brewer’s yeast

A Tasty & Nutritious Snack

I have a new favorite snack that is so easy, tasty and healthy.  A friend gave me the idea for this a while ago (Thanks, Dana!).

Recipe:

  • 1 bag organic plain popcorn  (An option: Newman’s Own Organics — go for the no salt, no butter variety)
  • a really good drizzling of extra virgin olive oil (probably 1 tbs total)
  • 1 – 2 tbs of Brewer’s Yeast Powder *not the flakes (Easily found at your local healthfood store. One option: NOW Foods)
  • sea salt to taste
  • mix it all up
  • Enjoy!

So it’s a combination of fiber + good fat + B-complex vitamins. The Brewer’s Yeast actually makes the popcorn taste a bit cheesy and I’ve found this is my favorite way to take it (much better than adding it to water or juice). I made this last night and I literally could not stop eating it. I love when something so nutritious is also so delicious!
