    Green smoothies are quick and delicious to whip up and they make me feel like I’m doing something great for myself. They changed my life by helping me realize that I actually LOVE kale!

    A friend posted your challenge on Facebook and it motivated me to get started. I’ve been drinking kale, spinach, and lots of other delicious ingredients I would never have tried before in my green smoothies, every morning for about three months now. I’ve lost weight, I have a lot more energy, I really like it.

    Green smoothies were such a blessing in disguise for me and my family. I was diagnosed with hypothiroid when I was young, which basically means my metabolism does what it wants, and not what I want it to. My energy levels are lower than most people’s as well, and although I’m medicated, I still hit that 3 PM wall harder than most. Recently, I decided to make some lifestyle changes by cutting gluten out of my life, as well as artificial sweeteners–and the changes in my disposition and energy levels were huge. I still wasn’t seeing all of the weight loss I would’ve liked to, and my mom told me about her awesome experience on your green smoothie challenge! I dove in, and have been shedding about a pound a day! Each morning, I make a smoothie and almost forget about my sick caffeine addiction and dependency–the green concoction gives me such an energy boost, I don’t always need to make that Starbucks run! My entire family embarked on this journey, and we are all reaping the benefits. We share recipes, bring home new fruits to try, and have all found a fail proof method of making our own signature, delicious smoothies. For me, especially, the results have been life changing. This summer, I have watched my body and mind transform into one energetic, light and happy being–something I couldn’t say prior to starting this journey. Most of my nineteen years have been spent body shaming and wishing I could change my fate. Finding such a simple solution to this detrimental way of life has given me a way to love myself, and my body. They say it starts from the inside, and that means ingredients like leafy greens and good vibes. Fortunately, the two really do come hand in hand. I’ll be heading back to college in August, and my mom and I have already started the blender discussion. Should we purchase a single serve, or a power blender? As you know, the decision isn’t one to be taken lightly. Hopefully my story inspires you to continue with your brilliant, witty and beautiful challenges. This 30 day challenge is a lifestyle for me, and I’m sure for many others. Thank you.

    I was inspired by your challenges and recipes and have been on a green smoothie journey for 1.5 years. It’s the perfect ‘meal’ to wind down and feel nourished after a day of teaching and caring for my community. I’ve become more attuned to what is truly serving my body, mind and spirit. I’m sharing the green smoothie love with students and friends alike and have many of them hooked. Smiles bubble up knowing that they’re avoiding processed foods loaded with sugar and instead are reaping the many benefits of eating fresh, raw foods. Keep on rocking the green smoothie love, Ladies!

    This is my second round at simple green smoothies challenge. I started this April 2014 but didn’t finish. I gave up on myself even when the green smoothies were making me feel great. I would even blend some for my 2 year old son (you’d be surprise how fast he’d finish it) since he’s a picky eater. After the challenge I’d blend the rest of the recipes here and there but didn’t follow through like the first 2 weeks. When I saw the challenge coming again I got excited and began checking my email constantly for recipes. I’ve kept up with this challenge along with my son and it’s making me feel great. No more bloated feeling or laziness. I can’t wait to see what other results I notice once this challenge is done. Thank you!

    The Greene Smoothie Challenge and the benefits of green smoothies have definitely changed my life and my family. From something I would have never tried in the past from the color alone and secondly the fear of a horrible taste, to now something I look forward to each morning, green smoothies are now definitely a staple for me. As a working mom always on the go, I love the nutritional benefits and the extra energy I have all day. Not only do I enjoy them but my one year old son loves them as well in his favorite cup. Exchanging my fast food breakfast for a green smoothie has helped me drop 12 pounds! I am so happy I found you guys on IG and started the 30 Day Challenge. The combinations are endless and a cute straw definitely adds the perfect little touch.

    Green smoothies have not only changed my life but it changed my two year old daughters who doesn’t like eating veggies. She gets sick more often then usual but I feel with the help of green smoothies it helps her get stronger. I think with a better blender she can enjoy it even more. I love everything about green smoothies and so happy I found you guys to help our lives and health get better. I know this is a lifelong relationship with green smoothies! Thank you!

    Green smoothies are my necessary in the morning. Most people need coffee, well don’t talk to me till I have my smoothie. With two kids and 2 crazy work schedules my smoothies give me the energy and the brain power to tackle any thing the day can throw at me. This new blender would be a life saver though, I have an old Cuisinart blender that just doesn’t get the job done, but I have grown to love chunky smoothies:)

    The green smoothie lifestyle is a great way to get all of the necessary vitamins and nutrients along with things like, helping to regulate blood sugar. I have been able slowly lose weight and balance my entire system, even my, ahem, bowels are happier when I blend every day.

    I am a college student, going into my junior year in the fall, and ever since I started college I have noticed a decline in my health. College is stressful and I didn’t know how to balance my studies and my health. Lately I have noticed signs pointing to the possibility of my thyroid being underactive so I realized that if I don’t take charge of my health now I would regret it later. I went online looking for different ways to jumpstart my health journey and I stumbled onto this website. I can honestly say that doing this 30-day green smoothie challenge has changed my life and has gotten my health headed in the right direction. So far I have lost 6 pounds and this challenge has helped me change my health habits so that I am eating healthier and I am making an effort to exercise every day. This challenge has also helped me solidify any doubts I had in my mind about my college major, I am a Nutrition Science major and after starting this challenge I have realized the amazing benefits of fruits and vegetables and I know I want to help others discover these benefits as well. So, this challenge has changed my life because it has given me the desire to be healthier and it has also provided me an experience that I can share to inspire my clients in the future.

    Feeling like I have more energy to take on the world. Its hard having to wake up at 4am everyday to get to yoga at 5am and then rush on to class and work, but now that I’m on a cleaner diet, it all seems possible. 😀
