Got Nooch?

A favorite client of mine has been on a challenging health journey for herself and her kids. It’s one thing to take it on for yourself, but it’s a whole lot more when it’s your babies. There is a reason we went to middle school and high school together. God knew that my passion for health would be needed in her life one day and I am so grateful that I get to be a part of her story.

Her son has been sick a lot. The poor thing seems like he’s getting sick every time she turns around. The doctors are blaming it on the germs at daycare, but I don’t buy that. I refuse to accept it’s-the-daycare’s-fault.

A symptom is a signal something is wrong.

Welcome to the way I think. There is always a reason. I won’t settle.

We cannot just throw medicine (enter: antibiotics) at everything. Medication is a bandaid. It does not solve the problem, it only manages it.

Got nooch?

Nooch, or nutritional yeast, is a widely known ingredient in the plant-based world. It just might be the ingredient you’ve been missing in your pantry. A scientific study has shown that “just taking like an eighth of a teaspoon of nutritional yeast worth of beta glucans, or even just a 16th of a teaspoon’s worth, appeared to cut illness rates in half. And, those on the yeast that did come down with a cold only suffered for about three days, compared to more than like nine days in the placebo group.” Check it out for yourself!

You can find it at your grocery store, usually in the baking aisle. It is a simple and inexpensive ingredient to add to your food. It is used as an alternative to cheese in a vegan diet and is delicious in soups and pasta, over roasted veggies, on popcorn, and in eggs. It’s vitamin rich and protein packed.

I believe that our food choices are at the root of most symptoms we experience. Food has the power to transform our health.
