Last weekend was a raw blast. My friend, Karen, came to spend her birthday weekend with me. What an honor! We had lots of fun doing girl things, bike riding, checking out Nashville’s music scene, and cooking. Well, raw “cooking”. I couldn’t resist trying out a few recipes that have recently caught my eye from Raw Foods Thursdays contributors. I have decided that I’ll be living at two blogs for…well…ever. I love them!
I found some great raw recipes to share with Karen. I didn’t make a complete raw meal as there were too many other fun Nashville restaurants to try. But there were three raw recipes that we thoroughly enjoyed.
Pizza craving? One bite and these cheesy raw delights will nip it! These were great alongside raw crackers and goat cheese (sorry vegans).
Wow. Not only did we devour this dish over the weekend, but I had to make more Fettuccini Alfredo Sunday night so I’d have enough for lunch each day this week.
And since we were celebrating a birthday, I had to make a cake!
A raw cheesecake.
This. Is. Insane.
So it was a rawly amazing weekend!
I was so inspired that I made these Raw Banana Pumpkin Crackers.
And that’s what I’m linking up to Raw Foods Thursdays this week. I’d love for you to join in the fun!

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 what do you have to share this week?
