    I try to do a green smoothie every morning. It gives me the energy I need to get thru a 12 shift. Without them my body fills lost.

    My husband and I have been drinking green smoothies since the beginning of June. I thought it was going to be difficult with just the green smoothie in the mornings, but it is just the opposite! I feel more energized and am able to get the day started right, instead of drinking creamer-filled coffee!
    The recipes are great and we have graduated to ‘experimenting’ with our own mixtures. I would mash the ingredients by hand if I had to!!

    Before starting the 30-day challenge, my husband and I were completely opposite in our eating habits. As silly as it may sound to some, we are glad to have found another way to be healthy together and be one another’s support.

    I love starting my day with a smoothie. I know I have the required fruits and vegggies for the day and any others I eat will be extra nutrition.

    I’ve been trying to eat clean due to several medical issues,, dental included. The short of it, due to the dental issues, its hard dealing with a lot of crunchy veggies. Smoothies have changed all that, and its also a perfect way to start the day!

    I love the Green Smoothie Challenge- I am doing this for health reasons but also as a way to jump start a lifestyle change. I won’t be just doing this for the 21 days- this will be the way I eat, shop for & look at food from here on out- I am also using this challenge with a 21 day mediation challenge- so I am getting the full on mind, body, spirit effect- I feel fantastic. I have a Hamilton Beach blender my mum gave me- which I am super grateful for but winning this would be incredible!

    I started 1 week ago and with my 17 year old daughter. We both share making these and they are so easy and tasty. We were both big smoothie drinkers before but without the greens. I love that the taste is not overly green and they taste like regular fruit smoothies. We will add a handful of nuts, coconut, oatmeal, flax or protein powder when we want to mix it up a little and give it more bite. Thanks for your wonderful challenge and great attitude.

    I have been doing fruit smoothies off and on for the last couple of years and when I stumbled across your 30 day green smoothie challenge and I was immediately curious. I’ve been looking for ways to add more veggies to my diet along with the fruit. I personally don’t mind the chunky smoothies but I have two step children with special needs and one of them is super sensitive to texture and neither will do fruits or vegetables (except bananas). I left my job of 25 years when they came to our home last November to live with us full time because of there needs. I fix meals for the family and a separate plate for one child and I have to piece something together for the other, nothing healthy. He will drink yogurt smoothies so I think that the blendtec blender would be a solution to getting the “entire” family on board with healthier eating habits and less time in the kitchen for me!!

    I would love, love, love to win a Blendtec blender to make my smoothie, creamy smoothies. Green smoothies have been a life saver and such a convenient easy way for me to guarantee that I consume my daily requirements of fruits and veggies. There is no other way that I would be able to consume all of this food on a regular daily basis except in a smoothie. I am so blessed to have come across the simple green smoothies website and all the delicious recipes and information. I so hope to win so that my smoothies will be even better than they already are.

    Green smoothies have definitely changed my life. I am a diabetic who is on two different types of insulin and pills. After starting to drink the green smoothies this month, my sugar levels have gone from 149 to 71. A few more months of doing this, I will be able to stop taking those medicines. I am under a doctors care. This will be a part of a new healthy lifestyle for me.

    When I started making green smoothies on my own. They really tasted bad. I would have to hold my nose to even get them down. With your recipes they are tasty and so much better for me than what I was doing! Thanks!

    SGS, thank you for what you stand for and do! I’ve done the green smoothie challenge twice with my mom. I have much more energy after each green smoothie. Also, my mom has begun to incorporate them as part of her breast cancer recovery. The green smoothies give her a perk that I have missed during her lengthy sickness–she has more energy from them, but they help her emotionally as well, which is my favorite part. Now, my boyfriend wants a healthy lifestyle but has no clue where to start. He likes the idea of green smoothies but doesn’t have a blender. I hope that I win this for him because of how SGS have inspired him through my wonderful mama and me! What a perfect way to help him kick off a new lifestyle with a muscle-machine like the Blendtec! Thank you!

    My morning green smoothies get me energized and ready for the day! I pack mine full of greens like spinach and kale with some cucumber, add some fruit along with extras like egg white protein powder, chia seeds, and bee pollen – keeps me going and I don’t even get hungry until lunch time. This is one habit worth forming!

    I absolutely love the challenges & the green smoothies. I HATE eating veggies, but your smoothies recipes are great & I can’t taste the hidden veggies. I love knowing I’m getting the nutrients I need and also for my 7month old. They also give me energy in the morning without the caffeine when I was up in the middle of the night from a teething baby. 🙂

    My two little guys and I are loving our morning kick-starts! It has taken the place of my morning coffe and helping me feel satisfied and healthy. And it’s the best way to make sure my littles are getting their vitamins naturally!

    Growing up I was overweight and battled severe acne; experiencing these maladies during the most formative years of my life really took a toll on my self esteem. However, when I discovered this site and how delicious green smoothies could be, my life changed…seriously. I swapped my soda’s and fried/junk foods out for green smoothies and my acne began clearing up and the weight came off, thanks to all the nutrient dense greens I was consuming via green smoothies. Now at age 20 I am heading off to college to live on my own for the very first time this fall and would love to have a blender to take with me to continue making my green smoothies and stay healthy while at University. Thank you guys so much for this website, your hassle free albeit delicious green smoothie recipes and this giveaway! You’ve helped me achieve glowing skin, a healthier body, and a better attitude/mindset toward life.

    What I love the best is that my baby guzzles green smoothies every day with me. I feel so good that now that I am not breast feeding him as much he has swapped one liquid goodness for another. For myself I feel that I am glowing. I have had hair loss problems for many years and now my hair is better than it has ever been instead of jokingly flicking tresses over my shoulder maybe soon I really will. My nails…well I now get manicures to keep them under control. I so hope that New Zealand isn’t off the radar for winning one of these but to be honest I already feel like a winner!!! Thanks so much for all your good recipes and tips. Day 18 here in New Zealand and don’t see an end in sight to be honest!!
