Raw Foods Thursdays: 4/24/14

Welcome back to Raw Foods Thursdays, the weekly blogging event that will fulfill all of your raw desires. Well, all of your raw food desires anyway. If you’re new to this event, come join in the fun! Browse through last week’s entries, this weeks highlights below, and come back later to check out the raw goodness that will be linked up in the next few days. We’re glad you’re here!

Last week we enjoyed an assortment of smoothies, goodies, and unique raw creations. Here are a few that I didn’t want you to miss!

Rawsome Carrot Wraps by Kimmy of Rock My Vegan Socks


Raw Vegan Chocolate Truffles by Karen of Karen Luvs Life


This week I’m sharing my first Raw Foods Potluck Adventure in NYC.


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?

    Hi Heather!

    Thanks so much for hosting! I’m sharing my Avocado pie which is almost raw. The crust is baked but an alternate raw crust could be used. Hope this fits here.

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.
