E159 Lynne Bowman
Why take cooking or health advice from a snarky grandma who isn’t a reality TV star, doesn’t have a medical degree, and doesn’t particularly like to cook? Here’s why: “Brownies for Breakfast, A Cookbook for Diabetics and the People Who Love Them,” is a cool, fun, beautiful, guidebook for anybody who wants to eat healthy: vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten-free and sugar-free. Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes more than thirty years ago, Lynne is living proof that you can cook, eat, sleep, laugh, and walk your way out of type 2 diabetes, along with other chronic ailments, and “Brownies for Breakfast,” tells you exactly how to do it.
Lynne has been featured at women’s expos throughout the country, teaming with actress Deidre Hall to write and publish Deidre Hall’s Kitchen Closeup (2010) and Deidre Hall’s How Does She Do It? (2012). She won national awards as a creative director for Silicon Valley companies, was Creative Director at E&J Gallo Winery, Advertising Manager at RedKen Laboratories, wrote copy for agencies in San Jose, Los Angeles, and New York, and has also worked as an actress, makeup artist, screenwriter, illustrator, legal journalist and television Weather Person. Lynne has three grown children, two grandchildren, and is president of The Pescadero Foundation. She and her husband have a small farm on the coast of Northern California.
