Tampa Bay Buccaneers and former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a seven-time Super Bowl champ who’s been known for prioritizing his health. In his new edition of “The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance,” Brady further explains and details his revolutionary training, conditioning and wellness system that has kept him atop the NFL at an age when most players are deep into retirement.
Wanting to help others, he founded TB12, a health and wellness brand, with co-founder Alex Guerrero. We’re loving the recipes featured in the book, which is why we’re so happy that he’s sharing some of his favorites with Nutritious Life.
This recipe is perfect for a light vegetarian meal for two served with a simple green salad. You can also split this into four plates and add grilled fish, chicken or shrimp and additional sauce. Plus, if you’re lucky enough to have any sauce leftover you can store it in the refrigerator for up to a week, or freeze it for up to a month. If the liquid separates (this is normal), just stir before serving.
We’re not saying that you’ll be throwing touchdown passes soon after making this, but this recipe scores big with us.
No wonder broccoli is a favorite in the Brady household. The crunchy, green veggie is high in fiber, contains a long list of vitamins and minerals, and also has more protein than most other vegetables. Almonds don’t just add a distinct taste to the romesco sauce, the calcium-rich nuts also boost bone health. Add in roasted red pepper, and you’ve got a meal rich in vitamin C to boot.
