    Green Smoothies have made eating healthy and clean very convenient and easy. I just put all my ingredients in a Mason jar and the next morning, I can blend them while I am getting dressed.

    I am 29 years old and have recently started having green smoothies for breakfast. I used to not eat anything or have sugary cereal for breakfast. I have wanted to find an easy way to add fruits and vegetables into my diet, and green smoothies have allowed me to do just that. Not only am I eating healthier, but it’s easier than I thought it was going to be. I am so happy I have started eating healthier and am excited to continue this trend. I am definitely now addicted to green smoothies. I believe it has helped save money on the weekly grocery bill.

    I joined Green Smoothie two years ago when I was turning 60. I had juust recovered from my second neck surgery and looked in the mirror and said “Is this the best I will ever feel again?” I saw the green smoothie on someone’s IG and said “What the heck – nothing to lose.”. Well I was wrong! Finally lost 10 of the 15 lbs I had been trying to lose for 15 years and they have stayed off. Joining the Green Smoothie made me more aware of my eating choices. I started to feel good enough to start exercising again and even now when I seriously stay on course I can even do my kickboxing video three times a week. My younger friends all tell me how great I look as my skin too has seriously improved and of course I attribute to my green smoothie. They sometimes laugh, but wait til the my age I say! Green Smoothie is not a miracle worker but it helps me keep my head straight as far as my nutrition is concerned and since I have some additional autoimmune issues it is a miracle to me that I feel so well. Yes I say it because Green Smoothie got me going in the right direction. Thank you. Oh and I would love the Blendtec but I will rawk on regardless!

    I started drinking green smoothies when I signed up for the 30 day challenge in May. By the time the July Challenge rolled around, I was already hooked! I have them for breakfast right after my morning workout and it makes me feel so… virtuous! But also healthy and energized. Now, if I could just convince my husband to try it!

    For the last three months I have been drinking green smoothies for breakfast. I absolutely LOVE the recipes and cannot start my day without one.

    Ever since starting the 30-day challenge, I have looked forward to waking up in the morning to try each new smoothie, and have even started doing some experimenting with the recipes. You guys have made it easy for me to live the healthy lifestyle I’ve always dreamed of but never thought I could achieve, being such a sweet lover/veggie hater. I am able to “hide” the veggies in these smoothies while I satisfy my sweet cravings. I add more and more spinach & kale as I get used to the taste; I notice my energy lasting and my skin glowing!

    I purchased a few mason jars, plastic caps, stainless steel straws & the “ecojarz” lid to make my daily smoothie drinking more convenient AND stylish. I am a teacher and my students are eager to hear about my smoothie recipe everyday in summer school and I’ve even been able to encourage them to start healthy eating (and smoothie drinking of course)! One of them shared with me that her and her mom signed up for the challenge. I am so proud of the movement you have created! Thank you!

    Green smoothies have helped me stay healthy and on track with my fitness routine. My fruit intake has increased, dramatically, and I feel as though I have more energy.

    I’m so grateful for finding you site and making green smoothies a part of my daily life. My skin tone and texture has improved, I’ve lost weight, and I have more energy. I feel like my body is healing itself. smoothies rawk!

    I’ve been trying my hand at green smoothies for a month or so and this challange has helped me to be much more consistant and adventurous. I have not lost weight yet but I have increased my fruit and veg intake by ALOT…smoothies have even motivated me to be intentional about ensuring I have one green veggie on my plate at lunch (EVEN AT WORK!)

    I use the blender at work and usually share my extra with a co-worker if they’re not too frightened and it’s opened up conversations and made some people curious/interested in jumping over to the GREEN side 🙂

    I can attest that the best physical response I’ve had is better digestion. Yay teamGreen!!!

    Green Smoothies have changed our lives. My husband, er, I mean kids, refuse to eat vegetables. I started making the smoothies with fruits and spinach/kale and they LOVE them. My husband now makes his own green smoothies in the morning. I feel much better knowing my family is getting some greens in their diet. and feel better that I don’t need to force them to eat them anymore.

    I like starting my day with a green smoothie because it sets a healthy tone for my day’s eating habits. I feel completely nourished after drinking one, so it helps to prevent cravings of not-so-healthy foods. I always feel better about myself when I know I have consumed my daily greens!

    Making and sipping my green smoothies is my “me time”. It’s a time for healing, being mindful, and zen. It’s how I start my days, on a good note, and fuels my body for the hours ahead. At night I think about which smoothie I am going to prepare in the morning. I look forward to waking up everyday knowing I’ll have a few minutes of stress free deliciousness! Thank you for spreading the joy!

    This is my 1st time signing up for the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge. I signed up weeks before the start and both of you are so great. I love the fact that you prepared us in advance (just what I needed) & even gave us the shopping list. I have to say the taste of these smoothies are great, I have my whole family trying them! I love the verity and now when I come home from work instead of craving something bad for me my body is now craving one of your smoothies. The best!! Thank you

    Love finding new ways to get greens into my diet and into my daughters diet. We often have our smoothie snack together. It’s great?

    I love that I can get more fruits and veggies into my diet. I also love that there are two servings in every recipe so I can take one to go when I’m running a little late!

    Thank you for everything! Your website is amazing, and truly has been life changing for me and my husband. We do what we can, eating healthy dinners, snacks, and the occasional juicing but making your smoothies has been so drastically different than anything I’ve tried while riding my “healthy bandwagon.” You’ve made it so easy to follow with shopping lists & alternative substitutions that a smoothie dummy (me) can follow. My husband has a “sugar problem” as I’d like to call it. Soda’s, unnatural fruit juices, and candy were the norm before he met me. At my behest he finally went to see a doctor for a physical and came to find he was pre-diabetic! It was a huge wake-up call for us both (I did everything I could to hold back the “I told you so wife-face.”) In any case, finding your recipes, reading your blog, and drinking your smoothies for the past 15 days has been fun, delicious, and truly what the doctor ordered for me and my husband. I have tried every single recipe and have some favorites that I will continue to challenge myself (outside of the 21 day challenge) to make green smoothies a regular part of our healthy lifestyle! Thanks again for taking the time to make our lives better. Love, Dina
