Now you can eat like a Super Bowl champion with Tom Brady’s delivery performance meals.
The New England Patriots quarterback, in partnership with Purple Carrot, is offering a sneak peak into his diet with TB12 Performance Meals. Purple Carrot is a plant-based meal subscription service, sending ingredients to create healthy, portioned meals on a weekly basis. As an extension of Brady’s existing fitness lifestyle brand, his meals follow the TB12 philosophy, according to the website.
The TB12 method is centered around injury recovery and performance longevity, the website says. A form of pre-hab, as Brady calls it, the program offers nutrition, hydration, gear and exercise to “lower injury rates, speed injury recovery, and help you stay at your best.”
So for $78 a week you can reap the nutritional benefits of the TB12 philosophy. This will get you three meals per week with two servings per meal, but the food won’t come ready to go with just few minutes in the microwave.
In the box will be fresh, portioned ingredients with step-by step directions for meals like cauliflower steaks with sweet pepper pesto and smashed potatoes, cannellini bean burger with tzatziki and carrot Fries or crispy tofu with pumpkin seed mole, Spanish rice and chayote squash. Aligning with Brady’s diet, all meals are high in protein, plant-based, gluten-free, contain limited refined sugars and soy, and are free of highly processed ingredients.
The meals take an average about 40 minutes to make, making it an activity you can do with the whole family. Brady posted this series of photos to Instagram cooking TB12’s beluga lentil tacos with his daughter.
Brady says on the site, the meals aren’t just for athletes, but for active individuals who want to stay at their peak. If you are not fully ready to commit to the plant-based lifestyle, start small with TB12’s protein bars, snacks and electrolytes.
