Hy-Vee dietitians will cover trending nutrition topics and share simple recipes that 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.

Hy-Vee is showing attendees how to free up time in their week by prepping meals ahead in this virtual class. In less than an hour, 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. The cost is $10 per class and will be offered in both English and Spanish.
