America's champion gymnast Aly Raisman has revealed how opting for a plant-based diet has helped her calm down. In a recent interview with Women's Health magazine, Aly, who owns 85 different flower plants, vegetables and succulents at home, said being close to plants had a huge impact on her food choices.
"It's been really calming for me. It brings me a lot of happiness and allows me to practise gratitude for where my food is coming from," said Aly.
Talking about her eating habits, she said: "I always eat for a purpose and I'm always thinking in terms of what's going to keep me energised."
