Raw Foods Thursdays: 2/7/13

Love is in the air! Do you have your Valentine’s Day sweet treats planned? If not, maybe Raw Foods Thursdays can help you out! Raw foods for Valentine’s Day, you ask? Absolutely! For a few ideas, just look at what was linked up here last week.

I’m sold! Are you thinking raw goodness for Valentine’s Day? If so, link it up! I’m linking up a Kale and Cherry Salad.

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!

  1. Thanks for hosting this Heather! This week I’m sharing my Paleo Apple & Nut Porridge! Hope you’re having a great week :)

    I just realized that I mindlessly posted a recipe in your linky that is not raw! I am so sorry; I was considering that it was gluten-free and posted it before realizing the mistake I had made.

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. 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. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
