A friend posted about Emily Deschanel‘s July interview with Ladies Home Journal in which she discusses her approah to being happy and living healthy, which includes maintaining her vegan diet through her pregnancy.
I still have to defend myself because people don’t understand it. 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’s personal, be-true-to-yourself attitude resembles that of her on screen persona’s; her dogged assertion that facts are everything.
I didn’t hop on the Bones wagon until late in season 4; now BONES marathons on TNT have become the thing of lazy holidays with the family.
I have to admit I’ve never read any of the books the show is based from, so I’m not sure if the character Deschanel plays, Dr. Temperance Brennan, was originally vegan or if that was written in for the actress.
