Question #1:

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:

  • Protein: 71%
  • Carbohydrates: 18%
  • Fat: 11%

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.

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.

Which is Healther Almond Milk or Soy Milk?

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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!
