I’ve made your chicken fajita salad recipe, but substituted nutritional yeast and liquid aminos, for the cumin and oregano. It was really good. Any thoughts on nutritional yeast or liquid aminos, or is it just a glorified soy sauce?
The macronutrient breakdown of nutritional yeast is impressive, as it’s primarily made up of protein.
Nutritional yeast macronutrient ratio:
Nutritional yeast is also a good food substitution for cheese, since it has a cheesy flavor.
Based on this, if you are intolerant or you choose not to eat dairy, nutritional yeast is a healthy food swap.
I don’t have an issue with nutritional yeast, since it is a pretty natural food alternative.
So go ahead and enjoy it.
However, when it comes to liquid aminos, I have a little bit of an issue, since it’s made from soybeans.
Even if the soybeans are non-gmo (i.e. non-genetically modified), they are still the unfermented type.
As I’ve always said, stay away from consuming soybeans and soy products.
However, if you do consume soy products, make sure they are the fermented type, such as miso and tempeh, not tofu.
Tofu is not a fermented type of soy.
Since liquid aminos are not fermented, I would recommend you stay away from liquid aminos, and enjoy the nutritional yeast.
Brad, can you tell us about the Master Cleanse Detox diet?
Here’s a link to the full post on what is the master cleanse diet.
Wondering about the Green Coffee Bean theory from Dr. Oz. Is this something that can help you lose weight?

Hanna93 on YouTube asks:
I’m thinking of going paleo, but I’m worried about not getting enough calcium without dairy in my diet. Do you take supplements or are there other non-dairy foods that are high in calcium?

Next question is from YouTube username: MileyCruz125.
Can you make some bread substitute suggestions? For example, I’ve been using plain rice cakes instead of bread to make an open faced turkey avocado sandwich. What would be a good bread substitute for an English muffin egg sandwich?

I am not sure where you live, but if you live in Los Angeles, we NEED to get coffee! (PS: I am @Dubagee on twitter).
I love, love, love that you brought up making it a lifestyle change, so many people do not get that they have to make a lifelong commitment to being healthy to achieve long term sustainable results! So glad I found you on FF too!
Thank you for the info on liquid aminos and nutritional yeast. Been seeing them mentioned all over the place and have been wondering if they were really good for you or not, esp the aminos.
Great post as always and love your answers! A great sub for liquid aminos is coconut aminos (made from coconut and not fermented soy). Thanks for clearing up the calcium debate too with Paleo! It’s so easy to get in calcium from sources other than dairy!
I agree with you on the diets. Unless you make a lifestyle change, you won’t have lasting results. I’m cautious with anything labeled “miracle”, “quick”, or “fast”. There is no such thing!
I cant believe it took me till FF to find you.
