Raw Foods Thursdays: 3/6/14

Welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! Can you smell Spring yet? Turning the calendar from February to March gives me hope despite the fact that brownish grey snowbanks still line every street in New York. They are not too long for this world!

Thanks for your submissions to last week’s Raw Foods Thursdays. I hope you picked up a few new recipes to try. Here are a few of my favorites.

Favorite Salad

Fennel, Celeriac, Parsley and Red Onion Salad by The Omnivore and the Vegetarian


Favorite Smoothie

Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Smoothie by Rock My Vegan Socks


Favorite Snack

Raw Protein and Fiber Nut Bars by The Gluten-Free Treadmill


Favorite Dessert

Raw Cinnamon Roll Bars by Oatmeal With a Fork


This week I’m sharing my Chocolate Avocado Monkey Pudding.


What have you been working on?

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.

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.
