Raw Foods Thursdays Guest Host: Thursday July 25, 2013

Hello and welcome to Raw Foods Thursdays! My lovely friend Heather from Gluten Free Cat just moved to NYC!  So exciting!! While she settles in her new environment, a few of her blogger friends (myself and three others) are hosting Raw Foods Thursdays for the month of July.  I am the final guest host. Last week our pal Tessa from Tessa the Domestic Diva hosted and you can check out the wonderful submissions HERE.   
What do you have to share this week?
Here’s how you can participate:
  • 1.  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!
  • 2.  Please link to the recipe, not to a blog’s home page, so we can all find your raw foods recipe.
  • 3.  You may link up a recipe that you’ve made in the past. Just make sure to share something different each time you participate.
  • 4.  Be sure to leave a comment letting us know who you are and what you’re sharing.
  • 5.  Feel free to use the Raw Foods Thursdays blog badge created by the lovely, talented Heather Peters!
 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.

    Oh how fun to see my Chocolate Cherry Milkshake highlighted! Thank you, Amber! :-) Honestly, in this recent heat cold beverages are saving the day. This week I'm sharing another one, my simple version of a Purple Cow. I love that this recipe is only five basic ingredients with nothing added for sweetener. ;-) Thanks so much for hosting, dear!

    Such wonderful summery picks, Amber! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such a gracious hostess! I've been so preoccupied that I didn't realize it was RFT until a minute ago! I'm sharing my Hydrating Banana Bread Smoothie. And I just realized I never touched the computer yesterday to share with AFW! Live will normalize soon...hopefully! :)

    Have a beautiful day!

    I am sorry my Pie-inspired Smoothies posted twice. The Internet was spinning around and taking forever to load, so it didn't show that it went through the first time, but I guess it did. Thank you for hosting!

  4. Hi Amber,
    Such a great idea for a round up! I'm sharing one of my favorite salads today - my Raw Beet, Carrot & Apple Salad with Ginger Lime Dressing. I'm not generally a beet lover, but I do love them in this salad. ;)

    Thank you for hosting!

  5. Hello!
    Raw Foods Thursday is a great idea! I have shared my favourite Avocado Chocolate Pudding recipe. This recipe is creamy and decadent. I love to freeze it in ice cube trays and eat it frozen. Reminds me of a fudgesicle!

  6. Hi Amber! Thanks for hosting another link-up this week. This is one of my favorites. :-) I'm adding my raw cookies to the yummy bunch! :-D

  7. So many yummy summer recipes! I love raw foods in general, but more so in summer. Nice to see you hosting this week, Amber! Have a great week. :)

    Thank you for hosting, Amber! I'm sharing my raw zucchini pasta, which I smothered in a lemon-basil-cashew alfredo sauce. Sooo yummy, and perfect for cooling off on a hot summer night!

  9. These all look amazing! I especially can't wait to try the pie-inspired smoothies, s'mores, and raw chocolate chip cookies. I'm going to have to work out more! ;-)

    Also, I shared a pineapple and jicama salad with fresh mint - light and refreshing for summer get-togethers!

    Hi Amber, I just found your blog from Ricki Heller's blog and I'm so happy to visit! Thanks for hosting raw foods thursdays! I'm sharing my Anti-Aging Pineapple Banana Green Smoothie. Have a great weekend!

    Thanks so much for featuring my Iced Blueberry Coconut Smoothie :-) I was away for the weekend, so I've only just seen it... hence my late reply, sorry!

    I continue to be amazed by your yummy healthy creations - the photos of your latest mint-chocolatey treats are sooo good! I wish I had more time to try out all your fabulous creations.
