Here’s How to Eat Like Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, According to Their Chef
Veggies with a side of veggies, but hold the tomato.
Personal chef Allen Campbell revealed what beautiful people Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady eat on their strict, plant-based diet to Boston.com. Campbell, who comes from a raw diet background, values organic ingredients and keeps away from GMOs.
“80 percent of what they eat is vegetables,” he says of Bundchen and Brady. “[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 … As for fish, I mostly cook wild salmon.”
He does not use white sugar, white flour, or MSG. “[Tom] doesn’t eat nightshades, because they’re not anti-inflammatory,” says Campbell. “So no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants. Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but maybe once a month.”
Other foodstuffs that he avoids are coffee, caffeine, fungus, and dairy.
Brady rarely eats fruits, barring the occasional banana in a smoothie, but his children enjoy homemade fruit rolls made from bananas, pineapple and spirulina, which is an algae. “It’s a super fruit. I dehydrate it,” says the chef. “I dehydrate a lot of things.”
