Hy-Vee Simple Fix Employee Workshop – Back by Popular Demand!

2020 Wellness Employee Simple Fix Workshop
Sign-up now to prepare 4 easy grill meals to take home. (Employees and/or spouses are invited).

The workshop is scheduled for May 12th at 6:30 in the Hy-Vee kitchen and will last approximately 1 hour. 

The City of Windom Wellness Program will sponsor the workshop and reduce the full participant fee of  $60 to only $25 per participant (one per family)!!!.

Hy-Vee shops for the groceries, cleans and chops all the ingredients, and provides the space, bowls and utensils.

At the workshop each participant puts together 4 recipes in a separate freezer bag that they can take home, put in the freezer and then thaw out cook when they desire. Each meal includes a recipe, and cooking instructions.  The meals make anywhere from 4-8 servings. The purpose is to encourage cooking at home and becoming aware that it is cheaper to prepare meals than to eat out.

Simple Fix Recipes – May 12th Workshop

Freezer Meals for the Grill

Basil Balsamic Pork Chops

Greek Chicken
