About Me

I love Jesus. I love my family. I love photography. I love books. I love thinking. Probably in that order. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful daughters, a house, and a camera. I enjoy spending time talking to my husband, playing with my girls, redecorating my house and shooting things with my camera. In my spare time, I sleep.

A Step-by-Step guide to a Wildtree Freezer Meal Workshop

What is a Wildtree Freezer Meal Workshop?  You are about to step into my kitchen and find out!


Wildtree is a direct sales food company that was founded on the premise that food should be natural, nutritious, delicious and easy to prepare - all at the same time. Our products are made with the finest ingredients available and contain no preservatives, additives, MSGs or dyes. We are GMO free, nut free and certified Organic!
"Wildtree offers the highest quality herbs, spices and culinary blends that are free of preservatives, additives, fillers and promote a healthier lifestyle. We believe in the value of making cooking a quicker, easier, more healthful project for those who are short on time. Wildtree also offers a fun adventure for those who wish to be more creative in the kitchen."
Our Freezer Meal Workshops have been a hit because everyone needs to eat but not everyone has the time to cook tasty, nutritious meals with their busy lifestyles! FMW allow families to feel good about what they are feeding their families while satisfying the tastebuds of even the most picky eaters! All our recipes were tested on a nationwide level before being included in the workshops so you can trust that you'll love what you'll eat!

I thought that I would walk you through a workshop step-by-step so that you either know exactly what to expect before attending, so you can put your freezer meals together at home if you miss the party date OR so you can host a party long distance when your rep (myself) cannot attend!

For more information on our company,  hosting a workshop,  or our products visit my website: 

Okay...first item of business is to pick a workshop menu.  If you are an invited guest your host will pick a menu; if you are the host--you decide which you want to do.  At the current time there are 6 workshops to choose from.

Once a menu has been chosen, orders are taken by the rep and submitted.  All the items for the party are shipped to either the host or the rep.  If you are the host and they come to you, you are responsible for sorting items for the party.  If substitutions or additional items were ordered by the guests, your rep will make sure you know which items were ordered by who.   

Now before you get to the party...the rep will provide you with the Grocery List and Prep sheet.  This tells you exactly what grocery items you need to purchase.   


Once groceries are purchased it is time to prepare your bags for the workshop.  You would complete this step within a day or two of the party.  Instructions for this are on the Grocery List and Prep sheet.  You start by labeling your freezer bags 1-10.


You then begin chopping the meats and veggies and filling the bags per the instructions on your Grocery List and Prep sheet.


Continue until all 10 of your bags are filled!


Store these in your refrigerator or freezer until the day of the workshop...or if you are doing this independently at home you may continue to the next step!


On the day of the workshop you will bring your cooler with your 10 filled bags, 10 additional empty freezer bags, all the remaining groceries from your list, an apron and some measuring cups and spoons.  Your Wildtree products will be waiting for you at your host's house, as well as a Workstation recipe list and bag labels.
 

 If you are at a party with a rep, before you get started, your rep will tell you a little bit about Wildtree product's and why they are a healthier choice, she will talk to you a bit about our company's mission and how meal planning and Freezer Meal workshops are a big part of that, and she will explain the business opportunity with Wildtree and how you can earn good money helping people eat better with such a small no-risk investment.

After her talk, you will get started on your meals!!  In addition to the Wildtree products and your groceries from home, you will need a few other random everyday food items.  At a traditional rep attended workshop, these are community items that have been provided by the representative.  


Here is a shot of all the things I needed to complete this workshop!


Time to dig in!!  You start with Bag #1 and add to the bag what it says to on your Workstation Recipes page.  




 Once everything is added, zip the bag up and squish to blend!



Once the contents are mixed to your satisfaction...You put your full bag into one of your empty bags for an extra layer of protection in the freezer and to give you a place to slip your bag label in.  This step is entirely optional for you, but it is the way I've found works best for me.



Do this for each recipe until all 10 bags are complete.


At a traditional workshop, once you have finished your meals and have cleaned up your workstation, you will have the opportunity to browse a catalog and order any additional products that you want to try.  You will also be sent home with additional recipes and a Freezer Inventory List to hang on your fridge which explains how to prepare each meal and what good sides would be!


If you are not the host, the rep may also want to know when you want to host your own workshop to earn free products, because she knows that once you've gone to a Wildtree Freezer Meal Workshop...You will definitely want to go again! :)
