Raw Granola and Raw Foods Thursdays: 11/15/12

It has been a rough week. Technologically, for this blog, for my training goals, and in the life of this Kindergarten teacher. Rough.

While training to join a Ragnar Relay team, I got a calf strain and was unable to participate in a running event that spans the distance between Chattanooga and Nashville. But I did get to cheer for the team at the finish line and hug a sweaty, delirious Husband.

Then I spilled a very expensive glass of water. A glass that I’ve kept bedside for at least the last 20 years. Okay, maybe not the same exact glass, and definitely not the same water, but a glass has been there. For 20 years. Without incident. Until Sunday night.

And we won’t even go into Kindergarten the week before Thanksgiving. Pilgrims and Indians, oh my!

But the laptop sleeps under my bed. Why? Because it’s the safest, easiest place to put it without too much effort. And it’s usually the last thing that I see before closing its lid, kissing a kitty’s head, and shoving it under the bed so I don’t feel that blinking eye through my eyelids all night long. I’m a light sleeper.

But then I was thirsty, a little earlier than usual. A little too overzealous with the reach and the entire glass of water crashed to the floor. Apparently the splash reached under the bed and through the closed laptop lid, because corrosion had already occurred when the Apple Genius looked at it the next day.

But Raw Foods Thursdays is still here, despite it all.

I’ve linked up my Raw Soaked Granola, just posted a few hours ago.

Completely dehydrated and splash free.

What raw goodness have you been enjoying 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!

Please share!

    Heather, SO sorry to hear about your laptop! Hope it could be salvaged.

    I’m linking a favorite winter salad–Bittersweet Salad with Apples and Dandelion greens.

    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving this week–without incident!! 😀

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.
