Of all the different styles of eating, unprocessed is the one that makes the most sense to me. This book was much more educational than I expected. Kimble does chronicle the changes in her eating but she also explores how food is processed. She makes salt (actually she extracts it from sea water as her father tells her), she participates in butchering a sheep, and even makes her own chocolate! Very enjoyable and interesting book!
