“You gotta eat with a chip on your shoulder.” We assume that must be the first sentence in Tom Brady’s new “nutrition manual” selling on his TB12 website. The site, which launched in January, is Brady’s way of sharing the secrets of his long and successful athletic career with the public (and his way of making some extra money on top of that new contract with a potential 60 million dollars.) In addition to selling workout gear and various nutritional supplements, the TB12 store added the cookbook, which, according to the listing is “a living document containing and featuring a library of 89 seasonally-inpsired recipes that you can use to support your TB12-aligned nutrition plan.” The wood-bound nutrition manual includes recipes for items like healthy burritos, gnocchi and what must be the former 199th pick in the 2000 NFL draft’s favorite food—avocado ice cream. And, perhaps most noteworthy of all, the information contained in the book can be yours for the low, low price of 200 dollars. Now, if a 200 dollar cookbook seems pricey to you, we get it, but it’s not like this is a cookbook from any old chef—these are recipes from a Super Bowl MVP. Or at least they’re recipes eaten by a Super Bowl MVP.
The bad news for hungry Patriots fans is that the initial run of books is already sold out, so they will have to wait a little longer for their books. But the TB12 Store promises than any orders placed by May 7th will ship in early June. Until then they'll just have to drink Drew Bledsoe’s wine and pretend they're totally satisfied.
