July 31, 2020 – National Avocado Day | National Get Gnarly Day
Dude, How Do You Get Gnarly?
Welcome to July 31st, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate a green superfood and getting gnarly . More after the break from Anna Devere.
While Ancient Aztecs knew the power of the mighty green avocado, it took a modern company to put this fruit on the map. Today we celebrate National Avocado Day thanks to two gals from California who saw the potential in this versatile wonder. Danika Brysha and Camille May founded their company Model Meals to deliver heart healthy fare and avocados fit the bill perfectly. The two even carry “purse avocados” for a convenient way to get a midday dose of healthy fats and vitamins. And if you love avocados you’re probably aware that they show up in way more than bowls of guacamole. On National Avocado Day add this creamy fruit to soups and smoothies and even cream pies for a rich taste that’s worth celebrating.
If you’ve been craving some adventure in your life then National Get Gnarly Day is your day to break free. Like the gnarly waves that surfers chase, getting gnarly is all about doing something over the top that sets your heart on fire. And if you need some inspiration think of Hulda Crooks, born in 1896, who at age 54 decided to take up mountain climbing. She was an avid runner, but never considered hiking or climbing, until her husband passed and a bout of pneumonia left her feeling weak. That didn’t keep her from scaling Mount Whitney at age 66. And another 23 ascents gave her the title of “Grandma Whitney.” Then at age 91, Hulda climbed Mount Fuji in Japan. Gnarly!
