Gisele and Tom go for a raw diet on vacation, but make room for dessert

The Internet freaked out earlier this year when the personal chef for Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady revealed their super-healthy diet.

Now, their other personal chef — yes, they have at least two at all times — recently revealed that they don't even let their hair down diet-wise when they go on vacation.

Joanne Gerrard Young, master raw chef and the brains behind The Healing Cuisine, is the person in charge of the pair's meals at their home in Costa Rica.

"They don’t always do raw, but since it’s so easy to do in Costa Rica, we do a 80/20 raw diet, with big colorful salads and lots of fresh veggies," Young told Well and Good. "‘G’ likes to eat vegetarian sometimes, so we’ll do a grain separate from the protein, and she’s totally into juice cleanses, so she’ll do about one per year."

The pair's biggest meal comes at lunch with a small-sized dinner. Desserts aren't big on their list, but Young tries her recipes — including a coconut mango cream pie — on them.

"They didn’t want to do desserts any more, for healthy eating purposes," she added, "but I shared all of my raw vegan desserts with them and they love them and have them all the time."

And while their ultra-healthy diet may seem a bit extreme, they're mostly approaching it in the right way.

"The main idea of their diet — to avoid processed food and focus on fruits, veggies, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds — is a good one," Toby Amidor, a nutrition expert and author of The Greek Yogurt Kitchen: More Than 130 Delicious, Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Day, told SheKnows.

But, of course, it helps that they can afford the best of the best — but that doesn't mean we can't all do the same (or some version of it).

"It appears that they are very lucky to have a very knowledgable personal chef on-hand," Amidor added. "Their chef cooks ancient grains like millet so they still get their whole grains. They also eat beans and quinoa. Anyone can learn to cook these delicious foods, although it may take some time to learn."
