a blog about a girl who decided eating plants was the way to go

We love popcorn… we eat it just about every day for a snack.  It’s cheap, full of fiber and just yummy!

One of our favorite variations of popcorn in our dairy-eating days was Parmesan and butter popcorn.  Since coming across Nutritional Yeast, we’ve been in heaven, and can once again enjoy [one] of our many favorite snacks again!  It’s got a nice little tangy, cheesy flavor to it, and it’s just yummy!

I make our popcorn with very little oil (like 1Tbsp for every 6-8 Tbsp popcorn).  Once popped, I add 1-2 Tbsp Earth Balance (it’s a vegan butter) and about 4-8 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast (depending on how ‘cheesy’ we want our popcorn).

One of the fabulous things about Nutritional Yeast, is that it’s a good source of Vitamin B12.  When you are on a plant-based diet, it’s a little bit more difficult to absorb this vitamin, as it’s found primarily in meat.  Since Nutritional Yeast is the only reliable food source of B12, it’s a great idea to add it into your regular diet.  Vitamin B12 is the only vitamin we [adults] take in our house, so you could always do that as well.  But don’t miss out on the yumminess that Nutritional Yeast has to offer!  It’s also really good sprinkled on pastas (basically anywhere you’d use Parmesan or other cheeses as a flavoring).
