    Green smoothies have helped changed me from a picky eater, who could only eat a few vegetable and only ice berg lettuce without loosing it on the table. To someone who can eat lots of variety and a lot of varied greens.

    The green smoothies have helped dealing with all my health issues! I have some nerve, muscle, disc & fibromyalgia issues. Thanks! I have turned on others to you since they are asking me what I have been doing…it’s green smoothie time. I make a green smoothie & have (insist) them try it 🙂

    My son loves helping make the smoothies. We like to try different combinations of fruits and veggies and he always drinks them and asks for more.

    I love eating healthy but just don’t have much time to sit and enjoy what I love. Green smoothies really makes a difference in allowing me to get in everything I need and keep moving so there’s no compromise! Love it!

    I’ve been following your Instagram for over a month now, and it alone inspired me to start up green smoothies. Much of our greens come fresh from our garden. I’ve started dropping my coffee intake, been able to work out and run harder, and even my 22-month-old wakes up every morning shouting, “Smoothie! Smoothie!” Thanks! We love the recipes 🙂

    Finally, I’ve been able to get my step daughter (who has lactose intolerance and other food allergies) to get a healthy variety of fruits and veggies by way of green smoothies. Love them!

    If I would happen to be fortunate to win, I would send this blender to my daughter. She is a recent college grad working as an Americorps Vista volunteer in Arizona. (like the Peace Corps, only domestic) She faithfully begins her day with a green smoothie, using an immersion blender to make them. She is such a believer in them, she accepts the “texture” of that type of blending.
    After saving for 2 years, I was finally able to buy a high performance blender for myself a year ago. Before then, I too, was using my immersion blender for smoothies. The way I’m able to so easily include green smoothies daily as part of my diet now is amazing! Sometimes they are fruit based & other times all vegetables…or a combo…always with greens of some sort. It’s how I begin my day; with intended leftover in the fridge for whenever wanted thru-out the day/evening. I feel great…lots of energy. My body & mind feel like they’re working the way they’re meant to. (the saying “clear eyed & busy tailed” comes to mind!)

    I would love for my daughter to have the ability to expand & continue her green smoothie journey in the way a Blendtex blender would allow.

    Green Smoothies set me up for a day of healthy eating. I throw in gelatin, flax, and other foods I wouldn’t eat on their own. I recently had surgery and post and pre op I focused on anti-inflammatory smoothies and they helped my recovery.

    Green smoothies are great! I use them if I am short on time for a quick breakfast or lunch (with chia for protein!). I also use them because it is stinkin hard to get my little boys to eat greens, particularly my toddler. But they love green smoothies!

    I love my green smoothies! They are a huge part of my return to vitality and strength. My favorite at the moment is my pumpkin pie smoothie… spinach, almond milk, protein powder, spices, ginger, and frozen pumpkin. Yum!

    But I’ve killed 2 blenders this week…I need something better!

    My green smoothie journey began earlier this year, in January. With my mom being a nutritionist, and only buying the best foods, I felt confident with my day to day diet. Despite this, I felt that a change was needed. For school, I was required to wake up every day at 6am, and even though I maintained a consistent routine, always going to sleep at 9:30pm, I was always groggy and cranky in the mornings. I talked to my mom about starting green smoothies since I found your account on instagram, and she thought it was a great idea! I remember the first day I had one of your grean smoothies for breakfast, along with my regular cup of yogurt and granola, and felt absolutely amazing!! I had a great day at school and have been grateful ever since for you weekly emails 🙂

    Green smoothies energize me and get me ready for the day! And my kids will pretty much eat anything that comes out of the Blendtec;)

    A big green smoothie for breakfast is my favorite way to start the day. They’re fast, nutrient packed, delicious, and you can mix them up any which-way (which is the best!). I love knowing that I’ve got so much goodness in one jar that will energize and fuel me through my day, and that something so tasty is so healthful as well.

    Green smoothies have changed me from Prediabetic with an AC1 of 7 to a normal, healthy, strong 53 year old woman with perfectly normal levels. Plus I’ve lost 23 pounds! I’ve learned to freeze kale to add to smoothies. I’ve learned add lettuce and spinach to berries and nut butters for my daily smoothie. I have a smoothie every morning. My teenage daughters are smoothie drinkers (usually in the afternoon). I’m so excited to have satisfying, delicious, healthy smoothies. What a discovery!!

    During my single years in college, I had a very healthy and balanced diet. After getting married and starting graduate school, it has been harder to find time to prepare well-balanced meals that suit the taste buds of myself and my spouse. I became a pickier eater myself, craving convenience foods and quick carbs over the fruits and veggies that previously filled my tummy. SimpleGreenSmoothies.com has inspired me to get creative with healthy eating again, and has reminded me that healthy eating can be simple, easy and delicious. I’ve had a green smoothie almost everyday for the past few months, and I feel ah-may-zing. Even my husband is willing to give green smoothies a try 🙂
