Zooey Deschanel Is Vegan No More


Zooey Deschanel


Stating she needs a little meat in her diet, the actress who is allergic to some dairy products said she gave it her best while being vegan.

Actress Zooey Deschanel was forced to give up her vegan diet - because it was far too limiting. The "Elf" star gave up meat some years ago but recently turned her back on her vegetarian and non-dairy regimen after discovering she couldn't eat soy or wheat products.

She tells Bust magazine, "I gave it a good try, but sometimes you just need a little something, a little meat." She added to Health magazine, her food sensitivities made it difficult for her to star healthy as a vegetarian.

Deschanel was featured in the eighth episode of the first season of the Bravo TV's "Top Chef Masters". In the cooking competition show, she asked the chefs to cater a vegan lunch party for her family and friends using no eggs, dairy, soy, or gluten.

    Her sis is a healthy vegan... I'm surprised they didn't talk about how to eat healthy as a vegan w/o soy, gluten, etc. It is more than doable. Doing it for almost a year and haven't felt better!

    Geez, you would think Zooey would know that SOY and WHEAT are two of the worst vegan foods EVER. Contrary to popular belief, soy is NOT health food.
