Happy Thursday! I hope you’ve had a great week so far. This week I’m really looking forward to Friday after a holiday celebration in kindergarten.
Yes! The 100th Day of School stretched into the 101st Day of School, which meant two days of counting practice, a classroom buzzing with energy, way too much sugar as we counted M&Ms and Skittles, made Froot Loop Necklaces, and created 100 trail mix. This was a week to be craving the simplicity of raw foods!
Hopefully you had a chance to check out our January Raw Foods Potluck complete with Blood Orange Truffles.
I also hope you enjoyed last week’s Raw Foods Thursdays where we had some lovely submissions by some health-inspired friends.
Mellow shares all here!
You know I’m a sucker for smoothies, so this Vitamin Fruit Smoothie by Happy Healthy 365 was just up my alley. Since it’s mandarin and orange season…in Greece…and Whole Foods…you’ll definitely want to enjoy this delicious smoothie! Secret ingredient?
This week I’m submitting a salad inspired by our January Raw Foods Potluck. What delicious rawness do you have to share?
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!
