Green Foods for Energy: Chronic Fatigue and Exhaustion Don’t Have a Fighting Chance

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


By now you know how much I proclaim the magic of green foods in keeping you vibrant, energetic and strong.  You’ve probably heard me say that we should eat like the chimps.

My friend Alicia Ojeda of EZrawfoods101.com sent me the following very green recipe that I thought I’d share.  Alicia doesn’t mind.  She wants to share the message of green too.

Alicia is a gifted chef and instructor.  She was trained in living foods cuisine at Living Light Culinary Institute

I’m not sure chimps eat avocados, but they do eat their greens.


Great for getting extra greens in your guac!

* 2 ripe avocados,
* 2 green onions sliced thin
* 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed thru garlic press
* 1/2 small jalapeno chili, minced or 1/8 tsp cayenne
* 1 tsp kelp powder or dulse flakes
* 1 cup kale, spinach or broccoli, or peas  pulsed in food processor or  chopped fine with ¼ tsp salt
* ¼ bunch cilantro rough chopped
* 1/2 tsp Sunfire Salt
* 1/2 tsp ground cumin
* 1 tbsp lime or lemon juice

Place avocado flesh in a bowl and smash slightly with a fork or potato masher, stir in remaining ingredients.  Mix well. Adjust seasoning to taste (I like mine spicier!).  Serve with chips, your favorite salsa, on a bed of  greens, or to accompany your favorite Mexican meal.
