Young, I use nutrtional yeast a lot! But I think you've got some wrong information that it's high in calories. I think it's just the opposite. (But I'm not 100 percent for certain, so I'll try to find out and post here if it is high...but fairly certain that it's a low cal food.)
I've only been vegan a couple of years. My first experience with nutritional yeast (called "nooch" for short sometimes) was to take a wiff of it: mmmmmm, it smelled so much like cheese! But the taste was like a more sour version of cheese...but still a taste that I liked.
It didn't take long at all for me to love it! I now use it to replace cheese in soups, pizza, etc. (In pizza I'll stir it into the pizza sauce, which creates a cheezy pizza sauce taste.)
It's one of those "must have" items in my kitchen now!
