Raw Foods Thursdays: 3/21/13

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.

Check out this fantastic tutorial on sprouting by Mellow of A Life Unprocessed.

Love sushi? Want to make it raw? Try this Sunflower Sushi by Betty Rawker. Her sunflower seed-based “rice” looks wonderful!

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:

Healthy Shamrock Shake

Raw Spicy Garden Soup

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!

  1. Hello dear! What wonderful highlights this week :) I’m going to share my creamy blueberry pear smoothie this week, even though it’s almost the exact same as your shamrock shake 😉

    Hi Heather,

    Happy Thursday. Great picks from last week. I love those hemp balls – they look amazing.

    I pinned all of your highlights! :-)

    This week I am sharing a raw peach hemp power smoothie. It’s so creamy and rich! I’m addicted.

    Have a great rest of your week.

    Hello! This is my first time to link up to Raw Foods Thursday; thanks for hosting! I shared Passionate Peach Pudding or Puddin’ depending on where you’re from. 😉 Happy spring!

  4. Will check out the sprouting tutorial (and more from this week … Better Than Nutella Cheesecake for sure!). We used to sprout seeds for our finches. They LOVED them! We have a super secret multi-million dollar facility in our country that only creates sprouts for high-end restaurants. It has no sign, etc. The word is getting out from delivery guys who take in supplies. 😉

    I’ve linked up my fruit smoothie that was a repurposing of a party fruit platter. I think/hope my recipe qualifies. If not, please delete.

    Happy Friday, Heather! xo,

  5. I haven’t shared in a while. Finally sharing something; it’s been a few weeks. Enjoy!
    Vanilla Cashew Butter Balls

  6. Sad I missed this last week, but I love reading through all the recipes. :)

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.
