    I must say since I had joined the green smoothie challenge I had more energy and consumed more greens and fruit then I would ever do in a day! And what puts the icing on the cake the green smoothies are so delicious that my children asks to make them. I had also recommending the green smoothies to my friends and coworkers. I have a few of them actually joined the challenge and signed up for the newsletter. I hope I win that beautiful blender.

    Looooove green smoothies!! They give me the energy I need for the day, and I feel better, inside and out. I can definitely feel the difference on days that I don’t have a green smoothie, which is not often. And with green smoothies, you can be creative and experiment with various fruits & veggies!

    For the past 6 months, I’ve been working crazy long hours and was coming home feeling tired and bloated and cranky and arthritic and hating the way my skin and body looked and felt. I recently saw Jadah speak at a conference in Portland and heard her story and now I am so inspired and excited to join in the Challenge and have a community of awesome people to work with to feel better and get healthy together. I had my first green smoothie yesterday, and I can’t wait to concoct new recipes and share with my friends. Thanks for the refreshing, delicious, healthy inspiration! Who knew that a mason jar and striped straw could make kale so cute?!!!!

    I am new to the world of green smoothies. Have been for about a month now. Prior to becoming such a fan of them, I put up a great defensive wall which is typical for those who haven’t given it a try. My usual excuse would be “ehh.. I don’t like the ingredients.” But with research I came across these two wonderful ladies who have shown me a different side of green smoothies. There’s no turning back for me now. I joined the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge and I am super excited that I joined. They start my mornings off cool and refreshing. You can’t beat that. My all time favorite would have to be kale, pineapples, banana, Greek yogurt, and coconut water. It’s like a taste of Heaven. I can honestly say that I feel healthier, my attitude has changed (Yes! My attidtude), lighter, and am overall more than satisfied with my choice of giving green smoothies a go. If you haven’t already, enlighten a friend on green smoothies. They’ll love you ever – everyone should experience the greatness of green smoothies! 😉

    Green Smoothies did a twist on my health overall. A few months ago, I was diagnosed Sjögren’s syndrome, which was attacking my liver and causing me steatosis. Since I started with green smoothies, my organism, especially the liver has been cleansing and purifying which helps it to auto regenerate. So, I’m feeling pretty good and doctors pretty amazed.

    Green smoothies definitely help me get my daily alloment of fruits and vegetables plus some. I use them after hard workouts and find myself much more hydrated and recovering more quickly.

    Ok, so I started out of the green smoothie gate like a gangbuster… then blender number 1 started slowing down. So I just blended each batch a little longer. Then blender number 1 broke. I was a little sad because I love putting concentrated good health into my body, even if it does have the “gross” factor for my kids. With blender number 1 even slower, I was out of blending business. I tried eating my greens…. NOT THE SAME!!! So a dear friend gave me her old blender we shall name blender number 2! Blender number 2 worked fine and I was back in green smoothie delicious business!!! Then about 3 weeks into blender number 2, it didn’t break…. it exploded!! Green smoothie goodness was all over the counter, down the cabinet, in the drawers and on the floor. It was a terrible mess and blender number 2 was beyond repair. I sent my gf pics of the mess and have been without the capabilities of blending since. Why not just go out and buy another blender you ask… just not in the budget right now. We have a lot of medical bills with 2 of our kids and I can’t skimp there. Congratulations to whoever the lucky winner is!!!

    I’m amazed at how great green smoothies can taste. I was always afraid to add green because I thought it would change the flavor of my smoothies. Now I know they are delicious and help keep me even healthier!!

    Your green smoothie recipes and ideas have been life changing for me and my family of 8. My husband and I have been drinking them faithfully for the past 9 months and have noticed wonderful results (I never got a single cold or illness all winter! and have had much more energy), but I was having a hard time getting my six children (ages 7-18) on board the “green smoothie” dream machine. Then, my 15 year-old got really ill and was diagnosed with ITP–a blood condition that attacks the body’s own platelets, leaving the body in a weak and life-threatening (almost need a blood transfusion). She had to quit dance, cheer leading, and almost every other “fun” activity in her life. She almost had to drop out of school, where she was doing well and earning college credits. I took her to several doctors, who ordered several tests and prescriptions. I felt horrible about giving a 15 year-old girl high dosages of steroids, so my husband and I decided to try our own method instead. My daughter finally agreed to do whatever it took to get her health back. I made her green smoothies every morning before school and usually another one after school. She grew to LOVE these smoothies, because she knew they were helping her feel better. Long story short…. her blood platelets increased on their own without prescriptions, and the doctors were amazed. They thought she’d been taking the prescribed steroids. When I told them we’d been doing green smoothies instead, they just looked at us and said, “Well, I guess it’s working.” My daughter has been getting stronger every day and wouldn’t dream of going a day without her green smoothie. Thank you guys so much for setting me and my family on the right track! It has been a life-changing ride! I’m telling all my friends and family about it. (: This is a habit I will keep for as long as I live!

    I started green smoothies in April. I wanted to change my eating habits and gain energy. I am a teacher and mother to two small children and felt drained in the evenings. I added the smoothie and cut out sugar, caffeine, and dairy for 3 weeks. After 5 days I was a new person. Another teacher shared your challenge and I signed up immediately. The best part is, my husband who was skeptical is doing the challenge with me. I didn’t ask but after tasting them, he now requests that I make extra. My children are also trying the Green Monster as we call it at our house. Thanks for the awesome recipes,,

    I started the 30 day challenge about 2 weeks early and enjoy this great way to “drink” my greens. I am hooked and enjoy them for breakfast occasionally but for evening snacks most days. Thanks for all you ladies do to share with us your “green smoothie” knowledge. It is greatly appreciated.

    I have a green smoothie every morning and feel GREAT! I’ve noticed that my cravings for sweets have decreased. I also got my older son to join the 30 day green smoothie challenge with me and his mood has improved greatly. Thanks,

    This Challenge has been FUN – not sure I’ve ever been able to say that about any other health program I’ve participated in!

    I’m fueling my body better and eating much less. As an overweight gal, this is interpreted as a very good thing! It’s not hard, it’s a quick clean up (much easier than doing dishes from preparing a whole meal!) and I’m getting more done!
    Thanks for the boot in the backside I needed 🙂

    My husband would never touch a smoothie until i tried one of your recipes and he has been very regular without chemicals and he loves them. Thank you for bringing this into our lives. What a game changer♡♡♡♡♡

    Green smoothies have given me more energy, aided my digestion (HELLO!), and given me a sense of wellness. I feel so alive when I have a green smoothie and the best part is that my husband has joined me on the green smoothie bandwagon. I also noticed that I make better food choices throughout the day. I am so glad and blessed to have you two. You have literally changed my life!
