American actress Lauren Bowles had her career beginnings in the early ’90s. Her debut was playing a waitress recurrently in the sitcom Seinfeld. She made her first film appearance in George of the Jungle. In the 2000s, she appeared in the films The Heartbreak Kid and Dance Flick. She also landed her first regular role on television, playing Susan in Watching Ellie. The rest of the 2000s saw her mostly making guest appearances in many shows.
In the 2010s, she became known for her role as Holly Cleary in HBO’s True Blood. At the same time, she had roles in the films Hall Pass, Gone Missing, The Starving Games, and Underdog Kids. She went on to play Senator Cindy Richards in the short-lived series The Messengers. She later appeared as Monica in three episodes of Veep. Her latest role was in an episode of Modern Family.
The 47-year-old actress stays in shape by taking care of herself. She does so by eating healthily. In an interview, she got candid about her diet plan. She said: “Five years ago, I tried the Alejandro Junger cleanse, and it changed my life. I also read The China Study, which has a had a huge impact on me. I’m not completely vegan—my diet’s probably about 80 percent plant based, but I do eat some meat. I try to know where eveything comes from, though.”
“And all bets are off if my husband and I go to a really great restaurant. There’s also this great farm-to-table delivery system in L.A. that I love called Paleta. It’s completely organic, and you can get anything delivered,” she added. Of course, the actress also has her guilty pleasures. When it comes to her cravings, it’s always chocolates for her. She revealed:
“I have a huge sweet tooth, and I love to make things like zucchini muffins, you know, anything decadent like that. And I stand by the claim that chocolate can be good for you! I love having a good piece of dark chocolate, one that’s 70 percent or more cacao.”
