The Coconut Grove Chamber of Commerce is hungry to get the word out about its “Wellness Wednesday: Let’s Eat Healthy,” a monthly program whose latest installment takes place Oct. 30, noon to 2 p.m.
After all, says Katrina Boler, Co-Chair of the Chamber’s Education Committee, “If you want to be successful over the long haul, you must think about your health, and make it a priority.”
Meetings are at a different venue in the Grove each month, she added, “always keeping an eye on healthier-for-you offerings – be it a restaurant, the women’s club, or a local business or attraction.”
The October program at Saffron@Grove will include a full buffet of Indian cuisine – traditional authentic fresh vegetarian dishes prepared by Chef Mike and Anil – as well as raffle prizes. Ayesha Group Saffron@Grove is located at 2982A Grand Avenue.
Boler says that the program began as a single educational session the Chamber offered in the workplace, called Tea & Mindfulness. “But due to its popularity, the idea evolved soon into this amazing new program component.”
While some may wonder why a chamber of commerce is interested in promoting health and wellness, Boler says it’s simple. “If your health is less than optimal, maybe your business is, too. We should all be mindful of this – and be more concerned with how our health affects our work-life, not only day-to-day, but over the long-term.
The wellness lunch costs $19.50, including tax and gratuity, but does not include drinks. Seating is limited, so attendees are encouraged to make a reservation and pre-pay to ensure their place at the table by registering online.
