Do you get green with envy when you see pictures of other people’s magical green smoothies? Not all of us have the leprechaun touch for fruits and veggies. Most of us know, however, that it does a body well to consume raw produce yet only a small percentage of people even eat them every day. Hmm but how can you consume a bunch for optimal daily health on those days when you can’t get it together?
Daily Greens organic & cold pressed juices seeks to help Americans infuse their lives with nutrition. Dark leafy greens are full of vitamins and minerals our body needs. Founder, Shauna Martin, turned to juicing in her personal life for a more serious reason than just well being maintenance. Diagnosed with breast cancer at the early age of 33, Shauna was determined to get back to health. She picked up a regime of daily juicing and once she completely recovered from breast cancer, she wanted to share her good habit with her social sphere. Her meat lovin’ friends and family, however, couldn’t wrap their minds or mouths around the idea of the very green smoothie. She experimented and came up with the original Daily Greens drink, Vitality, which became a hit to the Austin crowd before it spread past Texas.
It’s quite easy feelin’ green
There are 6 different types of core Daily Green. We were given 2 different samples of the core Daily Greens to experiment on our own taste buds.
Renew was packed to the max with greens and features mint, dandelion greens and Himalayan pink salt. Elevate caters more to those who maybe think Green Smoothies taste a little tooooo green. With fancy Madagascar vanilla and pear, this Daily Green mixes it up and its juicy sweet touch makes it more palpable to non green people. All core Daily Greens are 1 serving bottles and relatively low in calories.
Daily Greens also offer 3 different Chia-Infused greens (high in omega-3, 2x more protein and 5x more calcium) and 3 different Hemp Milks for plant based protein (high omega 3 and 6). We would love to try the Replenish (includes cocoa)! A bonus is the Half Pint for your kids to drink, too!
Shauna isn’t afraid for you to venture on your own green journey as well. Her book, prefwell by Mayim Bialik (of Blossom and Big Bang Theory fame), gives guidance on how to greenify on your own, including how to prep for a cleanse and what light foods to eat after. The book also displays clean and vibrant images of all the delicious juice creations.
EXTRA BONUS!! Shauna is touring Chicago to share the news of her new Daily Greens: 4-Day Cleanse book that details her story and includes raw foods, juice and smoothie recipes for a health-focused cleanse. She’ll be signing books and sampling juices at the Lincoln Park Whole Foods August 3and the Streeterville Whole Foods location between 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. August 4.
