    I love smoothies, yes I do! These smoothies have made me have the energy to get though my days no matter what I have going on. They are simple and delicious! Plus, the recipes make two servings so I can help my husband eat a healthy breakfast too! He never thought a smoothie with leafy greens could be tasty, but now he looks forward to them as much as I do! Thank you!!!

    Now for a green smoothie haiku.

    So green and tasty

    I’ve been doing the green smoothie challenges with you since January of this year and LOVE them. I am not a fan of vegetables and love knowing that I am starting off each day with a big serving of spinach. On days when I skip my green smoothie in the morning, I end up feeling sluggish and make an afternoon smoothie to pick me up. Thank you!

    Started today with a green smoothie for breakfast. What could be better than this amazing mixer?! Would be perfect!
    Thanks for all your amazing recipe ideas!

    LOVE the smoothies. What amazes me most is how satisfying and how long they “stick with you” before hunger hits again. Looking forward to new recipes. And how about some lower carb ones too!

    I have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. I take a ridiculous amount of medication, including self-injections, and nothing was helping. I was in constant pain day in and day out. There were a lot of days when I couldn’t get out of bed, couldn’t stand, couldn’t walk. Then I started drinking green smoothies for breakfast. After a few weeks I felt awesome! I still had some pain so I upped my green smoothie intake to 2 a day, and i significantly increased the amount of greens I was putting in the smoothies. On my 5th week of green smoothies I caught myself walking without pain. I started to cry, I was diagnosed at 24 with RA I’m now 31 and it was the first time in 7 years that I was walking without pain and I owe it all to green smoothies!!

    Green smoothies have made me feel better and also they have made my kids interested in eating better too because they are surprised that they like the taste! They even beg for them from time to time.

    I started green smoothies after reading a post about simplegreensmoothies.com on 100daysofrealfood. I bought the $12.95 ebook, and have been a green smoothie fan ever since! I have one in the morning as my breakfast, and it has replaced my coffee ritual. I have been caffeine free for over a year too! Drinking green smoothies has increased my energy level, decreased my cravings for sweets, and helped with my overall attitude. I can definitely tell a difference if I don’t have one in the morning. I recommend them to everyone, and have encouraged many people to give them a try!! Thank you for all the awesome recipes and encouragement. You girls RAWK!

    Love my daily green smoothie! I know I am getting enough fruits & veggies every day! I have more energy and have really started to workout more at a higher intensity! Starting to lose weight also!

    I was stuck in a routine Monday – Friday where I saw no time for a special diet or any of these “fancy” smoothies I’d see everyone do.
    Then a few weeks ago I was reading an article and came across simplegreensmoothies so I decided to follow and read furthur into it. After liking what I read I decided to give it a try just because I don’t eat veggies and fruits everyday. So I made the time to go shopping for the ingredients and did July 1-6. Then had no money for the next week to continue so I used what I had left. Got paid a few days later and now I’m doing the smoothies from July 7-13. I go to bed making these for the next day and on the weekends wake up making them. They taste so good and it’s changed me because I have now began a new chapter in my life by eating clean with these smoothies. I no longer crave junk food.

    I used to get so upset when I would go into the dressing room. Why? Not because I didn’t like shopping…it was because the iridescent lighting in the rooms showed off how bloated I was, how blotchy my skin looked and even the muffin top that hung over my pants (which for some reason my bathroom mirror reflected more of a runway model whenever I look at myself! LOL!). I stood at 5’6 and weighed over 260lbs…. I was disgusted with myself for eating trash (Hershey’s cookies &cream, biscuits and Cheetos puffs were/are my weakness! ) yet still I found myself wanting more. My waist kept expanding and the numbers on the scale slowly crept up on me. I knew diets would not work, esp. when decreasing my cravings for junk food.

    So instead of continuing with this never ending cycle I decided to reevaluate my intake of good vs. bad calories…and thus set my journey into 2 little words that forever changed my life: Green Smoothie!!!

    It took all my favorite (and not so favorite) super foods and had them in an easy to make & easy to eat/drink form. This decision (plus workouts 4-5 times a week) was 70lbs ago and I will not look back! I have more energy, lost inches; more relaxed/stress free, decreased junk food conception (still working on the cravings), Healthy and Vibrant Glow, cleared complexion, regular/consistent BM and fewer issues (cramping/bloating) during menstruation.

    I can’t scientifically link how drinking a green smoothie 5 days a week has exclusively changed my life but it has made a MAJOR impact in transforming the way I see food, myself and health overall.

    GO GREEN OR GO HOME (or come to my house & I can make you a mean smoothie 🙂 ).

    Doing the Smoothie Challenge has been a game changer for me. Not only does my body feel better but I feel like I am starting the day being good to myself and that really has set the tone for the rest of the day. I keep signing up for the challenge because it keeps me accountable to a community of like-minded folks who all want to take steps to be healthier.

    Drinking green smoothies has totally changed my perspective on healthy living. Eating healthy isn’t as intimidating as I once thought it was. It’s actually fun! – picking new fruits and veggies to throw in my blender, finding new ways to naturally sweeten them and discovering new tasty blends! i’ve learned not to be afraid to try new vegetables now. Not just in smoothies but with my meals. Thank you for these challenges. I have a much happier tummy now! 🙂

    Green smoothies have changed my life! Seriously, I have more energy, better digestion, and I shop healthier! I was not looking for weight loss – just for a change, for health, and natural energy…and I got it!!
