Welcome back to Raw Foods Thursdays! Remember, this weekly event is for beginners and raw experts alike. Whether you are a raw foodie or you are just interested in adding more plant-based nutrients to your diet, there is so much that we can learn from each other. I appreciate each and every one of your submissions and comments. Thank you for your participation!
Here are some of the articles that I learned from last week.
These Lemon Hemp Bites by Davida of The Healthy Maven look delicious. But check out her posts about the nutritional benefits of three of our favorite raw seeds: hemp, flax, and chia. I hope you’ll learn as much as I did!
This week I’m linking up two of my St. Patrick’s Day inspirations:
What 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!
