This nutritional unicorn starts as a flake and ends up a melted nutty, creamy, cheese-resembling taste of magicalness.
If nutritional yeast could talk:
“It’s super nice to be a part of your daily diet, my new friend. Regardless of my name, I am not going to cause you bloating or digestive stress. I am simply here for you to make love too and benefit from, all day, every day!”
2 TBS of NUTRITIONAL YEAST
= 60 calories
= 9g protein!!!!
= 5g carbohydrates
= 4g fiber
+ B12 vitamins!!!
+ Other B vitamins
+ Sugar free
+ Gluten free
+ Dairy free
+ Meatless ;)
LOVE NOTE: Nutritional Yeast is a complete protein. A complete protein means the eats provides the human body with all nine amino acids it is unable to produce itself [meaning we MUST get these essential macronutrients into our bodies via food!]
LOVE NOTE CON'T: The nine essential amino acids that we must find from outside sources in eats, such as Nutritional Yeast =
Methionine + Cystine
Phenylalanine + Tyrosine
Now back to the creamy, nutty, cheesy magicalness of Nutritional Yeast …
The name of this nutritional unicorn is not the most appetizing name but what’s best is this yeast is deactivated. Unlike bakers yeast, this flakey goddess will encourage the delivery of nutrients to our cells and has zero ability to grow, expand, or ferment in our belly’s. Nutritional yeast is harvested, washed and then dried with heat.
LOVE NOTE: The heat used to produce this nutritious unicorn enables the yeast to continue to grow = Deactivated.
Once this protein packed yeast goes through its heat treatment, it is crumbled into its flakey self, enabling us to sprinkle-with-ease onto trillions of eats, such as:
Soups | This French Onion Soup recipe
Brown rice cakes
Mac & Cheese recipes
Cheesy sauce recipes
