It is DAY 12 of “Raw Food Recipes with Excalibur” and the gorgeous Raw Judita joins our Dehydrator Giveaway Celebration. This stunning red-haired beauty has brought a plate of her delicious raw vegan orange and cranberry scones to the party, and you do not want to miss these delectable treats!
Judita says, “Orange cranberry is one of my absolute favourite flavour combinations and unbelievably delicious in this moist and chewy oatmeal based recipe. I enjoy these for breakfast as well as for dessert, paired with a warm cup of herbal tea.” I say, “These scones are scrumptious, and take them any way you can get them! YUMMO!”
Just a note about the oats: oats have long been known for being an excellent source of soluble fiber which is great for the digestion, balancing blood sugar and for lowering cholesterol. They are also high in protein; rich in immune boosting minerals like selenium and zinc; and a great source of bone-building calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Commercial oats can contain small amount of gluten due to cross contamination. For those of you with a gluten sensitivity, be sure to purchase gluten free oats, or order certified gluten free oat groats from glutenfreeoats.com
These scones are just one of the many RAWMAZING recipes “Raw Judita” has in her repertoire. Raw Judita likes to think of herself as “Healthy Judita.” After suffering from depression, bad moods, bad skin, arthritis, and chronic symptoms, Judiita regained her health and vitality with a raw plant-based diet, and enjoyed a clarity and creativity she had not previously experienced.
Judita then went on to become a Certified Holistic Health Counselor from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and a Raw Food Chef and Nutrition Educator from the Living Light Culinary Institute. She now gives lectures and coaches clients all around the country to inspire other people to become healthier, more energetic, radiant, and vibrant with the power of live whole foods.
Judita also teaches customized nutritional healing classes for private groups at spas and medical centres, corporate locations, birthdays, bachelorette parties, children’s services, and other special events. She is also available for personal chef services. You can contact her through her website.
Judita, along with Penni Shelton from Raw Food Rehab and Day 7 of this event, was a proud Wellness Warrior for Cleanse America, supporting people from all over the world in an amazing 10 day raw food group transformational program.
Judita’s first book, GOING RAW: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO START YOUR OWN RAW FOOD DIET & LIFESTYLE REVOLUTION AT HOME is a fantastic introduction to raw vegan foods. It contains 100 recipes with full colour photos with easy, step-by-step instructions. If that isn’t enough to wet your appetite, there is a fantastic DVD included, where Judita shows you some basic raw food skills to get you started with the recipes. GOING RAW is available through Amazon, and at most major bookstores throughout the US, Canada and UK.
Judita has almost finished her second book, RAW & SIMPLE, where she features 100 fresh new recipes, as well as the most up-to-date nutritional information on eating raw. This fabulous book will be released in March 2013. If that’s not enough, Judita is also developing a raw food TV show. So, be on the lookout for that!
Before Judita became passionate about holistic health, she was an actress, model, voice over artist, and singer/songwriter. She played and toured for seven years with her band, The Halo Friendlies, and has been working on new material for her current band, The Scouts of Saint Sebastian. Those of you gamers might recognize Judita as the voice of Judy Nails from the Guitar Hero video game series.
Yes, all this begs the question, is there anything this lovely lady can’t do?
Judita, thankyou for participating in this event. You are AMAZING…
