WWKS is excited to collaborate with WorkWell Shawnee County for a new project! We are always looking for ways to support your efforts. If you or your worksite wellness groups have ideas you would like to explore or resources you are needing, connect with us!
Michelle Shima, WorkWell Shawnee County-
A few weeks ago at our monthly WorkWell Shawnee County meeting, one of our topics was "How your business plans to celebrate National Eat Healthy Day"
in November. While we were discussing how various businesses could promote the day, we also contemplated doing something as a group. One of the members threw out the idea of creating a healthy recipe book. The book would not have to be fancy or expensive and could even just be distributed electronically. The obvious benefit would be a collection of healthy recipes. The "cookbook" would also serve another purpose. It would be a way of connecting with others and recognizing businesses for their work in health promotion.
We have learned through experience that working with caterers and/or venues on serving healthy options can be difficult. Many are willing to work with you if you can present them with some ideas. This cook book will provide recipes you can share with caterers to use for worksite events or make as healthy meals at home.
If you have healthy recipes you would like to submit please send your recipe, nutritional information (if you have it), your name, and the name of your worksite to:
