    oooohhhh these wonderful green smoothies. For the last eight years I have been fighting skin problems until a beautician suggested to try green smoothies. It was a revelation. I am not a fan of making salads but with the green smoothies I get my greens in and it is fun!!! Thank you for your great, inspiring website.

    I just went to beach for a weeks vacation & took my NutriBullit with me. I drank a smoothie every morning! That and lots of walks on beach kept me feeling fine in spite of all the eating out – and I was encouraged to make better choices when I did!

    I started making green smoothies back in January after stumbling upon your website, and I have to say that I’m really glad I did. I eat one at least six days of the week, and I don’t feel right without one. It’s how I start my day. Green smoothies have gotten me to use and eat more vegetables every week. Once my CSA started in June, I really started being creative. I’ve blended beet greens, cabbage, raddish greens, summer squash, along with the typical greens/fruits. This means more nutrients for me and less waste going into the garbage. I already burned through one blender in the last six months, so it would great to get a blender with an eight-year warranty. That would mean many more years of green smoothies ahead!

    My first green smoothie challenge was a way to incorporate greens into my diet. This current challenge is helping me eat healthy during my martial arts training. Healthy and tasty!!!

    Green smoothies have really exceeded my expectations. I started the 30-Day Challenge because I had been trying to be more conscious about how I nourish myself and my family and eat real, nutrient-dense food. Within a few days I noticed I was getting less tired in the afternoons, when I would usually crash. About a week in I noticed my nails were growing faster and were much stronger. About two weeks in, I went to get a hair cut and the hairdresser said to me on her own, “Have you changed your diet at all? Your hair seems to be shinier and thicker since you were last here.” That same day a neighbor told me my skin seemed to have a healthy new glow, and whatever I was doing, not to stop. I’m now 3 weeks in and have no intention of stopping when the 30 days are up! Thank you so much!

    Simple Green Smoothies came into my life one fine day while I was looking up ways on Pinterest to increase my fruit and veggie intake. Over the past year, I had managed to make it a habit to exercise regularly and watch what I what ate. As a whole, I was able to lose 50lbs!! Unfortunately, I fogot to factor in some very important pieces to healthy living: my fruits and veggies!! So on my quest for better living, I came across the 30 Day Challenge. Excited, and a bit nervous, I began to drink my green smoothies. I honestly never thought that I would enjoy drinking something that my friend has kindly referred to as swamp water, goo, and (my favorite) that slime they throw at people on Nickelodeon

    I am really enjoying the green smoothies and how they make me feel kind of like a “rawkstar”. They have really made it easy for me to transition away from coffee, I don’t even crave it anymore. We are using a mini blender to make smoothies for a family of 3 so this blender would be welcomed into our home with open arms!! Thanks for sharing this lifestyle : )

    I have had colon issues off and on for years. This year I dragged our vitamix out of the cupboards and began making smoothies. I have felt great! Even the grandkids have enjoyed a smoothie at Grammy’s. Little did they realize all the spinach they were drinking!

    I started blending last year and it has been one of the best things that I could have possible started. I have so much energy and such an easy way to have meals on the go. I am now trying to get my family and friends to start and the 30 day challenge is an excellent way to introduce them to green smoothies!

    I LOVE green smoothies! but what I love the most is that my whole family loves them too. Including my sugar addicted husband who is so amazed that something so sweet and good doesn’t require extra sugar. My kids love their “green machine” every day too. It is a family thing. Sometimes we have “liquid salad” as a beverage at dinner time (I add whatever I have in the fridge). It is a great way to get some leafy greens into my 2yo’s diet.

    Green smoothies has helped me to get more nutritional foods and fruits to blend better to make it more healthier for me to drink. It helps me to take in more fruits and vegetables than just eating whole fruits and vegetables and plus my husband enjoys when I make more healthier smoothies for us. I have started trying to eat more healthier because my brother had passed away last month from cancer and when he had found out he was trying to do things to help his body, but was to late. So, now I am trying to do preventive measures for our life and bodies. Thanks!

    Its simple and easy. Which in this hectic day and age, when is the last time you were able to say that about something. Your green smoothies and helpful hints take the guess work out of creating healthy smoothies that actually taste good. I’m a now a firm believer in the green smoothie revolution and your avid follower. Thanks for keeping it simple, healthy and delicious.

    I am a cancer survivor and diet and exercise were encouraged for my continued good health. Coming across the Simple Green Smoothie site, hase really encouraged me to do just that. I am doing the July challenge and find that Green Smoothies are simple, easy to make and they really don’t taste bad. I feel good about having my leafy greens everyday, so good in fact, that I walk daily and at least 3 days a week, I max out my 10,000 steps. The Beginner’s Luck Smoothie is sooo good, but I also like receiving the different recipes weekly. Keep’em comin!!!

    I love my green smoothies! The 21-day challenge is a great way to jump start getting into it. I have beat cancer three times in three years. I am recovering from two- stem cell transplants in the past year. This is a great way for me to get in lots of fruits and veggies when I just don’t have a great appetite! I love them, well most of them 😉
