When people first hear of the October Unprocessed challenge, their first response is likely to be “But what about beer?! Wine?! Coffee?!” So I first tell them not to panic.

With October Unprocessed just a few weeks away, we need to spend a little time thinking about how to define “unprocessed.” I use The Kitchen Test, and it works well for me.

In fact, I encourage disagreement and discussion, since that’s the best way for us to learn together.
October Unprocessed has been a life-changing experience for me and for so many people who have decided to take the leap and give it a try. I’m super-excited to do it again this year, and hope you’ll join us!
