    I’m thankful to have found your site and entered into the world of simple green smoothies. I have battled with my weight all my life, and even after taking up running and progressing in to distances including the Boston Marathon (for charity) I still just didn’t feel like I had reached success. Overweighted ness just loomed over y shoulder. I work over nights saving lives as a paramedic, and sometimes with time being of the essence the “wheel of death” vending machines can literally kill you. Ever since finding this site my overnight energy has definitely improved, even if my green smoothies are a little on the still need to be chewed side, my little blender does the best it can. Thanks for all you do. I love the 30 day trials. Thank you.

    Green smoothies have changed my life. They give me energy to make it through the day, taste great, and are a great way for me to get my fruits and veggies in everyday. They make for a great start for my day and I look forward to having them everyday. I’m so greatful for the 30 day challenges as they help me diversify my recipes and expose me to new combos that I never would’ve thought of before.

    The Green Smoothie challenge has been so great for me, that I’ve even recommended it to my friends and coworkers. They saw me coming in every morning with my container and wanted to know more. Now they’re hooked :-).

    Thanks you guys for creating this amazing challenege and helping us change our lives for the better!!

    I love making the green smoothies for breakfast! It definitely gives my husband and I an energy boost to our day. We even freeze the smoothie packs ahead of time to make it easier!!

    I’m a college kid. Most days, I have neither the time nor the mental energy to think up a balanced meal and make sure that I’m eating enough fruits and vegetables. My three staple meals, sadly, consist cold cereal, pb&j, or pasta with tomato sauce. Adding a green smoothie to each day restores some of the balance that I know I’m missing. That balance helps me stay more alert through all my homework and classes.

    This is the 4th green smoothie challenge that my husband and I have done and we absolutely LOVE them! We’ve even gotten a few other families at church to do them (I take mine to church with me and everyone asks what they are)! We have one for breakfast every morning and if we ever skip a day we feel terrible and don’t have near as much energy! I love the way my skin feels and looks and my fingernails are healthy for the first time ever! So many health benefits of eating at least one raw meal a day! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Simple Green Smoothies!!!

    I tried the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge because I recognized that I needed to change my eating habits. At 34 years old and the working mother of an almost-two year old, I can’t afford to feel sluggish and exhausted! I wasn’t necessarily overeating, but I wasn’t eating right and wanted to treat my body better. I came across the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge and it was a game-changer for me, no doubt. I found that my body actually wanted the delicious fruit and veggie smoothies rather than a processed meal or snack and my energy level was noticeable improved. One of the best parts of the Challenge was that my son actually liked drinking many of the delicious smoothies I made, and knowing he is getting a serving of fruits and veggies is a mom’s dream! Another benefit to the Challenge, as well as the Simple Green Smoothies site, is that there are numerous smoothie recipes to try; a participant is not limited to just a few that they need to drink over and over again. I even started feeling confident enough to try my own recipes at home! I have a standard blender/food processor combo at home, but would love the Blendtec Designer 725 so I can try more of the recipes offered on the Blendtec site- it’s not just for smoothies! Simple Green Smoothies and Blendtec are making it too convenient for me not to continue with this healthier lifestyle.

    I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease back in 2009 and doctors recommended that I reduce the amount of raw vegetables I consume, as they tend to be harder to digest. Green smoothies allow me to consume a healthy amount of vegetables in a simple, delicious way!

    By incorporating green smoothies into my diet I have seen a significant decrease in my bad cholesterol, an increase in my good cholesterol and a signficant drop in my trigylcerides. My doctor didn’t think I could do it. Green smoothies along with a diet that emphasizes fruit/veggies, lean protein, carb cycling and exercise has been a winning combination for me.

    Green smoothies have given me new energy! I’m replacing my usual unhealthy snacking habits with green smoothies, and they really give me a burst of energy in the late afternoon. My 16-year old daughter is doing the smoothie challenge with me too, and I’m thrilled to see her giving up sodas and drinking smoothies with vegetables. She vowed she’d never eat spinach, but she’ll slurp up a green smoothie. Thanks for the great recipes!

    Starting my day off with a green smoothie inspires me to make healthy eating choices for the rest of the day. Green smoothies, combined with my running, not only keeps me healthy, but sets an example to my children that exercise and good nutrition are important. And they love to see me get my blender out – they are right there asking for a smoothie too!

    Green smoothies have definetly helped me on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I am somewhat limited to the activities I am able to perform due to an autoimmune disease called Myasthenia Gravis however I give it my all everyday! I love the recipes and even share them with co-workers. These are a great snack during the day.

    I am so much more regular now that I drink 2 green smoothies each day. Also I really appreciate the fresh produce section at the grocery store. I feel so young and look younger get too!

    I live alone and getting enough green vegetables in my diet was a challenge. No longer! Drinking one or two green smoothies a day has solved that problem. It is an easy and delicious way to achieving a healthy diet.

    The smoothies have really helped balance out my blood sugar. Instead if having morning crashes I’m fully satisfied until lunch time!

    I have been drinking green smoothies for about a year…the same smoothies, day after day. I love them, but they were getting old. Not anymore! Your recipes are so yummy, and so many to choose from! I love the variety you girls provide. Thanks so much!
