    green smoothies have helped me to kick start my new, fresh and green life. Already lost 15 lbs and I have out-of-this-world energy. No more aches and pains either!

    Green Smoothies have helped me to have clearer skin and given me more energy! I’m also in my third trimester and I know my growing little Rawkstar loves them too!

    Since a friend of mine, a pro athlete, started walking around with a kale smoothie, I was curious…I did a wee bit’ o web searching and headed straight for SGS. Result, my old Waring blender (chug,chug) is whipping up smoothies for my husband and me—we’re trying to do 30 each, then see where we go. He is already saying he’d like to have 2 or 3 a week after that—-and so a fan is born! without the simple recipe—I don’t think we would have made it past day 2.

    I Love the idea behind the Green Smoothie Challenge. It has encouraged me to drink 2 green smoothies a day. One for breakfast and the other as a snack for when I crave something sweet after dinner. I have noticed my clothes are lose, my energy has lifted and I don’t crave an unhealthy snack after I have a green smoothie. They are delish and so healthy for my body.

    Packing a yummy green smoothie for lunch every day has helped me get in my fruits and veggies, a challenge for me usually!

    I never would have drank a smoothie that had any green vegetable in it. Now i’m buying Kale and Spinach just for my smoothies. I even have my son drinking them w/me.

    This has been my first time making and drinking green smoothies. I was very apprehensive in the beginning because I am very picky with taste and textures. I had heard great things and decided that giving it a try would not hurt. Since beginning to use them with the 30 day green smoothie challenge, I have discovered that I really enjoy them. The tastes are fantastic and with a little work and trail and error the texture is good as well. I have discovered I have more energy and my body and skin feel and look more healthy. I have even got my sister in on the challenge and my husband to drink them as well. Thanks so much your website rocks and was just what I didn’t know I was looking for. 🙂

    These yummy smoothies have replaced my old processed protein shakes & I couldn’t feel better! Getting all this amazing nutrition from whole organic foods makes me feel great! I also love that my daughters love them – especially my 3-yr old who will eat almost anything, except leafy greens.
    Thanks for making all us girls healthier – now if only I could get my hubby on board… 🙂

    Green smoothies have been life changing for my children. I have 5 kids ages 7 and under and most mornings they drink a huge smoothie for breakfast! I love that I can get my 2 year old twins to drink spinach, kale and other fruits and veggies for breakfast or a quick snack. The recipes from simple green smoothies keep our smoothie diverse and delicious!

    You two ladies have given me a “new lease on life” (why coin a new phrase when this one totally covers it!). I have always been healthy through no particular fault of my own (good genes). Didn’t work out regularly (lazy), had relatively healthy dinners (salad is a vegetable, right?) but ate fast food during the day. As time went on, the weight gain creeped up on me and one day I realized that I was teetering on the line between over-weight & obese! Me! Tried juicing but dang, all the prep and the cleanup of that monster juicer wore me down (see the “lazy” comment earlier in this post…) and I caved. Then I tried smoothies – cool! I can do this! Admittedly, my first love affair with smoothies didn’t contain veggies – just fruit but they were yummy. Then I found your website and BAM! Getting my veggies on was no longer a daunting task. Had a few problems with the texture and what do you know, BAM! Signed up for your 30 Day Green Smoothie challenge and started getting tips on improving the quality of my smoothies. I now buy my organic greens in bulk and freeze them in individual serving sizes – no more “lazy” excuses about lack of time! I blend my greens with the liquid BEFORE I add the fruit – no more chunks! Ladies, your emails, tips, and recipes have removed every last obstacle from my list of “why I can’t get it together and improve my health”. My energy level has improved and so has my attitude. My weight is slowly but surely getting back to where it should be. I’m still working on the regular exercise problem but I’m nothing if not a work in progress! I am a huge believer in teaching by example rather than preaching (who listens to that anyway?) and I want to be THAT gal to inspire my family toward a healthy lifestyle. Of COURSE I could really use the new Blendtec. But even if I don’t win it, I want to thank you for what you have done for this 63 year old wife, mother, and grandmother – I’m on a roll and not looking back. Oh, and apologies to Emeril for my use of his trademark BAM! It just fits!

    I started out making green smoothies with your website, and I’ve never used another one! Your recipes never disappoint, and I can always count on finding something interesting to make so my breakfasts are never boring. After I had the green smoothie thing into my daily routine for a while, I tried your 21 day cleanse and LOVED IT! I use so many of the recipes every single day now…it has changed the way I eat forever!

    Green smoothies are the best. They have changed not just my life but my children’s too. I have two boys ages 7 & 4 and getting them to eat vegetables is a stress on itself. I usually freeze the smoothies and they eat them as green “icecream”.

    Green smoothies are the best. They have changed my life as well as my children’s. Getting them to eat veggies is a big stressor in my life. I usually use frozen fruits and/or put them in popsicles. They LOVE to eat green “icecream”.

    Green smoothies have restored my love of vegetables! I look forward to having a smoothie everyday and don’t have to stress about forcing down a salad. The variety of recipes have been fun to make and even modify. I even have my husband asking for them. Keep the motivation coming ladies.

    I started the 30 day challenge on the 4th of July and I have been going strong. I have a green smoothie every morning and I feel better when I eat it. It makes me feel strong and healthy
