Why Anthony Minichiello Sydney Roosters is going organic

“Robbo told me how the boys have gone a certain way over the last few years [with food]and he wanted to revisit what we did in 2013 and 2014 when we eliminated bread and sodas and brought in an organic food cart to cook us fresh veggies and lots of protein.

“I told Robbo that I’ve now become a qualified nutritionist and can take over things if you want and he said ‘let’s do it’.

“The guys did really well. I shared my story and my injuries and I didn’t want the guys to follow the same path I did, where I was injured and broken for four years before I changed.

What’s on and off the Roosters menu

Good: meat from grass-fed animals; pasture chicken; Organic fruits and vegetables

Bad: vegetable oil; processed foods; non-alcoholic drink; Alcohol and bread in moderation

“It’s about eating as much as possible, whole, fresh, nutrient-dense foods that give you clean energy and promote healing.

“The foods you don’t want are processed foods, vegetable oil, and refined sugar.”

Minichiello said there are elements of the keto diet that include fat rather than carbs, but the diet is more of a combination of different trends he’s followed over the years.

Players can still eat bread in moderation and drink alcohol in moderation, while Minichiello promoted grass-fed red meat, grass-fed chickens, and pesticide-free and “toxic-free” fruits and vegetables.


Meanwhile, Minichiello will host an event on Tuesday night to open the club’s new $12.5 million center of excellence at Allianz Stadium – the eye-catching facility is expected to be named after billionaire chairman Nick Politis. The training facility runs the full length of the Allianz Stadium on the mezzanine level along the east stand.

It includes a recreational pool, gym and museum, including the trophies the club has won over the years, while Politis is expected to be recognized for his contribution to the club for over 50 years.

The Roosters will call Allianz Stadium their home until at least the end of 2047 after instigating a 25-year lease. The club will continue to train across the street at Kippax Fields.
