This book is a must-have for the person who wants to not only eat well, but enjoy eating well, too."

"Half confessional memoir, half delectable recipes, Unprocessed is a 100 percent inspirational, educational, and gastronomical fodder from Abbie Jaye, aka Chef AJ. A junk-food vegetarian since forever, AJ turned to a whole-foods diet to cure her ailments, and now preaches to anyone and everyone through her culinary classes and laugh-a-minute lectures. The recipes are all sugar-, salt-, and oil-free, and all delicious. How can you not like a book that starts with desserts?"
