Whatever you end up calling it, I surprised myself with the versatility of this creamy vegan nacho cheese sauce recipe. Dip raw veggies or chips in it. Drizzle it warmed on top of steamed broccoli, cauliflower, or a medley of roasted vegetables. This recipe would make a great cheezy pasta sauce, […]

On Breaking Up With Cheesehttp://www.homemadelevity.com/on-breaking-up-with-cheese/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/on-breaking-up-with-cheese/#comments Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:15:15 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=4320 I know from emails and conversations that many of you struggle with the idea of parting ways with dairy cheese. Eating cheese is a habit, and an addictive one which I write about here. So it’s understandable that with cheese seemingly everywhere, it can be hard to resist. As someone who used to enjoy entire meals of cheese, […]

Vegan Sausage Pizza Showdownhttp://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-sausage-pizza-showdown/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-sausage-pizza-showdown/#respond Sun, 14 Jun 2015 13:36:09 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=4305 You may have heard me bellyaching over the past few weeks about my lack of an operational kitchen. With renovations that seem interminable, I’ve been eating takeout and preparing only the most basic of meals. I don’t ordinarily eat a lot of frozen prepared foods, but I thought this would be a good opportunity to […]

Savory Split Pea Souphttp://www.homemadelevity.com/savory-split-pea-soup/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/savory-split-pea-soup/#respond Sun, 07 Jun 2015 13:28:43 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3883 I love the comforting simplicity of split pea soup, but most classic recipes call for ham hock. To achieve that smoky, smooth, fatty flavor in this vegan version, I did few things. First, I included smoked paprika, which adds a rich, smoky flavor. It also adds a reddish tinge to the soup, which I don’t […]

So while I love browsing kitchen stores and investing in gadgets, I’ve had to dial back acquiring nifty, single-use culinary devices in favor of the essentials. I get a lot of questions about the types of kitchen gear you […]

I started bulk cooking when I realized that a busy career, commute and lifestyle wasn’t always compatible with making healthy food from scratch every night. And […]

10 Quick-Cooking Ingredientshttp://www.homemadelevity.com/10-quick-cooking-ingredients/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/10-quick-cooking-ingredients/#comments Sun, 17 May 2015 11:57:24 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=4255 I often use quick-cooking methods and ingredients to create simple, nutrient-dense meals. Combining a grain, a legume, a vegetable or two and a sauce is a simple way to eat really well. But when you’re making food from scratch, some grains, legumes and vegetables take significantly longer to cook than others. Here’s a list of quick-cooking ingredients to help you […]

It was the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival and despite it being a noisy, bustling event hall jammed with booths, demos, and thousands of visitors, Victoria captivated the room. Weaving together personal stories, humor and thought-provoking information about a vegan lifestyle, she left […]

How To Clean Up Your Diethttp://www.homemadelevity.com/how-to-clean-up-your-diet/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/how-to-clean-up-your-diet/#respond Sun, 03 May 2015 12:53:24 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=4231 In many ways a vegan diet is so simple, you can operate on auto-pilot. Enjoy fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, grains and seeds every day and you’re basically set. It’s hard to mess it up too much. But with numerous technically vegan, yet unhealthy food options available, sometimes the occasional treats turn into habits. You’re […]

Nature has variety built in, and without any extra effort, we can regularly shift our eating to take advantage of fresh foods, and liven up our meals. […]
