Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2017

As you all know, Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. After being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33, our founder and CEO, Shauna Martin, started juicing green vegetables to help with recovery from chemotherapy and multiple surgeries. She is now a ferocious advocate for breast cancer issues and is devoted to sharing the life-restoring power of green juice with everyone. This October we are fundraising for Young Survival Coalition, an organization that provides support and resources to young women battling breast cancer. Let’s work together and make a difference so that no young women have to face breast cancer alone.
Just text DGPINK to 50555 to give $10 to Young Survival Coalition. For every $10 you give, we’ll match it!
For every heart-shaped pink $1 off coupon you redeem, Daily Greens will also donate $1 to Young Survival Coalition.

Race for the Cure 2017 and Texas Mamma Jamma Ride

We love that our CEO and founder, Shauna R. Martin was featured on this year’s Susan G. Komen Austin Race for the Cure poster. Shauna’s a breast cancer survivor of 12 years and this was her 12th consecutive year running. The Daily Greens team was in attendance too, handing out juices and cheering her, as well as all of the others, on.

Shauna is busy woman. The day before the Race for the Cure, Shauna also participated in the 9th Annual Mamma Jamma Ride as she does every year. The Texas Mamma Jamma Ride is dedicated to helping people in our local community facing breast cancer.

Introducing our new line- Just Veggies.

Introducing our new Just Veggies Line! A line of juices that are pure vegetables- perfect for those who want to target an area of your health, diet, or you just love the taste of freshly juiced vegetables.

Just Beets– is just that- beet juice (with a dash of cucumber and lime for the perfect taste). Long known in the medical world for its power to reduce high blood pressure, beet juice also has been proven to have more bio-accessible antioxidants than other vegetable juices, which aids in removing free-radicals from our system. Studies have shown that with the addition of one glass of beet juice a day you can raise the nitric oxide level in your blood which will lower blood pressure and also boost stamina and endurance. Beet juice can aid in preventing cancer and has been proven to reduce inflammation. Our delicious blend is packed with 4.5 pounds of produce to give you an optimal nutritious veggie drink.

Just Greens – is Daily Greens’ most tempting juice yet. Its main ingredient- lacinato kale or black kale- has a smooth, sweet taste that works well in a green juice. This type of kale is known to reduce high cholesterol and continues to surprise dieticians and researchers with its many health benefits. Its consumption may help prevent cancer, alleviate the symptoms of MS, and help fight macular degeneration. Our rich blend also contains cabbage, broccoli and a hint of lavender. This combination makes this juice an incredible source of Vitamin B, C and K. And, the most important part, no added sugar! We think it’s one of the best tasting green juices out there.

Just Carrots– We all know that carrot juice is good for us, and eating carrots makes us see in the dark, (or at least that is what Grandma says), but why? Carrots are high in beta carotene which converts to Vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is vital for our eye health; it aids in stopping inflammation in the body, and it improves the overall health of your skin. But carrots don’t just help you see better; they also aid in increasing your bile production which leads to speeding up your metabolism, aiding in weight loss. Carrots are loaded with Vitamin C, strengthening your immunity and overall health. Just Carrots has the subtle taste of lime, which makes our juice easy to drink and delicious.

Daily Greens (as always) uses only organic, raw, fair trade ingredients. Our goal is to provide you with the best options for your health and the tastiest juices around. Drink your Greens!

But have you ever thought of making your own juice at home? We want you to be as healthy as possible and a key ingredient in that is juicing. And of course, always eating organic!
Juicing at home can be quick and easy, with a little preparation.
When Shauna is back visiting her mother, she takes advantage of her mom’s green thumb and her immense garden. One of Shauna’s favorite ways to start the day is with her go-to Sunday morning green juice. You can grab all the ingredients from your garden like Shauna does when she is back home with her mom. (Or if your thumb isn’t green, a visit to your local grocers should do the trick!) And feel free to add different flavors with the seasons.

All you will need is –
1 cucumber
1-2 big handfuls of collard greens or kale leaves (or both!)
1 Handful of mint and
1 ½ cups of watermelon chunks
Combine all in your juicer and enjoy!

Keep the green, organic, vegan theme going at lunch and make Shauna’s favorite salad.

