Raw Foods Thursdays: 6/27/13

Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! We are all packed and ready to head out. Since the next few weeks will be filled with traveling, staying with friends and family, unpacking, and settling in to our new home, I’ve found a way to keep Raw Foods Thursdays running despite the unpredictability of my personal life.

For the month of July, Raw Foods Thursdays will be hosted by these 4 lovely ladies:

So make sure you visit their blogs to participate in the raw fun! In case you forget, I’ll post a reminder about the weekly hostess here each Thursday.

And now on to the highlights from last week!

Favorite Breakfast

Raw Nut-Free Porridge by Erin of Sift, Stir & Savour, hostess of Raw Foods Thursdays next week!

Favorite Raw Snack

Raw Beet Chips by Janet at The Taste Space

Favorite Healthy Makeover

Raw Oreo Cookies by Davida of The Healthy Maven!!!

Favorite Salad

Raw Kale and Blueberry Salad with Orange Cashew Dressing by Judee of Gluten-Free A-Z Blog

Favorite Meal

Gimme Gimme Garden Burger! by Detached and Connected

Favorite Smoothie 

Super Purple/Green Thick-Shake by Claire of Almost Skinny Vegan Food

You can see these and more at last week’s event. Now it’s time for you to join in the fun!

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.

This week I’m submitting my Beautiful Berry Beet Smoothie (title revised by Shirley of Gluten-Free Easily).

    Hi Heather!
    Best of luck with the move.

    That berry beet smoothie color has me hypnotized!

    I’m not sure about what’s happening with the Raw Food Thursdays. Do we still link up here or at the sites of whoever’s hosting that week?

    I’m posting here just in case this week. I’m sharing a Corn, Tomato and Green Bean salad where a couple of things are blanched but old be left raw as well. It’s delicious and perfect or BBQ pot lucks!

    • Heather says:

      Jodi, for the month of July you will link up at the sites that I listed above. So next week head to Sift, Stir & Savour. See you there!

    Safe Travels! Can’t wait to see where this new adventure takes you.

  3. Awww, you didn’t have to give me the credit for the name change! That smoothie is stunning though, isn’t it? 😉 Real food is always so beautiful! I’m linking up an old favorite, Blueberry Banana Foamie. I made a version this morning, adding a hefty portion of salad greens to it. So good, but more blue green than the original.

    I’m so excited for your big move! Hope all goes well!


  4. Kathy says:

    Hi Heather. Good luck with your move! So excited for you. Can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. :-)

    This week I am sharing two recipes. A yummy summer salad and a nutrient dense key lime popsicle.

    Take care, Heather. Again, so excited for you and this new chapter.


  6. Kat says:

    Good luck with the move! Sounds like a crazy month but hope you get time to relax too. Thanks for hosting this event, as always!

  7. Thanks for posting these and good luck on the move!

  8. Heather,
    Thank you so much for featuring my kale and blueberry salad. I’m so glad that you are not cancelling raw Thursday for the next 4 weeks. What a great idea to have another blogger host.
    Good luck with your move.

  9. Ooh lots of great recipes this week! Looking forward to trying some of these out =)

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.
