Raw Foods Thursdays

Raw Foods Thursdays 8/16/12

7 Comments 16 August 2012

Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! The purpose of this event is to learn from each other as we improve our diets with raw foods.  Whether you are 100% raw, high raw, or you are just looking for more creative ways to eat a plant-based diet, I would love for you to participate!  Each Thursday, I’ll be sharing information about raw foods or a raw foods recipe.  I’d love for you to link up a raw foods recipe!

But wait, I’m not a raw foodie!  Don’t let that prevent you from joining in. We can all participate!  Start by linking up a simple salad. Salads are the “bread and butter” of my diet. Then find a raw dish that someone else links up to to try for next week!

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Simply link up a raw foods recipe (see What is Raw Food?), mention Raw Foods Thursdays, and link back to this post so your readers can join in the fun!
  • Please link to the recipe, not to a blog’s home page, so we can all find your raw foods recipe.
  • You may link up a recipe that you’ve made in the past. Just make sure to share something different each time you participate.
  • Be sure to leave a comment letting us know who you are and what you’re sharing.
  • Feel free to use the Raw Foods Thursdays blog badge created by the lovely, talented Heather Peters!

What are Raw Foods Meals?

  • Plant-based meals that are not cooked.  Dehydrators may be used no higher than 118 degrees.  (The raw foods community has differing views on temperature, but the range is between 104 and 118 degrees.)
  • Raw Ingredients: vegetables, fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, gluten-free sprouted grains, beans, and oils.

What isn’t raw?

  • Anything cooked above 118.
  • Anything processed.  If it comes from a can or a package that lists more than one ingredient, chances are it’s not raw!

So let’s get this raw party started!  I’m linking up the very first raw recipe I ever posted about (and before my big girl camera).   These are my Raw Curried Cashew Swiss Chard Wraps.  I love using swiss chard as a wrapper. No need for a dehydrator or fancy ingredients. And the curried cashew filling is so easy to make.

What raw meals have you made?

  1. What a fabulous event friend! Since it is so hot where I live, I linked up two refreshing raw bars-lemon and lime that are quite addicting :) Your wraps look perfect for lunch!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
