Tom Brady Made You Dinner

“Healthy” Does Not Even Begin to Describe His New Meal Subscription Service

By Sam Eichner ·
Things Tom Brady can currently do that you probably aren’t doing:

1. Win numerous Super Bowls.

2. Be married to a Bündchen.

3. Continue to (probably) support our current president.

Things Tom Brady can do that you simply can do:

1. Eat a famously strict diet of 80% vegetables and whole grains, and 20% fish and lean meats.


Introducing TB12 Performance Meals, a weekly meal subscription service by Purple Carrot, in partnership with the greatest quarterback of all time (are we saying that now? We’re saying that now) to reflect the future Hall of Famer’s very particular eating habits. It’s available for preorder now, and the first boxes ship out on April 3.

Each week, you’ll receive a set of easy-to-prepare, plant-based meals, containing no gluten, hardly any refined sugars and tons of protein. Which sounds not-great, until you consider that all of these Brady-approved recipes were created with your peak physical performance in mind. Then it actually sounds sort of thoughtful.

So maybe you try it out for a few weeks.

Eat things like coconut ramen broth with charred broccoli for lunch...

Make white lentil risotto with roasted winter veggies for dinner...

Enjoy crispy turnip cakes with quinoa tabbouleh whenever...

Or, well, maybe you don’t try it out at all.

Being a Brady isn’t for everyone.
