About Captain Marvel:
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
Released in theaters March 8th, Captain Marvel is the first female superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to headline her own film! You know we are big Marvel fans, so I was especially pumped for this new film starring Brie Larson. I can now say with certainty that Captain Marvel is my favorite female superhero! Check out my no-spoiler review here!
Superhero Women Health Tips
Powering the Hero Within
Break the Fast. Get your metabolism going in the morning by eating a healthy breakfast with a mix of protein and fiber such as low-fat yogurt and fruit or an egg-white omelet with veggies. DOLE®’s Coconut Acai Bowl delivers 10 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber!
Keep Hydrated. Drink water and lots of it. Water helps manage hunger, prevents fatigue and keeps skin hydrated and looking fresh. Not a fan of water? Try adding sliced strawberries or pineapples to your water to keep flavors interesting throughout the day!
Get Moving. Aim for 30 minutes of exercise per day to boost your mood, strengthen your heart and bones, and keep energy levels high.
Pump Up the Iron. Boost iron stores by filling up on plant-based, iron-filled foods like lentils and almonds. Enhance your iron absorption by topping off an iron-fortified cereal with vitamin C-rich berries. With a little meal prep, Wake Up Oats are a tasty way to keep you full and energized.
Recharge. Set a sleep schedule and stick to a bedtime. Lack of sleep has been linked to several health problems including obesity.
When picking up ingredients for these amazing recipes, stop by the produce aisle to find 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.
