Wellness book signing today

Columbus natives Daniel Orr and Kelly Jo Baute will sign copies of their new book, "The Wellness Lifestyle: A Chef’s Recipe for Real Life," from noon to 2 p.m. today at Natural Choices for Healthy Living at 1825 Central Ave. St. in Columbus.

Orr, a well-known chef throughout Indiana and elsewhere, owns and operates the FARMBloomington restaurant in Bloomington. Baute is the owner of A Splendid Earth Wellness, a Seymour company that offers wellness coaching to individuals and businesses, and workplace ergonomics consulting and other services.

The book focuses on eight different wellness factors — social, occupational, intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, environmental and nutritional.

The pair will be offering several of the recipes from the book on the store’s cafe menu for today only, including customer samples.  

There will also be a free gift with each purchase of the new book.

Orr said the work, published by IU Press, "is perfect for those wanting to turn a new page in their lives for the new year."
