Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! I had a fun week playing with raw food as we had our Raw Foods Potluck on Sunday night! I can’t wait to share all about it as it was one of our best. (Do I say that every time?) Thanks so much for helping me decide what to bring!
If you’re new here, this is a raw foods event for everyone. Whether you’re a raw foodie, love fresh foods, or you are just interested in improving your health by eating more plant-based foods…welcome! This is a place where we share and learn from each other. We had a great turn out last week, so take a look at a few highlights before you link up today.
I was excited that Quincy of Shugurcän shared this Raw “Rice” Pudding. Welcome, Quincy! (Note that this pudding contains wheat berries, which are not gluten free. For those of you who are gluten intolerant try substituting soaked oat groats.) Soaked grains and nuts? Love!!
This Chocolate Almond Cheesecake by Christina of Dandelions on the Wall inspired me to experiment with my own cheesecake. I LOVED her filling but tried out my own crust with an epic FAIL! I’ll definitely follow her recipe to the T next time!
Now what delicious rawness 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!
