Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! We had an incredible turn out last week with 18 deliciously raw entries. I haven’t had a chance to share them all on Facebook and Pinterest yet, but I will share them along with this week’s entries. I’ve had a crazy week at school and have been lesson planning like a mad woman. My leisurely days in the city are quickly coming to an end as I prepare to take over a classroom for a very pregnant teacher. Isn’t that exciting?
On to the highlights! Over half of last week’s submissions were desserts. So, if you’re hankering for a plant-based treat, you must spend some time browsing. You’ll find these and many more.
Favorite Raw Breakfast Treat
Favorite Raw Cookie
Favorite Raw Tart
Favorite Raw Cake
And here is a non-dessert favorite that would be great for an appetizer.
I have absolutely nothing to share this week, so I’ll be living vicariously through you!
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.
