For the first time since the mid-2000s, Tom Brady won’t be spending Thanksgiving with his wife after they divorced last month.
Brady was asked about his plans for the holiday during his latest podcast episode.
“Thanksgiving, it’s always time for family,” Brady said, via Us Weekly. “When you think about this holiday and the commitment that parents make and that my parents made to me and my career is unbelievable. You know what I mean?
“It’s just, I’m here in my 23rd season, looking forward to finishing strong here after Thanksgiving, and obviously with a lot of gratitude for the people that have made such a huge impact in my life and supported me throughout this amazing career.”
Brady added that he wants to be “the best dad” possible for his kids.
Brady was also asked if he would stray from his strict TB12 diet.
“I know I’ve had a pretty strict diet over the years, but that’s one thing that loosens up around Thanksgiving,” the Tampa Bay Buccaneers star said. “I get to eat kind of, you know, I get to go for it, especially during the season.”
Brady’s diet includes mostly carbohydrates, “nightshade” vegetables, MSG, coffee, legumes, whole grains, roughage, and a small percentage of lean meat. He also consumes a large amount of water per day.
Through all the drama Brady has been through this season, he’s managed to keep the Buccaneers at 5-5 and on top of the NFC South through the first 11 weeks.
The team is currently on a 2-game winning streak as they come out of their bye week.
