Raw Foods Thursdays: 1/2/14

Happy New Year! After a season of feasting and celebrating, I’m ready to get back to plant-based foods. Are you? And I’d love to see what raw foods creations you’ve come up with in the past two weeks. But first, let’s take a look at a few fun, round, raw treats from the last Raw Foods Thursday of 2013.

The Best Chocolate Truffles by Janet of The Taste Space

Maple Caramel Candy Chews by Shirley of Gluten-Free Easily

Chocolate Truffle Snowballs by Kimmy of Rock My Vegan Socks

Hemp Coconut Cacao Truffles and Coconut Cacao Truffles by Quick’n’Healthy

What great inspiration to start the new year!

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. Look at all those yummy truffles! Honored to have my Maple Caramel Candy Chews included, Heather. They really are yummy and so versatile. You can easily make one for everyone with their favorites coatings. :-)

    Today I’ve linked up my very first raw pie from a LONG time ago. I thought I’d shared it before, but was happy to see I had not. It’s a great little pie!

    Happy New Year, dear!

    Happy New Year, Heather!

    I think you’ll really like the recipe I am sharing this week! It’s a simple recipe for raw freezer fudge (that actually does really well at room temperature for a while). I also share my goals for 2014.

    Here’s to an amazing year.


  3. Thanks for the shout-out!! Love all the truffles!!
    Btw, is the new linky up yet, Heather? Or is my browser acting up?

    I’m late to the party, as usual! Those truffles and candies look so scrummy. I’m sharing my ACD-friendly lemon coconut fudge bites this week.

  5. Happy New Year Heather!
    Thank you so much for highlighting my recipe =)
    Yay for Raw Food Thursdays!

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.
