Looking good comes at a price.
Supermodel Gisele (35) and NFL star Tom Brady (38) might be the most naturally beautiful people in the world, but maintaining those chiselled abs doesn't come cheap.
The power couple's chef Allen Campbell told Boston.com opened up about their day to day diets, including a list of "off limits" food, which is longer than the food they're allowed to eat.
White sugar, white flour, MSG, coffee, caffeine, fungus, olive oil, iodized salt. Nightshade vegetables are also a big no-no" because they’re not anti-inflammatory."
"So no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants. Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but just maybe once a month. I’m very cautious about tomatoes. They cause inflammation."
The Boston-based live in chef believes in the health importance of a plant-based diet, a philosophy his clients, who have two children Benjamin (five) and Vivian Lake (three), share.
"80 percent of what they eat is vegetables. [I buy] the freshest vegetables. If it’s not organic, I don’t use it,” he explained.
“And whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, beans. The other 20 percent is lean meats: grass-fed organic steak, duck every now and then, and chicken. As for fish, I mostly cook wild salmon.”
As for what's considered "comfort food" in the Brady-Bundchen household?
"A quinoa dish with wilted greens and garlic toasted in coconut oil with some toasted almonds, or a cashew sauce with lime curry, lemongrass, and a little bit of ginger."
"For snacks, I make fruit rolls from bananas, pineapple, and spirulina. Spirulina is an algae. It’s a super fruit. I dehydrate it. I dehydrate a lot of things. I have three dehydrators in their kitchen. I also make raw granola and raw chocolate chip cookies," he added.
