Actress Emily Deschanel went vegan at the age of 15 after watching a documentary on the effects animal products have on the environment and our health.
Twenty-two years later, the star of “Bones” is raising her two-year-old son, Henry, with husband David Hornsby, to be “99-percent vegan.”
”Henry is 99-percent vegan because my husband is not 100-percent vegan,” admits Deschanel.
The actress has a break from shooting this summer and is planning “to hang out with my son, put him to bed, and cuddle – do all of the fun things I love doing with him.”
Deschanel, like most working moms, sometimes struggles to maintain the motivation to exercise. ”You work all of these hours and when you have time off, you don’t want to spend it working out while raising a child,” she said. “[But it is] important … to be healthy and show him that that’s important.”
