GRACIE DIET: 
Grapes are one of the best fruit to help protect against cancer, eye problems, cardiovascular disease, and other health conditions.  It’s rich in fiber and potassium.
Regardless of how sweet the grapes are, in the Gracie Diet, grapes are considered an acid fruit and it can only be eaten by itself.
Frozen grapes are a great snack during summer time!
UNIFORMS: 
We are reinforcing the students to add their name onto their uniform.  It helps the other students to get to know each other.  As far as dress code goes, all students must have a clean Gi, and GB rash guard for both Gi and No-Gi classes.
