Emily Deschanel Opts to Stay Vegan While Pregnant

Celebrity Mom-to-be Emily Deschanel is Under Fire

Actress Emily Deschanel, who is best known for her role on the television show “Bones,” is expecting her first child and is making headlines for her decision to stick with her vegan diet, according to the Ladies Home Journal.

Because the dietary restrictions do not allow meat or dairy, Deschanel has come under fire for depriving her unborn baby of some nutrients.

“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,” Deschanel told the Journal.
