Plant-Based Eating Club in a Discussion of ‘Eating You Alive’

October 29, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The UU Plant Based Eating Club, housed at the First Unitarian Universalist Society in Newton, invites you to a discussion of the film Eating You Alive. The film addresses the role of plant-based eating in maintaining health and avoiding chronic and acute diseases, relying on information from respected experts, celebrities, and everyday folks sharing information and experiences. The film has a very likable protagonist – a female physician who is diagnosed in her mid twenties with Multiple Sclerosis and figures out diet-related strategies to manage her chronic disease. Spoiler alert: she succeeds in pretty spectacular fashion.

People will watch the movie on their own and then participate in a group discussion on Zoom. There will be two Zoom discussion dates, on Thursday, October 20 at 7pm and Saturday, October 29 at 7pm. People are welcome to join one or both discussions. For more information and to sign up, go to the First Unitarian Universalist Society website.

About the UU Plant-Based Eating Club

The UU Plant-Based Eating Club is a group of around 40 people who desire to learn about and eat more nutritious and delicious meals together using plant-based whole foods.

We are all exploring the powerful ways food can sustain and improve the health and vitality of people and the planet. You are welcome to join us no matter what your dietary and religious practices are, as long as you are interested in supporting other group members in their pursuit of a whole food, plant-based lifestyle and are considering it for yourself whether in whole or in part.
