Raw Foods Thursdays: 4/4/13

Whether you’re a weekly contributor or just stopping by for the first time, welcome! Thank you so much for joining our fun and for spreading the news about Raw Foods Thursdays. The more who link up, the better our opportunity to learn from each other as we plan our meals for the week and experiment with uncooked, plant-based creations. So, please share on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest…or just shout out the window…It’s Raw Foods Thursday!

Seriously now, this raw foods link up party is just 8 months old, and it has taken a while to build. While many of us create delicious, healthy, gluten-free meals on a weekly basis, they aren’t always raw. Weeks may go by when you don’t have anything to share. I get it! But I’m ever so thankful that you keep coming back. Last week we had a whopping 20 submissions!

This week I’m highlighting all of the recipes that I personally made from last week’s Raw Foods Thursdays. I loved every one of them.

Avocado Date Smoothie by Katja of The Savory Lotus

It’s like green pudding!

“Peanut Butter” and Caramel-Filled Chocolate Eggs by Gabby of the veggie nook

Here’s my version:

Yes, they’re all gone now.

Chocolate Raspberry Creme Smoothie by Tessa the Domestic Diva

My birthday breakfast! What a delicious way to start a special day!

And those are just the ones I’ve tried! The rest are pinned on our new Raw Foods Thursdays Pinterest board for later!

What do you have to share this week? I can’t wait to see!

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!

    Hi Heather,

    I’m out of town this week, but just checking my email here (you know, to keep on top of it) and wanted to stop by and check out some of the submissions this week. I just love this link party – so many inspiring recipes. And that smoothie DOES look like a great way to start any day…and how perfect for a birthday!! :-)

    • Heather says:

      Amber, I hope you had a wonderful spring break. Time away can be so refreshing. How fun that you stopped by even while out of town. Hope you found something delicious to try.

      Hugs, friend!

  4. Thanks for letting me know about this fab link party! Happy to be a part of it :)

  5. Wow your eggs look so amazing and pretty! Much nicer than mine! Thanks for featuring them :)

    • Heather says:

      Oh, not even, Gabby. Yours are gorgeous! I was surprised at how easy it was to roll the dough in the chocolate. And I kept it raw by placing the chocolate mixture in a metal bowl and putting it in a sink with warm water. GREAT recipe!

  6. Hi Heather,
    Since I know you like creamy smoothies with coconut or cashews, I thought I’d better link up my latest green smoothie featuring both ingredients 😉

    P.S. Was it your birthday a few days ago??! If so, happy belated birthday! Hope you had a wonderful time with you loved and lots of fab treats.

    all my best,

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.
