Genie keeps spawning golden bugs, and a nice number of these drop health and energy potions. Combine this with the overheal / overenergy effect of taking a potion when your meter is full and you've got an easy way to get your hp and energy into the 100s with no risk.
I've been standing one square to the left or right of the bug spawning circle, and I keep bashing (1-2 hits) the bugs that spawn with my +2 sword. I've got over 100hp and 70 energy now, and because I'm too far down the screen the boss doesn't attack.
When low on food, just restart the game and you'll be able to go down to the corridor and pick up some roasted food before triggering the genie again
