Green Living and Raw Foods Combat Chronic Fatigue and Adrenal Exhaustion

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


By now, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “You are what you eat”, haven’t you?  But have you really thought about what that means?

Each and every bit of food that enters your body will either be eliminated or become part of your cellular structure!  Since it takes about 7 years to replace every cell in your body, the twinkie you ate 5 years ago is likely to still be lurking somewhere in your cell walls, zapping your energy, challenging your immune system and altering your brain chemistry.

SCARY thought, isn’t it?

Boosting Your Immune System, Your Energy and Your Health

There are actions you can take to profoundly change your body, boost your immune system, jumpstart your energy and protect you from the ravages of degenerative disease and cancer.

It’s easier that you think to rearrange your body on a cellular level and restore you to pristine health.

There’s no rocket science involved…just some simple choices that you can make in the most important room in the house…your KITCHEN.

Are you interested in skyrocketing your energy so you can ENJOY your life to the fullest?  I can’t imagine abundant energy and joy not appealing to you!

What you eat turns into who you  are.  If you eat hydrogenated fat laden processed foods, your cell walls become brittle and unable to effectively transfer nutrients in and waste out.

If you eat foods that contain man made chemicals and toxic waste products, your liver will package them in fat to protect your vital organs and glands and you’ll gain weight.

If you eat chlorophyll, enzyme and oxygen rich green plant foods, you’ll become energetic, strong and well nourished.

Which outcome would you prefer?

There are two main reasons most people fail to eat enough green food.

1- They are not aware of the benefits of eating an abundance of green foods.

2- they have no idea how to make the greens taste delicious.

The 3 MOST  nutritious foods you can eat are:
1- fresh green sprouts, like sunflower greens, broccoli sprouts, daikon sprouts and dozens of others
2- blue green algae and microalgae (ie chlorella)
3- sea vegetables like kelp, dulse, nori, arame and dozens of others

Learn to make these foods, and include them in dishes you already eat.  Once you do, you’ll be able to experience culinary delight and nutritional abundance, all in one package.

I’ve included these foods in soups, smoothies, crackers, brownies, shakes, dressings, dips, salads, sandwiches, spreads and many more dishes.  My 25 years of experimentation with these foods has produced hundreds of delicious recipes.

How to Learn to Incorporate GREENS into your diet:

1- buy a recipe book and experiment
2- go online and look for ideas on forums and blogs
3- take a class from someone who has had lots of experience and knows how to make great tasting, nutrient dense meals.

Greens can change your life, save your life and make your life worth living.  Learn as much as you can about these valuable foods and make them a major part of your diet EVERY day.

A delicious example of powerful green food:
