Healthy Eaters, INC (Inspiration, Nutrition, Change)

A new program to change our relationship with food

A New Year’s Resolution is hard to keep.  While it is true we must take responsibility for our own actions, why must we do it alone?

Meetings start with a topic followed by questions and group discussions.  Learning to research, discussing results and sharing advice will inspire and encourage.  There will be an experienced leader to help.

No fees, no weigh ins.  All are welcome.

Come join us. Saturday 12 to 1 PM

Participating in creative activities has been shown to improve our cognitive skills and create a confident and optimistic attitude.

Craftsman Exploration – Thursday

 Thursday evenings  5 to 7 pm.

This group will explore the arts and the crafts through peer teaching.  Many people have unfinished projects at home and materials which need to be dusted off and used again.  These will be drop in workshops.  Observers are welcome.  You can even bring another activity, like knitting, to do while interacting with the group, but participants are responsible for supplies.  When possible, tools will be provided and shared, depending on the activity and the number of participants.

Cook Book Club  – Are you interested?  When shall we meet?

The Paige has a good collection of cookbooks.  Let’s explore them and kitchen test the recipes.  Come help us develop this group which will meet at the Paige … participants will choose when to meet and what the topics will be.  Each session might have a theme.  We may plan an ethnic meal or perhaps try cookie recipes. Should we compile a cookbook?

Sharing with others in groups reduces anxiety, improves self-esteem, and helps members’ sense of overall well-being.  Where else can you accomplish that, enjoy the company of some very interesting people, and learn something new?
