Hey, friends! How’s it going? Yesterday, I briefly mentioned an exciting announcement, so let’s get to it: Jen and I have teamed up to start the Fitness and Frozen Grapes & Jen’s Best Life Book Club!
We’ll read one book each month, and since we’re both healthy living bloggers, we plan to select readings that address these types of themes: think athletes’ biographies to trending wellness texts to food and nutrition best sellers. Each month, our group will meet in New York City for a potluck gathering on a Sunday afternoon (obviously, food would be involved!), and there will be a virtual discussion component as well; on the following Tuesday, Jen and I will blog about the in-person discussion and include links to your digital book review if you choose to write one. Oh, and we have an official hashtag too: #FJBookClub!
So what will we read this month? Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life.
We selected this book because intuitive eating is a popular topic these days, and plus, we both approach nutrition from an athletic standpoint—fueling our workouts, replenishing calories post-workout, etc.—and cleaning eating is important for peak performance. Overall, we’re curious about intuitive eating, but we didn’t want a book that purely functioned as a how-to guide.
Here’s the Amazon.com description:
With the scientific expertise of Dr. Lilian Cheung in nutrition and Thich Nhat Hanh’s experience in teaching mindfulness the world over, Savor not only helps us achieve the healthy weight and well-being we seek, but also brings to the surface the rich abundance of life available to us in every moment.
If you’d like to join us, then just fill out this Google form. We’ll send information about the NYC meet up, and we’ll also keep you posted on the virtual discussion and blog link-up.
So go sign up!
