The Brady family diet
Gisele BŁndchen and Tom Brady's family diet rules we can all take a cue from
If you've ever pondered how Gisele and Tom still cut amazing bods after having kids and getting on with age, the secret is in their strictly controlled diet. Allen Campbell, Tom Brady's private chef, recently told Boston.com about the family's diet rules. He believes that sugar equals death, and gluten-free everything is key. Regular household faves include lentil buckwheat footballs, vegetable maki sushi with brown rice, raw chocolate chip cookies and quinoa bowls with wilted greens.
We've rounded up the rules here. Anyone with kids could take a huge cue, family meals don't always have to consist of greasy nasi lemak or large mountains of briyani rice.
1. Go veg: 80 percent of what they eat is vegetables. Allen buys the freshest vegetables – if it’s not organic, he doesn’t use it.
2. Make it lean: 20 percent of what they eat is lean meats: grass-fed organic steak, duck and chicken. For fish, Allen normally cooks wild salmon.
3. Carbs are out: complex carbs are a strict no-no.
4. Don'ts: white flour, white sugar, MSG, coffee, dairy, fungus, nightshade veg (tomatoes (that cause inflammation), peppers, mushrooms or eggplants)
5. Do's: whole grains like brown rice, quinoa and millet, coconut oil, veg (including avocado, carrot, cucumber, fruits (banana, pineapple, s pirulina), granola.
