, so it’s especially great for vegans 🙂

Have you tried Nutritional Yeast yet?

It’s been a pretty good week this week. I’ve been working out consistently & sticking with my no snacking after 8pm challenge. Oh, and this week I finally tried squash on my salad!

I suppose it’s hard to see the squash in there, among the peppers, chickpeas, black beans, onions, and spinach… but let me tell you, it was the star of the show! It feels good being a *reformed* salad hater!

Have you tried anything new on salads these days? I’m always looking for something new to spice up my greens!

Happy Friday 🙂
