    I have been making green smoothies for about a year now. Not only do I love them, but my kids do as well! My 2 and 4 year old kids think they are getting a treat and I smile with pride that I am able to get some greens into their very picky diet!!! The 30 day challenge has been great to get some fantastic smoothie recipes. My family has highly enjoyed it 🙂

    I took my first simple green smoothie challenge some time ago. Prior to that first challenge I truly tried to eat well but eating greens daily was something I struggled with (other veggies weren’t such a struggle). After my (1st) challenge ended I continued having a green smoothie daily, more often than not substituting it for my regular breakfast of yogurt & granola. Now, a green smoothie is always my breakfast and a while ago I began incorporating two greens into each one. (I still participate in challenges as I tend to fall into ruts & I like the reminders of all the different flavor combinations.) Additionally, I’ve lost 15 lbs. since my first challenge; definitely a welcome bonus! I’m so grateful to/for the challenges for both helping me lose weight without even trying and, especially for getting greens consistently in my diet. Thanks so much, Jadah and Jen!!

    I started doing green smoothies because my friend. I’ve always had rebellious skin and her skin just seemed to glow! She told me about them and this website. I’ve loved all the recipes I’ve tried so far. My skin is clearer and people tell me it’s brighter. My digesting has improved. I don’t crave sugar or salt. I’ve lost some weight but my measurements have changed a lot. I’ve been eating healthy and exercising a while but this was the extra boost I needed to make my outside look like my inside feels.

    I used to cry when I would go to my wardrobe. Why? Because I tried on sizes that would have fit me a few months or year earlier only to find they didn’t fit. Don’t even get me started on jeans!

    I thought my eating habits weren’t too bad but my waist told me otherwise as it kept growing out and the numbers on the scale slowly kept going up.

    I had to do something. But what? All the other diets I had tried didn’t work, we have all been there. I always felt like I was starving or depriving myself. And if I did lose weight it was temporary. Then I would end up gaining back MORE than I weighed before I started the diet!

    November last year someone suggested to my hubby & I ‘Why not try a cleanse?’. Onto Google I jumped and I found Simply Green Smoothie 21-Day Cleanse. Since Nov 25th 2013 my hubby & I have not looked back, clean eating, smoothie challenges, I’m 15kg down, my hubby 10kg down, feeling fresh and happy with tons of energy. Oh I’m fitting into my jeans again!

    Life changing! Thank you Simply Green Smoothies!!!

    I had never tried green smoothies until the 30 day challenge and they have changed my life. I have had a wart on my finger for almost a year even after many attempts and many dollars spent on cures. After starting the green smoothies the wart has disappeared and also the floaters I have before my eye shaved decreased. Green smoothies have encouraged me to eat clean. I now find myself craving healthy foods. I was in the produce section I spied a display of wavy potato chips which was a weakness for me, but I was able to look at them and question them why they were in the produce section. Needless to say they were without reply so I strolled away with cart laden with baby kale and baby spinach, pineapple, raspberries,bananas, red cabbage ready to make my healing green smoothie. I’ve been saved, hallelujah green smoothies have made a believer out of me!

    I joined the 30 day challenge before it started and decided to start doing it before this one started. It’s really been great. There were a couple times when I did it on my own and skipped a day and boy could I tell a difference. The days I didn’t do it my energy was low and I was more tempted to snack on non healthy food. Just one drink a day really helped me out. It gives me tons of energy and helps me watch what I eat throughout the day. When I start off with one for breakfast it really motivates me to eat healthy throughout the day. My husband even enjoys them and loves that he can grab one and go in the morning. I’m also loving all the different recipes, but we do really love the beginners luck recipe. Thank you for some amazing recipes and this challenge.

    how green smoothies have changed my life.. they helped mw become healthy! last summer i developed restrictive eating habits, causing me to feel weak and tired constantly. when i began my recovery and eating more healthy fats and proteins, i made green smoothies with protein powders, nut butters, coconut oil, seeds and etc to help me gain weight and reach a healthy weight. they didn’t make me feel terribly guilty and i felt ok eating more calories through green smoothies. now that i am weight restored i am still hooked on green smoothies! my dad and i have one everyday! i make your “beginner’s luck” & “chocolate cherry” at least once a week! thank you jen and jadah for providing delicious green smoothie recipes and helping me to become the best me. 🙂 <3

    Before I participated in the Green Smoothie Challenge last year, I didn’t eat breakfast. I would wake up, run out the door with my coffee and then by 10am I would hit a wall, suffering from low energy and feeling down right cruddy. When I started drinking green smoothies for breakfast, I realized how much more energy I had in the morning, and then I would start craving the smoothies more than coffee, which I never thought was possible. Thank you Green Smoothie Challenge for teaching me the importance of starting off the day with a healthy kick!
