Is Tom Brady the new Gwyneth? Haters may have initially rolled their eyes at his super-restrictive, 80-percent plant-based diet, but it looks like the tide has changed.
Since his personal chef spilled the secrets on how he and wife Gisele Bundchen eat earlier this year, the superstar NFL player came out with a cookbook (er, ahem, nutrition manual), so people can follow in his footsteps (for a mere $200), and now he’s selling vegan snack packs, 12 for $50. And people can’t get their hands on the fruit- and nut-heavy combos fast enough.
The reception to Brady’s healthy snack pack launch has been snarky (cue all the “You’d be ‘nuts’ to buy this!” headlines), but the snacks themselves are legit. Here’s a sampling of the snack pack flavors, all certified organic and raw: Cacao Goji Energy Squares (so you can get your chocolate fix without the sugar, coupled with a superfood), Superfood Energy Squares (plant-based, of course, so they are easy to digest), and Blueberry Crunch (to get your fill of antioxidants). And an added plus: the packaging is biodegradable.
Just like the Goop founder, Brady’s sure to be poked fun at for his expensive, health-minded habits, but he’s taking it all in stride. And considering that some outlets are reporting his snacks are already sold out, he’s the one getting the last laugh.
Even with their restricted diet, Brady and Bundchen still eat dessert. And they’re not the only ones who are a little obsessive when it comes to wellness habits. Check out the craziest things celebs to do stay healthy while traveling.
