Hi ValleyGurl,
Here's a few questions that may be associated with your lethargy:
Are you a vegetarian, if you are, you may want to include more protein like beans, milk, etc.

Are you consuming enough B vitamins? A lack of B vitamins can also be related to having low energy.

Spiulina is a good protein source, and I'm sure it won't hurt, and it's made from a plant. I also read that many athletes use this and it's high in iron, some B vitamins and an EFA called GLA. I don't think it would hurt to give it a try.

Do you drink enough water?? Dehydration is the number 1 cause of lethargy. Also, do you consume lots of sugar or caffeine?? Both will give you a great initial boost but you'll soon come down from your high and feel exhausted.
Are you consuming lots of processed foods, alcohol etc ?? Toxins tax your body tremendously. While your cells are dealing with all the poisons in your body you will have little energy for anything else.
Are you eating too-large portions or not chewing your food well enough?? Digesting food is an energy consuming task for your body. If your intestine has to process gigantic mounds of food or break down not-well-chewed food it'll take all the energy in order to complete its tasks.

I used to be exhausted a lot but drinking more water, consuming less coffee and cutting carbs really helped.
