Raw Foods Thursdays 4/17/14

Happy Raw Foods Thursday! And this Thursday is sure does feel good to be alive! Thanks for participating last week despite my fight with the flu. That was one nasty bug that I’m happy to be done with. There wasn’t much raw foods creating or eating around here, unless you count raw cereal. But I sure did enjoy looking at your entries!

Last week we had a lot of incredible raw desserts. Here are a few highlights.

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?

  2. I’m so glad that you have recovered, Heather! Those are some amazing highlights from last week and I’m off to check them out as soon as I’m done with this comment. This week I’ve linked up my Frozen Orange Kiss desserts which would be a fabulous ending to an Easter meal. :-)

  4. How I missed Raw Foods Thursdays!

    So much so that I made a smoothie just to be able to participate 😉

    I’m eating too much cooked food Heather. What’s your go to smoothie or entry level raw foods dish you’d recommend me if you hadn’t been eating raw foods for a while?

    I’m sharing my Pineapple Spinach & Coconut Smoothie this week. Thanks for hosting :)

  5. Hi,

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.
