Tom Brady’s $200 cookbook has sold out

The legions of Patriots fans who love their #HashtagTommy won’t be seeing any #hashbrowns, but they apparently can’t get enough of the other stuff Tom Brady’s selling out.

Via Evan Grossman of the New York Daily News, the $200-a-pop cookbook (pardon me, “nutrition manual”) Brady is hustling has sold out, though another printing is expected in June.

There’s nothing traditional about the recipes, as Brady has a very specific and strict diet, eliminating most meat, along with certain vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and eggplant. But his diet remains 80 percent vegetables, which are always organic.

“I would love to encourage all my teammates to eat the best way they possibly can,” Brady said on WEEI last fall. “Now, that’s not the way our food system in America is set up. It’s very different. They have a food pyramid and I disagree with that. I disagree with a lot of things that people tell you to do.”

Of course, it’s easy to poke fun at Brady for some of his unique food choices (the brown avocado ice cream isn’t the most appealing-looking thing in the world). But he and his wife Gisele Bundchen are super-rich celebrities and look great, so some degree of dietary silliness should probably be expected.

The amount of people willing to buy in, however, might be.

Maybe if they’re all thirsty after trying his delicious recipes, they can wash it down with some Russell Wilson-endorsed concussion water.

  1. Great player but sorry Tom, I need bacon. Well, no one NEEDS bacon, but all things in moderation.

    I don’t care how you eat, playing in the NFL at 50 will take more than avocado ice cream.

  2. If I could eat like Brady i’d weigh right where my doctors want me to.

    But there’s something about peanut m&m’s, chunky monkey ice cream, brownies, and blueberry pie that reveal my vulnerabilities.

  3. Genuinely curious why someone would avoid these vegetables, as stated in the article: “eliminating most meat, along with certain vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and eggplant.”

    So you’re never eating some of the best vegetables? Huh?

  4. .
    I’m not a big fan of asparagus burgers and broccoli shakes. However, if more Americans kept track of their food intake, even for a week, they would be horrified. We’ve grown addicted / accustomed to unhealthy and highly processed foods. In many part of the country that’s what’s readily available. I have 0 confidence in the USDA, its food pyramid. or anything else that flows like a river of crap out of Washington DC.

  5. Is the Russell Wilson-endorsed concussion water different from the Tom Brady-endorsed concussion water?

    Also, all food is organic. The presence of carbon is what makes a substance organic, not the manner it’s grown/raised.

    Signed, a chemistry nerd.

  6. Hey mortal fools, ditch that table salt and only use TB12’s recommended Pink Himalayan Salt! – which Brady, or Giselle, or rather whoever advises their diet, is too stuck up inside a pyramid with a magic crystal in each hand to read that it includes a number of radioactive substances like radium, uranium, and polonium, and also includes substances that act as poisons, like thallium. It’s other “healthy” trace minerals are gound in other common foods, but as it’s collected and ground by the hands of impoverished workers in the Lahore district, you can be sure it also includes a few goodies from their very un-hygienic hands.

    And what if everyone could afford it Tom? How long would this “precious” finite resource last and what would billions of orders do to the local ecosystem? Elitist, Preachy, Stupid, Dangerous, Damaging.

  7. $200 is a bit steep, but I support his message. Half the reason the league is happy to stick it to Tom is because he refuses to play the pizza/beer/insurance-selling dancing monkey caricature other megastars are happy to assume.

  8. “I disagree with a lot of things that people tell you to do.”

    Oh never mind…this is too easy. His legacy writes itself…

  9. Tom Brady could take a crap, wrap it in tinfoil, put a couple fish hooks on it and sell it to patriot fans as earrings.

  10. Why eliminate Tomatos? Is it because they are canned, and you want to avoid the BPA from the van liner? Then eat fresh tomatoes.

    >.There’s nothing traditional about the recipes, as Brady has a very specific and strict diet, eliminating most meat, along with certain vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and eggplant. But his diet remains 80 percent vegetables, which are always organic.

  11. I doubt he wrote one line of that book or invented one recipe. He just lent his name for some money. And suckers are paying $200 for it.

  12. What a waste of money. The average Joe doesn’t have chefs cooking for them and you would need to spend 6 hours a day in the kitchen to eat like this.

  13. Championship Burger

    Recipe:
    1) Take 12 NFL footballs.
    2) Inflate to acceptable levels.
    3) Take to officials to check.
    4) Have Patriots employee (preferably the fat one we call Deflator) lug bag of approved footballs to a hidden location and take air out of them.
    5) Cook up a win.

