Happy Thursday! I hope that you’ve had a great week and that you’ve been able to enjoy a few raw breakfasts, snacks, sides, or even entire meals. Warm meals certainly feel good on cold days like today, but you can enjoy raw foods in the winter too! Here are some examples from last week’s submissions.
Don’t tell me that you’re ever too cold for cake.
Or a creamy pudding.
And even raw pizza is tummy warming when it’s packed with these flavors.
If the warmth of gingerbread doesn’t put you in a cozy Christmasy mood, then what will?
The warmest, toastiest drinks can even be made raw. I love this drink cold and at room temperature, or you can even go the non-raw route and heat it up. (You rebel.) Delicious every which way.
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.
