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.
