I had been vegan for quite awhile, am a trained chef, and had been running Homemade Levity since 2012. But I wanted to take my vegan knowledge and […]

How To Eat More Vegetableshttp://www.homemadelevity.com/how-to-eat-more-vegetables/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/how-to-eat-more-vegetables/#respond Sun, 22 Mar 2015 12:48:55 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=4127 Many people start out going vegan by quitting meat and dairy ‘cold tofu.’ One day they wake up and it’s plant-based eating from then on. But for others, a gradual dial down of animal products is in order. The problem is, when you eliminate animal products, you need something to replace them with. Otherwise you’ll […]

3 Ways To Move Toward Veganismhttp://www.homemadelevity.com/3-ways-to-move-toward-veganism/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/3-ways-to-move-toward-veganism/#comments Sun, 15 Mar 2015 13:25:27 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=4112 For many people, a vegan lifestyle starts with food. Whether we do it for health reasons, for the animals or the environment, our dietary choices are a big part of how we identify ourselves. But once we figure out how to navigate restaurants, discover tasty non-dairy cheese and learn how to cook our grains and […]

How To Eat Vegan In Different Cuisineshttp://www.homemadelevity.com/how-to-eat-vegan-in-different-cuisines/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/how-to-eat-vegan-in-different-cuisines/#respond Sun, 08 Mar 2015 13:22:09 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=4097 It used to be that when contemplating dining out as a vegan, people would recommend, “Eat before you leave the house.” That’s just depressing, not to mention, totally unnecessary. I like going out to eat. A lot. And most of the time, my dining companions aren’t vegan and we’re not eating in vegan restaurants. If […]

Light Bulb Moments In Going Veganhttp://www.homemadelevity.com/lightbulb-moments-in-going-vegan/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/lightbulb-moments-in-going-vegan/#respond Sun, 01 Mar 2015 14:31:40 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=4079 There are moments in going vegan that people often describe as: Something just clicked. A switch was flipped. A light bulb went on. Suddenly, I got it. I love these descriptions because they add a bit of drama to a story, and they refer to casting light into darkness. This makes sense because we’re talking […]

I know, people make that stuff. Good for them. I like to look at their food pictures. But these days complicated recipes aren’t for me. My schedule doesn’t allow it. And […]

It’s totally vegan and a versatile ingredient for creating easy and elegant savory and sweet recipes. My Spicy Swiss Chard and Tofu Feta Triangles wrapped in phyllo are always a hit appetizer. But in […]

Gardein Fishless Tacoshttp://www.homemadelevity.com/gardein-fishless-tacos/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/gardein-fishless-tacos/#comments Sun, 08 Feb 2015 12:52:32 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3978 Gardein Fishless Filets may be my favorite of the Gardein product line. They’re super convenient to grab from the freezer on a busy weeknight, and I love the slightly greasy, crispy batter and the flaky inside texture. It’s not exactly like a real fish filet, but it’s about as close as I’ve experienced. Usually I’ll prepare them […]

Beet Smoothie with Orange & Fennelhttp://www.homemadelevity.com/beet-smoothie-orange-fennel/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/beet-smoothie-orange-fennel/#respond Sun, 01 Feb 2015 08:25:13 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3959 I’ve come around to enjoying beets, but until now, haven’t prepared them very often. It’s mostly the mess factor, where pink juice seems to splatter everywhere in my tiny white kitchen as soon as I even think about the vegetable. But there’s no denying beets’ impressive nutritional profile and blood purifying properties, and I’ve been trying to incorporate more […]

Then as I continued to pull out of it, I found myself craving crunchy vegetables and varied flavors. I sometimes think of eating whole, fresh foods as my medicine. If that’s the case, then […]
