Partnering with the North Attleboro YMCA, An Unlikely Story invites you to join the "Y Eat Healthy" Discussion Group focused on healthy eating and living! The group gathers at the bookstore and the North Attleboro YMCA in alternating months. We explore books, cookbooks, food literature, cooking methods, videos, and lifestyle changes centered on real, whole foods, and a balanced lifestyle.
This Discussion Group is open to all -- omnivores to vegans -- who want to talk about food, health, cooking and balanced-living principles. We request that everyone remain curious and respectful of each other’s choices. Members of the group will share and discuss a variety of resources each month to keep the discussions dynamic and broad-based. Food tastings will be sprinkled in as well! An Unlikely Story offers 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.
Instead of focusing on one specific book, we've offered a list of possible books to peruse before -- and after -- our meeting (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.
November -- Tuesday, 11/12, 6:30 - 8:00 PM at AUS (Conference Room)
In November, please join us to discuss the practice of Mindfulness. As we charge forward into the holidays, incorporating Mindfulness and Meditation into our daily lives can help alleviate some of the stress of the season. Whether it's mindfully eating to avoid extra holiday pounds, or mindfully staying in the moment to avoid being overwhelmed. Mindfulness is scientifically proven to reduce stress and increase contentedness. We'll enjoy a guided mindful eating exercise as well as a short, guided meditation.
