Natalie Portman is one of quite a few celebrities who follow a vegan diet, but she admits that she’s abandoned her strict regimen in favor of a vegetarian menu during her pregnancy.
Natalie says that she is listening to what her body wants while pregnant with her first child, and her pregnancy cravings have included eggs and dairy. She said, “I know there are people who do stay vegan, but I think you have to just be careful, watch your iron levels and your B12 levels and supplement those if there are things you might be low in in your diet.”
Natalie also added that going back to a vegetarian diet has made life easier for her as far as eating on the run goes. She noted, “If you’re not eating eggs, then you can’t have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when that’s all you want to eat. I actually wanted eggs at the beginning and then they grossed me out after awhile.”
Natalie Portman is due this summer. Will she go back to a vegan regime after the baby arrives?
