    I have noticed that I no longer crave sugary foods or “unhealthy” foods. I have truly enjoyed having my skin back. I no longer have pimples or breakouts in the past 3 weeks. I have also enjoyed being “regular”. I am also learning how to incorporate more vegetables and fruits in my diet. Thanks so much.

    I love getting in some veggies first thing! It motivates me to keep eating them all day.

    Green smoothies give me so much more energy than carbs and keep those sugar cravings at bay!

    Adding green smoothies in my life has really jumpstarted me into a healthier way of living. I have noticed that my skin looks better and I don’t get sick as often. I feel better know that I am getting in healthy fruits and veggies without force feeding myself. I love drinking my tasty smoothies at work and has become a good conversation piece. My patients and co workers are always asking me what I’m drinking because to them it looks like green slush LOL! I tell them the ingredients and how tasty it is and they are intrigued by it. I even got some of them to start doing it themselves. Thanks for doing these smoothie challenges!

    Green smoothies have allowed me to realize that green foods aren’t scary and can be quite delicious. I just feel healthier after having one and that brings a smile to my face. 🙂

    I started the green smoothie challenge about halfway through my 2nd pregnancy. It has made a huge impact on my weight gain. Drinking one smoothie a day really cut most cravings I was having and help me to eliminate a good bit of the junk food I was eating. This helped me to maintain a healthy weight gain. Now that I’m a week post partum I’m hoping having one a day will help me loose the little extra weight I started off with. The recipes on these challenges have really opened up my eyes on the limitless ways to get my greens. Thanks a ton to the rawkstar team!

    Green Smoothies have really changed my life! I suffered from chronic migraines for many years and with the help of my Naturopath, she helped me understand that my migraines had a lot to do with my digestive system & she recommend I start making changes in my diet and incorporate green smoothies into my diet. It has been the best change I have made! I have not had a migraine for 2 years now and my lifestyle overall has improved. Now I feel healthier, with a lot more energy than before, and I don’t have migraines controlling my life.

    I thought life included bacon and eggs for breakfast, a nice lunch and a suitable dinner. Since joining this challenge, breakfast/dinner is no longer what society says it should be to me. My body has grown to love kale, spinach, cucumber and a tropical storm of fruits for breakfast. I crave meals of substance and I’m satisfied with a smoothie for dinner if I don’t have the time to prepare anything else. I love listening to my body, I love fruits and veggies… at least the blended kind. lol

    I would so love love to win this blender. I have been making green smoothies for my husband every morning for breakfast for a few weeks and already his blood work has improved. His bad cholesterol numbers have come down and the sugar in his blood. Thank you for offering a blender for give away!! :)))))

    As a school principal, breakfast consisted of coffee or nothing. I started following Simple Green Smoothies on Instagram and instantly became hooked. I have swayed too much from the original recipe but I now consume a smoothie for breakfast and sometimes even lunch. The tips for preparation and storage have been tremendously helpful. Since starting this, I can tell when my body has not had it’s green smoothie.
    Thanks for this.

    The 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge is changing my life. Our 10-year-old son and I have a new morning routine: We get up, fix our green smoothie recipe du jour, and take our greyhound for a nice walk, drinking our smoothies as we walk and talk. It’s a beautiful start to each day. Green smoothies are helping to make this a summer to remember. I feel healthier, inside and out. Thank you!

    My son was diagnosed with a diseased called cholesteotoma back in 2010. It’s where diseased cells grow an attack healthy cells in the inner ear. He’s had one surgery a year since then to laser/scrape them out. I decided that I was going to focus on what’s feeding the cells and have decide to change my son’s (14 years old now) diet to see it that’ll help his condition. So he won’t feel alone, I’ve begun changing my diet as well. Eating more fruits and vegetables and less spicy food, carbs, etc have definitely slowed down the process but a Blendtec to begin giving my son more variety in his taste buds would sure shake things up!

    Thanks for sharing your great recipes and inspiring stories with the public. You guys are an awesome asset to the ‘natural’ world. Keep up the good work!

    My fiancé and I saw a friend’s post on Facebook asking if anyone would do the 30 day challenge with her in July. We looked up the recipes and realized we had most of the ingredients to make our first green smoothie. As fate would have it it was the “beginners luck” smoothie. We blended up our concoction and ended up with a bright green smoothie that looked unnatural. We toasted glasses and to our surprise it was delicious!
    That was 8 weeks ago! Since then I don’t drink coffee in the morning, my skin looks great and we both have lost weight! Green smoothies are now a part of our daily lives! Thank you for the great recipes!

    Green smoothies are my saving grace! They have helped me lose weight and gain more energy, and making one is the best part of my morning. I don’t even need coffee anymore to wake up. Thank you for the inspiration and support that your challenge has provided!

    Green smoothies give me an energy boost in the morning so I can skip the coffee. I also love how filling they are. I could easily make it to lunch without eating but usually grab a small snack in the morning to keep my metabolism going. I’ve also been very healthy and haven’t caught any of the office colds that get passed around.

    I love green smoothies because it makes me feel great and if I don’t have them I crave them and need to go to the store right away to get ingredients! I think it helped me lose weight after baby #2 and My baby is also very healthy and strong! I think the smoothies were a big part of that! Thank you for all you do!

    10am is smoothie time in our household. As busy New Yorkers, my husband and I, though we work from home a lot, can easily go days without having much non-work related interaction. So we’ve made 10am, every morning, our break time when we meet in our kitchen, make a smoothie together, hang out and catch up. We take 15 – 20 minutes, cheers over our green smoothie, take notes and rate our smoothie recipe for the day, and part ways to get on with our busy days. Thanks Jen and Jadah! You’ve taken the guesswork out of it all and made daily smoothies so accessible to us.

    Simple Green Smoothies has been the No.1 lifestyle that I finally can stick to, even after the challenges are over! My eyes have been opened on how great vegetables can taste and be prepared in crazy awesome ways! I have a green smoothie every morning as a nutritional kick start (not to mention those vitamins)! Thanks to Jen and Jadah, I feel better every day and feel like I’m finally starting each day off right! We just closed on our FIRST home yesterday and a Blendtec would sure be the best “welcome home” gift!!!!
