Whether you're embarking on a gluten-free diet, trying to stick to one, or legitimately have an allergy to require gluten-free, then you might want to check out the events Hy-Vee has going on this month.

The offerings are virtual (so you can stay in your PJ's with your gluten-free muffin). Here are their options for May:

  • Freezer Meal Workshops. This is good for you if you use the excuse "but I don't have time to cook". These workshops will teach you how to meal prep this summer, and will also healthy recipes you can make complete with a shopping list. It's $10 and you'll get a guide, shopping list, and shoppable link for Hy-Vee's Aisles Online. You can do the workshops alongside a dietician or you can do them on your own. Here's the link to register.
  • On-Demand & Scheduled Gluten-Free Nutrition Tours. This seems like it would be good for you if you're considering the gluten-free route. You'll explore the gluten-free meal and snack options at Hy-Vee with a dietician and you can get any questions you have about a gluten-free diet answered. It's free and can be done virtually, on-demand, or you can schedule a time. If you want to schedule a time, reach out to Alea Fite at ALesterFite@hy-vee.com.

  • Wellness Wednesdays. Hy-Vee dieticians offer Wellness Wednesday sessions from 12:00 p.m.-12:30 p.m. every Wednesday. These are also free and they're done virtually. Each class will have a simple recipe demonstration featuring food from Hy-Vee's gluten-free line, Good Graces. You can register for a Wellness Wednesday session here.
