Pregnant actress Emily Deschanel adopts a vegan diet

London: Actress Emily Deschanel, who is married to actor David Hornsby, has adopted a new vegan diet as she is expecting her first child.

"What we want to do is give the body just enough energy so that it performs well. She loves nut, butters and sometimes we`ll do fun smoothies, especially if she`s at work. We`ll take coconut water, nut butter, and berries and make a smoothie so she`s got something to sustain her energy in a liquid form," Deschanel`s dietitian Ashley Koff told

The baby is due later this year.
