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

Natalie Portman explains why she’s decided to take a vacation from veganism and give dairy products a try during her pregnancy. As a reformed vegan myself, I am in favor of this because, well, cheese is awesome. [PopEater] Keep reading »
