Primordial Ooze for Everyone!!

Anyone out there who knows me knows I am a big fan of healthy eating. While, in my practice I use many types of natural medicines to help support the efforts of people's bodies as they work to become healthier, I fully believe that these medicines will not be able to do it all. In other words, I feel that, for true healing to occur, you must have a foundation of healthy life practices in place to build upon.

Perhaps the most important part of this foundation (or at least tied with exercise) is eating a healthy diet. The type of dietary approach I recommend, more than anything else, focuses on what I call nutrient dense foods. Nutrient dense foods are foods that contain the most nutrients per calorie.

To help you on your way to adopting more nutrient dense foods into your daily diet, I thought I'd share with you a recipe for a wonderful morning (or any time of the day!) drink you can make which perfectly follows these ideas. I try to drink this for breakfast at least 5 days a week. For more of a cleansing program, you can also make twice the amount and consume 1/2 for breakfast and 1/2 for lunch, then a sensible dinner.

The name given to this drink by its creator (not me I'm sorry to say) is PRIMORDIAL OOZE.

Sounds gross. Tastes pretty good. Helps IMMENSELY!

Primordial Ooze Recipe

For one serving, blend the following items in a high powdered blender in this order:
  1. 4 oz filtered water
  2. 4 oz organic, unsweetened juice (ideal choices are pomegranate or unfiltered apple)
  3. 1 tsp or 1 bunch (depending on form it comes in) of seaweed (dulse, arame, etc)- let it soak for a couple minutes while you get out the other ingredients
  4. 4 tbsp hemps seeds
Blend the above together til milky, then continue adding:
  1. Large handful of dark, leafy greens (rotate kale, collard greens, spinach and dandelion greens)
  2. Small bunch of cilantro
  3. Small bunch of parsley
  4. 1 tsp turmeric powder
  5. 1/2 banana
  6. 1/2 avocado
  7. 1/2 to 1 cup frozen blueberries
  8. Liquid stevia can be added to taste
Beneficial additions if tolerated:
  1. 1-2 tbsp grass-fed liver powder
  2. 1 clove raw garlic
  3. 1-3 raw egg yolks (save the whites and cook on the side for more protein)

Blend and ENJOY!!

Wow, this sounds like medicine in a cup.. Ramman and I will have to try it sometime:) We love your posts and want to come meet you at your practice sometime! We have not posted on our Rip City Fitness blog for a while, but I am keeping up on my blog which is similar. We are in 'transition' with our fitness business:)

That sounds like a very intriguing recipe; I have almost everything on hand except for the hemp you recommend a certain type? Do they need to be soaked first, or anything?

I am totally going to try this!

Hi Laney,
Yes I want to meet you guys too! Sounds like we would have a lot in common. I'm actually very interested in hearing more about your transition and where your business is going. Maybe we could meet for tea sometime. Send me an email OK?

Dr. Chong,
Ramman and I have been drinking this in the morning for 3 days now and I can't believe what a HUGE difference it has made for me.. It instantly helped with my digestive distress as well as my sluggish feeling. Thank you for posting it!

That sounds intense, albeit a little time-consuming. I used to make a similar "green smoothie" nearly every day using only four ingredients. Just getting the raw dark greens in is enough to give a powerful boost.

1 fuji apple
1 banana
handful spinach
3 leaves swiss chard.

It comes out fairly sweet and smooth, and is easy to drink. More info at the link if you're interested. Thanks Dr. Chong for posting this.
