Make sure to stock up on vitamins like Natalie Portman
Hollywood actress Natalie Portman revealed to Harper's Bazaar: "I usually have oatmeal or avocado toast in the morning ... I take vitamins too — vitamin D, and I'm still on prenatal vitamins. I get B12 shots once a month because it's the one thing you don't get from a vegan diet."
