Raw Foods Thursday: 12/19/13

Hello, friends! I have a feeling that the last thing on your minds right now is raw foods! Traditional Christmas baking is most likely replacing your raw thoughts and intentions, even though raw desserts that I’ve found through Raw Foods Thursdays taste better than any baked good I can think of. Here are a few of my favorite examples:


Luscious Chocolate Cashew Cake by Kimmy of Rock My Vegan Socks


Creamy Dreamy Carrawt Cake by Allie of Detached & Connected


Goo Goo Clusters by Betty Rawker


Raw Berry Cream Brownies by Emma of Coconuts & Berries

Last week we had 3 lovely entries, so I will highlight all of them! Because of the upcoming holidays and low participation during those time, we will not be having an event next Thursday, December 26th. We will meet back here on January 2nd. I will keep this linky open until then. So if you get tired of the holiday fare and are ready to link up your raw foods, please do link them up here!

Here are last week’s rawlicious entries.

Chocolate Mint Smoothie by Marianne of Ragdoll Kitchen

Raw Peppermint Patties by Janet of The Taste Space

And there are FOUR delicious recipes that you must check out at Ves&Mork. This is one of my favorites:

Chocomole Mousse

Yum, right? Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and I’ll see you back here on January 2nd!

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.

What do you have to share this week?

  1. Hi Heather–Merry Christmas! I’ve linked up my Maple Caramel Candy Chews, which per your rules are “almost raw,” but can be submitted. I used maple syrup for maple syrup day, but honey or other sweeteners could be uses as you said.

    The recipes shown all look amazing! xo,

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.
