While mom might tout the importance of eating those fruit and vegetables every day, making that healthy eating decision is an important choice. Although Spiderman might have said that with great power comes great responsibility, fueling that power is key for any and every hero. With these new Marvel inspired Dole recipes, it is time to recruit some Heroes of the Soul one plate of healthy eating at a time.
Dole encourages families to find creative ways to bring more fruits and vegetables to the family table. Through engaging recipes that channel favorite Marvel Characters, Disney Princesses and other family favorite stories, these dishes often become family favorites. The story might entice that first bite, but the flavors bring everyone back time and again.
As part of the new Dole recipes launch, the company is looking to celebrate the heroes in all aspects of people’s lives. According to Rachel Young, Dole’s manager of digital marketing and communications, “While we celebrate Marvel Super Heroes for saving the universe, this contest is dedicated to honoring the simple, positive things we all do – from showing kindness to strangers, taking care of family members and volunteering in the community to simply getting through a hard day with style, dignity and a positive spirit.”
All those qualities need to be nurtured both inside and out. Balanced, healthy eating choices can help fuel all those good decisions.
With the new Dole recipes that are part of the Heroes of the Soul campaign, four Marvel characters inspire the flavor combinations. While the names will bring that initial smile, the combination of flavors and textures delight. Plus, each one is easy to master.
For the next family pizza night, the Spidey Sense Veggie Pizza will have everyone saying yes to an extra serving. It goes to show that favorite foods can have a good for you slant.
While Gamora might be saving the universe, the Avocado-Berry Gamora Salad will have everyone feeling prepared to take on any challenge. The sweet and luscious salad satisfies.
A heartier option, the Super Soldier Hash could be either a brunch or a dinner. While this recipe has chicken sausage, it could be swapped for another protein.
And, sweeter treats are on the menu, too. Options like Banana Bucky Buckeyes and Hawkeye Bow and Arroz con Leche show that dessert doesn’t have to come with a negative connotation.
All these recipes and more can be found on the Dole website. Superheroes are more than just the characters in a book or on a screen. Isn’t it time to fuel those super qualities and strive for better?
