    Green smoothies just make me feel better, about myself and also nutrition wise. I like knowing what I’m putting in my body!

    This website has been a great resource for me! Thank you. I’ve been saving up for a long time and just bought a Vitamix! I use it all the time! Green smoothies are helping curb my afternoon munchies. I’m preaching the joys of a good blender to anyone I meet. (I just brought my Vitamix in my suitcase to a big family reunion!) If I receive your Blendtec, I’ll pass it on to my sister who has been inspired to start drinking her greens and helping her family get healthy!

    My husband and I started green smoothies 53 days ago – they’ve change the way we eat, and think about our foods. We both feel much healthier!

    WOW! Who knew 6 weeks ago how much drinking a green smoothie a day would change my life. I just had a 6 month checkup for blood work yesterday. My “bad” cholesterol has dropped from 121 to 68 — an almost 50% reduction. That’s terrific. Drinking a green smoothie was the only thing I had changed in 6 weeks.

    I knew I wasn’t getting enough of fruits and vegies so I was looking forward to feeling better, which I do but this is such an added bonus. The doctor was so impressed she took me off pravastatin. BONUS!

    I Love green smoothies! Years ago when first introduced to green smoothies I said no way! YUK I loved to eat veggies so that wasn’t the problem. Honestly, it was the appearance. One look and I said no way.
    Fast forward a few years ( a few AHEM pounds) and child. My body no longer was the same. Tired all the time, stressed, and not even eating as I once had. I mean, if I fixed something for everyone else, why not just join in. Easier. No energy. Tired.
    Then came TA DA this website. Jen & Jadah, you’ve done it again! You’ve made me a green smoothie fan. I have definitely changed up the recipes because I don’t own full size blender, but I just follow the basic outlines and voila! deliciousness in a glass.
    Now if my friends look at my cup and ask (horrified) what is that! I just smile and take a big drink thinking to myself, remember when I was like that!
    I haven’t suddenly reached all of my goals in one miraculous month. I didn’t become a supermodel. I did however, make a giant shift in my life and the lives of those around me.
    Thank You Thank You Thank You

    I’m pretty new to Green Smoothies, but I love how it’s an easy way to get more veggies in my family. My 2 year old son is extremely picky when it comes to green veggies, but he loves his smoothies. So far, I’ve only tried Kale in the smoothies, but he still loved it and asks for more each time. Plans are to try a new veggie each week! Thanks for all the recipes you posted and the 30 day challenge! I’d love to win this blender, because right now all we have is a $40 blender that has issues blending the frozen fruits and harder veggies.

    As a very busy mother of 3 young boys (5, 2, and 6 months) I find it very hard to find time to nourish myself, which is not good as I am still nursing. I have found since doing the 30 day challenge I am feel better and more energized to go in the morning. Having an awesome blender like this wold make things even better.

    Since there’s a lot of fruits and veggies I don’t like to eat, I started making smoothies to incorporate them into my diet.
    Love the Simple Green Smoothie website and emails. So much information.
    Thanks for sharing your love of Green Smoothies.
    Haven’t had a ‘fail’ yet, but I know what to do if I do!
    loving the smoothies…would love to win the blender…I have a good one, but would love to give it to my daughter. (she gave hers away)

    Green smoothies are not only tasty, but the’ve made me feel far more healthier! No true weightloss yet but I’m not giving up, green smoothies have really began to change my life.

    Green Smoothies help me get the benefits of super foods in a fast food time frame. The information you provide is vital towards meeting my nutritional needs.

    I discovered your site just days before the July green smoothie challenge started. I have a bladder condition (Interstitial Cystitis) where eating ‘real’ food drastically helps ease symptoms. I’ve been looking for ways to reduce sugar intake and eliminate processed foods, including coffee. The green smoothies have really helped! I look forward to them every morning. My favorite side affect is the energy I get from them, especially having given up coffee. I split it with my husband and he says he is feeling more energized as well!

    Green smoothies have made it simple to get the right nutrients in without sacrificing convenience or flavor! I’ve even tried new stuff I now LOVE because it’s less scary to use a tried & tested recipe. Thanks!

    Green smoothies have helped me jump start my mornings in a healthy way that leaves me feeling energetic for the rest of the day! If I’m going for a long rehearsal (opera singer), I throw one in my bag and know that I will be able to have a healthy kick start in the middle of the rehearsal, when I need it. Also a lot easier to have a few quick gulps while being given notes, as opposed to rudely munching in my directors face! I feel more energy, I’m sleeping better and I have lost a few pounds. Feeling good!! 🙂

    Green smoothies are the BEST!! I started drinking green smoothies because I wanted to eat healthier. I recently had a son and with a new baby it was really hard for me to make sure I was eating healthy. It was not only important but also for my baby since I am breast feeding. It feels great to know that I am doing something that is good for me and my baby plus it had helped me make healthier choices throughout the day.

    I’m so thrilled that I came across the page on Instagram, After having my baby I wanted to get back in shape, lose a few pounds and of course eat healthier. What became something I sought after for myself actually ended up being something my whole family enjoyed!! My 10 and 4 year old daughter’s love to help me make them and my now 10 month old son can not get enough of it (: a simple challenge actually improved our eating habits, no more snacking on junk, we now look forward to our flavorful smoothies & now share a common hobby for the whole family!!

    I have used some smoothie recipes in the past but never ones with greens. These recipes are great. But, what I love most about this challenge is the influence I am having on my family. I have three children ages 5 and under and my mother in law comes to help a few days a week so I can go running. Since I started the challenge, my children and MIL are drinking smoothies every day too! I love how I am keeping my children healthy and helping my MIL become healthy too. If I am lucky enough to win the blender, I plan on giving it to my MIL and teaching her how to make smoothies so she can continue on her path to health.
