I am approaching my Vitality Guide, if you will, by organ/system. Even though I will ultimately lead with the liver I started playing with the heart because I already had a heart stamp. And who can resist the symbolism of leading with your heart, etc. This is a draft for the chapter head. What will follow will be some detailed information for each of the foods and recipes.

Eggplants? Carrots? Cauliflower?
