Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bünchen reveals everything she eats in a single day
Despite being the NFL's greatest player of all time, Tom Brady is one of those football players you either love or hate. If you're a casual fan or just big on the Patriots, his Super Bowl rings say everything that his stats can't, while the rest of the league can point to DeflateGate and a ton of other controversies that throw his reputation into doubt.
Plus, everyone's just annoyed that the damn Patriots keep on winning the Super Bowl. But no matter your feelings on Tom Brady, let's all agree on one thing: he's done pretty well for himself with his choice of partner.
Gisele Bündchen - yup, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen - has been married to the 41-year-old quarterback for nearly a decade, and they've had two kids together, talking regularly with another that Brady had from a previous relationship with Bridget Moynahan.
Taking care of two kids, you can imagine that it's a lot of work for Gisele to stay in shape for her modelling career, even if she's not part of the ultra-skinny "heroin chic" modelling scene of old. But Gisele Bündchen is much more than a MILF, my friends.
Not only is she one of the highest paid models around today, she's noted for pioneering a new way for models to move down a catwalk called the "horse walk", and she's dabbled in movies too. Not only that - Gisele Bündchen's written a book, titled Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.
Plus, how awesome is it for us at Food Envy that she's revealed a bit about the kind of things that she puts on her plate?
Without further ado, let's take a huge bite of what Gisele Bündchen eats on a regular basis. Not literally, though. You're going to have to ask for that yourself. Before we even get to breakfast, Gisele follows in the footsteps of Kourtney Kardashian by chugging a lukewarm glass of water with half a lemon squeezed into it.
This kickstarts her metabolism, while the 15 minutes she spent swilling coconut oil in her mouth beforehand ensures that her overall gut health stays on the straight and narrow. But enough of the prep - let's get to breakfast, shall we?
Tom Brady's diet is notoriously strict, but on the other side of the dinner table, Gisele enjoys avocado toast, eggs with avocado, or some cut-up fruit. Gluten-free bread with honey and almond butter is also a very good option. She washes this all down with a green smoothie, consisting of celery, cucumbers, apples, turmeric, ginger, and lemon juice.
This takes her very nicely to lunch, where it's a more basic soup or salad to take her through the afternoon. But alongside that, Gisele makes sure she's hydrated at all times.
"I drink water all day long, as well as lots of tea. My favorites are lemongrass, chamomile, and mint, ideally made with fresh chamomile and mint leaves from my own little garden. But it all depends on how I’m feeling. If I’m getting sick, for example, I’ll drink fennel tea, or prepare a honey-lemon-ginger concoction on the stove. Otherwise I always drink my tea straight, without honey or sugar."
For dinner, things tend to be a bit more varied, but Gisele explains in her book that she's all about letting her diet keep her healthy. "I believe strongly in the old saying 'Let food be thy medicine,' and I take nutrition seriously," she says in her book, and the results are there for all to see, don't you think?
