With summer right around the corner, we stock up on snacks made with fruits and vegetables that my children can eat when they get hungry. I love having healthy options in the kitchen, and I know my children will have better days because of it. When I heard about Dole’s Get Up And Grow Tour, we couldn’t get to Dallas fast enough!
The Get Up And Grow Tour, organized by the Dole Food Company and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze, is headed to Dallas! The tour is an 11,700-mile, 115-day journey with an intent to give North Americans a number of tangible ways to make 2015 their healthiest and happiest summer EVER! You can find it in Dallas through June 3.
It’s a challenge for the local residents to eat better this summer by receiving some exciting health and wellness rewards.
By attending, you will see the Get Up and Grow Tour caravan and trailer, which features both a kitchen and sampling tent that offers free recipe samples, a DIY smoothie bar, free giveaways for the kids, expert nutritional and produce advice and surprises.
Visitors can also create their own customizable, interactive pledge that gives them the chance to receive wellness rewards like free DOLE fresh produce, Fitbits® and a wellness getaway in California. Visitors can sample a variety of fruit, vegetable and salad recipes created for Get Up and Grow! – ranging from the Banana and Blue, Breakfast Smoothie, Power Punch Smoothie and Spinach-Avocado Hummus to the Grilled Banana Parfait, Southwestern Gazpacho, Caesar’s Bounty Salad and Charred Summer Salad, which has been proclaimed 2015’s “Official Salad of Summer.”
The tour is stopping at roughly 480 supermarkets and special events throughout the U.S. and Canada, so you want to make sure you don’t miss out!
