No doubt that it’s always a good time to eat more veggies and fruit, but the summer time is just RIPE for enjoying these 4 Fruit and Veggie Recipes. Mamachallenge is excited to partner with Dole to launch the 2016 Get up and Grow Together! Tour kick-off in Dallas. Compensation for time and product was provided by Dole, but all opinions shared here are those of mamachallenge.com.
No matter what type of diet plan or nutrition program you follow, one thing remains consistent: eating your vegetables and fruit helps create a healthy lifestyle. As parents we’re always trying to find ways to get our kids eating more veggies and fruit (just check out my segment on apples), but it’s just as important for us to get ours, too!
Did you know bananas are North America’s most popular produce?
That’s just part of the reason for the Dole 2016 Get up and Grow Together! Tour. Started last year as a way to get us all by adopting a diet rich in fruits and veggies, the 42-stop tour launches in Dallas on May 26 on “National Eat More Fruit and Vegetables Day.”
Studies have shown that broccoli helps to decrease the risk of diabetes.
The tour stops at supermarkets and public events throughout Dallas-Fort Worth, offering free produce-filled recipe samples, recipe booklets and other giveaways, an interactive Kid’s Corner, and fruit and veggie-themed photo-sharing opportunities – all to showcase the fun, flavor and health benefits of a plant-based diet.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the recipes you’ll be able to sample at the Get up and Grow! Together stops (and now make at home, too!)
Brussels Sprouts and Grilled Pineapple Salad
Strawberries mean summer! Love them everyday but this new recipe for strawberry toast with a ricotta-banana spread and a balsamic-honey vinaigrette is the perfect app for the season!

I just finished using my Vegetti to make a giant container of zoodles for my lunches. I was thinking as I was making it that I need to make a fruit salad. We love fruits and vegetables in our house.
These recipes are just perfect for summertime. Looks absolutely delicious and refreshing!
Oh my goodness, that grilled watermelon looks amazing. I have never grilled it before, but want to try it. This sounds like such a great campaign
I have been wanting to try some grilled watermelon. I haven’t been able to yet, but this makes me want it even more. I can’t wait to try it out.
