Raw Foods Thursdays: 6/20/13

Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! My kitchen is almost packed. I just made five dehydrator trays worth of raw bread to last me the interim so I could pack the dehydrator. The spiralizer still sits there. I think I’m going to have to spiralized everything in my fridge over the weekend so I can pack it! How can one live without veggie noodles this time of year?

I have a few quick highlights from last week to share. It is incredibly hard to choose which recipes to highlight as they are all so creative and delicious. But here are a few favorites.

Favorite Summer Salad

I’d love any veggies drenched in this delicious Tuscan Avocado Dressing by The Raw Project!

Favorite Summertime Treat

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Popsicles by Laura of The Knoxville Holts

Favorite Raw Dessert

Raw Mango Coconut Tartlets by Coconut & Berries

Favorite Informative Post

7 Tips for Raw Vegan Travel by Quincy of Shugurcan (I will be using all of these tips in two weeks!)

Favorite Smoothie

Vanilla Pear Protein Smoothie by Laura of Laura’s Gluten-Free Pantry

Thanks for all of the incredible submissions. Make sure you check these out as well as the other delicious entries from last week.

This week I’m sharing my Raw Spinach Pesto Pasta.

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 is Raw Food?
  • Plant-based meals that are not cooked.  Dehydrators may be used.  (The raw foods community has differing views on temperature, but the range is between 104 and 118 degrees.) Feel free to link up recipes that use a slightly higher temperature as long as they could be made at 118 with a longer dry time.
  • Raw Ingredients: vegetables, fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, gluten-free sprouted grains, beans, and oils.

What isn’t raw?

  • Anything cooked or heated 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!
  • If your recipe contains an ingredient like maple syrup that makes your submission “almost raw”, please share it anyway. Raw sweeteners are easy to substitute.

What do you have to share?

    Thanks for featuring my dessert! All the entries look so good- that Tuscan Avocado dressing has got me especially intrigued.

      Emma, I can’t wait to make that tartlete! I’m crazy for mango, and I can’t wait to try that raw crust! Thanks for linking up again. I’m off to see what other wonder you have up your sleeve!

  2. What a great roundup.. I linked a kale and blueberry salad with a cashew orange dressing. Thanks for hosting and have a great week.

  3. Hi there! I was silly, and forgot that the radishes are actually boiled. I can’t remove the recipe, but if you do that’s great. Thanks!!!

    • Heather says:

      But it looks soooooo yummy! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll take it down. Once we had a HAMBURGER linked up! HA! A plant-based salad like yours could just slip right by after that one! :)

  4. Laura says:

    Thank you so much for featuring my Smoothie Recipe Heather. I will respond soon about the vanilla protein powder options-just been a crazy busy week :) I need to try those chocolate popsicles…yum!

    Hi Heather,

    Great features!! Everything looks so refreshing and delicious. :-)

    This week I am sharing an informational post on how to decrease plastic bag waste (from frozen fruit). Easy, user friendly tips.

    Have a great weekend!


    • Heather says:

      I LOVE your post! Funny, I think I was over at The Tasty Alternative reading all about your freezing method while you were linking up here! Great minds, right? 😉

  6. Hello Heather, it’s Smoothie testing time again – My Blue Bayou Blueberry Smoothie is calling you…
    You need extra vitamins in this hectic time around your move 😉

    • Heather says:

      Thanks, Sandra! I was looking for something quick for breakfast today! We have tons of frozen blueberries, so this perfect! Look forward to that squeeze of lemon too!

  7. Adria says:

    Hey Heather! I’m back and I’m sharing my favorite raw marinara this week. I’ve tried a lot of them, and this is now my go-to. It has my secret ingredient to make the texture chunky. :p Enjoy!

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.
