I'm a Certified Associate Chef and Instructor from the Living Light Culinary Institute in Fort Bragg, CA as well as a Certified Benefits of Raw Food Nutrition Educator. I've been passionate about raw foods and nutrition for the past four years. This came as a result of health issues that made me take a reassessment of my diet and lifestyle. As a model, actress and musician I have to credit raw foods for helping me reach an incredible state of health as well as helping me keep my weight down, energy up and my skin clear. In addition to teaching raw food classes, I am currently acting and modeling in Los Angeles and New York City and recording with my band the Scouts of St. Sebastian. My book “Going Raw: Everything You Need To Start Your Own Raw Food Diet & Lifestyle Revolution At Home” is available through Amazon and at most major bookstores throughout the US, Canada and UK. My book contains 100 recipes in full color with easy, step by step instructions. I even included a DVD to show you some basic raw food skills to get you up and running in no time.

Raw foods are foods that have been unheated, unprocessed and unrefined thereby preserving their nutritional content and allowing our bodies to be fully nourished. Cooking food destroys about 70-90% of the nutrients. The standard American diet is so high in cooked and processed foods that it is no wonder we suffer so many degenerative diseases. Arthritis, heart disease, osteoporosis, depression and type 2 diabetes are all caused by poor nutrition and can often be reversed by adopting a raw food diet. Though I go by Raw Judita, what I really mean is Healthy Judita, but that wasn't always the case. I learned the hard way that what we eat affects our body, mind and spirit. I suffered from depression, bad moods, bad skin and arthritis just to name a few. I found that eating whole foods in their natural state allowed my body to detoxify and heal. I have clarity and creativity like I've never had before. The major raw food groups include fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, nuts, seeds, sea vegetables and sprouted grains. Some raw foodists eat raw dairy, eggs, sushi and raw meat. I find the energy I get from a fresh, raw, plant-based diet is so intoxicating, I literally dance when I eat. Try it for 30 days and you'll be a believer as well. Remember, you are what you eat, so eat well and be well!
