If you saw my last post on our February Raw Foods Potluck, you may be thinking that raw dishes are extremely complicated to make. Well, some of them are! The bruschetta that I brought took several days as the bread had to dehydrate over night, and then I made two layers of raw toppings. But not all raw dishes require an extraordinary amount of time or complicated ingredients. In fact, many of them are quite simple.
This week I’m highlighting a few recipes from last week’s Raw Foods Thursday that caught my eye, because they used a handful of ingredients to make something raw, healthy, creative, and yummy. Simply delicious.
Make some almond milk from sprouted almonds, add chia seeds, honey, and cinnamon. Simply delicious. Thanks, Miachel!
Here’s another magical chia creation that’s simple and delicious.
Love chocolate and coconut? Then you must try these paleo, sugar-free treats.
Banana, tahini, coconut oil in a dessert. Seriously. Can you get any simpler?
These entries have inspired me to see what I can create from a few simple ingredients. I’ll start off by linking up one of my favorite simple treats called Berry Almond Crunch. What do you have to share?
Here’s how you can participate:

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!
