Raw Foods Thursdays: 12/13/12

Thanks for coming to Raw Foods Thursdays!  The goal of this event is to learn from each other as we improve our diets with raw foods.  Whether you are 100% raw, high raw, or you are just looking for more creative ways to eat more plant-based foods, this event is for you!

Last week’s submissions made me gaga for chocolate.

I was ecstatic to see Shirley’s Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Nutella Almond Spread linked up. Shirley is a gluten-free master. How exciting that this recipe is raw too! You can find her recipe and links to other nutella taste-alikes at gfe.

And there was more chocolaty deliciousness from Lou of Fridge Scrapings with her RAW Chocolate Nut Fudge with Sweet Strawberry Topping.

That’s just about enough to make me crazy! Thanks so much for sharing! What do you have to share this week?

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Simply link up a raw foods recipe (see What is Raw Food?), 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!

Ready to share? Feel free to link up an old recipe too!

  2. Thanks so much for the highlight and the super kind words, Heather! You are the best! (How many times have I said that already? Plenty, and I mean it!) Raw and chocolate and a few other ingredients just seem to go together, don’t they? Love those brownies … they look incredible in that close-up shot!

    Now I’m off to check out the other entries. 😉

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.
