    I love Green Smoothies!
    I had a stroke almost 2 years ago, I have been working very hard to gain mobility to my right side and get the best nutrition possible. since I started the 30 day challenge I feel much better physically & mentally! I am determined to have my Green Smoothie everyday I am really giving my 30 year old Oster blender a workout. I am worried it is going to give out in the middle of the 30 day challange. I am on a fixed income and i will not be able to run out and buy a new blender that will give me a smoothie drink. I introduced my sister to these Green Smoothies, she likes them an is watching me get healthier and lose a bunch of weight. Thank You, I could use a new beautiful blender and some recipes for Goji Berries.

    This is a great way to supply your body with nutrients. I have replaced my lunch at work with a green smoothie! I also add a raw vegetable and carb so as not to feel deprived.

    The green smoothie challenge is an absolutely amazing idea and I thank you both for introducing this to us. This challenge has personally helped me intake more veggies and fruits in my diet plus it’s an healthy alternative to many snaking options that we tend to eat. Overall it has helped me eat more healthier.

    Simple Green Smoothies has been a life charger for me. I have entered into a transformation of becoming more health conscious. This transformation is emotional, psychological and physical.

    Oh my gosh! I so agree with you. My skin has definitely improved and I have lost weight which I’m not sure is a good thing since I was 105 lbs and went down to 101lbs…HOWEVER! I have more energy to push through my workouts and I actually stopped having the urge to take my daily naps which is great(:

    I started drinking green smoothies in an effort to loose my baby weight. I drink one every morning and sometimes for lunch. It helps me eat healthier and I make better food choices throughout the day when I start with a green smoothie. Thank you for all of the amazing recipes and encouragement.

    Wow , what a vitamin bomb! My husband and I have started the 30 day smoothie challenge on June 30th( it was a Monday and we could not wait till July 1st) We both feel so great and have so much energy all morning! Our 11 yo daughter was very very apprehensive and she fought it tooth and nail to try. But when she finally tasted a shot glass of spinach, banana, mango and orange smoothie…. she actually could not hold back a smile and said: “that was actually not bad”… I will drink only that one! Convinced!!!! Great smoothies! we will go on!

    Throughout my pregnancy, I found it hard to eat green vegetables, until I found green smoothies! I am having so much fun trying so many different fruit and veggie pairings and discovering the benefits of mixers like coconut water and almond milk. I am finding myself more energized and happy with each smoothie. And the best part is my picky 3 year old loves making them with me and getting the nutrition from foods she wasn’t really open to eating before. Thank you for your site!

    My favorite part is how it helps me get my kids to ‘eat’ green veggies. They are really pretty healthy but green veggies are tough. So when they are so excited to have a green smoothie every day I just smile and say of course!!!

    I have gone through some catastrophic Life & Health challenges, weight gain, and on the verge of becoming diabetic. Just started a demanding new job and I’m always on the go. Green Smoothies have helped improve my outlook on Life & my health as it provides me with a sense that this is something I can control & its something good for my body as I physically & emotionally heal from Life’s scars. At work everyone has become very curious of the green morning jar on my desk that they have inquired & are trying some of my recipes. I think I may have some converts. 🙂 Green Smoothies are good for the soul.

    Green Smoothies have changed my life, before them, I didn’t know how to eat properly, once I started improving my eating habits, I started to incorporate Green Smoothies and found this awesome website. It all started last year when I signed up for the 30day Day Green Smoothie challenge and I really prepared myself for it. I used to wake up at 4am to go to University, blended my green smoothie and GO…BEST FEELING EVER! I had an incredibly energy and I was already feeling my best, It is so, that people started asking me what was I doing, so I started posting your greensmoothies on my IG and FB and telling my friends about Jen, Jadah and Simple Green Smoothies, and actually started to motivate them to be healthier, to get more greens into their diets, to be happier!!.. Not only green smoothies have helped me with my health and my physics, but also reading this two girls made my day. I love the energy you guys put into this, Thank you so much for motivating me to be better everyday!

    I’m absolutely terrible at getting a real breakfast at the beginning of my day. This is such a simple way to start the day and I get all the way to lunch and am no longer hungry. What’s more is that I used to struggle with getting all of the necessary fiber and potassium but I’m already well on my way but 8am!

    Let me start by saying…I Love Green Smoothies!!! My husband and I started a journey to eat and live healthier lives. We exercise daily and have our Green Smoothie. We are trying to get away from artificial foods and foods with a lot of preservatives. The Green Smoothies have been very tasty and give us lots of energy.

    Im 18 and in the past four years I have encountered a lot of difficulties involving my health. Ive been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, gluten intolerance, as well as something called idiopathic inter-craneal hypertension ( something that if my weight goes up by even 10 pounds i could lose (worst case senario) lose my eyesight.) Green Smoothies were probably the greatest discovery i’ve had in my journey to stay healthy, feel good, and keep my illnesses at bay! They helped me keep my weight down, and they have made the pain i am in so much less from fibromyalgia, and they don’t need to have gluten or dairy! (plus they are so delicious!!) I found the Simple Green Smoothie instagram page which got me into making them and gave me some of the best tasting and easiest green smoothie recipes i have ever tried!

    I love green smoothies. I’ve started having one each morning with greens, other veggies and fruits and I don’t get hungry before lunch anymore, don’t get those dragging feelings from eating sugary cereals, and I’m losing weight!!! What’s not to love?!?
