Patriot's quarterback Tom Brady "wrote" a cookbook called the TB12 Nutrition Manual in 2016, then charged fans $200 to get it. Still, the high cost tag didn't keep hungry people from gobbling it up. The cookbook, which features 89 recipes for "achieving your peak performance," sold out quickly. Apparently, all that is standing between you and four Super Bowl rings is a big bowl of avocado ice cream.
