There are times when I simply don’t have the bandwidth to put more than two or three ingredients together for a meal. And when that’s the case, I reach for powerfully-flavored pantry essentials that add zest, spice and richness to foods. […]

Vegan Las Vegas: Trip Recaphttp://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-las-vegas-trip-recap/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-las-vegas-trip-recap/#comments Sun, 17 Aug 2014 13:36:11 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3539 This past week we enjoyed a few days in Las Vegas, Nevada, somewhere I’d never managed to visit before. I’m not a gambler, but I was excited to go primarily because I’d heard about how friendly the city of Las Vegas has become to vegans in recent years. We decided to stay at the Encore […]

Egg Substitutes in Vegan Cookinghttp://www.homemadelevity.com/egg-substitutes-vegan-cooking/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/egg-substitutes-vegan-cooking/#respond Sun, 10 Aug 2014 15:50:59 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3516 Eggs can be tricky. It’s simple to find alternatives to a plate of eggs -  a vegetable-packed tofu scramble or a savory chickpea flour omelette comes to mind. But achieving the moist quality of baked goods and other traditionally egg-laden recipes can be difficult for new vegans. Many people are looking for alternatives to eggs because […]

Vegan Cheese Substitutes That Aren’t Cheesehttp://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-cheese-substitutes-arent-cheese/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-cheese-substitutes-arent-cheese/#respond Sun, 03 Aug 2014 13:28:18 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3508 Many new vegans find themselves missing cheese, but don’t particularly care for cheese substitutes or don’t have easy access to them. I get it. Back in the days before Daiya and Teese, the cheese substitute situation was bleak. I looked at what was available and said, “How am I supposed to replace cheese….with THIS?!” But […]

What Do Vegans Eat? A Week in the Lifehttp://www.homemadelevity.com/vegans-eat-week-life/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/vegans-eat-week-life/#comments Sun, 27 Jul 2014 13:51:13 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3480 Occasionally I like to reflect on what I’m eating by keeping track of my meals for a week. I’m not obsessive about it, but one thing I’ve found is that when you write down everything you eat, you can clearly see patterns, things you’re doing well, and possibly room for improvement. So, what do vegans […]

How To Deal With Negative Peoplehttp://www.homemadelevity.com/deal-negative-people/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/deal-negative-people/#comments Sun, 20 Jul 2014 15:16:06 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3460 Many new vegans struggle with the occasionally unintentional, sometimes minor, but at times very hurtful behavior of friends and family because of their vegan diet. I don’t like to focus too much on the topic of negativity, and I’m fortunate to deal with very little of it myself directly. That said, I couldn’t care less […]

You may try some new spices. Perhaps you introduce some new seasonal vegetables to your salads. Maybe you experiment with some different recipes. And yet, you crave an extra something. As I often mention, you don’t need to shop anywhere […]

It’s hard to resist a beautifully designed cookbook packed with untold delicious vegan recipes. I convince myself that when I get a new cookbook, I’ll discover culinary secrets inside that I never could have imagined. My […]

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. As soon as I had pocket money as a kid, the first things I bought were Twinkies, Devil Dogs and heavy metal cassettes. Not the most thoughtful investment strategy, but they made me happy. I probably would have consumed an entire box of Twinkies if they were available to […]

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 […]
