Freezer Meal Workshops - the Wildtree Way

Introduce yourself to a new way to plan and prep dinner! Many of us would love to make some major changes to the way we eat (‘real food’ vs processed) and on top of busy schedules (kids activities, work, etc.), it’s near impossible some days to provide a yummy, healthy, homemade dinner. Meet Wildtree!
Wildtree is your source for all-natural, non-GMO, organic products that make meal time quick, simple, healthy, and….yes….delicious. Sound too good to be true? Eating healthy does not have to be costly or difficult! Whether you’re looking for new dinner ideas, ways to eat healthier, or simply want to solve the “What’s for Dinner?” dilemma, you’ll be thrilled to discover Wildtree’s way of cooking. Wildtree offers two options for you: (1.) an in-home Tasting where you can learn how to plan healthy, simple dinners and taste a variety of the products, or (2.) jump right in with a Freezer Meal Workshop where you use our products to assemble 10 yummy meals to take home and store in your freezer for those ever-busy nights.

Wildtree has a great variety of products to choose from, enticing any pallet. Personal favorites include the Alfredo Extraordinaire, Rancher Steak Rub, Tortilla Soup, Outrageous Orange Sauce, Opa Greek Seasoning, and, of course, our Grapeseed Oils. Grapeseed Oil is a Wildtree signature product: (1.) It’s good for you (reduces cholesterol, has the lowest level of saturated fats of all oils, easily digestible, contains antioxidants); (2.) tolerates high heat without burning (up to 419 degrees); (3.) a variety of amazing infused flavors to enhance your cooking! 

And that is NOT all.. read on!

I have an important announcement to make.  Believe it or not, my freezer is stocked to the brim with delicious, healthy meals for the rest of the month. This is a very big deal for me, since my meal planning capabilities took a nose-dive.  But not anymore, my friends! I’m turning a new leaf over here.  Are you ready for the best part?   Here is a sample of the kinds of meals that are sitting there ready and waiting for me to cook them:

Wildtree chipotle lime fajitas

Somebody pinch me, I think I’m dreaming.  Look how beautiful this is!  Today I’m eating the Chipotle Lime Fajitas from Wildtree. They were ready and on the table in 15 minutes. Seriously. Timesaver=lifesaver.

photo(20)I discovered Wildtree products when my friend became a Wildtree rep a few months ago. She was telling me all about their freezer meal workshops, and how the “bulk prep and freeze” method saved her sanity. Bulk prep and freeze is pretty straightforward, but I’ll explain it in case you’re wondering. Bulk prep all of your meals, then freeze them until you’re ready to eat. Remove from freezer, thaw, cook, eat, done. SO SIMPLE, and such a time saver. I decided to host a Wildtree freezer meals workshop at my house, so all of my guests products were shipped to me.  Check out all the goodness that arrived:

Since she lives in Des Moines and I live in Belmond, she hosted my party virtually.  We just sat the laptop on a barstool at the head of the table and let her do all the talking.   We actually had three locations logging in virtually!  

And here are the rest of my workshop guests!  We ate dinner while she explained what to do, then we dove in and prepared all of our meat for the freezer meals that everyone brought in coolers to the workshop. I don’t have pictures of that part since we were in a little race to see who could get done the fastest.  I didn’t win. 

Each workstation was set up with all of our Wildtree products from the Comfort Foods Workshop, plus a few extra ingredients we were asked to bring:

Wildtree products for these eight meals were included in this workshop price.
Italian “Medallions” (chicken tenders)
Italian Flank Steak
Chipotle Lime Fajitas
Slow Cooker Chipotle Lime Chicken
Adobo Grilled Chicken
Spanish Style Garlic Shrimp
Rancher Pork Chops
Best Burgers EVER!

Each freezer meal serves 4-6 people, so I divided mine into half to serve 2-3 people since it is just my husband and I, which gave me a total of sixteen dinners.  The cost of the workshop was $53.00, plus the cost of the meat which I got on sale at Fareway for about $40.  That’s sixteen dinners for $93.00, which comes to a whopping $5.81 per meal, or $2.90 per serving!  Try to beat that at a restaurant.  Plus, the added benefit is that all Wildtree products are all natural and contain no GMOs, no MSG, no nuts, and no high fructose corn syrup! 

That’s pretty amazing if you’re trying to eat clean(ish)!

Plus the party was SO MUCH FUN!  Everyone went home loaded down with meals to feed their families for the next month.  With sixteen meals in my freezer plus all the holiday prep meals in my freezer and fridge, I don't have to go grocery shopping for a while!

Do you want to have a Girl's Night Out!  Give me a call and lets set up your FMW!!!
