In honor of National Celiac Disease Awareness Month in May, Hy-Vee dietitians will host events focused on gluten-free recipes.

Events will include nutrition store tours and virtual cooking classes like Freezer Meal Workshops and Wellness Wednesday classes. Good Graces, Hy-Vee’s private label gluten-free line, will be featured in each class. Good Graces offers a wide variety of affordable gluten-free products, including pastas, flours, pizzas and more.

Throughout the month, Hy-Vee dietitians will host virtual, gluten-free Freezer Meal Workshops. For $10, individuals can register to receive a step-by-step guide, recipes, a shopping list and a Hy-Vee Aisles Online shoppable link. Workshops will include easy summer meal prep tips to make ahead of time and product recommendations to help individuals reach their health goals while balancing a busy lifestyle. Workshops can be completed virtually, alongside a dietitian or on one's own.

Hy-Vee dietitians will help customers navigate the aisles during complimentary virtual, on-demand or scheduled gluten-free nutrition store tours. During these tours, a dietitian will share gluten-free meal and snack choices that can be found at Hy-Vee stores and answer questions viewers have about following a gluten-free diet. Tours, which are also available in Spanish, can be scheduled by emailing Alea Lester Fite at [email protected]

Hy-Vee dietitians will host complimentary virtual Wellness Wednesday classes each Wednesday from noon to 12:30 p.m. During the month of May, topics will include Hidden Sources of Protein, Eat Your Vegetables, Anti-Inflammatory Spices and Women’s Health. Each class will include a simple and delicious recipe demonstration featuring Good Graces. Individuals can register for a Wellness Wednesday session now.
