Raw Foods Thursdays: 4/10/13

Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! Last week was filled with creative raw snacks, salads, juices, dressings, and smoothies. I’ve pinned them all on the Raw Foods Thursdays Pinterest Board. I’ll be pinning your creations from now on so we can share the raw foods love with even more friends.

It was really hard to choose a sharing theme this week. I thought of Raw Munchable Snacks. But then I would have had to leave out this raw jam.

Did you know that you could make jam with chia seeds? It completely makes sense since chia seeds absorb moisture and expand. I must try this Blueberry Blackberry Chia Jam by One Small Vegan.

But here are a few snackable entries that you could nibble on while fueling your body with delicious raw nutrition.

Raw Chili and Cumin Kumara (Sweet Potato) Chips by Om Nom Ally

Crunchy Raw Buckwheat Granola by Dawn of Small Footprint Family

But I couldn’t resist sharing this juice as well. Just munch on a few broccoli florets while juicing and make it a Raw Munchable Snack!

Broccoli Stem Green Juice by Lindsay Loves Veggies.

This week I’m submitting Banana Bread Protein Bites which are perfect for munching before a workout or for a little extra energy to get you through the afternoon. You can find the recipe on my guest post at The Balanced Platter.

Now it’s your turn! What do you have to share this week?

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 featuring my recipe for buckwheat granola. This week I’ve posted two recipes for sugar snap peas, which we are harvesting from our garden this week.

    thanks for hosting!

  2. I’ll take the Sweet Potato chips, your Banana Bread Protein Balls, and that Carrot Sunrise drink please! :-) So much goodness here per usual!

    Hi Heather,

    Stopping by to check out your picks from last week and WOW! I have to agree with Shirley, those sweet potato chips look amazing. And I look forward to making your banana bread protein balls very soon!

    Have a great Friday and weekend.

    Thanks for hosting Heather! I’m adding my lemon bars this week. It’s always great to see all the yummy raw treats!! Have a great night!

  5. Thanks for your comment on my Thai papaya salad Heather – I was going to link it in but then dithered over whether my reference to soy sauce would exclude it. Thus, I was grateful for your suggestion to submit it :)

    • Heather says:

      Kari, I’m so glad you did! I can’t wait to try green papaya. Soy sauce is definitely an option, but I’m so glad you offered a raw substitute too. Thanks so much for participating!

  6. Thanks for letting me know about Raw Foods Thursdays-just linked up! And, thanks so much for your comments on my blog, and letting me know how much you enjoyed my Super Duper Power Salad :-) Have a fabulous week!!

    • Heather says:

      So I made your salad AGAIN. I was out of gogi berries from the last time I made it, so I subbed dried strawberries this time. It was sooooo delicious! I just love all of the nutrients you packed into one salad. And the sweet taste is such a change from my normal salty/herby dressings. Thanks so much for sharing it here!

  7. Hello Heather :-)

    How funny that just when we were chatting about post workout chocolate protein snacks my entry this week comes after the Chocolate Power Protein Bowl, hah, how fitting, and how very yummy!

    My Creamy Green Smoothie can’t quite compete on that level, but I’m sharing it anyway 😉

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.
