Bryce Dallas Howard Explains Quitting Veganism

Bryce Dallas Howard opens up to Self magazine in the July 2010 issue (featuring cover girl Anna Paquin) about her choice to no longer pursue a vegan lifestyle.

“I was a vegan for several years – all the way through my pregnancy and the birth of my son,” the 29-year-old actress shared.

“Becoming Vegan was actually more of a personal choice than a health choice for me, but there were many wonderful health benefits that came along with that lifestyle. Unfortunately, I learned a few months after my son’s birth that I actually had a rare condition that was triggered by pregnancy, where consuming the amino acids from meat became critical to my health. My doctor sat me down and finally said, ‘Bryce, you need to choose between your ethics and your future.’”

“It was actually a very challenging and emotional transition to make,” Bryce added, “but I was grateful to my doctor for putting things in perspective for me, and I was grateful for my time as a Vegan as I now have such a more profound appreciation for where my food comes from.”
