No dairy. No caffeine. No white sugar or white flour. No olive oil and no iodized salt.

These are just some of the dietary restrictions that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen adhere to, according to the power couple's personal chef, Allen Campbell.

In an interview with Boston.com, Campbell revealed what he serves to the Brady-Bündchen family and the ingredients he keeps off their plates.

"If it’s not organic, I don’t use it," Campbell said.

Eighty-percent of what Brady, Bündchen and their children eat is vegetables and whole grains, and the other 20 percent is lean meats, he explained.

And you won't find anything with added sugar in their kitchen, either, Campbell said. In fact, Brady himself, in an interview with WEEI 93.7 FM, condemned sugary cereals and drinks, specifically Frosted Flakes and Coca-Cola, calling the latter "poison for kids."

Instead, his kids eat fruit, Campbell said, but Brady on the other hand, even is selective about the fruits and vegetables he'll consume. He'll only consume bananas and only in smoothies, and he avoids nightshades including peppers, mushrooms, eggplants and tomatoes, Campbell said.

"I’m very cautious about tomatoes," Campbell added. "They cause inflammation."
