Tom Brady ‘Prefers Not to Eat Fruits’ and Other Things We Learned from His Private Chef

Mushrooms and iodized salt are off the table in the Brady household. 

It’s not much of surprise that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, or his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, adhere to a strict diet administered by a private chef — but it is kind of surprising to learn that Brady, whose diet is 80 percent vegetables, refrains from a lot of produce.

For instance, Brady doesn’t eat any vegetables that aren’t anti-inflammatory, “so no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants,” his private chef, Allen Campbell, told Boston.com. Actually, Campbell says, “Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but just maybe once a month.”

Brady also “will eat bananas in a smoothie,” but otherwise “prefers not to eat fruits.” Coffee, caffeine, mushrooms, iodized salt, white sugar, white flour, and dairy are also all out of the picture. As for what does make the menu, Campbell says he “dehydrate[s] a lot of things,” and a bowl of quinoa and wilted greens is the closest the Bradys get to comfort food.