All you will need is –
1 head butter lettuce, torn and chopped
1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
2 or 3 green onions, thinly sliced
4-5 ripe strawberries, sliced
1 ripe avocado, diced
1 tbsp. whole grain mustard
1 tbsp. raw apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp. raw agave nectar
2 tbsp. extra- virgin olive oil
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Combine butter lettuce, cucumber, and green onion in salad bowl and toss. Make the dressing by whisking the vinegar, mustard, olive oil, agave, salt and pepper together. Sprinkle greens with salt, pour over top and gently toss.  Add strawberries and avocados on top and serve immediately.

Here’s to your health!

This result supports what we already knew…that you can taste the difference and Organic just tastes great! We want you to start making the Organic choice for yourself, and not just because our juices won the taste challenge. The Organic choice ties in with our commitment to you – we want you to be healthy, always, and we want to leave the smallest footprint on the environment. By choosing Organic you are supporting sustainable, local farmers and helping to make a difference for our organic agriculture community.
It’s not just what we think; the research is out there too. Organic tastes great, yes, but it’s also better for you and our environment. https://drinkdailygreens.com/blog/2017/06/12/daily-greens-june-newsletter/

Our featured juice- RENEW.

This month’s featured juice is RENEW. This juice not only tastes refreshing it’s also one of our most hydrating juices. The added Himalayan salt creates an electrolyte balance in the body as well as increasing water absorption abilities. The ingredients of celery, dandelions greens, pineapple all infused with lime and watermelon juice (with a hint of spearmint) leads to a super tasty, hydrating juice.

We are big fans of watermelon here at Daily Greens and not just because of its incredible taste. Studies have revealed that watermelon contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, and a cancer-fighting agent. Watermelon also contains L-citrulline, an amino acid that aids in muscle repair and cucurbitacin E, a triterpenoid, which blocks the activity of the pain and inflammation, making RENEW an excellent post-workout recovery juice.

Celery is also a beneficial component of RENEW. It’s a good source of antioxidants and beneficial enzymes. High in vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, folate, and Vitamin B, celery makes for one of the healthiest ingredients we can use in our juices. By providing a raw dietary fiber that boosts digestion and weight loss, it acts as a diuretic and reduces bloating.  And to top all that off, it also is a HUGE help after a work out because of its high percentage of electrolytes which prevent dehydration.

Another beneficial ingredient (and one that you might find surprising!) are dandelion greens. These greens are probably one our best sources of iron, containing twice as much iron as spinach. They have large doses of Vitamin E and riboflavin. And, if your post work-out drink could not get any better, dandelion greens have been shown to inhibit interleukins and other immune molecules which trigger inflammation.

As always, all of our ingredients are certified organic and are NON-GMO, maintaining our commitment to you to make the healthiest product we can. But the best part about RENEW is that it tastes fantastic. With a hint of lime and pineapple making it truly sublime. It is one of our best sellers and one that you can drink after your workout and the rest of the day too.

Organic Tastes Great! We here at Daily Greens know that organically grown fruits and vegetables taste better thantraditionally grown food. But how do we know? First, because it just tastes better! And second, we have done our research-

*Did you know that a study was done by the BJN (British Journal of Nutrition) that revealed that organic foods have higher levels of antioxidants?  Higher levels of antioxidants affect a food’s organoleptic qualities – taste, aroma, and mouthfeel. Which means they taste better! And, since no pesticides are used, organic fruits and vegetables are under constant attack from bugs and blights of all kinds. This sounds like a bad thing, but it helps because when they are under attack, they ramp up production of their antioxidants, flavonoids, and phytochemicals. Resulting in a more intense flavor in the plant. In 2013, The National Restaurant Association also conducted a taste test, and survey and their findings support the idea that organic food just tastes better.

*If you still need more convincing on why to buy organic, consider this- it is good for the planet. Organic farming, by definition, doesn’t use harmful chemicals and fertilizers that contaminate rain and groundwater. Organic farming maintains healthy, fertile topsoil rich with biological matter, which limits erosion. And by purchasing organically grown products, you help organic farmers, and these guys need all the help they can get. Our dollars are sometimes more important than our vote, and if you choose to buy organic, you will support your local organic farmers.

So, organic tastes great, it’s better for you, and it helps out the farmers and our planet. Still not convinced – why don’t you try your own taste test? Buy one of each of your favorite fruit and vegetable, one organic and the other non-organic, and see for yourself!

