There’s this big, glorious park in the center of Salt Lake City. It’s official name is “Liberty Park” but I call it the Sesame Street Park because it has the same vibe as the TV neighborhood. People out and about. Rollerblading, running, bike riding, picnicking, selling handcrafted wares, dred-headed hippies dancing ’round drum circles, ferris wheel and merry go’ round tinkling with music while little kids lick snowcones and moms chase after barefooted toddlers in swimgear and flip flops. I love this park. Love the feel and the buzz of it. Love sharing it with my kids. Love getting out under the sunshine and feeling connected to my community. We don’t do things like that enough, do we? Always so go-go-go and busy-busy, taking time to attend gatherings is something we too often table, missing the sweetness of celebration that happens when you get outside, get out of the box and get around your fellow humans.

You feel the same way? Well, hello soul sister. So glad to meet you.

And also, here’s a chance for the both of us to seize these final sweet moments of summer. It’s a free community event put on by DOLE called the “Get Up and Grow” Tour, and I’ve gotta tell you, this is one event you do not want to miss.

WHAT IS THE GET UP AND GROW TOUR?

It’s an 11,700-mile, 115-day journey organized by the Dole Food Company and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze to give North Americans a number of tangible ways to make 2015 their healthiest and happiest summer EVER! We are directly challenging local residents to eat better this summer to receive some exciting health and wellness rewards. We’ll ultimately be stopping at 480 supermarkets and special events throughout the U.S. and Canada through September.

The Tour is part of Dole’s year-long “Get Up and Grow!” initiative dedicated to showing that a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables can be the pathway to a happier, healthier world. Another highlight is the Get Up and Grow Healthy Living Pledge, an interactive, customizable commitment to a healthier diet and lifestyle.

So easy to make and so fun to enjoy, here’s how to make Pineapple-Avocado Toast. Ideal for breakfast, awesome for snacktime, you’ve really gotta try this nosh. Though the basic recipe is awesome, I LOVE mixing in some diced jalapenos and chopped mint or basil for extra zestiness.
