"Y" Eat Healthy Discussion Group

Partnering with the North Attleboro YMCA, An Unlikely Story invites you to join the Discussion Group (formerly a book club) focused on healthy eating and living! The group gathers at the bookstore and the North Attleboro YMCA in alternating months. They explore books, cookbooks, food literature, cooking methods, videos, and lifestyle changes centered on real, whole foods and a clean-eating lifestyle.     

This Discussion Group is open to all -- omnivores to vegans -- who want to talk about food, health and cooking. They request that everyone remain curious and respectful of each others’ choices. Members of the group will suggest a variety of resources each month to keep the discussions dynamic and broad-based. Food tastings and cooking demos will be sprinkled in as well! An Unlikely Story will offer a 10% discount on Discussion Group books in stock when bought during "Y Eat Healthy" meetings, although purchasing the books is not required for participation.

In June, our topic of discussion will be "Non-toxic Home and Body Care." Since our skin is our largest organ, it essentially "eats" everything we put on it, allowing toxins to pass into our bloodstream.  Just as we've been focusing on "cleaning up" our diets, we need to focus on "cleaning up" what we put on our skin, including products we use to clean our homes.  Please join us to learn about ingredients to avoid and how to make your own products.    

Instead of focusing on one specific book, we've offered a list of possible books to peruse before -- and after -- our meeting (and if you don't have time to look at the books, please join us anyway!)  Please feel free to share your favorite books on the topic of the month (by email to Bonnie or Jocelyn) so that they can introduce them to the group.
