Raw Foods Thursdays: 12/5/13

Welcome back to Raw Foods Thursdays! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We missed last week’s event due to the holiday as well me losing my head over the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. So today I’ll be highlighting recipes from the week before Thanksgiving. I meant to highlight Thanksgiving-type recipes today, and I was definitely on target with the first two delicious recipes. But then I always seem to get distracted by chocolate. It’s a life-long struggle. Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Smoothie – 2 ways by Made to Glow


Raw Pumpkin Chai Tarts by Delicious Knowledge


Ridiculously Easy Chocolate Protein Bark by Janet of The Taste Space


Luscious Chocolate Cashew Cake by Kimmy of Rock My Vegan Socks


No-Bake Chocolate Bliss Balls by Laura of Laura’s Gluten-Free Pantry


This week I’m sharing my Raw Caramel Nut Frosted Fudge. Yes, chocolate too!


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?

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. 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. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
