BOSTON, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Purple Carrot, the 100% plant-based meal kit company, today announced a partnership with World Champion and three-time gold medalist Aly Raisman to promote the benefits of plant-based eating. A proponent of living an active and healthy lifestyle, Raisman has recently experienced the benefits, both mentally and physically, of consuming a more plant-based diet and has enjoyed the quality and convenience that Purple Carrot meals provide each week. At a time when more consumers are reducing their meat and dairy consumption, Purple Carrot and Raisman will showcase just how easy and delicious it is to eat more plants, and how it can positively impact one's health.
"I believe that it is really important to prioritize your well-being, both mentally and physically, so you can be the best version of yourself," saidBoston-area native Raisman. "I recently started incorporating plant-based food into my daily routine with Purple Carrot's meals each week, and I've noticed a major improvement in my overall well-being and energy. I travel often so cooking has become very therapeutic for me when I'm home, especially with the fun and convenient recipes that Purple Carrot provides."
