A note from the writers:
Shauna Martin, CEO/Founder of Daily Greens
- At the young age of 33, I was diagnosed with breast cancer – only one year after my son was born. The multiple surgeries and chemotherapy left my body broken down and my immune system depleted. I knew something needed to change, so I began to research the powerful impact food has on our health. As a result I learned that not only could I heal my body from the after affects of my treatment, but I could also potentially prevent a recurrence of my breast cancer. Green juice quickly became the cornerstone of my new plant-based lifestyle!
Fast forward nine years, and I am completely recovered from my battle against breast cancer! I now feel healthier and more energized than ever before. My personal journey from disease to health has given me the passion to advocate for juicing greens as part of a long-term healthy lifestyle. It has also given me the wonderful and unexpected opportunity to write a book titled The Daily Greens™ 4-Day Cleanse, which will be released mid-March 2015. Through the Daily Greens™ blog, I hope to share ways you can also take control of your health through nutrition.
- As a Registered Dietician/Nutritionist in New York City and founder of Lauren Minchen Nutrition, I have a wide range of professional experience in nutrition-related diseases and conditions (e.g. eating disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, digestive diseases, hormonal disorders, menopause, dementia/Alzheimer’s, cancer, autoimmune diseases, obesity, sports nutrition, pre- and post-natal nutrition). Recently, I completed my Masters in Public Health, a degree that strengthened my research skills and expertise in the development and treatment of chronic diseases. My ultimate goal with my work, whether it be on an individual or corporate level, is to make health and balance achievable and sustainable for life. I hope through my collaboration with Daily Greens™ on this blog, I can share the many health benefits of juicing and raw foods, and provide you with the guidance and assistance you need to live healthy and well.

- I credit my reckless optimism and knowledge of all things sustainable to my extraordinary experience as 2011’s Top Finalist of Project Green Challenge, a month-long competition hosted by Teens Turning Green (TTG) that challenegse individuals to dive deeply into the environmental and societal impacts of our daily actions and habitual purchases. Since then, my focus has shifted towards food sustainability and its fascinating connection to a wide variety of global challenges – and solutions. I also have served on the Youth Advisory Board of TTG, the Sustainability Chairman of University of San Diego’s Be Blue Go Green team, and the Student Director of Communication and Outreach of UT Austin’s Office of Sustainability. Currently, I am working on my BA in Geography with an emphasis in Sustainability and BDP in Social Entrepreneurship and Non-Profits, while serving as Daily Greens™ Marketing Assistant. With the Daily Greens™ blog, I hope to share my favorite tips and tricks on living a conscious lifestyle and exemplify how we can all be the change!
