In an interview with Ladies Home Journal, for the magazine’s feature write up Real Beauty at Every Age, actress Emily Deschanel revealed how she nurtures herself. And thankfully there wasn’t a single mention of indulging in a slice of Muenster or a serving of scrambled eggs.
“Saying no to meat makes me feel stronger inside; I feel aligned with my morals and ethics,” said Deschanel.
The 34-year-old Bones star also discussed what it’s like being a pregnant vegan:
I still have to defend myself because people don't understand it (being vegan). As a pregnant woman especially, people will say to me, ‘You must eat meat and dairy.’ You really have to tap into your self-esteem whenever people try to convince you you're making the wrong choice.
Isn't refreshing to see a vegan celebrity sticking to their guns?
You can catch Emily Deschanel this fall in the seventh season of Fox’s hit crime drama Bones.
