    I have been doing the green smoothie challenge for a week now. I am currently pregnant and was having a lot of stomache and digestive issues, I was constantly uncomfortable and bloated and feeling sick. Even in the short week I’ve been doing smoothies, there has been a dramatic change in my digestion and I am feeling sooooo much better, with no discomfort, and a boost of energy allowing me to keep up with my toddler. Wish I would have done this sooner! Love these recipes.

    Green smoothies are amazing! I feel more energetic and less bloated. I feel more comfortable in my own skin.

    I always had a hard time getting the kids to enjoy veggies and fruits. Now they ask me to make them some Green Smoothies. Little do they know they are drinking a healthy drink…lol
    Thank You!!!

    For me green smoothies meant more than a delicious beverage in my belly, it meant a shift in lifestyle and health! Green smoothies actually helped me learn to love my veggies! I never used to like vegetables until I started incorporating them in this way and now you can’t catch me skipping even one day without ’em. And since upping my smoothie and veg intake my digestion has become regular and my skin has cleared up. THANK YOU GREEN SMOOTHIE GODDESSES <3

    Without a blend tec there wouldn’t be green smoothies!!-only blender that can make them smooth- with no chunks!!! Tried this out on a group of young women that all insisted they didn’t like spinach – after they tried smoothie they agreed you couldn’t even taste spinach!!!!

    Daily green smoothies have really helped feel better. Getting those good leafy greens in my body cleans me out and peps me up. I have fibromyalgia and eating healthy helps me with my aches and pains. I can drink more fruits and veggies than I’d ever be able to eat all day. It keep me on track and sets the tone for good choices the rest of my day because I don’t want to mess up and eat junk when I’ve had a smoothie.

    I have been drinking the green smoothies everyday for lunch since the beginning of January of this year. I really like them, enjoy the taste and the feeling of well-being I get when using these.

    I have two grandchildren that I am taking care of and raising. My six year old grandson wakes up every morning asking what we are going to put in our smoothies. My ten year old granddaughter is another story! We load her smoothies up with spinach and kale. I put strawberry kiwi natural juice, and frozen strawberries. Sometimes I’ll throw in hemp and sliced almonds. She loves them and has no clue what she’s really drinking! She laughs at her brother because he’s drinking yucky veggies!! He just looks at me and smiles. We are using a magic bullet , which is not sounding very good as it’s struggling to blend. I’m not working right now, so a new blender would be a fabulous addition to our household ! Thank you for introducing us to our new, healthy way of life!!

    March 5th, 2014 I decided to make simple green smoothies a part of my Lenten practice. This choice came after more than a year of soft tissue injuries and joint swelling that put me in constant pain and hardly able to work or sleep. I am a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor at the University of Texas at Austin. I have spent the last 2 years seeking help from doctors for various injuries and joint pain. The last diagnosis was fibromyalgia. I was not content with that diagnosis and less content with my doctors recommendation to put me on one of two drugs, either a very potent nerve blocking medication FOREVER or an antidepressant FOREVER! I decided to try to take care of it naturally myself before agreeing to the medications! I began with simple green smoothies because they really are simple! They taste great! and most importantly I was able to get almost all of my servings of anti-inflammatory fruits and veggies in 2 awesome drinks a day! I was pleasantly surprised when after only 2 weeks the joint swelling was noticeably gone! But there was more…I no longer have headaches, my belly bloating and gas are completely gone. and i have lost 15 pounds! I am getting a full night sleep uninterrupted by pain and am taking ZERO medications! So as you can imagine when my Lenten practice was over this simple green smoothie thing has become a way of living for me and i am slowly getting my husband doing it too. I have wanted to tell you this story for a few months but the blender contest spurred me on to actually share it! I am making 2 blenders full each day in a cheap blender I bought at the grocery store and it lacks a bit to say the least! Whether or not I win a blender I am definitely sold on the health benefits of healing your body and maintaining your health naturally and I AM A HUGE FAN OF SIMPLE GREEN SMOOTHIES FOREVER! A little side note/fun fact to share, I actually had a skin scan done in May to tell the nutrient value of your diet…I am not sure how accurate it is but i came out in the top 1% in antioxidant levels after 2 weeks of green smoothies!

    I never used to eat breakfast and I loved milkshakes whenever I could get them. I’ve changed my habits to drink a smoothie for breakfast. I get the benefit of starting the day out with a meal, I get my milkshake craving in and I have more energy in the morning. I’m down to 1/2 cup of coffee in the morning by changing my habits!

    I got introduced to the green smoothies by you, guys 🙂 I remember I was listening to B-School call and I think Jadah had a question. She mentioned link to the website and… I discovered green smoothies 😉
    I love them! I would never EVER would be able to eat so much green stuff if it wasn’t smoothed into my smoothie 🙂

    Simple Green Smoothies has changed my life because I now have a simple way to eat breakfast. I do not have much of an appetite in the morning so usually just keep it simple and light. I would however be starving by the time lunch came around. The smoothies fill me up and are all so delicious!!! Thank you for all your hard work!!!

    Since I started drinking Green Smoothies I’ve increased my fruit and vegetable intake to a total of 9 to 10 servings a day!! My 3 year old granddaughter helps me make them when she visits and also drinks them!!

    In January, while laying in bed recovering from a brutal Influenza A virus, I started thinking “how could I catch this awful flu”? After all I was so “healthy”…shopping Whole Foods, cooking at home all this wholesome organic food, rarely eating “junk”. As I am starting to feel a bit stronger and able to handle watching Netflix I come across a title that catches my eye: “Fat, sick and nearly dead”!…why not…that’s exactly how I felt anyway! As I am watching, I realize that my so call healthy organic diet is not so healthy and really not so green after all. I jumped on my laptop and started searching for whatever was related to clean & green eating. That’s how I found “Simple Green Smoothies” and Jen & Jadah. I started right away…not only the green smoothies but also cutting off all process sugars and flours and all dairy…don’t ask me why, it just made sense. Now, 6 months later and 38 pounds lighter, I still drink my 2 or 3 green smoothies and/ or juices daily (cannot live without them!), still don’t eat sugar, flour or dairy and feel like a million bucks! I also love the recipes and I am now addicted to the “morning tonic” and the “famous loaded sweet potato”! I am amazed at how great I feel and people are amazed at how great I look! Especially my husband who just 3 weeks ago decided to follow my juicing and smoothing lifestyle and already lost almost 10 pounds. And by the way, I don’t call this a diet change, I call this a lifestyle change! Thank you for inspiring me!

    Making green smoothies a part of my daily routine has increased my energy and helped me shed pounds. I love the recipes you share and they inspire me to try my own combinations. If I happen to miss a day of smoothies I can really feel it. I have been encouraging family, friends and colleagues to do them to feel as great as I do. Thank you for your supportive website and recipes.
