Raw Foods Thursdays: 1/16/14

Welcome back to Raw Foods Thursdays!

Last week I was impressed with the creativity in the recipes submitted. I loved reading your recipes and seeing how creatively you showcased a raw fruit or vegetable in a cookie, a pie, a smoothie, a salad… Take a look at the fun we had last week.

Something fun with apples and bananas

I’m on Day 14 of my New Year’s Juicing Challenge, so right now all of my fun is with juices. I’m sharing two!

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 are you sharing?

    Lots of deliciousness! So pleased you’re still going strong with the juicing. You’ve inspired me to do a juice cleanse next week- just 3 days but it’s enough for me :)

    What a fantastic idea! I’ve added a zucchini pasta recipe to this blog hop, and have another planned for next week.

    I do a monthly vegetarian challenge, and this month the theme is raw – I’d be thrilled if any of you would like to participate in it over on my blog.

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.
