Forget about Folgers! Tom Brady revealed on Monday, January 11, that he doesn’t drink coffee in the morning — because he’s never even tried it.

“I never had any coffee or anything like that,” Brady, 38, said during an appearance on WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan podcast. “I just never tried it.”

Asked about his favorite junk food, he replied: “Probably burgers or ice cream.”

As previously reported, the New England Patriots quarterback and his wife, retired supermodel Gisele Bundchen, follow a strict diet at home. They do their best to avoid caffeine, dairy, white flour and white sugar.

“So no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms or eggplants. Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but just maybe once a month. I’m very cautious about tomatoes. They cause inflammation,” their chef, Allen Campbell, told Boston.com last week.

“Eighty percent of what they eat is vegetables,” he added. “[I buy] the freshest vegetables. If it’s not organic, I don’t use it. And whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, beans. The other 20 percent is lean meats: grass-fed organic steak, duck every now and then, and chicken. As for fish, I mostly cook wild salmon.”

Brady and Bundchen’s diet made headlines earlier this month — but not as much as Brady’s no coffee policy. Fans of the athlete have been reacting to Brady’s new interview via Twitter.

“So apparently Tom Brady has never had coffee. I’m trying to wrap my brain around that. #coffeeismyfavoritefoodgroup,” one commenter tweeted on Tuesday.

A second noted: “More evidence that Tom Brady is a robot … first it comes out he only eats vegetables and now today he admits that he’s never drank coffee.”
