Combining my love for vegan food and jiu jitsu might seem a bit far-fetched right ? If it weren’t for Rener Gracie, that might be true. Rener is a world-renown jiu jitsu instructor from a family that put Brazilian jiu jitsu on the map.
The family also has its own Gracie Diet, which isn’t vegan but there’s a big focus on healthy eating. As Rener is known for his insane energy levels, he often received the question where all this energy came from.
As a response he put together a youtube video in which he shows how to make the Renergy sandwich, a sandwich which combines almond butter, avocado, spinach, and kale munchies. Check out the video below to learn about my favorite sandwich. Careful though, there’s 2 more Renergy sandwiches on youtube that aren’t vegan.
And since there’s no point in keeping avocado’s unused in the fridge, we decided to make a lovely avocado-tomato salad that we found in ‘500 vega gerechten‘ published by Veltman Uitgevers (in dutch)
If you’re looking for the 2nd most awesome sandwich in the world, maybe you can try one with our vegan chicken salad. Or if you’re, like me, still addicted to cheese, try our Boursin and vegan cheese spread.
I know my energy levels are through the roof right now, what about yours ?
