How to Avoid a B-12 Deficiency | Raw Food Diet

So, B-12. Some people are worried, “Am I going to get
my B-12?” There’s two things; the raw food diet, most
typically, is also a vegan diet. No animal products. That’s the main place people get B-12, is
animal products. But you definitely can get B-12 on the raw
food diet. The first way you can get B-12 is just by
plants that are in the ground. The soil naturally has B-12 in it. So even you don’t fully clean the vegetables
a little bit, sometimes we don’t always, you’re going to get some B-12 just from that. But the best way to get B-12 is from nutritional
yeast. Nutritional yeast is not raw actually, but
I don’t know of a raw cook that doesn’t use B-12, because it has a great cheesy flavor
to it, an awesome flavor to it, and it’s full of nutrients. So it’s not like it’s not healthy. It’s got tons of B vitamins, it’s very high
in protein, and like I said, it’s got lots of minerals and so on, and it’s got a lot
of B-12. So if you just have some nutritional yeast
occasionally, you’re going to be fine with B-12, and it’s going to add a lot of taste
to your dishes too, by having nutritional yeast. You can even just sprinkle it on like a zucchini
pasta with marinara, and it’ll be like a Parmesan cheese. It’s quite good.
