Guacamole burritos wrapped in nori sheets
All ingredients preferably are organic.
Chopped ripe tomatoes
Mix all the above together, then add:

All ingredients except possibly the young coconut preferably are organic.
Take one young coconut – cut with a cleaver, drain the water and place in blender, then scoop out coconut flesh and add to the coconut water in the blender. Here is a good link with further instructions about opening a young coconut.
Add either ½ tsp Turmeric powder, a good chunk of fresh turmeric root, two of The Synergy Company’s SuperPure Turmeric capsules or two of Medi Herb’s Turmeric Forte tablets.
Add one cup of fresh or frozen blueberries.

Add two to three cups several different kinds of leafy greens, such as kale, Swiss chard, romaine lettuce, watercress, collard greens, cilantro, spinach, or arugula.
Blend until you can drink it. Will keep in the refrigerator for several hours, but is best consumed right after blending.
