Get Nourished recipes: Delicious snacks for a vitamin B12 boost
This week on Get Nourished, Luke Hines and Zoe Bingley-Pullin are adding a fun vitamin B12 twist to your favourite quick and easy snacks.
However, the risk for deficiency can grow with a plant-based diet and as you age because of the body’s decreasing ability to absorb vitamin B12 from food.
Luke’s tuna tacos add a fun vitamin twist to the popular Mexican dish, topped with a healthy dose of avocados and a splash of lime.
Zoe’s delicious spread of curried egg on sourdough is perfect for those looking for a bit of spice, garnished with rich and fresh micro herbs.
