Tom & Gisele’s Food Choices Are The Definition Of High Maintenance

Doing the #TakeOutTakeout Challenge would be no problem if you had a personal chef. And if you’re Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, you have a pretty awesome personal chef. Allen Campbell does all of their grocery shopping, prepping, and cooking. He even travels with them. From an article that just dropped on, we can gather a bunch of the golden couple’s interesting food habits. This article also made me realize that Tom and Gisele just might be the dinner guests from hell.
For example:
- They don’t eat flour, sugar, dairy, or fungi.
- They eat 80% plant-based diets. (A change from what she used to eat, according to Vanity Fair.)
- They never cook with olive oil — only coconut oil.
- They only consume salt that’s been harvested from the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan.
- Tom doesn't eat nightshades ("Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but just maybe once a month.").
And, I couldn’t even serve them coffee at the end of the meal because they are both caffeine free. Why?! On the plus side, Tom is just like me; he doesn’t like fruit! So, we could bond over that while drinking — probably mandatorily purified and pH-balanced water. But at least I could please their kids and serve them some yummy spaghetti, right? Nope. These kids eat sushi for lunch, quinoa bowls in a “cashew sauce with lime curry, lemongrass, and a little bit of ginger” for dinner, and enjoy their own personal-chef-made fruit roll-up-type snacks.
Sigh. I guess when I am able to afford my own personal chef, I’ll indulge every single food wish my little heart desires, too. And it will most certainly include nightshades.
