6. Nutritional yeast
The name doesn’t sound appetizing, and the fact that it’s a flaky inactive yeast that looks like fish food doesn’t help the cause either, but trust us when we say that nutritional yeast is where it’s at. Its cheesy and nutty flavor—think parmesan cheese—is perfect for sprinkling on popcorn, baked potatoes, steamed veggies, pasta dishes, and whatever else calls for grated cheese (everything?). A quarter-cup serving contains 6g of protein and is loaded with vitamin B12, a mineral vital for muscle growth and repair and typically only found in foods like eggs, dairy, meat, and fish.
