We often reach for "quick fixes" - like pain relievers - and forget how to set the stage for real healing. Total body healing begins with the food we eat. Devon Young, the founder of the holistic lifestyle blog Nitty Gritty Life, provides targeted recipes to strengthen the heart and blood vessels, promote good digestion, restore hormone balance and more.

Beet and Horseradish "Kraut" uses fermentation and nutrient-dense ingredients like beets to invigorate the immune system. Potato Curry eases digestion and clears skin with turmeric and lemongrass. Her recipe with roasted garlic, thyme, and bone broth creates a meal that nourishes and strengthens the cardiovascular system.

All of these recipes can be easily incorporated into your everyday life for sustainable health. Bolster your immune system, nourish your nerves after a stressful week, and awaken your senses with recipes that help your body do what it was supposed to do - only better.

This book will include 75 recipes and 75 photographs.
