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. 

Healthy eating is all about getting the right amount of nutrients,  including vitamin B12.

Responsible for supporting energy production and maintaining the nervous system function, vitamin B12 is naturally found in foods of animal origin.

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. 

Try these fun and quick recipes for a healthy vitamin B12 boost by Luke Hines and Zoe Bingley-Pullin, as seen on Get Nourished on The House of Wellness TV show.
