I’ve posted about using this on popcorn before, but I use it on popcorn, kale chips, pasta, vegetables, baked tofu, etc. Basically, if I’m looking for that nacho-cheese flavor, this is my go-to, particularly if I don’t want the oil of Daiya or don’t have any to use.
This recipe makes quite a bit, but it keeps nicely for later!
1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 – 1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons turmeric
Sea salt to taste
Mix and sprinkle over whatever (I use a spray of olive oil for items that are dry to make it stick). Store in a ziplock bag or tupperware.

Tonight, I thinned my radish plants, again. I didn’t enjoy it.
I don’t like thinning plants. It feels like waste to me. It feels like plant homicide. In a word: boo.
But, it’s necessary. My radish plants are not even very big yet, but already I could see the difference between the plants that were further apart and those that were clumped together. The plants that had more room had stronger looking, thicker stems, and they were a little taller. The plants that were very crowded had extremely thin stems, and when I pulled them, they had barely rooted at all.
It’s that way for us, too. We have to be willing to pare away some things if we want to be strong and healthy. Sometimes it’s bad habits or unhealthy patterns we need to thin away. Other times, it’s memories of hurt, anger, or shame that are holding us back, but that we haven’t quite let go of yet. Maybe it’s people or relationships that are not beneficial to us or to the others involved. It could even be things in our lives that we don’t need (physical things, like too many doodads to dust).
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.

We all do this. It’s nothing to be ashamed of (because, really, that would just become another radish plant in your already crowded patch), but it’s something to know and to be willing to examine in our lives, so that we can take steps to thin away what isn’t serving us.
