Paleo cheese?

Featured above is my go to power meal comprised of Kale, Quinoa, Wild Salmon, Miso Ginger dressing, and a sprinkle of Nutritional Yeast! Not only does it taste fresh and delicious, it feeds my body and brain to the fullest leaving me super energetic. Most of the ingredients are basic but let's talk for a moment about Nutritional Yeast, is it another hippy fix or is there some value in dusting your food with this powder? For the most part the Yeast is used to add flavor to foods, it is yellow in color and has a nutty cheesy flavor which makes it a good alternative for its dairy and fat filled twin- cheese. The yeast also serves as a reliable source for B12, contains essential amino acids- 18 to be exact- make it a complete protein, and is gluten free. For all my vegan/vegetarian friends this is a great way to get some important nutrients into your foods. So far I have only sprinkled it over my meals but it can be added to soups, salads, dressings, and more. Next time you are out grocery shopping, pick some up and give it a try.

Post your nutritional yeast experiences to comments….

    Very good. Paleo folk often overlook B12 thinking it’s only a problem for annoying vegans, but they shouldn’t. Especially coming from a dirty SAD. This is a yummy way to get it. It’s kind of like mild version of mac & cheese powder.
    I’ve been eating lentil soup and stir frys with nutritional yeast on them almost every day for the last two months :)
    Some people report unwanted reactions to it, so maybe sample a little bit before loading down your dish.
