#NutritionalYeast Flakes by Sari Foods Review




Nutritional Yeast?
Have you heard about this 'Superfood'?
The only Yeast that came to mind was bakers or Brewers yeast :-/
I hadn't heard until I was chosen
 to review this curious product. 
 
After researching I found that nutritional, baker's
and brewers yeast are all different animals! 
Baker's yeast is still active and could grow
inside your stomach, depriving you of nutrients,
and brewer's yeast, is inactive but distinctly bitter.
Who knew?
Well,  I and you do now!

Nutritional yeast is considered by many to
be the most valuable supplement available
and is used as a flavor enhancer
as well as a nutritional aid.
All Vitamins & Nutrients are Non-Synthetic
& 100% Naturally Occurring.
  
One ounce of nutritional yeast contains
14 grams of protein, full spectrum of B vitamins including B12, amino acids, protein, folic acid, biotin and minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, chromium, and selenium and only has 79 calories.

This is a super wallop packing product!
Add to that, weight loss, lots of antioxidants,
 an energy boost
and you just may be feeling like a new you! 
I've heard it's great on vegetables, tacos, pasta,
popcorn, soup, baked potatoes, dips, salads ~
and I can't wait to try it on those.....
But I was anxious to try this in an
actual recipe to get the full flavor.

To get you started Sari Foods sends
along a recipe e-book,
how cool is that?

With several choice recipes to choose from,
 I decided to make ''Mac and Cheese with a Kick''!

While the pasta was boiling I gathered my ingredients,
which included most items I keep on hand - yay!

It was easy and pretty quick to make.
I have to say I was surprised at how good it tasted!
And even more surprised when everyone ate it
and there were no leftovers!

The sauce was a little thick to start,
so I just added a little more milk and
it was just right.
This is the recipe I used from their cookbook ~

Mac and Cheese with a Kick

Ingredients:
8 Oz. favorite pasta
1 1/4 Cups non-dairy milk ( I used what we had, Non-fat)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Heaping tablespoons flour (spelt, rice, tapioca or all-purpose)
½ Cup Nutritional yeast
½ Teaspoon garlic powder
¼ Teaspoon chili powder
¼ Teaspoon chipotle powder (omitted)
Sea salt, to taste

Directions:
Cook your pasta according to package.
Drain and place back in pot, set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat, add flour and whisk to incorporate.
Continue whisking and cook for 2 minutes.
Add milk slowly, whisking constantly.
Turn heat to low and cook until sauce thickens, about 8 minutes, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat.
Stir in nutritional yeast, salt, garlic powder, chili powder and chipotle powder.
Stir until everything is incorporated and smooth again.
Taste for flavor. Add sauce to the pasta, toss well, add more milk as needed and serve right away
From Sari Foods:

PRIORITIZE YOURSELF WITH NATURAL (NON-FORTIFIED) OVER SYNTHETIC. The reality is that most nutritional yeast products are fortified with synthetic, man-made vitamins that can be harmful to your health. At Sari Foods, this goes against everything we stand for - so we decided to change things, making a nutritional yeast product that is 100% whole food based and naturally occurring - nothing synthetic here - just as nature intended!

OPTIMIZE YOUR HEALTH WITH SUPER NUTRIENTS. Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast is naturally comprised of 50% protein (a complete, bioavailable and vegan source), over 20% fiber, contains all 18 amino acids and 15 different minerals (including iron, selenium and zinc) as well as a natural vitamin B-complex and Beta-glucans (known for their extreme immune enhancing properties plus their ability to lower bad cholesterol)

FIGHT AGING & FREE RADICALS. With highly absorbable amounts of nucleotides (the building blocks of DNA & RNA), Nutritional Yeast promotes cellular repair and regeneration. Then, by combining the two antioxidants glutathione and selenium, Nutritional Yeast Flakes create a special enzyme called glutathione peroxidase that is known to neutralize free radicals and help protect us from their damage.

END YOUR ENERGY CRISIS. 15-40% of Americans are deficient in B vitamins which can lead to deep and ongoing fatigue, brain fog, irritability, depression, and even insomnia (as they play a crucial role in melatonin production). The body depends on B6 to make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which affect both mood and feelings of happiness. Improved Vitamin B intake helps us sleep well and helps balance our hormones and increase our energy levels, clarity & overall mental function.
