Raw Foods Thursdays 10/11/12

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!

Check out The Veggie Nook and Sweetly Raw. You will love them both!

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.

Raw Pizza Bites by Gabby of The Veggie Nook

Pizza craving? One bite and these cheesy raw delights will nip it! These were great alongside raw crackers and goat cheese (sorry vegans).

Raw “Baked” Fettuccini Alfredo by Gabby of The Veggie Nook

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 cheesecake.

A raw cheesecake.

Avocado Lime Cheesecake by Heather of Sweetly Raw was the perfect celebratory dessert.

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!

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Simply link up a raw foods recipe (see What Are Raw Foods Meals?), 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 what do you have to share this week?

      We are ALL glad that I made your cheesecake. I have a feeling that there will be a lot more cheesecakes in our home now that I know about your blog. Love your submission this week too!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. 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. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
