    I love the green smoothie challenge! The shopping lists make it so simple and the recipes make my smoothies WAY tastier than when I was just winging it. I can’t believe I’m actually forgoing my morning cuppa joe half the time. Thanks ladies!

    Simple Green Smoothies have changed my life by giving me a true foundation for being aware of what I eat and how what I eat can help or hurt my body. Once I started drinking green smoothies, small changes that I thought were insignificant at the time, started manifesting themselves in my life. Initially, it was the creation of habit – I wanted to do 30 smoothies for 30 days, so each night, I prepped my smoothie and respun it in the morning for extra smoothness. After that, I started buying my fruits and vegetables from the Farmer’s Market (90%) or Whole Foods (10%) once a week, instead of a typical 2-3 week haul of groceries from Walmart or Publix. It saved me money, my food was fresh, and I enjoyed my experience grocery shopping that I used to hate. Finally, the biggest change I would say was using fruits and veggies outside of my smoothie and in my different snacks/meals through the day. Breakfast omelettes had spinach, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and pineapple in it before I would find any cheese or meat. There are many more ways that Simple Green Smoothies have changed my life, but overall, it has made me more aware of what I consume and why I consume it. It started off as a fun challenge, then embedded itself in my daily routine, helping me realize the importance of intent in life. I am intentionally happy, and I love my mango, spinach, banana, and almond milk smoothie for any and everyday 🙂

    I love that I can get some easy nutrition in my morning. Recently I was sick and I knew I needed to eat something but nothing at all sounded good, so I made a smoothie. It made such a difference and really perked me up. I wasn’t miraculously healed or anything, but I felt a ton better.

    When I first heard about green smoothies I thought that I couldnt possibly go through with this….that was about 8 months ago and I have been going strong. I drink a green smoothie 5 times a week and swap it out for lunch. Even if I don’t win this blender I feel accomplished and healthier since I came across simple green smoothies! I just wanted to thank you Jadah and Jen for creating this journey and sharing it to the world(:

    I’ve started drinking green smoothies for breakfast. Increasing my water intake and drinking lemon ginseng green tea. I’m already feeling better in mind and body! The inspiration to start came from Simple Green Smoothies! Thank you Rawkstars!

    Green smoothies have helped me stay on track with my nutrition and weight loss goals. They fuel my body with energy and goodness and I cannot wait every morning for my next one. I love trying out new recipes too!

    Im new to green smooties (well all smoothies). I was surprised how great greens taste with other vegies and fruits. I like to add a little yogurt in the morning to get my needed calcium. Love the shared recipes you provide to us, thank you.

    I’ve solved some of my life-long issues with my stomach finally (I’m almost 52) with a change in diet incorporating green smoothies. I haven’t suffered with the usual distress and discomfort from eating which I did daily. And, “gunk” is being removed naturally making me feel thinner and great! I never liked (or tolerated) dairy fruit smoothies. Once I came across green smoothies, I realized my body craved dairy free and green vegetables in an icy, thick absolutely delicious drink. My “go to” fav is Romaine/Spinach/Orange/Avocado/Mint/Coconut Water. Love getting the recipes. I’ve tried most of them!

    I love how green smoothies make it so easy to start the day off healthy for both me and my family. I also love how they are so portable so I can drink them on the way to work.

    For a while I was anemic and green smoothies helped me get more iron and other nutrients into my diet. Green smoothies have also helped me with my sugar cravings, and have given me stronger hair and nails.

    I had a vegetarian restaurant in the 70’s and made “Green Drinks” in an Oster Blender. Of course I had to strain the pulp to make it tasty. I rediscovered “Green Smoothies” 2 years ago, after a month stay in a hospital from a nasty heart attack. One doctor told me to get my affairs in order as it didn’t look like I’d make it. Standing, walking, doing normal routines was a challenge. I didn’t have any energy to feed myself let alone chew any food! I was in “bad shape”! I saw the NutriBullet Commercial on TV and new immediately that “Green Smoothie Blasts” were what I needed to get Optimum Nutrition, easily digestible, quick to make and easy to clean, and even provided unlimited variety of recipes, and it was FUN! The other people in my Senior Apartment Complex looked at me as that “health nut’. In time as they saw how drinking at least two Green Smoothies a Day, along with the other work I do for better health began to make a difference in how I feel and looked, they wanted to know more. I started to do presentations and make ” Green Smoothies” for people, and share information with them. They started to get “Green Smoothie” Fever! Six people got Bullets and one a Vitatec. Since I’m using my machine so much, the New Blendtec with the Big Container would make Life easier and able to make more “Green Smoothies” for more people. “Life begets Life! Green Smoothies are just the Best Way to add Life to your Life, especially if you add Sprouts to your “Leafy Greens!” But that’s another story…
