  1. That looks amazing :D. I’ve never heard of nutritional yeast though, I shall have to look it up!

    • Nutritional yeast is designed for vegetarians and vegans and provides lots of vitamins. It is a powder like substance and has a nutty flavor. It is delicious and has 8 grams of protein per serving. You can put it in sauces, soups, smoothies, etc! Try it out 🙂
