What’s it like to eat like a professional football player and a supermodel? Apparently not very fun, according to an interview with Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s personal chef Allen Campbell.
“Eighty percent of what they eat is vegetables and whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, beans,” Campbell told Boston.com. “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.”
However, there are certain vegetables Brady, 38, won’t eat at all.
“[Tom] doesn’t eat nightshades, because they’re not anti-inflammatory,” explains Campbell. “So no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants. Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but just maybe once a month.”
Campbell does not cook anything involving white sugar, white flour, MSG, caffeine, fungus or dairy for the health-conscious couple.
“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,” Campbell told the website. “Sugar is the death of people.”