We here at Daily Greens believe it and stand by it – that is why all the ingredients in our juices are 100% organic. Even down to the juice of the limes. It’s our commitment to you and ourselves. We want you to not only have the healthiest juice you can, but we want it the be the best tasting one!

Our Fearless Leader–Shauna Martin– Rides over 200 miles to raise money and awareness for the Young Survivors Coalition(YSC) in the Tour de Pink.

The Tour de Pink.

In April 2017, the founder and CEO of Daily Greens, Shauna Martin, along with her sister, Tamara, cycled over 200 miles from Orlando, FL to Palm Beach, FL. Both Shauna and her sister were diagnosed with Breast Cancer over twelve years ago, just three weeks apart. Shauna was 33 and her sister only 31. For two years, both women underwent treatment and eventually, double mastectomies. Neither of them will ever forget the battle they went through, and they know intimately how hard young women must fight today to win back their lives. The YSC South Florida Ride raises money and awareness for the Young Survivor Coalition, the premier organization providing supportive services and education resources for young women affected by breast cancer. Shauna rode too because YSC was there for her and her sister when they both needed it.

Since the moment she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Shauna has made it her mission to raise money for other young women battling breast cancer. Shauna also wants to increase awareness about her approach to living an organically enriched life which not only makes her feel better, but it also helps prevent cancer. (Shauna and her sister both have been cancer free since their treatment.) It was this mission that served as the inspiration to found Daily Greens. Not only is Daily Greens a sponsor of the Tour de Pink, but it also supports the YSC through an October campaign to raise awareness about the YSC’s organization and get Daily Green drinkers involved by donating matching amounts from coupons used by them to purchase a delicious Daily Greens juice.

When Shauna cycles (she rides a custom pink triathlon bike from http://www.ybsbikes.com/) she drinks a Daily Greens juice before, during, or after each ride.  Daily Greens’ cold-pressed juices are high in vital electrolytes that keep cyclists hydrated while riding. Her personal favorite to drink is RENEW.
Daily Greens also sponsored the ride and provided juice to each rider of the Tour de Pink, Florida. For more about our giving programs see- https://drinkdailygreens.com/we-give-back


Shauna’s choice when she rides her bike is our June feature juice- RENEW. Renew is perfect for before, during or after your workout and it’s also the perfect juice for during a ride. RENEW is hydrating and restorative. RENEW is infused with watermelon juice and it’s packed with celery, spinach, pineapple, lime, spearmint, dandelion greens and a touch of Himalayan Pink Salt. By drinking it, you can restore your electrolytes and increase your energy levels. And it tastes delicious.

MEET ELEVATE!

The perfect juice to start your cleanse or the perfect juice to try to help you get started drinking your daily greens.

Elevate is a great beginner juice, it tastes smooth – packed with cucumber, spinach, and watercress — with a splash of lime, sweet pear, and a lovely vanilla finish, it’s the juice that will win you over.

Its organic ingredients not only taste delicious together but they also all offer health benefits to your body. It’s the perfect way to get your daily greens to go!

1- Spinach (Yes, it’s the healthiest thing you can put in your body!) Loaded with potassium and magnesium, vitamins K, A, B2, B6, E, Calcium, and Folate. Spinach truly is a superfood.

2- Cucumber (Who knew that it can aid with hydration and that it’s loaded with potassium?) It also has fisetin which helps protect against inflammation. Flavonoids help relieve pain and cucumbers contain loads of fiber, which we all know keeps us regular!

3- Watercress (Yes, the plate garnish.) Formally, a staple of the diet of a Roman soldier. It is super rich in dietary nitrates and these aid with lowering blood pressure as well as maintaining your cardiovascular health.

4- Pears (They don’t just taste good.) Low in sugar and high in fiber, these organic pears are loaded with antioxidants and potassium.

5- Limes (Not just for flavor.) Lime juice has a high percentage of vitamin C; it’s high in antioxidants and full of flavonoids (limonin glucoside) which help detoxify the body. And lime juice makes everything taste great.

All of these ingredients (4.5 lbs in total!) are cold pressed together in one small 12 oz. Daily Greens to go bottle. We stand by our pledge that organic tastes better. There is no excuse not to drink your greens.

Elevate is also an integral part of our 4-day organic juice cleanse programs. You can download the menu here … to get started.
