Snacks. They can be tricky. Today I put stuff on popcorn and I liked it. Not butter but weird stuff like nutritional yeast, which is a food ingredient I never adventured with before I ate vegan. I’ll describe it as a healthier, non-fluorescent version of Kraft chz powder. I hear it has vitamin B12 so that’s cool. It’s in a ton of vegan recipes, but my first time using it was simple and easy, so I recommend you give it a try if you’re curious. I put it on popcorn and I did it again today and then proceeded to make other kinds of popcorn…
It’s a simple yet satisfying process because first you get the nice popping noise on the stove while you pop the corn, and then you get to put it in a baggie with other ingredients and shake it, which is satisfying because you’re shaking something. I’ll let you pick the song you wanna shake to.

P.S. The “You’re the nutritional yeast to my macaroni” picture is of a card I saw at City Bird. It inspired this post.
