There’s nothing deflated about the price of Tom Brady’s new cookbook, a playbook for healthy eating. At $200 for the binder full of Brady-approved recipes, the price tag seems a bit up there, don’t you think? But the high cost of the “TB12 Nutrition Manual” hasn’t scared away his loyal fans and in the week since it went on sale on Brady’s TB12 online store; it’s sold out. The pre-order period is currently closed and the site promises the big-bucks book will be available for sale again in early June, just in time for Father’s Day. But still, $200 for a book? Does it come with Tom and supermodel wife Gisele’s private chef?
During this off-season, Brady’s hyper-strict diet has gotten publicity after his and his wife’s personal chef, Allen Campbell, revealed their quirky eating habits. The Brady family is super-health conscious and steers clear of all kinds of sinful delicacies.

“I would love to encourage all my teammates to eat the best way they possibly can,” Brady said in a WEEI radio interview in October. “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.”

Brady and his Brazilian beauty wife clearly don’t gorge on deep-fried Twinkies and stuffed-crust pizzas.

But Brady also doesn’t eat nightshades because they’re not anti-inflammatory. That rules out tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and eggplant. Campbell only uses coconut oil to cook with.

The four-time Super Bowl champion also bans white sugar, flour and MSG from their no-nonsense diets. Also, 80% of the food they consume are vegetables, and they absolutely must be organic. The rest of their diet, according to a Boston.com interview with Campbell, consists of lean meats and fish. Regular old salt is replaced with pink Himalayan salt. “It’s very different than a traditional American diet,” Campbell said.
 

In an interview with GQ, Brady said it’s not a cookbook. Rather, it’s a nutrition manual. Whatever it’s called, we can all agree it’s expensive. But that’s apparently because, like Brady’s diet, it’s made of high-quality materials.

According to Brady’s site, the manual is “a limited-edition ‘living document’ containing information about our core TB12 nutritional philosophies and featuring a library of 89 seasonally inspired recipes that you can use to support your TB12-aligned nutrition plan.”

The binder is printed on thick 100 pound text paper and the covers are made from natural wood with a laser-etched logo and title. It’s also designed so the pages can be removed or added with the release of new recipes in the future, available free to those who buy the book.

The website also notes that “due to its unique content and binding, all sales of the TB12 Nutrition Manual are final sale (the manual can not be returned or exchanged).”

Well that might take the air out of your sails.
