Tom Brady reveals his favorite recipe from his $200 'cookbook'

Tom Brady probably won't be pursuing a career as a chef anytime soon, but maybe he should. His cookbook has been a hot-seller.

Forget Rachael Ray or Gordon Ramsey. If you want the best recipes in your kitchen, you need to get your hands on a copy of Brady's cookbook. Of course, you can't actually do that, because the cookbook is sold out on Brady's website.

If you do get your hands on a copy, Brady knows what recipe you should make first. During an interview with GQ this week, the Patriots quarterback revealed which one of the 89 recipes is his favorite.

Before the big reveal though, Brady would like to make something clear about his book of recipes.

"It's not a cookbook," Brady told GQ. "It's a nutrition manual."

Got it.

So what does Brady's cookbook/nutrition manual consist of?

"Well, there's just a lot of substitutes for maybe some traditional foods," Brady said. "So there's some pastas. A lot of desserts that, when you look in there you think, 'Well, it's not a chocolate sundae.' And nothing is going to be like a chocolate sundae at the end of the day, because chocolate sundaes are chocolate sundaes. But are there things that you can eat that you can enjoy that can curb what you're looking for, that can be a lot healthier for you, that can bring down the inflammation in your body so that you're not hurting and you're going out there and doing the things that you wanted to do?"

For the most part, the recipes in Brady's nutrition manual attempt to avoid the use of sugar, white flour, olive oil, iodized salt, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, eggplants, all caffeine and dairy products.

Even without those ingredients, Brady and his trainer managed to come up with 89 recipes.

So which one is Brady's favorite?

"I mean, I love ice cream, so I think avocado ice cream is pretty good," Brady said.

The good news for us is that Brady shared the ingredient for his ice cream on Facebook.

The bad news is that you can't read the ingredient list, so you're probably going to have to use Google and steal someone else's recipe.
