How To Make The Renergy Breakfast Sandwich

by Rorion Gracie filed under How-To

People always ask me where all my “Renergy” comes from. Well, the answer is the Gracie Diet. Here’s the breakfast sandwich that I use to get started with a bang. Try it out and let me know what you think. Just be sure to follow the recipe exactly otherwise you won’t feel the full effect.

Essential Detail – Kale Munchies – get them at:

Keep it real.

      Have you tried it? If not, give it a shot. If you don’t care for the ingredients, then, you can take any of the ingredients listed in Group A and combine them to make your own sandwich! Give it a catchy name and share the info!

    Love this sandwich…

    Why sautee the spinach? doesn’t that burn off some of the nutrients?

    • http://Sundar%20Jm%20Brown Sundar Jm Brown

      No significant nutrients are lost by sauteeing. The warm spinach compliments the warm toast and makes the sandwich very comforting. A great “comfort food” to go to rather than hot french fries or processed sweets.

    Oh and p.s. to my post below. . . . meant to also say, Love your videos. Love you guys. Love your diet. Love what you stand for and thank you for all you do to post videos to teach us so thoughtfully and carefully.

    I NEVER see you guys wash your hands with soap before you start preparing food. Disgusting!!! Plus, have to tell you, the way you only rinse off your fruit is NOT safe. I am a microbiologist tech, you are not washing off any viral/bacterial microorganisms like you think you are doing. You need to use a drop of soap, Yes Soap, a drop, on the outside of the fruit, rinse, do this again and end rinsing with a strong stream of water.  Otherwise you’re bringing the organisms right into your food when you cut through that skin. At some point you will get sick.  As well, think about this. They don’t have toilets, toilet paper, soap or water out in the fields where some of this fruit may still be picked by hand. So when one of the workers has to go to the bathroom out there, there’s no porta-potty for him to use. What’s he gonna wipe with? What’s he gonna wash his/her hands with? It’s not happening. They go and right after they go back to picking fruit. As well, ever been to Whole Foods or any store and see some disgusting person sneeze without covering their nose/mouth. If they’re standing in the fruit aisle, or maybe they’re standing over the hot food buffet line, they’re disgusting nose/mouth spray can go as far as 15 ft onto the food you just picked up.  So washing your fruit with just water does not cut that bacteria the way you think you are doing! If a microbio tech doesn’t convince you, go frankly ask Martha Stewart herself about washing fruit/veges. She will tell you, use a drop of soap and wash each piece twice!

      HOLY germa-phobe!

      • http://Al%20Smith Al Smith

        If you ever saw what grows in a petri dish from simple things we touch and eat – you would rescind that statement.  I’m not a germa-phobe in the least, rather I’m educated about it, practical, safe. When people make those types of statements, they’re usually the ones that don’t wash their hands after they go to the bathroom, before they eat, cleaning the kitty litter, etc. Oh yum, I’d like to have dinner with them. Yuck, not! Maybe you like to dine with those types but I’ll steer clear of them by at least 50 ft. But feel free to ingest all the bacterial and viral microorganisms you want too, just off your hands from not washing regularly – but there’s no way I’m going there. If you ever had a clue about what you were putting in your mouth by not washing your hands, not washing fruit, whatever; or bringing into your home on your hands, you would be nauseous for weeks. So get educated, practice good hygiene and wash your hands often.

          This type of method leads to the resistant super strains we see these days.

    • http://Sundar%20Jm%20Brown Sundar Jm Brown

      Al, whenever fruit or vegetables are prepared in the Gracie Diet, they are first cleansed with a produce-specific cleansing agent, rinsed thoroughly, and stored. When brought back out to use, they are given a quick rinse again. Additionally, everything is peeled before being consumed. Hands are always washed prior to preparation. Just because we don’t see every small detail occurring in the video doesn’t mean that’s not happening.

    Are there any substitues for kale? I mean avacado yeah my favourite fruit but kale’s one thing i cant find mate.

    • http://Sundar%20Jm%20Brown Sundar Jm Brown

      Any leafy green vegetable can be used. Kale, however, is especially potent and nutrient-rich. It exists- look a little harder!

  • http://Sara%20Dooley Sara Dooley

    Sadly the Kale Munchies are now discontinued but I’m sure we could just dehydrate our own.  I would have had to anyway as I am alergic to agave.  Great video my son really enjoied the last bite!

  • http://Lopez Lopez

    gorgeous, mouthwatering, so tasty.. and im not talking about the sandwich

  • http://Maryella1 Maryella1

    you can make your own kale munchies. coat in olive oil – bake 300 for 25-30 min.

    • http://Lazodisibio Lazodisibio

      HA!  Good tip!  Thanks!

  • http://TheCreature TheCreature

    You can also just make Kale chips in the oven. There are a ton of recipes if you google oven kale chips.

  • http://Rob Rob

    seriously delicious sandwich. just made one…then had too make another!

  • http://Deathatoneselbow81 Deathatoneselbow81

    Can I just use regular kale and sautee it with the spinach?

    • http://Mino Mino

      using fresh kale or any leafy green for that matter is even better as kale munchies are seasoned with spices, thus making them a bad combination in the Gracie Diet. Rener read the ingredients AFTER he had posted the video, he said so himself. Also, try using the leafy greens without sautéing them as heat kills enzymes and nutrients.

    Question: I can not eat Almond Butter as I am allergic to nuts. What can I use as an alternative???

    • http://Mino Mino

      Try using homemade peanut butter as peanuts are actually legumes not nuts. If you are also allergic to peanuts, try toasting the bread on a pan or skillet with a slice of jack cheese so it melts, making it compatible with the rest of the sandwich.

  • http://Dannyreynolds Dannyreynolds

    I love the renergy sandwich! how can you tell when the avacados are just right for slicing?

    • http://Mino Mino

      Avocados are ripe when they get soft.

  • http://ChrisMaz ChrisMaz

    I don’t think I’ve ever be this excited to make a sandwich before!!

    • http://ChrisMaz ChrisMaz

      So excited I didn’t even finish typing the word “been”. HaHa.

  • http://ER ER

    It’s pretty easy to make nut butters using your Champion Juicer, so I’d recommend making either almond or peanut butter fresh, versus using jarred brands.

    ; )

    • http://Mino Mino

      You’re right. You can also get a creamier nut butter with food processor as seen here: .Just remember to omit the honey as it does not combine with nuts. The nut/coconut milk sauce can be easily modified to meet Gracie Diet requirements by omiting the cayenne pepper powder.
