Deschanel is a committed vegan and shares that keeping up such a strict diet is surprisingly not difficult even though she’s pregnant.
“I don’t think it’s any more challenging for me than for anyone else,” she says. “The real challenge for a vegan is getting vitamin B12 and omega-3s, but you can get those in a vegetarian supplement. The funny thing is, I love kale and always used to put it in my breakfast shakes, but for some reason I can’t stand it right now.”
What does she crave while pregnant? Lemonade and Grapefruit!
“I want it all the time. That and Grapefruit. Those craving I indulge. But I also crave chocolate all the time, and I try to ignore that!.”
Deschanel stays in shape by doing Yoga and Spinning.
“I’m still spinning and doing Yoga – right now it’s prenatal Yoga DVD I do at home – but I really love classes. I like the music and the motivation you get from the people in the class with you. And I’m walking a lot these days.”
