    Green smoothies have given me the opportunity to sneak in the necessary nutrients to my 4 very picky, non-loving green veggie children! We even have increased the ratio now to mostly veggies in our smoothies and they still LOVE them! And the icing on the cake, now they will eat raw veggies more! Thanks for all of the wonderful recipes!! We are now a family of RAWKSTARS!!!

    The 30 day challenge has really helped make my smoothie options more exciting, so I am inspired to drink one every day. They’re WAY more energizing in the morning than the 2 cups of coffee I’d been having. They don’t leave me with coffee breath, either, so I’m sure somebody appreciates it. I just read an article the other day on NPR about certain foods that were nutrient dense and reduced stress. Several smoothie ingredients were on that list, so that’s a bonus! I’ve lost about 3lbs so far, too, without being hungry after my smoothie. Love it!

    Green smoothies have changed my life dramatically. I don’t crave as much sweets anymore and help me eat more vegetables. Without a green smoothie in the morning my day is not the same!

    Green smoothies are a great way to get my nutrients in, especially on hectic days when I might not otherwise eat so well.

    Green smoothies have inspired me to start to love my body again and want to take care of it, the way it deserves to be cared for. I have introduced my daughters to them and now they practically beg me to make them a smoothie as an after-school treat! It makes me so happy to know that I’m setting the foundation for my daughters to love their bodies and fill them with healthy food.

    I started the green smoothie challenge this past winter as a tool to help lose the baby weight after my second son was born. I lost 13 pounds that month! What I didn’t expect was the additional energy they give me to not only care for my baby but also keep up with my three year old. I have participated in each subsequent challenge and purchased the kit of recipes. I’m hooked!

    Green Smoothies have help me and my husband make better meal/snack choices and have increased our energy. We both love salty fried food and drinking a smoothing with/for breakfast we are full all morning long and don’t need the mid morning “treat” to get us through to lunch. Our dog loves it as we have more energy to play and take him for longer walks!

    Green smoothies have made me feel energetic, cheerful, like I am getting a nutritious meal and they have tremendously helped my digestion! Thank you for doing this challenge. I have so many new recipes I love that I will continue to blend up once the challenge is complete.

    Green smoothies have changed my life in such a positive way! I no longer worry about whether or not I’m getting enough fruits, veggies, and nutrients on a daily basis, because I know for sure I am! And it’s SO easy! I don’t have to worry about what to eat, or what to put on the grocery list! I’ve even converted some of my family members, and a bunch of us had green smoothies everyday on our family vacation this year! Couldn’t do without them!

    How have green smoothies have changed my life? Well, I’m finally getting my husband and I closer to eating the recommended veggies per day. We are terrible at eating our veggies and now we are at least getting them for breakfast and with a salad with dinner. I originally started researching green smoothies when my doctor told me that I needed to loose weight and stop eating so much bread and sweets or I would become diabetic. So this has been a HUGE help with that and I feel better too!

    It curbs my sweet craving in the morning! I’m a sucker for pancakes, muffins and dounuts, but is much easier to resist once I’ve had my filling smoothie. My kids also love them, so I normally split the second serving between them. Keeps them quiet and happy in the stroller while we run in the morning!
