    I love green smoothies. I work an average of 14 hours per day and since deinking green smoothies regularly my energy level has literally sky-rocketed. I never thought this was possible. Thanks for the free challenges.

    Green smoothies helped me weather the effects of radiation for cancer treatment with minimal impact. I was able to play with my children and go on outings with them during the entire 6 weeks of treatment and even the doctors remarked that I was doing better than expected. I would show up every day for my treatment, green smoothie in hand, while everyone else was clutching their coffees and sodas. I must say I converted a few of them when they saw how well I was doing compared to others.

    I stumbled upon this website maybe a year ago and have been forever changed. Along with incorporating green smoothies into my life. I’ve helped my family members to make some healthy changes and my niece and nephew who i watch often love Green smoothies now too! 🙂 I used to need pop with caffeine for a boost most days but now I just mix up green smoothies in different ways to get the most from the veggies and fruit I’m blending. My awesome find, $20 blender from Target bit the dust two days ago and I’ve been looking around for a new blender keep up the good practice i’ve developed without having to break the bank on my recent grad paying back loans budget. All in All I’d still weight nearly 287 and depressed. Instead I’m excited about life my weight is readily decreasing and I’m smiling more with each day and a clear complexion.

    Joining this challenge has reinforced the importance of discipline. Simply one green smoothie per day. It has given me a small goal that I look forward to completing. Along with the satisfaction of knowing I accomplished my goal, making green smoothies has shown me how creative I can be with my food. Additionally, I’m using all natural and healthy ingredients so I don’t feel guilty afterward. So far, this has been more than adding fruit and greens in a blender, it is a step out of my typical box.

    Not only does having a green smoothie first thing in the morning give me energy and serve as a catalyst for healthy choices throughout my whole day, but it’s a great conversation starter! I so often hear, “WHAT are you drinking?!” It’s fun to share the good green smoothie gospel and exchange recipes with friends, family and co-workers.

    I start my day with a green smoothie now, after finding your site. I’d tried other recipes, but it wasn’t until I found you guys that I really fell in love with my “Greens”! Now I have one on the way to work and one as a snack in the afternoon. My energy, mood, and overall health has been better since I started. I can definitely tell how sluggish I am when I am running late and skip a smoothie!

    Green smoothies are awesome! They are a great way for me to get my picky kids to eat more veggies and fruits… I make smoothie pops for them and get my greens, too!

    Everyone I know talks about green smoothies so I wanted to try them but they looked so, well, you know “green.” I tried a simple recipe from your site and just loved the taste. So easy to just throw some spinach and fresh/frozen fruit in the blender. The best thing though is I did a blind taste test with my son and he loved them. He loves fruit but only a few veggies so I’m really happy to be getting some extra veggies in him. Thanks!

    My wife and I became Rawkstars in January and have enjoyed a green smoothie, sometimes 2, everyday since. Our 5 year old twins have joined in too as they love to put all the ingredients in our small bullet and make them with us. They love them just as much as we do. I am glad that I saw a friend share this on her facebook page for if not, I would not be enjoying my veggies in a tasty way. Spread the word and share it with your friends!

    I recently started getting my health under control, working out and eating better, and I have been making green drinks in the mornings instead of cereal or bagel, etc.. This has helped me lose some weight, get my sugar under control and I can’t believe how much more energy and how I just really feel better! I was diagnosed with liver disease several months ago and this appears to also be helping. My blender is not so good, so this would be awesome.

    Green smoothies are a great (and super easy!) way to get in some nourishing ingredients daily. In my work as a nurse, I am so thankful that I can prep a smoothie in advance and have it readily available when I need a little pick me up. Thanks for making it so easy with your shopping lists and recipes! 🙂

    I have always been a very picky eater with extreme texture issues and, therefore, a very limited diet. My mom struggled through my entire childhood, attempting desperately to get vegetables into me with no success. Now, as an adult, I know I need the nutrients but still struggle to eat many healthy foods. I have arthritis, and am also very sensitive to both gluten and dairy. Green smoothies were the solution for a lot of my troubles! Drinking a green smoothie is the perfect way for me to get the ‘greens’ I need in my diet, without having to deal with the taste and texture issues. Not only that, but I started replacing what would normally be a very unhealthy meal or snack with a green smoothie in my routine. As a result, I avoid eating the gluten-filled foods that would make me feel horrible, and my body and joints feel a thousand times better!

    I would LOVE to win this blender. It would make my smoothie-making process so much easier, as right now mine are always lumpy… And would also make my life much easier as it would help out a ton with my homemade baby food process!

    Green smoothies have changed my life!!! I have more energy, I have lost weight, my skin is glowing, my nails are stronger and longer… And I’m sure the benefits will continue to surprise me.

    Thanks for your email newsletters and the work that you do. And thanks for this contest! I hope I win!

    My husband is not a big “green food eater” so I’m always looking for ways to encourage him to eat more greens. When I found your website I thought jackpot!! He was a little skeptical at first, but now he loves them and has them almost every day before going to work :)! My 5 year old also loves them. Thank you :)!!!!

    Green smoothies have really helped me improve my nutrition. I have more energy and have been able to break the coffee habit. I’m less bloated and just feel lighter since I’ve made green smoothies a regular part of my day.

    Green Smoothies have made me feel so much better and I sware help me sleep. I try to be healthy in my eating and activities but notice how much a green smoothie in the morning makes those choices through out the rest of my day so much easier. I love whipping up a green smoothie. I even got my best friend and mom hooked when I demanded we all have one for breakfast while on vacation last week.

    I used to drink 4 coffees to get me through the work day, and even more when doing overtime. Now I just drink a green smoothie in the morning and I feel energized and focused through out the day. And I don’t drink coffee anymore, unless it’s a quality one with friends over vegan brunch. 🙂
