In the August issue of Ladies’ Home Journal, 34-year-old actress and star of the hit TV show Bones Emily Deschanel talks about some of the questions she receives while pregnant as a vegan. She shares that she typically has to defend her diet to people who insist that she must have dairy and meat during the pregnancy.
