A lot of New England Patriots fans may say they’d like to be Tom Brady. But it’s a good bet that hardly as many aspire to eat like him. Over the course of his NFL career, the 40-year-old quarterback has adopted a notoriously restricted and regimented diet, as part of his overall philosophy toward health and fitness. In Brady’s new book, The TB 12 Method, which goes on sale Tuesday, the Patriots quarterback outlines what an average day of eating and working out is like in his shoes, or cleats. Or Uggs. As he as done in the past, Brady advocates eating “real foods” and achieving balance — almost to an extreme. And while the outline indeed hawks a number of Brady’s pricey self-branded nutrition products, it also provides a first-person account of the eating habits that have fascinated and flummoxed his fans. Morning On an average day, Brady says he wakes up around 6 a.m. and “immediately” drinks 20 ounces of water with … [Read more...] about What Tom Brady eats on ‘an average day,’ according to his new book
Luang Prabang is Laos' second largest city but arguably its biggest tourist draw due to its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a protection it was awarded in 1995. With a mix of striking red and gold temples and French-Indochinese buildings set along quiet winding backstreets and narrow alleys, it's mercifully serene and protected from too much overdevelopment compared to many places in Asia. As such, it's an easy laid back city to spend a few days at a leisurely pace, exploring the streets and temples, or taking a trip out along the Mekong river. It's also the best place in the country to sample Lao's incredible and underrated food, with everything from local sausages to green papaya salad and Khao Soi noodle soup on menus around town. It's well on the tourist trail of course so don't expect to have the place to yourself but with plenty to explore both in and outside of town, Luang Prabang is still one of Southeast Asia's essential and most alluring cities Things to do Kuang Si … [Read more...] about What to see, eat, drink and where to sleep in Luang Prabang, Laos
Despite Christmas being unofficially recognised as the season of gastronomic overindulgence, hedonistic Spaniards are actually far healthier during this period than the reputation that precedes them. According to a new report by the country’s Agriculture, Fishing and Food Ministry, the food product Spanish people eat the most during “La Navidad” is a fruit. Each Spaniard ate an average 1kilo of tangerines in December of last year, far more than any other drink or food product. Not bad going considering it’s not even traditional in Spain to hang up a Christmas stocking, let alone stick an orange in a sock. Next in line were two Spanish Christmas classics: Denominación de Origen (certificate of origin) wines - 650 centilitres consumed on average per person - and prawns/langoustine, 490 grammes per capita.

Where to stay While Sydney is famously lacking when it comes to great hotels, for perfect views of the Opera House, there’s only one choice: the Park Hyatt. But to really get under the skin of the city, rent an apartment outside downtown but inside the harbour or beachside suburbs. For the best selection of serviced properties, such as Billyard, a chic waterside apartment with a private ocean pool, visit contemporaryhotels.com.au. Where to eat Exquisite Australian seafood and produce take centre stage at Fred's, the Paddington restaurant helmed by Chez Panisse alumna Danielle Alvarez, who has brought a Californian sensibility to Sydney’s white-hot dining scene. Expect a deft touch, with reef fish cooked in the hearth of a pretty dining room. Saint Peter is from wunderkind ‘fish butcher’ Josh Niland, the country’s most interesting young chef, who uses all sorts of different cuts of the day’s catch to stunning effect. What to do In a country … [Read more...] about What to to, eat and see in Sydney in 2019
