Her house was heated by a wood-burning stove. Her passion for natural foods developed after reading the book 100,000,000 Guinea Pigs.
Hunter was food editor of Consumers’ Research Bulletin magazine. She authored The Natural Foods Cookbook in 1961. This was one of the first works published on natural foods, a decade before the natural foods movement was popularized in the United States. Hunter warned against the consumption of artificial additives, processed foods and preservatives, excessive sugar and the dangers of pesticides. Hunter was one of the earliest opponents of pesticides. She sent some of her research to Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring.
In 1961, when The Natural Foods Cookbook was first published, Hunter attracted criticism from dietitians and nutritionists because she was not using processed foods. Others thought she was a “crank”. However, the book sold well and became a classic in the natural and organic foods movement. It was heralded as the “nation’s first healthful natural foods cookbook”. Frances Moore Lappé was influenced by the book.
