  • Is there any reason I shouldn't use nutritional yeast?

    Like any adverse side-effects?

    i like the idea of adding a cheese-esque flavor to coffee.

    There are a bajillion threads in the forum asking this very question, but Mark recently covered this in his blog as well:

    I used to love this stuff when I was vegan, but haven't bought it since. I just stick with cheese!

      Eww, in coffee? Lol.

      I use it all the time. So Delish on white rice with grass-fed butter.

      (also Delish on popcorn, heh)

        It depends on how much you enjoy cheese. I tried nutritional yeast once and fortunately Whole Foods has a very liberal return policy.

        Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          I work in a grocery co-op that is very popular with the vegetarian/vegan crowd. We sell a lot of nutritional yeast. Some people will smother their cafe plates with it. I can't stand the smell of the stuff and I have to keep myself from making a face when I ring someone up that has it. Umm does that answer your question?
          I never know what to put in these things. I write songs!

            My mother used to feed us stuff like that when I was a kid. That's one reason I only eat real food.