    Cleanup:
    1) Call Deflator and ask him to keep quiet (use signed memorabilia for persuasion, if necessary).
    2) If investigated, destroy phone!

  14. The book’s forward is from The Deflator, who explains how effective Tom’s plans have always been for removing excess weight.

  15. The irony is what has extended Brady’s career more so than what he eats is Roger Goddell’s rule changes. Yep, that same Goddell who is hated by Brady’s fanboys.

    Personally, I wouldn’t waste $200 to follow the recipes in this book and end up with Brady’s dad bod. Yes, we have all seen his love handles from those shirtless vacation photos.

    1) Brady’s Smart water carries no claims about concussion, just vague arguable drivel about being better than regular water much like other mineral or spring waters do.
    2) If you were a nerd you’d know that “organic” is short for “all organic” meaning free of artificial, man-made chemicals, genetics and pesticides.

  18. I hate the Patriots, with a passion. However considering the ever increasing obesity rates in America, and assuming this board is representative of America, it is not shocking to me that so many of you fatties are mocking what sounds like a mostly sensible dietary plan and calling it “dietary silliness”. Have fun being jolly and an ever increasing burden to the American medical system while driving up the costs for the rest of us. You should be proud.

  19. Part of Brady’s new contract with the Patriots includes a requirement for the team to purchase 500 thousand copies of the book to distribute to needy Ethiopians and Afghani’s

  20. Unless all the proceeds are being donated to charity or something this is on par with RG3 asking fans to give him wedding presents. Unnecessary, unequivocal, unmitigated greed.

    But of course Brady has a history of selling snake oil. Remember Smart Water? … and Stetson cologne? Plus all the cheating.

    Wasn’t talking about his “Smart water”, I was talking about when he endorsed NeuroSafe. His words: “NeuroSafe makes me feel comfortable that if I get a concussion I can recover faster and more fully. There is no other solution on the market today that can do what NeuroSafe does. It’s that extra level of protection that gives me comfort when I’m out on the field.”

    As for “all organic” you’re talking about a marketing term that has no standard definition. I’m talking about something that has a solid definition. Though I am curious to know how food is grown without genetics, given that genes are literally the blueprints that the plant/animal use.

  22. Nice photo up there, “To Serve Man.” Excellent Twilight Zone reference, one of the classic episodes. Good work.

  23. It’s nice that Brady seems to be concerned about America’s eating habits.
    If he was REALLY concerned, he would have made his “cookbook” 20 bucks, instead of 200 dollars.
    Only homer fan-boys are gonna shell out that kind of dough.
    I foresee that the ones who buy it will never make/eat any of the recipes in it.

  24. In answering the comment about nightshade vegetables causing inflammation in some people, there is little to no scientific evidence of this. In fact the only foods that can cause inflammation must have fat cells. Plants do not have fat cells, because they have a cell wall and no centrosomes like an animal cell has. The RNA in the mitochondria is different. Also as a person with inflammatory arthritis and fibromyalgia, I eat nightshade veggies all the time and they have no impact on my inflammation or c reactive proteins or anything. If one does not like tomatoes, one can juice them or make sauce out of them. They are healthy and contain flavanoids with prevent cancer cells.

    As far as Tom Brady, it is good that he eats healthy but he is still a still a cheat. I like the comment someone made about the deflated soufflé.

  25. Love to see the Brady GOAT comments because he has the most scandals attached to his name of any NFL qb in the history of the game. Forever tainted

    Does it come with a free pair of Uggs?

    Probably not. They probably don’t come with Super Bowl rings or a supermodel wife either

    So you’re never eating some of the best vegetables? Huh?
    ————————-

    Don’t know about the mushrooms, but tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant are nightshades, which are not good for some people.

    I’d never miss eggplant, because I don’t eat it, but I like pizza too much to do without the other three.

    Aside from the deflategate fraud, and the spygate fraud, name one scandal that he has “attached” to his name.

  30. Genuinely curious why someone would avoid these vegetables, as stated in the article: “eliminating most meat, along with certain vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and eggplant.”

    I know. Tomatoes are a superfood. But anti-migraine dieticians tell you to stay away from them.

  31. Pats say he’s the best but don’t pay him like he’s the best. Now he’s selling cook books.

  32. lol im a giants fan and i love all the hate for TB….he is the best ever and every bitter thing i read makes me realize how great he is….dude will throw 30 tds at age 44 book it…
