What is nutritional yeast?
Nutritional yeast is commonly used to give a healthy version of a “cheesy” nutty flavor to recipes. You can even make popcorn with coconut oil and top it
with nutritional yeast. It is delicious! The health benefits of nutritional yeast are wonderful. It is a complete protein and contains many B vitamins. It is gluten-free & dairy-free!
