Welcome to Raw Foods Thursday! Do NOT be intimidated by this post. I am about to highlight some incredible raw entries from last week that blew my mind. But remember, not all raw recipes are gorgeous. Not all raw recipes are long and involved. Not all raw recipes require fancy ingredients. In fact, if you have a knife, cutting board, and a bowl, you can make some delicious raw meals.
But last week sweets must have been in the air. If you haven’t had a chance to look at last week’s submissions please do so before you read any further. We had cheesecake, carrot cake, truffles, pie, smoothies, brownies, ice cream, cookies, tarts… are you getting the picture? It was an epic Raw Foods Thursday! Thank you so much for participating.
So how in the world does one choose highlights?
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And I’m thankful that Karen of Karen Luv’s Life created something special for the occasion.
So I decided to highlight all things pink! (Pressure off ME!)
Now seriously go check out the other amazing posts too!
This week I’m sharing a dessert. I’ve shared it before, but it’s almost pink so I had to include it!
Now what raw fun did you have 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!
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.
