Anyone in need of new and delicious healthy recipes to enjoy throughout 2014? Look no further — Halifax Regional Health System’s Wellness Committee has created a 2014 Healthy Recipe Calendar filled with recipes submitted by HRHS employees.
Put to fruition by the HRHS Wellness Committee, this project started as a wellness initiative for employees. They were asked to submit healthy recipes. Once submitted, the recipes were reviewed by HRHS’s dietician to make sure they were, in fact, healthy. After review, a winner was chosen each month, and the 12 winning recipes were then printed in a 2014 calendar.
The calendars are now being sold in The Wishing Well Gift Shop, located inside Halifax Regional Hospital. Each calendar is $5, and all proceeds will go toward future wellness initiatives much like this one.
“We are very pleased with the response we received from employees wanting to submit their healthy recipes,” said Wendy Jones, benefits specialist. “We are excited to now be able to share them with the community.”
Calendar proceeds will be used to fund future wellness initiatives for HRHS employees.
“Wellness initiatives are put in place to help our employees stay healthy and fit to better serve our patients and community,” said Jones.
The public is invited to stop by The Wishing Well Gift Shop to pick up a 2014 Healthy Recipe Calendar. They also serve as great gifts this holiday season.
