At this Sunday’s Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service, certified nutritional counselor Nicole Graboi discusses healthy aging and ways to increase your longevity by practicing better self-care and eating intelligently.
“It’s a common myth that the number of productive years we have are largely determined by our genes,” says Graboi. “Studies of the world’s Blue Zones, where many centenarians live to a ripe old age, reveal that we have the ability to influence our longevity by our thoughts, emotions, lifestyle, and the food we eat.”
She will examine the difference between Eastern and Western views of the body and how big Pharma has used its power and wealth to co-opt every institution that might stand in its way, including Congress, the FDA, the medical profession, schools, and medical research. Nicole will also briefly discuss factory farming, the differences between plant and animal protein, the roots of the USDA food pyramid that has led to chronic disease and death, and how our emphasis on meat and sugar has led to “mental schizophrenia” and created harmful imbalances in our body.
Nicole Graboi is a certified nutritional counselor and energy practitioner. She has written two books based on her energy healing methods called “Pendulum Power. In 1990, she started a tofu factory in San Miguel that failed “because Mexicans couldn’t figure out what it was.” She has also written a book called “Tofu International” which includes many recipes that offer nutritious replacements for meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy products.

Our fellowship was born in 1987 when a small group of expatriate religious liberals came together to meet as Unitarian Universalists in San Miguel de Allende. The fellowship has been active and thriving ever since. Every UU church has it’s own flavor, and we are no exception. We are a combination of expats and visitors, each actively engaged and contributing to this wonderful Mexican community we love. Because there is a coming, going, and returning aspect, our spiritual community is extremely fluid. There is a magic in San Miguel which draws us in and binds us together—both as members of the church and of the larger community. Our programming is led by visiting ministers, community leaders, and church members, so the variety is lively. We have opportunities to meet as UU’s each week at discussion groups, breakfasts, luncheons, and in various other ways. Depending on the season, attendance fluctuates between 40 and 140. Our primary focus is on funding social action within the surrounding community. We love good music, good discussion, good food, and having visitors. We invite you to join us any Sunday morning.
