I found nutritional yeast in a natural foods store in the bulk-item bin section. I had to scour the store to find it. It must not be well-known in my Midwestern city because it was almost hidden on the lowest shelf.

I use amazon for things that I can't find in the store, particuarly cacao nibs, which I am addicted to, I confess. As far as nutritional yeast, I use it to make quick pizza - a tortilla, pizza sauce, sprinkle with nutritional yeast, top with sauteed veggies & italian seasoning if you like and pop in a hot oven - so good and so easy....

emoticon I found it a lot easier too when I cut out meat completely...but I have to agree with HOPEFULHIPPO I love cheese! I have been very good to eat much less of it since changing my diet. I have recently bought some Vegan cheese slices and have yet to try them, I also have heard nutritional yeast can taste like cheese but I can't seem to find it in the stores near my house...any suggestions where to get it anyone?? I'm grateful for any suggestions! emoticon

I hear that nutritional yeast tastes like cheese. I bought some but haven't tried it yet. Has anyone else used this?

It is easy once you decide to commit. I tell everyone I'm a flexitarian, but have been on the Happy Herbivore plan for nearly two weeks fully. I love it...it's vegan.

Unlike you however, the biggest issue I've been having IS cheese. I love cheese. LOL So like yesterday on my pizza, I did add a little parmesan. I hear Bob Harper has the same weakness. :p

You do what you can. Glad to hear it's working out for you.

If I've decided a certain food does not belong in my beautiful body, it does not go in, regardless of who misguidedly stuck it in a sandwich. I hate waste too which is why I have a firm commitment to eat a diet with a low ecological footprint, i.e. vegan with as much local produce as I can get.

All the best,
Alan

I hate waste too. Good job of what you ate. It isn't always easy especially eaten out and at other peoples houses.

I have been pescatarian (no dairy, eggs or meat except fish) for only a short time, and this is easier than I expected. I even went out of town for work and was able to stay with the plan entirely one day and almost made it the second day but the catered lunch "veggie wrap" had cheese. I probably could not have taken out the cheese if I tried, but then it would have ended up in the trash. My reason for going vegetarian is because I'm appalled at factory farming, so once a restaurant puts a food in a dish the damage has already been done.

My husband has been supportive, and he's "flexitarian" -- lacto-ovo vegetarian most of the time but carnivore sometimes.
