    Green smoothies have def helped me stay on track! Since I moved out into my own place a year ago I have started making them an they have helped me to stick to my diet and not gain weight sitting behind a desk at work all day. Plus a great way to get all those veggies in without tasting them 😉

    Thank you Jen & Jadah! I feel like I know you guys personally. I’m so grateful for all you have done, not only effecting my life in a positive way but so many others as well. You are both amazing!

    I grew up in a household with 6 brothers. I’m the only girl and I’m the middle child. I didn’t realize how bad my eating habits were until I moved away to college. I ate like a man! Huge portions, processed, fast foods aka junk. It was bad. I felt bloated all the time, had a constant belly ache, and no energy. I wanted to make changes but it was hard to break habits going on 20 yrs! Green smoothies are the perfect simple yet effective change. I didn’t feel like I was being starved, like when I try dieting.
    Green smoothies have changed my life for the better! I feel energized and happy and no more bloating or pain. Thank you so much!

    I have been doing this challenge for almost a year now and I’m loving it. The first change this have done for me is that my energy level has sky rocket. Two year ago my hemoglobin count was a 5, I almost died. I was hospitalized and I was tired. I decided to change my eating habits. I research and came across this challenge and gave it a chance. I now eat my veggies without it being a smoothie. I drink three cup of smoothie a day. I cannot stay a day without drinking my smoothie. I decided to enter because Friday I went to the doctor and my hymoglobin count is now a 10. For months my count has been on a limbo. I was taking all these pills that was doing nothing for me. I’m now happy and much healthier.

    Thank you

    Following Jadah and Jen and Simple Green Smoothies has been, by far, the best decision I have made in a very, very long time! The difference having a support team behind me has made such a difference in my life! My eating habits were not good and joining their team has changed my life! I too love my Blendtec but unfortunately have the big one that is no way near travel worthy! I live in Texas and my mom is in Florida so when I go visit her I am without a blender to make my smoothies so thank you for this opportunity to win one! That would be so awesome! My mom is 78 and having health issues so my trips are getting more frequent and being able to blend for her too would be so great! It could only help her get healthier and keep me on track because the difference these wonderful shakes make in my daily life is unremarkable! Jen and Jadah THANK YOU so much for all you do for us that have been so BLESSED to have found you and continue to follow and share you great teachings! YOU RAWK! Also… Thank you Rawkstar Dan for this generous opportunity to take my healthy lifestyle mobile from Texas to Florida and Rawk my moms world!

    Green smoothies give me energy and make me crave healthier foods. The healthy food cravings led me to trying Fresh Start 21 Day Cleanse. I’m happier, healthier, and more fit- all resulting from drinking green smoothies!

    Green smoothies give me life, energy, and power. They round house kick my constant cravings for processed food and junk (pizza, cupcakes, candy, and french fries—my kryptonite) right out of existence.

    Drinking green smoothies has opened my eyes to what it means to eat healthy and take care of my body. I am finally giving my body the nutrients it craves and I can tell my body is satisfied. After drinking a smoothie, I find that I have more energy and feel better overall. It’s so easy, too! Finding new recipes has been a fun summer project that has kept me motivated to be healthy. I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog. It has given me so much helpful information to get me started in the green smoothie world!

    I started with green smoothies back in January 2014, as my first 30-day challenge. I lost 25 lbs just by switching out a meal with a smoothie, and I haven’t looked back. Adding in daily exercise I’ve lost at least another 15lbs and I’m so happy with how I’m feeling and looking!

    Green smoothies have given me the opportunity to try new fruits and vegetables that I wouldn’t have otherwise and helped lower my family’s cholesterol.

    Green smoothies give me the energy I need to get through the day. I feel healthier, and I’ve cut down to only one cup a coffee a day – no more 3pm coffee crashes!

    I would love to win the Blendtec – I need a new blender!
