Raw Foods Thursdays: 10/25/12

Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! I’m writing from the beach, and I’ve had an incredible Fall Break so far. And while I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen this week, I have been frequenting my favorite raw foods truck called Raw and Juicy.

You can read about my last review of this amazing raw vegan cafe by the sea here.

But here’s a little raw taste.

Juice Board – What to chose???

Sipping their signature juice, the Raw and Juicy, while beach cruising is vacation at its finest.

This Acai Bowl with granola, bananas, and Acai juice has inspired me to finally make my own raw granola.

The Raw Veggie Sandwich with Kale Salad is always a favorite.

Yes, I’ve eaten at Raw and Juicy a lot this week!

Since I’m on a juice kick, so I thought I’d start this Raw Foods Thursday by linking up my Carrot Beet Power Juice.

But before we jump into this week, take a look at the delicious cookies and raw treats that were shared here at Raw Foods Thursdays last week!

Better Than Newton’s by Veggie V’s Vegan Adventure

Super Simple Date Cashew Butter Balls by Shannon of Enjoying Gluten-Free Life

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?

    Your carrot beet juice looks so refreshing! I’m sharing my Coconut-Date Chocolate Bonbons this week. I made mini bonbons tonight–so cute! Everything looks great, as always. I think I’d really like to try those fig cookies.

  2. Wow I’m drooling- so much goodness, both from the cafe and last week’s party! Thanks for featuring my cookies! This week I’m sharing my pineapple shortbread bars.

    Have a great rest of your week!

  3. Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing a recipe for Homemade Soaked Granola. It’s super versatile! Be sure to dehydrate at a low temp to preserve the enzymes. Enjoy!

    Hi Heather,

    That restaurant looks amazing! Don’t you just love those raw food finds.

    This week I am sharing raw pastas with two sauces and a raw cauliflower curry salad.

    Have a wonderful rest of your week.

    Hugs,
    –Amber

  6. I shared my Carrot Apple Raisin Salad. Heather tells me that the raisins can be soaked longer in the apple juice so it will work without heating. My mayo is homemade so it’s raw – but not vegan. But I also have a no mayo version that was awesome.

  7. Heather1 I had no idea you had a linky party…I would have stopped by sooner! I have pinned the party and shared two things, thanks for inviting me!

  8. Thanks for highlighting my Better Than Newton’s, Cat! I just had one with some herbal tea ;-)

  9. o my word, I’m literally drooling over that sandwich picture. Looks sooooooo gooooood! I’m sharing my tomato soup.

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.
