Throughout January, West Des Moines, Iowa-based supermarket chain Hy-Vee’s registered dietitians will host events to help customers focus on healthy habits and nutrition to kick off the new year.
The dietitian team will host educational events, including virtual store tours and cooking classes, as well as an in-person health fair at select locations. Following is a list of this month’s events.
Virtual Wellness Wednesdays
Hy-Vee dietitians will cover trending nutrition topics and share a simple recipe attendees can add to their routine. Each week will have a different theme, including Collagen Breakfast Recipes, Easy Lunch Meal Prep, Happy Hour and Reducing Sugary Beverage Intake, and Balance Your Plate. Wellness Wednesdays are free to attend and take place every Wednesday in January from noon to 12:30 p.m.
Virtual Freezer Meal Prep Workshop
Shoppers are invited to free up time in their week by prepping meals ahead in this virtual class. In less than an hour, attendees will learn how to prepare five freezer meals to feed 4-6 people. Menu includes Caesar Chicken, Taco Egg Bake, Root Beer Pulled Pork, Panera Copy Cat Broccoli Cheddar Soup and Mongolian Beef. Cost is $10 per class and will be offered in both English and Spanish.
