    Green smoothies are great! I feel like making this healthy choice in the morning helps keep me on track for the rest of the day. I also like it makes enough for two so I can have the rest for an afternoon pick me up!

    This is my first challenge. My husband, and my three kids 6,5, and 3 (smaller portions for them of course) are all doing it and LOVING it! We all feel great. I have more energy all day long! Thanks for the great recipes and shopping lists!

    The challenge was very motivational. Even the emails were a constant reminder for me to put my health first. Thanks so much for all of the work and passion that you have put forth to help others!!

    I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2012. I’ve received a year of chemo and undergone four operations. I am currently cancer free and want to stay that way! The chemical and preservative laden foods we ingest are, in my opinion, a large contributor to many of our illnesses. I started the green smoothie challenge to get as many vitamins and minerals in my system as possible, improve my energy, my skin and eat all natural and organic fruits and vegetables.
    Since beginning this challenge, my energy level has improved so much that I’ve begun exercising again. My skin is brighter and I feel healthier and excited about my future cancer free! I experimented with juicing before my green smoothie discovery and found it very frustrating and expensive. It required too much prep work and the amount of juice extracted was minimal for the amount of food I purchased and juiced. Not so with these green smoothies!
    I love the recipes, the variety of foods and various ways to substitute ingredients or just use your favorites. I purchased a less expensive blender to get started and would love to win this blender to continue with my path to health and vitality!
    Thank you for sharing!

    I’ve really enjoyed green smoothies. I’m not a big vegetable person, so I love the way I can sneak greens into my diet and not even notice. The smoothies are so yummy!

    4 words: my skin, my brain, my joints, my energy level. In the last year of Green Smoothies, my skin stays hydrated and smooth. I am having far fewer problems with fuzzy-thinking and forgetfulness. I don’t feel as stiff in my joints as I had been feeling (I’m in my 50s). And, I actually have energy–physical, mental, and emotional energy–after supper each night. Some of my friends have been promoting Plexus, the pink drink, for renewed energy and better health. I tell them I don’t need it because I have Green Smoothies! 🙂

    I was on a mission to heal my family! I am a mother of 5 children and we have a very busy household. Since January of this year, there has been some type of illness going around our home. After months of at least one of our 7 person family being ill every week, I was getting desperate. A friend sent me your website and told me to check it out – Her busy family had turned to these smoothies awhile back, and between these smoothies and trying to go chemical free at their house, she said her family had not been sick in 3 years! So my husband and I decided to give it a try. I am so thankful we did. My digestion pain and discomfort has subsided. We are now getting our daily veggies and fruits into our diet, my husband has lost some weight, and we have NOT been sick! I am so thankful to have found your wonderful green smoothie challenge and website. You have a family for life here.

    These smoothies are amazing! I spent the last several months scouring the web for smoothie recipes that did not have sugar, yogurt, or icecream in them and came up empty handed most of the time. That is until I found the Green Smoothie challenge! These are not only the type of ingredients I was hoping for but they are incredibly easy to make! I’d like to give a special shoutout to the banana-free smoothie page! THANK YOU! 🙂

    I have trouble with fresh fruit sometimes from contact allergies. Green smoothies let me enjoy fresh fruit with less allergy symptoms because I am mixing in other ingredients. Plus drinking a green smoothie takes less time so less contact. I get feel better about my fruit/veggie intake.

    I had always wondered what the ‘craze’ was about going green for your diet….I can honestly say my mind was BLOWN. I had no idea the types of benefits that I have received since I started introducing these to my family. What is great is, I can have it for breakfast, and remain full for hours and have loads of energy! I have been able to almost completely cut out coffee because of these wonderful drinks! My son seems to be always hungry, but having a smoothy actually seems to sustain him, and he actually asks for a smoothy over his normal chips or cookies. I value these drinks because they have really seemed to change our diets around and get us on the right track to healthier living. Thank you for this!

    Participating in the green smoothie challenge has completely changed my life. I feel healthier. i feel more energetic. I feel more alive. I am more confident. I am more knowledgeable about whats good for my body. I am more enthusiastic to workout ona daily basis. I have become more sociable because I gained my confidence back. By incorporating the green smoothies into my healthy lifestyle along with working out on a daily basis. I have went from 221 lbs to 171 lbs thus far. My journey is not over. I am aiming for 150 lbs and I will achieve that goal as long as I stick to my healthy lifestyle. 30 day green smoothis challenge ROCKS!!!!!

    I’ve been doing green smoothies with my two kids, ages 3 & 5. I love that I can get extra vitamins into their diets without the fuss that sometimes comes from these picky eaters. We are loving it!

    I love the taste of many of your green smoothie recipes. I have shared your website with friends so they can try them too. Right now I’m on Day 2 of the 21 day cleanse. I’m sure this is going to change my life. I’m ready to get rid of the toxins and start fresh. I can’t believe how much I could eat on the first day. The Strawberry Fields recipe was delicious.

    I’m just a few days into the challenge but am loving it already. I eat my fruits and veggies but get in a rut and tend to eat the same ones. I love that this challenge is causing me to buy fruits AND veggies that I don’t usually buy, giving me so much more variety in my foods! We make our smoothies after the kids get up from their naps and we all drink it! My kids are now looking forward to their daily smoothies, and so am I!!
