    Simple Green Smoothies has changed my life! I have tons of digestion issues. I had headaches every single day! My heart burn and acid reflux was horrible. Ever since I have done the 21 day challenge and then the daily green smoothies, my headaches are gone, heart burn gone , acid reflux gone, digestion issues are under control. Everyone is saying my skin is glowing, I feel energized. Even my husband who despises veggies is drinking the smoothies. My kids, 5 and 6 love spinach smoothies! We ALL have improved drastically because of this new lifestyle. Recently my Nutribullet broke so we have not had a smoothie in about 2 weeks…and we all can feel the difference in our systems. I have been researching the Blendtec, the Vitamix and the Breville Hemisphere. So hopefully I win this. 🙂 Even if I don’t, I already feel like I have won so much just by gaining this knowledge. So cheers to the winner…Thank you Jen and Jadah! 🙂

    Green smoothies are so amazing. I have prepped like a Rawkstar and made little zip lock bags w/ all the ingredients, my 13 year old will blend this with the liquid and we fill 4 mason jars w/ the yummy greenness. He has that for breakfast and leaves mine on the counter for when I leave to work. It has made morning getting ready routine so much faster/easier and yummier. The plus side is I have lost about 10 pounds. Not to mention that my 18 month old LOVES the green yummy bowls w/ fresh fruit. I have also made them into frozen popsicles for her. Thank you for all the amazing recipes.

    I’ve been drinking green smoothies most days since January 2 of this year. I love how easy it is to get a good nutritional burst of fruit and vegetables every day. We just had our annual physicals, and blood chem levels are back in good ranges!

    I have been drinking green smoothies from recipes on your site and I’ve never felt better! 2 green smoothies a day + a balanced diet of proteins, grains, dairy + daily exercise have helped me drop 15 pounds in only 4 weeks! I have also noticed an increase in my energy level and the random acne outbreaks I would get on my face have cleared up completely. I was always a picky eater but green smoothies have allowed me to form a better relationship with fruits and veggies and get more than the recommended amount of servings a day. The biggest benefit has been the complete reversal of digestive issues I have been dealing with given my newly discovered gluten sensitivity. I plan on incorporating green smoothies into my lifestyle from here on out and spreading the word about their benefits! Thank you for all of the information you provide and all of the yummy recipes you post!!!

    This is my 2nd SGS challenge.I have a green smoothie every morning for breakfast and sometimes even one for dinner. I’ve been having smoothies since Sept ’13 and my overall health has improved 110%. I am no longer pre-diabetic, my blood pressure is now normal, my cholesterol has gone from 288 to 169 and is improving, my PCOS is under control and my hormones are in balance. I can’t stress enough how this one simple change to my diet has rippled into every area of my health and well being. Simple Green Smoothies are extraordinary simple, delicious and good for you too! 😀

    Ever since I started drinking green smoothies I have felt better and healthier. Before I started drinking them I had poor health and all I ate was junk food. Now I have taken all the junk out of my diet and I am much better. The green smoothies have also made a huge impact on my father who is a diabetic. We are both truly grateful for the amazing benefits that green smoothies have to offer. I love them!!! I cannot imagine going a day or more without them 🙂

    I decided to sign up for the 30-Day Smoothie Challenge because of my Aunt. She is a cancer survivor and would share the posts on her Facebook page. She raved at how much it has helped her, how she has so much energy and feels so good everyday, intrigued I decided to try it out. Although its only day 15th of the July challenge I feel completley different. For once, I feel that I am putting good things in my body and not crap. I can tell a difference in my energy level and have given up my daily Starbucks run and goldcard perks for a healthier alternative 🙂

    Green Smoothies have offered recipes to help me stick with it when I get stuck in a rut of always making the same smoothie! I love the variations and it’s such a quick and easy and healthy way to start out my day!

    green smoothies have opened my life too eating and drinking healthy food that I always shunned. since joining the groupI have changed my way of thinking and eating. The other night I wanted something special to eat and I ate p and ate them like potato chips the other thing green smoothies have done for me is connected me with wonderful people who have suchinspiration to share. Thank you for the group and for allowing me to join.

    My children are drinking green smoothies everyday with me! I love that they are trying more fruits and vegetables that they otherwise refuse. I am building a healthy eating foundation with them and we have fun making them together.

    I’ve tried a few of the green smoothies and have really like them so far. I was afraid I wouldn’t like very many as I generally don’t like veggies and have to force myself to eat the little I do. But have been pleasantly surprised!

    I’ve recently been diagnosed with Crohn’s and have decided on a natural course of healing through diet and well-being, rather than pharmaceuticals. Since beginning my daily regimen of morning green smoothies, all natural vitamins and a dairy-free, gluten-free diet, I am almost completely healed of symptoms. That hasn’t happened in YEARS and I couldn’t have done it without your green smoothie guides. I can actually say that green smoothies have changed my life – literally! I’m healthy, happy, and ready to make this a lifestyle! Thank you both for what you do!

    We started the 30-day challenge six months ago, and we’ve hardly missed a day since! All of the recipes are delicious, and even when we need to improvise it comes out pretty good.. (my wife is a bit cautious when it comes to the blackberry-infused combinations, but once she gets past the color she’s fine.)

    I generally make extra so that I have enough to bring some to work; I’d much rather have a smoothie than a cup of office coffee!

    Keep ’em coming!
