Captain Marvel recipes

Captain Marvel is taking the world by storm – rightfully so. Higher. Further. Faster. is Carol Danver’s motto, which she uses to encourage girls and women everywhere to be their best selves. I have two young daughters and I want more than anything to see them succeed in life. I also want them to be their healthiest selves, so I was thrilled when DOLE teamed up with Marvel for the Powering the Hero Within campaign. It is one of the many reasons we love their products.

About Powering The Hero Within

While Carol Danvers fights to save Earth from a galactic battle as Captain Marvel, Dole is celebrating other female superheroes for their battles waged a bit closer to home. “Powering the Hero Within” (#DoleHero) is a 10-week empowered-living alliance between Dole and Marvel’s Captain Marvel inspired by Danvers’ dramatic transformation into the title character of the much-anticipated March 8 release. Taking its cue from Danvers, Dole is acknowledging influential women in food, health, and wellness plus female-focused nonprofit groups working toward a healthier, more heroic world. This initiative launches Feb. 25 and continuing through May 5.

According to Lisa Overman, director of marketing for Dole, the collaboration is meant to honor Captain Marvel’s distinction as the first female superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to headline her own film.

We’re applauding the women everywhere who use their powers, whether supernatural or everyday, to fight for a healthier and more equitable planet. At the top of this list are all the female farmers, chefs, doctors, nurses, dietitians, scientists, engineers, philanthropists and others who have sacrificed over the years to give us a more fulfilling, nutritious life.

Inspiring Women

Among the health-related female superheroes that Dole is inspired by and hopes may inspire others to everyday heroism are:

  • Abagail Adams, the first American First Lady to farm
  • Christine Moseley, founder and CEO of Full Harvest
  • Peggy Shriver, chief development officer of Rise Against Hunger
  • Johanna Sylvester and Jessi Greenlee, executive director and director of operations of Movement Foundation
  • and many others

In honor of both Captain Marvel and March’s designation as Women’s History Month, Dole salutes these past and present champions of nutrition, health and wellness whose accomplishments allow us to do the work we do today,” said Melanie Marcus, MA, RD, Dole’s nutrition and health communications manager.

Superheroes in training will be directed to nine Dole fruit and vegetable recipes selected by Marcus for specific nutrient and health benefits important to women. Dole will even bring Marvel into the produce aisle with limited-time, Captain Marvel-inspired DOLE Banana stickers and DOLE Pineapple hang tags featuring Captain Marvel, Nick Fury, Mar-Vell, Talos, and Goose the Cat. Shoppers can find them in U.S. and Canadian supermarkets starting the week of Feb. 25.
