Raw Foods Thursdays 9/19/13

Raw Foods Thursday is my favorite day of the week. I have my phone set to notify me of every entry. So each ping of my phone sends me to check out another amazing recipe that has been shared. And wasn’t it brilliant of me to call this Raw Foods Thursdays instead of Fridays or Saturdays? That gives me several days to gather recipes and ingredients for the following week. And you thought this event was all about you…

Here are a few of my favorite submissions from last week.

Guava Flax Smoothie by Janet of The Taste Space


Cheezy Walnut Sauce and Creamy Sweet Potato Pasta by Chasity of My Healthy Chef


I had this pasta dish for dinner, and it was fabulous. I was surprised how tender the raw sweet potato noodles were when spiralized with this.

I’m linking up a lemony smoothie this week. I can’t wait to see what you have to share!

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!

Sharing the Raw Love:

  • All raw submissions will be pinned on the Raw Foods Thursdays Board.
  • All raw submissions will be shared on Facebook.
  • Feel free to share this event in your social media communities as well!

What are Raw Foods Meals?

  • 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.

    I hope it was a good sight to see when your phone just pinged to notify you of my raw lemon lucuma macaroons submission :)
    Happy Raw Foods Thursday!

  2. Hey Heather, I haven’t linked up for awhile just because I don’t post too many recipes on my blog. But here is my favorite, super fast raw breakfast I’ve been making lately on my road trip – my Apple Pie Bowl. Adria

      I’m so glad you’re back, Adria! The apples are starting to look so good at the farmers markets. I must get some this weekend to make this! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Hi Heather,

    Thursday already!!!

    I was super sick last week with a gnarly sinus infection and strep throat. Feeling MUCH better today.

    Today I am sharing my carob sunbutter fudge. This can easily be made raw by using raw sunflower seed butter. I’ve made it this way before. Admittedly, the recipe tastes better with the roasted sunflower seeds, but there is definitely a raw option.

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  4. Sweet – I love this bloghop! One of my favs for sure. It always gives me the best meal ideas =) Thanks for hosting!

  5. Thanks for featuring my coconut banana cream bites!

      Ann, I’m so glad you found us! Raw Foods Thursdays will be a great resource for you. When I used to eat raw on my own I would get bored with the same old recipes. Now I have so many to choose from every week. I love it! Glad to have you here!

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.
