    I have spent a lifetime not getting enough vegetables in my diet. Until I started green smoothies I seriously doubt I received a daily dose of vegetables even one day of my life. While I was hoping weight loss would be the result that unfortunately has not occurred to much extent. However, there is a big difference in how I feel. I have much more energy and stamina and just feel fantastic. I started back in May and as an experiment I stopped them for about 10 days and the difference was remarkable. My energy bottomed out and I had no get up and go. I am back on smoothies with this challenge and feeling much better. I have my smoothies down to 80% veggies and 20% fruit (just enough to sweeten it). Your recipes and tips are fantastic! Keep it up and thank you for the opportunity to win one of these fantastic blenders. Being economically challenged I had to settle for a cheaper blender and it does an okay job but one of these would be like heaven. Thank you again.

    I love the Green Challenges and it’s change the way I eat. It’s great to start off the day with a health smoothie. Never thought I’d have kale for breakfast! Best part is I got my sister and 16-year old son drinking green smoothies too!

    Green smoothies started as a 30 day challenge and have become a way of life. They are an exceptional way to start the day and the health benefits are incredible. Some benefits I have experienced are… Improved sleep, reduced acne, improved overall digestion and increased energy. I started with green smoothies after reading the book Green for Life. (An excellent read about what the green smoothies are doing for your body) The 30 day challenge has made green smoothies much more practical and accessible. I love the grocery lists that come with the recipes… And did I mention, the recipes are delicious! Keep up the great work, ladies!!

    The energy I get from green smoothies is amazing! I feel great, I love incorporating new things I’ve never tried before into them & I enjoy shopping for everything & seeing all the colors in the cart. Did I mention it’s cheaper than eating out too?!?!

    Since I’ve run across the simple green smoothies website, it has become a part of my daily routine. I feel as if I know the entire Rawkstar Team and have never personally met them. I’ve tried all the trends and fad diets; spent hundreds of dollars on pills and “midnight diets” but I never got the results I wanted. With the help of Jen and Jadah, I’ve lost 34lbs with fruit, veggies, water and exercise! I can’t thank you enough, Jen and Jadah, for your recipies and encouragement. What you are doing for the world is definitely revolutionary. I’m so much happier, I have more energy, my skin is clear and I’m running around with my son without having to take a break every few minutes. I will continue this lifestyle change forever. My 7 yr old son loves the smoothies so my family will continue it as well! Thank you again from thr bottom of my healthy heart ♡

    Our lifestyles these days don’t allow for much time in the day for us to make very nutritious fulfilling meals at least three times a day. Being vegetarian and almost vegan, I have to concentrate on getting lots of grains, proteins, and enough nutrients into my daily diet to make sure I fuel properly and avoid taking supplements. Green smoothies allow to pack so many nutrients and flavors, it’s easy on the go, and I get so many health benefits. I feel energized, healthy, and happier with my lifestyle overall.

    My father is currently in Hospice care for metastasized cancer. I spent the month of May down in Florida, visiting him in a care facility every day. There’s nothing like it to put your own health into perspective. I came home vowing to get serious about my eating habits. Enter the Green Smoothie! The good news, I happen to like spinach and kale, but it is hard to just eat them raw every day. But dedicating one meal a day to a green smoothie is such a fast and easy way to get a healthy dose. I actually started my smoothies a couple of weeks prior to signing up for the 30 days. I am feeling really good and the best part is, they’re so easy to whip up, I have no excuse to stuff my mouth with something like an entire box of mac and cheese. The recipes are delicious and I put mine in a lovely wine glass with a mint garnish to make myself feel special. I am also gaining the confidence to branch out and try different greens, added herbs etc. Fresh mint is a particular favorite. This is a habit I could stick with the rest of my life (and the site is great)!

    Yum! Yum! Yum! I have enjoyed my journey into the green blended jungle! I have always enjoyed my veggies…. Well, not always. Teenagers are the most vulnerable to media and the wonders of fatty carbohydrate foods. A former professor and family friend would say of her children: “They don’t believe there is food in the house unless it has golden arches and 100 grams of fat included.”
    I refused to eat my Mom’s homemade yogurt and sprouts. And, I would pass up her “Lead Bread” as we so “affectionately” called it. Brewers yeast and wheat germ were not my teenage friends. It just wasn’t cool to pull out that stuff at lunch to munch. Much better was the choice to hide it in the locker and starve.
    So. . . I formed terrible health habits dispite my Mom’s best efforts.
    Your “Green Smoothie Challenge” came across my radar at just the right time!
    I have been working to rejuvenate a long past love of unprocessed foods.
    I have lost 10 lbs sipping your recipies! I have learned about hemp protein and other super foods I never met along with falling in love with fresh kale and spinach!!!
    My Ninja blender just doesn’t quite cut that spinach and kale enough to call it a smoothie though and it is losing its power and cracking after only a two year commitment in my home.
    So, my sister has long bragged about the superiority of her Blendtec!!! She also likes the fact it is created close to her home. And she often tells me I should own one too!!! I would love to be a proud new owner of a Blendtec blender!
    Thanks for the smoothie recipes! My family likes it when I stick to your plan. Thank you! My family thanks you and I think I just entered your next challenge!

    Who knew green smoothies could be so amazing?!! Obviously, you did! I am so glad that I have embarked on this green smoothie journey. Since starting, I have been able to regulate my diet and cut out most of the greasy and unhealthy foods I have always indulged in. I have also started to exercise more than 3 days a week. Me?? Running??!? Yes, it has happened! I’m actually training for my first 5K! Drinking green has encouraged me to make a LIFE change. I hope that as my journey to a greener and healthier life continues, I can help encourage and enlighten those around me just like the Simple Green Smoothies Team!

    I have been drinking green smoothies for the past year and your site has changed my life and it has challenged me to do more than just the eat better but become consistent in my desire to lose this weight! I would love to have this blender to take my smoothies to the next level!

    Green smoothies replenish me after a workout – yoga or running and they wake me up in the morning! Having a nutritious breakfast and a nutritious snack has changed the way I crave food and the way I eat. I am healthier, more energized and happier. Today I had pineapple, kale, red apple, cucumber ice and coconut milk. It was delicious!

    Green Smoothies have helped me and my mom get back on track! We have been getting together each week and prepping our smoothies together. It has been great mother/daughter time as we laugh and share stories, worries, frustrations, successes, failures and joy. We love our time together and the health benefits of the green smoothies are just a bonus!! Thank you for creating this rawsome program!! 😉

    I’m already registered for the challenge! Green Smoothies have definitely changed my life. I actually realized this last night, as I stood over my sink hand-washing leaves of Dino kale one by one (worth it- found a little tiny bee looking bug curled up in a nook in one of the leaves), some to use in a right-away smoothie; and two sets to pack away for smoothies later in the week. I packed a bag of kale leaves, cucumber, bell pepper and pepper mint (to which tofu and matcha powder would be added in the blender)- new mixes I’ve learned since seeing the wide range of possibilities through the creative recipes at Simple Green Smoothies. Standing over the sink packing smoothie ziplocs- that is a whole new Dee that I don’t recognize, but definitely like!

    Having green smoothies daily has decreased my sick time. I teach and children always spread their germs to me. However, since starting my smoothies I haven’t been sick.

    I wake up every morning and making my green smoothie is the first thing I do. It’s a great way to start my day and I feel like I begin each day healthy with fruit, vegetables, protein, and fat…well balanced and delicious.
