Sugar Cravings: How To Deal With Themhttp://www.homemadelevity.com/sugar-cravings-deal/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/sugar-cravings-deal/#comments Sun, 29 Jun 2014 14:14:35 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3394 I’ve always had a big-time sweet tooth.

Is Vegan Cooking More Time Consuming?http://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-cooking-time-consuming/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-cooking-time-consuming/#comments Sun, 22 Jun 2014 13:14:47 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3373 One concern I hear from new vegans is that cooking seems to take up more of their time than before. And while now I’d say, “Noooo, vegan cooking actually takes LESS time,” I have to acknowledge how these people are feeling. In fact, I felt the exact same way when I first went vegan. Back then, the […]

It’s a great group where we share not only what’s going on in life and business, but discuss food, recipes and great places to dine. Since it’s NYC and many things are often more difficult than […]

I get so many questions every single week from people who want to be vegan but feel it’s time-consuming or labor intensive.

Now you may say, “Whoooaaa, isn’t that a little extreme? Vegan is one thing, but raw?!?!?” Sure, there are some folks who follow a 100% raw food diet. But for most people, myself included, it’s easy and enjoyable to integrate raw foods […]
