B12 is needed to make red blood cells and not having enough can lead to anemia which can make you feel weak and tired. Most people get more than enough B12 from eating meat, eggs, milk, and cheese. Vitamin B12 deficiency anemia usually occurs when the digestive system is not able to absorb the vitamin - if you have pernicious anemia, have had surgery to remove part of the stomach or ileum, or if you have problems with the way your body digests food. Not eating enough foods with B12, which is rare, but may occur in people who eat a vegan diet and older adults who don't eat a variety of foods can also cause a vitamin B12 deficiency (WebMD).
I had never used nutritional yeast in any recipe, so I was a bit apprehensive of putting it on our popcorn. However, because it's a good source of B12, I gave it a try...
|Popcorn with nutritional yeast|
1/2 cup corn kernels
2 Tbs grapeseed oil
3 Tbs nutritional yeast
salt to taste
Fortunately the whole family enjoyed it - enough so that I had to make another bowl.
