Raw Foods Thursdays: 10/18/12

Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! This is a weekly event that I always look forward to, because I can learn from all of you as we share our raw foods adventures.

Last week there must have been cheesecake in the air. I shared my love affair with Avocado Lime Cheesecake by Heather of Sweetly Raw. And many of you submitted some amazing cheesecake recipes.  I love how many different ways you can make a cheesecake with all raw ingredients. Check out some of these delicious submissions:

Cranberry Concord Grape Cheesecake by Heather of Sweetly Raw

Raw Strawberry “Cheese” Cake by Amber of The Tasty Alternative

And there was even a Raw Halloween Cheesecake by Zoe of Vegan Brains.

This week I’ve been experimenting with raw cookies again. I have my third batch in the dehydrator, so maybe by next week I’ll be ready to share a success story! But today I’m linking up a recipe for Chocolate Almond Milk.

Now it’s your turn 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?

  1. I finally had a raw recipe to share :) These Super Simple Date Cashew Butter Balls melt in your mouth. I almost posted one before then realized that it was almost raw – I’d heated apple juice to plump raisins. So close.

    • Heather says:

      So excited that you linked up this week! And your almost raw recipe could definitely be linked up. You could soak the raisins in apple juice for a few hours. Raw foods just takes a little extra time. :)

    I love coming here and seeing all these raw foods. It’s amazing!

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.
