Welcome to Raw Food Thursdays!

Raw Foods Thursdays: 6/27/13

I’m hosting this weekly link-up party this week for Heather from Gluten-Free Cat, as she is having a very busy summer! Next week Raw Food Thursdays will be hosted by Linda of Gluten-Free Homemaker.

Last week there were 20 fantastic looking raw recipes linked-up. Check them out here! My favourites from last week were:

Favourite Dessert:

Raw Nut-Free Lemon Bars from Nom Yum Free


Favourite Salad:

Zucchini Summer Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing from In Johnna’s Kitchen


Favourite Breakfast Food:

Sugar Plu…ot & Raspberry Ginger Granola from Detached and Connected


Favourite “Cool Down” Treat:

Raw Nutrient Dense Key Lime Pie Creamsicles from The Tasty Alternative


Favourite Smoothie:

Watermelon, Strawberry and Basil Smoothie from Detached and Connected


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.

What is Raw Food?

  • 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.

This week I’m submitting my Peanut Butter and Banana Chocolate Bites
