    Green Smoothies to me were just the thing that everybody was doing to LOOK as if they were living a healthy lifestyle. People post them on instagram daily and there are not any results that follow. I noticed I was eating too much fast food and putting on unwanted pounds. I would miss eating a healthy breakfast in the morning due to rushing. I tried the 30 day challenge out of season for the month of June and it was successful. I just felt better everyday. My skin seemed clearer, I had no need for daily naps anymore, in the morning I could wake up without dragging. I say this to say, its excellent this is my second month and it is a daily routine for me now!

    This is my 2nd time doing the 30-day Green Smoothie Challenge. I’ve never had/made a green smoothie until I started making Simple Green Smoothie Recipes. I’m glad I started and I’ll never stop!! They give me energy throughout the whole day. It’s a great way for me to get my daily fruits, vegetables and nutrients. My skin looks great, my body feels great! I can’t complain, all I do is tell all mt friends to sign up and Join in the life challenge. Green smoothies are the best thing I incorporated into my life. 🙂

    I did not have any idea how incorporating green smoothies in my life would make such a difference. I have tons of energy and they are so simple to make. My body now craves a smoothie every day, sometimes more than one. Thanks for making this challenge. My body is very grateful. 🙂

    It’s been two weeks into this challenge and I am enjoying it. First, I love the taste of combining different fruits with green leaf vegetables. It’s different and really didn’t know I would like it until I tried. Secondly, I feel more energy throughout the day. I start drinking my green smoothies in the morning but keep servings for me at work. Love it and would recommend to my friends and family!!!

    This is my 3rd Green Smoothie Challenge with you ladies and I did it initially as a fad, the second time was in solidarity with a friend. This 3rd time was by request from my 11yr old daughter to make smoothies together. As an entrepreneur I don’t have a lot of time to bond with her but this challenge has given us an opportunity to have mother daughter time and create some fun and tasty smoothies. She was also a little self conscious about her weight (despite my constant encouragement)…she’s reaching her teen years so everything I say is from her loving mother but since we’ve started our morning smoothie ritual her confidence is up and our relationship is strengthening…and for once she’s getting her greens. Oh and I’ve lost 5lbs, but that’s only 2nd to how it has changed my daughter’s life.

    I’ve started making green smoothies and got my family involved in this 30-day challenge. Even my kids, who despise green veggies, are loving these smoothies. Thanks for all the great recipes! We love trying them.

    When my step-dad was diagnosed with cancer last year, I decided I needed to take a hard look at my health. I had put on weight and was not even close to eating what was good for my body. I started making myself smoothies for breakfast as a way to kickstart my “healthy living”. Pretty quickly, I found I was getting bored with my go-to recipe. Shortly afterward, I stumbled upon your 30-day challenge and have kept up the green smoothie-a-day for 9 months. It was the catalyst to changing my relationship with food. I switched to clean eating, lost 20 pounds in three months and have re-found my love of running. I’ve even signed up to run the NY Marathon for a cancer charity. Thankfully, my step-dad is now in remission, and I’m happy to say his illness and your challenge have truly changed my life.

    Absolutely love the challenge. It’s my first time at it and I convinced my family in India to do it with me. It’s been a phenomenal change in these past 15 days. My skin is glowing. I feel energetic and healthy and I absolutely love the taste of healthy, filling, cold green smoothies. You guys rock. Cheers to the rawkstar team. Thank you Jadah and Jen for starting this lovely little community 🙂

    I basically just started because of the July challenge, and I happen to be housesitting for a month at a place with a Vitamix (so I don’t have my own blender yet, so would love to win this one!) I have generally developed sugar cravings in the afternoon, but since doing the smoothie challenge, I drink a smoothie during that time period, and it has really cut down on the intensity of my sugar cravings.

    Before taking the Green smoothie challenge, I had MAJOR digestive issues. I knew I wasn’t getting enought fiber but it was just so hard to get myself to actually eating the fruits and vegetables. Now I easily get all my daily nutritional needs. I no longer have digestive problems AND I crave healthier foods. Green smoothies have not only been a life-changer for me but for my family as well, I cook healthier for my family now subsequently so they are also getting all the nutrition they need. Plus it’s so easy to whip up my 6 month old sons purreed food while I’m making my daily smoothies! This has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for me and my family!

    Green smoothies have helped me reach my nutrition goals! I can easily get fruits and veggies in and I don’t even notice that I am eating something healthy.
