Hi Triangle Woman.
I've been using their "liquid aminos" for years. I didn't know that they also made a nutritional yeast ( aka "vegan crack" ).
It is only 24 calories a tablespoon so using it is a pretty good move on your part.
I know this is an old thread, but I'll add my two cents to the pot...
I'm trying to work through why I am craving more "Braggs Nutritional Yeast"
I feel better after I eat it and miss it when I can't sprinkle some on my veggies or popcorn or fish. It has a wide spectrum of B vitamins, so maybe that is what I'm missing from my diet.
At any rate, it is helping me to avoid craving carby things.

I know quite a few people who really enjoy kale chips which give the leafy green benefits and the crispy crunch of a "snack" food.
Beyond that, good that you're finding what works for you.

I don't do so well with grains and starches (they tend to make me crave food) but i'm in 200% agreement about the leafy greens as being helpful for me.
Here is a whole list of ways I avoid triggering appetite and cravings:
Never, ever, EVER give up!
From BMI 53 (336 lbs) to under 30. Now aiming for less than 20% body fat.
Goal 155 +/- 3%
I recently re-discovered two foods that are very powerful allies in helping me control my appetite.
1. Bob's Redmill High Fiber Hot Cereal
2. Green leafy cooked cruciferous vegetables. Kale, collard greens, turnip greens and mustard greens.
Eating either of these a few times a week helps me feel more steady, and less compulsive about eating when I don't feel physical hunger.
Nicely, number two also provides a boost to my calcium intake and a boat load of other good nutrition.
Happy Monday :)
