The Healthy Galley: A Holistic Approach to Eating

Lynne Bowman-

What is the secret recipe for reversing chronic disease, looking and feeling better and most important creating sustainable health habits?

Eating healthy is exceptionally delicious with my guest and “healthy gal”, Lynne Bowman. She is wise and witty and has created a whole food, plant based and practical way of eating. This holistic approach is what has helped Lynne to overcome her own health issues.

Lynne was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes over 30 years ago. Through her understanding of the importance of food and modifying her lifestyle, she became living proof that you can cook, eat, sleep and walk your way out of type 2 diabetes, or at least the ill effects of it. In addition, the benefits extend to aging well and looking fantastic!

In her new book, “Brownies for Breakfast,” she takes us through her Healthy Galley and shares exactly how you can do it too. It is a wonderful feast for the eyes as well.

Would you ever think of eating brownies for breakfast? Probably not, but you may rethink that after hearing this episode.

In my conversation with Lynne, we are going to be talking about:

  • Reversing chronic disease through lifestyle changes
  • Healthy habits that you can really keep
  • Her secret to aging well

Lynne’s colorful and charismatic personality pairs well with the food she eats. Perhaps that is another benefit to following her lead. She is full of energy and continues to be active in truly LIVING her life.

Her recipes are Low-carb, gluten-free, super nutritious recipes everybody in the family will like, and anybody can make. Just when you thought your favorites were out, Lynne redesigned them without all the bad stuff.

“When you allow yourself, mentally and physically, to eat high-quality food it changes your relationship with food. If you sit down to a table full of green and yellow and pink and red and orange and beautiful foods with beautiful fragrance and textures and you say to yourself “I’m gonna eat whatever I want and I get to eat whatever I want”. Suddenly now, not only is the food healthy, but your relationship without food becomes healthy. That’s huge!”

Her book “Brownies for Breakfast” is beautifully photographed and filled with easy to follow recipes to drool over.
