Ever wonder what it would be like to live with Tom Brady? It wouldn’t be terribly satisfying, so it seems.

The athlete’s personal chef Allen Campbell, served up some choice details about what the New England Patriots quarterback will and will not eat in an interview with

Campbell says he mostly cooks vegetarian meals for the football player, his wife, longtime fashion model Gisele Bundchen, and their children. “[I buy] the freshest vegetables. If it’s not organic, I don’t use it,” he said. When meat is involved in a meal, Campbell will make them “grass-fed organic steak,” duck, and chicken — wild salmon if fish is on the menu — but certain ingredients are completely off-limits:

No white sugar. No white flour. No MSG. I’ll use raw olive oil, but I never cook with olive oil. I only cook with coconut oil… I use Himalayan pink salt as the sodium. I never use iodized salt.

[Tom] doesn’t eat nightshades, because they’re not anti-inflammatory. So no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants…

What else? No coffee. No caffeine. No fungus. No dairy.

If that doesn’t deflate your idea of a tasty diet, it’s unclear what will.
