Natalie Portman Drops Being Vegan

Oh, say it ain’t so!

Natalie Portman has made the official announcement to the world that since she become pregnant, she’s dropped veganism from the starring role in her life.

“I actually went back to being vegetarian when I became pregnant, just because I felt like I wanted that stuff,” Portman said. “I was listening to my body to have eggs.”

“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.”

“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,” she said. “I actually wanted eggs at the beginning and then they grossed me out after awhile.”

Whether or not cravings mean your body really “needs” something is subjective, and some vegan moms have offered advice on how to control this or channel it into a taste for another vegan food.

But getting iron and B12 from the form of vegan supplements is as easy as dairy-free and egg-free pie, so there’s no excuse for stealing Chicken Little’s goodies.

But thing’s could be worst.

At least Natalie’s still a vegetarian.

    If any respect for the “veganism” was left, it just disappeared with these statements.

    She’s being egoist by not thinking at the animals who suffered to give her those “bakery” cakes.

    *for HER “veganism”

    As a pregnant vegan myself, I was quite disheartened by this announcement. I’ve been having major cheese cravings that I’ve been fighting all the way, and don’t intend to give into but when I’m getting judgement from others on my decision, it’s always been a good argument that ‘Natalie Portman and Alicia Silverstone are pregnant vegans, and they are a picture of health!’
    This is no doubt fuelling the anti-vegan-pregnancy debate but each to their own, I guess, even if I don’t agree with it. I’m struggling to find -anything- to eat at the moment due to my extreme food aversions but I’m under no illusions that eating cheese or dairy will help aid the health of me or my baby, I’m just hoping the worst of it is over after the first trimester!

    Nutritional yeast is a very beneficial vegan food to incorporate into the diet when pregnant (and any time really). It is loaded with numerous important vitamins & minerals from iron to folic to zinc, as well as B12 if the proper variety is obtained. A nice cheezy flavor, it goes great on popcorn, pastas, pizza, salads, soups, avocado dips, etc. Should be a shelf staple of every veg kitchen
