    Since becoming vegetarian a few years back i have struggled with getting the right amount of nutrients (im not the biggest vegetable fan lol). Being able to blend a large amount of vegetables i otherwise wouldn’t eat into a smoothie has been great! I get to drink a delicious smoothie and feel good about it! I’m no longer as tired as i use to be and i owe a big part of that to consuming green and nutrient rich smoothies!

    Green smoothies have changed my life because they have helped me lose more than 20 pounds (and keep them off) since April and have given me so much energy. I love being able to drink my nutrients in a delicious and fun way. They have definitely changed my life and inspired me to share them with all of my friends and family. =)

    I’ve always had bad luck with making smoothies on my own, but thanks to you guys, it’s been way easier and love how you pick the ingredients based on its availability. Thanks for all your hard work!

    I started the green smoothie challenge at the beginning of July (2 weeks ago) and they are delicious and filing. I finding them so easy to make and I love that I can make 2 servings at one time! I am craving them every day now!

    I am absoulutely in love with the green smoothie challenges & recipes. The green smoothies offer pure nutrition and are much more nutritional than fruit or vegetable juices. It is a great way to eat your veggies without even realizing it. The recipes are quick and easy to make. Homemade green smoothies are also cheaper. I love the lasting source of energy it gives me. I also completed the 21 day cleanse in June. I loved it! Thank you for helping me change my eating habits, dropping caffeine from my everyday life, & helping me drop 15 pounds between the smoothie challenges and cleanse! 😉

    I love green smoothies! Now, I don’t love kale, but a month ago I wouldn’t have even known that 🙂

    I love how great I feel after a morning smoothie! Energized, recharged, rehydrated. I like how creative you can get with smoothies! A bit of sunshine every morning!

Great doctor results and I have sooooo much energy! Constant energy! Will never leave in the morning without my green smoothie! 🙂

    Green smoothies have changed my life for the better in so many ways! I am on week 3 now, and in these 3 weeks:

    * My clothes fit better!
    * My skin is clearer!
    * I feel better!
    * I don’t crave sugar as much!
    * I am healthier!
    * My 13 yr. old daughter, who has joined me in this, is also healthier!

    Finally an acceptable way to have fresh fruits and veggies, which we just could not ever seem to do!

    Thank you so much,
    Lori Hobbs

    A year ago awaiting surgery I discovered I was anemic. As a sr. citizen, I do not expect to be a dynamo, but neither am I ready to be ‘one foor in…’ either. Recently I suddenly began the same symptoms of weariness, lack of energy etc. About the same time I discovered your Green Smoothie website–it became my lifesaver. Your simple, well defined program brought me from lethargic, constantly fighting to get up off the chair, to having my old MOJO and being able to function again. Thank you for simple to use recipes etc. BUT I do need a decent blender to get the chunks out of my ‘drinks’. THANK YOU AGAIN. Green Smoothies have given me my ‘life’ back again.

    My wife and I started our own green smoothie challenge on June 1st using the recipes posted by Jadah and Jen on simplegreensmoothies.com. We liked them so much that we subscribed to the official 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge. It just keeps getting better! Using the smoothies to supplement our diet, while making a few additional dietary changes, has enabled my wife and I to lose a total of 40lbs together (16lbs and 24lbs respectively) in the past 45 days.

    Thanks for such a great site! I’ve been recommending the challenge to all my friends.

    Green smoothies are a staple in my sons diet. He has severe reflux and allergies to both dairy and gluten… And to top it off- he’s the pickiest eater in the world!!! They changed his life by allowing him to eat without having acid eating away at his esophagus(meds don’t help him)! Unfortunately- our blender broke a few weeks ago and we have been struggling to find funding for a new one. This would be a blessing for our my sweet little guy!!

    Late this winter, two of my co-workers did the Fresh Start 21 cleanse. I watched in amazment as they both transformed over those 3 weeks. I decided that I wanted to give it a shot, and was amazed at the results. I lost 20 pounds while on the cleanse, and have lost another 10 pounds since. I now start each day with a green smoothie of some kind, and I love it. I had no idea what a huge difference the simple task of having a green smoothie in the morning would be. As if the weight loss isn’t enough of a motivator, I have more energy, my mood is better, and my skin is clearer. I’ll never go back to my old habits!!

    I always thought of myself as a “good” eater. Not too picky, love my fruits and veggies, indulging in sweets sparingly etc. It wasn’t until February 14th of this year that I really took a look at my health and eating habits… on Valentine’s Day, one of the surgeons who removed a mass from my uterus a week earlier called… “you have cancer”. Those words still hang in a quiet spot of my mind, even though I am two months cancer free today. I started a 22 hour, biweekly chemotherapy treatment regimen and my body started changing and reacting to those toxic drugs in horrible ways. I started researching about cancer, about foods, how to fuel your body… I did the green smoothie challenge before but never really took the time to look into how amazing greens (and fruits/veggies) could really be! It wasn’t about “eating good” it was about having a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE… fueling my cells, my body with the nutrients and minerals it needs to thrive and fight. Spices, herbs, greens became a staple in my house. My two year old daughter even loves to make “green juice” with mommy. The blender we have is functional; but because I have been using it at least twice a day, the cheap functionality of it is becoming more apparent. It is getting harder to make nut butters or to completely blend the kale or spinach for our smoothies. We are a sugar free home, and instead I make my own date paste as a substitute. That has almost become impossible with this dinky blender of ours. Even though cancer is a word no one ever wants to hear, I am thankful for the opportunity to be able to step back and really look at my life and what I was putting into my families bodies. I am so thankful I had the ability and the will to change our lifestyle in a much healthier way. Cancer did more for me than just being a horrible diesease… it opened my eyes and changed my perspective on life; all life. It was the best, worst experience of my life.

    Joining the green smoothie lifestyle has been positive for me in more ways than diet. The education to Superfoods, Raw foods, Oils and their health benefits is rich and encouraging. Being a comfortable in the kitchen has been a great foundation to experimenting with recipes and sharing the love with the people who’ve never made or drank a green smoothie.! My skin looks great and I feel fabulous.

    My daughter-in-law was staying with me while my son was deployed. She said she wanted to try these green smoothies but she didn’t want to do it alone. She told me all about them and I agreed to do it with her. It is the best thing I have ever done. I work 2 jobs and don’t have a lot of time to cook. I have a smoothie for breakfast. I eat lunch, not always as healthy as I should. And then I have a smoothie for dinner on my way to my second job. I feel so much better. I have lost weight while drinking these. I have been drinking green smoothies for a year now. I thank my daughter-in-law for turning me on to green smoothies. If I don’t have my smoothies I feel yucky. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes and support.

    The Simple Green Smoothie challenge has rawked my world! In just a couple weeks of the challenge, I’m already feeling more energetic and have fewer tummy troubles than ever – and I’ve had a lifetime of gut issues. Here’s proof in the pudding…I way overate the wrong kinds of foods at the beach last weekend and felt sluggish and just generally blah. Two days of Simple Green Smoothies has me on the mend and carefully considering what I put in my mouth from this point on! I started the challenge for the health benefits, but I’ve lost weight, too – BONUS!
