Here’s what Tom Brady eats to stay in peak condition at an age at which most players have already retired

Olieprijs keldert fors… en dat begint zichtbaar te worden bij de benzineprijs en diesel

“[Brady] doesn’t eat nightshades, because they’re not anti-inflammatory. So no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants. Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but just maybe once a month. I’m very cautious about tomatoes. They cause inflammation.

“What else? No coffee. No caffeine. No fungus. No dairy.”

I, um, OK. (*pours out coffee, empties refrigerator*)

And how about a cheat day? What does Campbell cook for Brady and Bundchen when they just want to, you know, relax? Have some good, old-fashioned comfort food? Campbell said:

“I’ve just did this quinoa dish with wilted greens. I use kale or Swiss chard or beet greens. I add garlic, toasted in coconut oil. And then some toasted almonds, or this cashew sauce with lime curry, lemongrass, and a little bit of ginger. That’s just comfort food for them.”

Brady has said he wants to play football well into his 40s. With a diet this scrupulously healthy, he might just play longer than that, too.
