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!

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.
