Even though the summers in Minnesota is so short-lived, I never miss any opportunity to grow my small vegetable garden.

Kale and collard greens are my favorite greens, alongside fresh herbs! :)
Nutritional yeast is a beneficial supplement particularly helpful for vegetarians and vegans. It's rich in Vitamin B-12 which helps boost energy, rich in proteins, low in calories. It adds a cheesy flavor to foods. It promotes skin, hair, nail health, and immunity, it keeps insulin levels low and also useful in pregnancy when vitamin needs are high.
It should be used on a daily basis as a topping or in dips, in sandwiches, pasta, instead of cheese sauce, etc.
