Raw Foods Thursdays 10/4/12

Happy, happy birthday!!!  No, it’s not my birthday, but I’m more excited about this birthday than if it were my own.  My close friend and college roommate is coming all the way from Portland, Oregon to spend her birthday weekend with me.  And while we’ll have a great girls’ weekend talking, shopping, and being pampered, I can’t wait to make a few raw recipes with her.

No, we aren’t spending the weekend in the kitchen. We have far too much else to do.  And it’s been too crazy of a week to have any sort of a menu plan at this point. But there’s one recipe that I know I’m making just as soon as she gets here.  And I wouldn’t have known about it without Raw Foods Thursdays.

Raw Baked Fettuccine Alfredo (Vegan, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Raw)

Thanks, Gabby, for sharing this recipe last week at Raw Foods Thursdays! (We can’t wait to try it!) Now it’s your turn. What raw recipes would you like to share this week?

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!

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.
