    I love GREEN SMOOTHIES!!! They give me energy and help me feel my best. I don’t cook a whole lot, so green smoothies allow me to increase my fruits and vegetables intake without a ton of extra effort. I have some food sensitivities, so they help me stay on track and feeling great.

    Green smoothies have allowed my wife and I to start our day off right. We’re trying to work, manage a new home (and all the fun that comes with that…) and take care of a newborn. Without the green smoothies to kick off our mornings, we wouldn’t be able to have enough fuel to last to lunch… and forget the rest of the day!

    I’m a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful, ACTIVE boys- I need every ounce of energy I can get! The green smoothie challenge makes me feel like I’m doing something good for my body every time I drink them. My two year old loves to help make and drink the “smoooooothies” too!

    Green smoothies have changed my life in so many ways. 1. I have noticed a significant change in my overall health. I am not sick as often and if I do get sick, it doesn’t last nearly as long as before. 2. I am glowing! My skin, hair, and overall appearance is so healthy. I feel so radiant and confident. 3. I am keeping weight off and I feel fabulous!

    I have really loved doing the green smoothie challenge! I love having a variety of yummy recipes to choose from that make it easy to do every day. I really notice a difference in the way I feel when I have a green smoothie every day – especially my mood and my energy. My 9 month old loves to share my green smoothie – still trying to convert the rest of the family!

    Jadah & Jen,
    I want to thank you for starting me on my green smoothie kick. Not to sound cliché, but it has really changed my life. I was an athlete in high school and college, averaging 2-3 hours of physical activity 5-6 days a week. Once I started working and began going to grad school at nights, my physical activity dropped to maybe once a week if I was lucky. I was eating fast food and exercising so infrequently that when I did I was prone to injury and chronic back pain (which is the worst!) which led to less frequent exercise and quickly gained weight. I had never been one to diet as I had generally been active enough to not need to, but I knew I needed to make a change. I had heard about green smoothies and wanted to try it out and google led me to this site, which I was super happy about. I bought myself a nutri-bullet and started a 30-day challenge. The added energy gave me the motivation to get back into the gym and exercise more regularly. I have since dropped the weight I gained and am in better shape now than I was in college (~10 years later). The biggest advantage to me is that I am no longer getting injured and my back pain has gone away. Just adding green smoothies to my diet in the mornings and core strengthening has got me feeling better than ever. It all started from this website, inspired by people I didn’t even know. I have shared this site and green smoothies with anyone who will listen. 🙂 Thanks again!

    When I give my body the natural materials it needs to grow and heal, it tingles with excitement. I am so grateful for the abundant gift of fruits and vegi’s Mother Nature provides which fill my green smoothies. It makes my heart happy to see so many people choosing health.

    Finding this website and these smoothies is the only thing that got my life changed around. I could never exercise (always felt terrible afterwards or not even motivated start) until I started packing in the awesome nutrition from these smoothies. I have loved sharing these with my grandparents who now make them themselves and my co-workers. I don’t know where I’d be without my green smoothies!!

    with having a young baby it’s hard to get all the nutrition I need for breastfeeding and green smoothies are a quick, easy way to accomplish that.

    Green smoothies have changed my life in America! I’m a Brazilian girl living in th US, and since I moved I started gaining weight really fast. After 10 months, I decided to change my life and started the green smoothie challenge. It was the best thing I could’ve done to my body! As I’m a tap dancer, I need to be in shape, and now I also feel how my energy levels have changed!

    I recently completed the 10 day Green Smoothie Cleanse, and then I signed up for your July Green Smoothie challenge. I have lost approx 10 lbs and I feel fantastic! I have never been a veggie or fruit person, but now I can’t wait to try new smoothie recipes. They taste great and give me so much energy. I am so happy I made this choice. I have truly made a life style change with my eating habits for the better. Thank you.

    Green smoothies have changed my life b/c I’m no longer grazing through the kitchen every afternoon looking for something sweet…and grazing on further b/c I can’t quite find what I’m looking for! Now, I whip up a green smoothie in the afternoon, and I find just what I’m looking for, and I feel so much better about this healthy decision!

    Green smoothies have changed my life because they give me so much energy. I look forward to them after my workout every day. I love getting my day going with such a huge amount of greens. It helps me make healthier decisions all day long. Green smoothies helped me when I was pregnant to get all my nutrition in, in a very easy and tasty way. Words really can’t express how green smoothies have changed my life. I was very overweight before and have been able to lose so much weight with smoothies. Thank you for all these fabulous recipes! You guys are awesome and are helping so many people!

    I am so surprised that it didn’t take me any time to change from whats for breakfast to start drinking green smoothies for breakfast. And I’m loving it I’ve needed to lose weight for a long time and I have been working on it, with not the results I wanted just lots of sore muscles. I’m excited to be doing something my body needs and not taking something that was not healthy. Thanks

    Having a green smoothie each morning gives me an energy boost to start the day. I love getting so many servings of fruits and vegetables right away in the morning! =)

    Green smoothies are not only delicious but nutritious. It took some trial and error but I discovered smoothies I loved and those I hated. Each one was an experience and I didn’t regret one sip. I have done your challenges with friend and alone and always prefer them with friends because we motivate and encourage each other and stay on track. I consider myself a lifer green smoothie drinker and don’t think I will ever go a few days without drinking one. Keep ascending!
