Novak Djokovic isn’t just ranked number one in the world for men’s singles tennis—he’s also a fan of clean eating. After he stopped eating meat last year, he said, “My diet hasn’t just changed my game, it’s changed my life—my wellbeing.”
Recently, the tennis star opened a vegan restaurant in Monte Carlo, where he lives full-time with his wife, Jelena. Eqvita serves up scrumptious “nature-centric” cuisine, like this raw lasagne:
The greener the better, right? And who said Lasagna has to be cooked? Just look at this fresh green example ala #Eqvita, packed with nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. Bon Appétit. #eqvita #raw #vegan #zucchini #lasagna #amazing #cashewcheese #driedtomatoes #rucola #plantbased #instagood #foodporn #repost from @hugo_nys

We’ll leave you with this inspiring quote, courtesy of Novak: “[T]he fuel … determines how I play, how I recover and how alert I am on the court. … I attribute a great deal of my professional success to my diet.”
We wish the plant-powered pro all the luck in the world at this year’s U.S. Open!
