Meal Prep for JES Wellness

JES Holdings employees make their mason jar salads.

On Wednesday, August 2, employees in the Columbia and St. Louis, Missouri and Atlanta, Georgia offices were given the chance to attend a meal prep class at their perspective locations. As part of a six-week wellness campaign, many employees from each office attended the sessions and learned how to make mason jar salads.

Each employee in attendance was given a mason jar, ingredients and instructions on how to make the healthy, to-go salads. Then, the employees made their own and congregated with coworkers for a healthy lunch.

The two salad options were a strawberry spinach salad with strawberry-lime vinaigrette and a vegetable, goat cheese and chicken salad with balsamic dressing. Each salad had multiple vegetables and other additions for employees to put in their jars.

This class is one of two cooking classes during the 2017 JES Wellness Initiative.
