American ski champion Lindsey Vonn is a very watchful eater. In an interview with People magazine she revealed that she only eats healthy and most importantly, cooks all her food herself, fresh.
"As an athlete, burning a lot of energy means I need to eat healthy and eat well," golfer Tiger Woods fiancée, who is currently busy watching her man play in the August Masters, said.

"I make sure everything I eat is fresh and that I prepare it myself, so I know what I'm eating," added the 30-year-old world and Olympic champion skier.
Vonn, even went on to spell out her daily nutrition in take.
The diet is even more strict, she said, during the skiing season.
