So how does one eat like Tom Brady? What is the diet of a champion? A few months ago Brady’s chef Allen Campbell laid out what he makes for the Brady household, including his supermodel wife Gisele. via Boston.com:
So, 80 percent of what they eat is vegetables. [I buy] the freshest vegetables. If it’s not organic, I don’t use it. And whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, beans. The other 20 percent is lean meats: grass-fed organic steak, duck every now and then, and chicken. As for fish, I mostly cook wild salmon.
It’s very different than a traditional American diet. But if you just eat sugar and carbs — which a lot of people do — your body is so acidic, and that causes disease. Tom recently outed Frosted Flakes and Coca-Cola on WEEI. I love that he did that. Sugar is the death of people.
Brady takes that diet to heart, recently releasing The TB12 Nutrition Manual. It has 89 recipes, including a gnarly one for avocado ice cream. Even at $200 a pop the cookbooks sold out within a few minutes. \
If avocado ice cream is what it takes to be as superior of a human being as Tom Brady is, sign me up. Just as long as I can FreshDirect it and not move a damn finger in actually trying to make such a concoction.
