Raw Foods Thursdays 4/17/14

6 Comments 16 April 2014

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.

What isn’t raw?

This will be the shortest Raw Foods Thursdays post ever. I have the flu and can barely see the screen through my watery eyes. Everything hurts. My mouse finger hurts. So no highlights this week. But please do link up and check out the raw creations our friends have dreamed up.

And if you haven’t had a chance to go back to last week’s edition, please do. There were some lovely entries.

Off to curl up in a ball.

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.

There’s something magical about chocolate and avocado. The creaminess of the avocado gives chocolate a place to shine, and what a great way to get some heart-healthy fats as well.

Last week I shared my very simple Chocolate Avocado Monkey Pudding, but a few of our Raw Foods Thursdays participants took this magical combination to a whole new level. If you’re thinking of serving something green for St. Patrick’s Day, you might want to consider a few of these!

Chocolate Avocado Banana Trifle by Laura of Petite Allergy Treats

The trifle uses these baked chocolate brownie cookies. Yum! But if you wanted to go 100% raw, try using my Raw Chocolate Crunch Cookies or Raw Chocolate Walnut Cookies for the cookie layers.

Time to link up and browse the raw goodness of the week!

Is it really Thursday already? Somehow I blinked, and here we are again! Do you ever have weeks like that? Last week I had a week off from school and had a wonderful time visiting my mom. We had great fun finding good vegan eats in her city and playing in her kitchen. After 6 months of working in my NYC kitchen, it sure was nice to enjoy some serious counter space. Kitchen envy is not a pretty thing.

On to Raw Foods Thursdays! Last week I fell in love with a few new twists on my old favorites. Let’s take a look at a few.

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.
