Acai: Everybody’s Favourite Thing About Training Jiu-Jitsu in Rio

Rio has a lot to offer: the amazing training, the beaches, the lifestyle… But 99.9999% of people agree, acai is one of the very best things about a BJJ training vacation to Rio de Janeiro.

Why do people love it so much? Because acai is not just a great tasting snack. It’s a light meal that can be enjoyed as a between-meal filler, a pre-training boost, or even a dessert. It’s great for an energy boost between hard training sessions. When you’re running from the gym to the beach and back. it’s a good way of getting those all-important calories before you hit the mat for some world-class training.

Recently, everyone’s been going crazy about the health benefits of acai. It’s true that it is a superfood, high in antioxidants, iron, calcium and more. It is a very calorie-dense, meaning a small cup or bowl can leave you feeling full for a long time.

Everyone finds a place in town that offers the “best’ acai. Exactly where to get the best is a hotly debated topic! Some places make the acai very sweet, other places make it thick, some places offer a huge range of accompaniments like granola, banana, strawberry, and many other toppings.

Some of the favourite places people like to get acai are the world-famous Bibi Sucos, but sometimes the best places are unnamed juice stands located on street corners.
