    Green smoothies have increased my metabolism, the have giving my skin a fresher and youthful look. Green smoothies have helped to cut my craving for sweets. Once I saw what they were able to do for me I started my 90 year old mother on them as well. They have improved her kidney function and allowed her to stop takin her potassium pills. She also has more energy now and is not so dependent on her walker. Green smoothies has definitely changed bout of our lives .

    I love your green smoothies and you 21 day cleanse. I feel amazing! I share your website with everyone! Drinking a smoothie for breakfast is the only way to start my day and my husband insists on one also! I feel energized, clearheaded, healthier and have lost 8 pounds! Bonus!!! The blender would be a great way to make a double batch of smoothie. I use a bullet now. Only one smoothie at a time. 🙁

    I discovered this website during week 3, but I am determined to do the full 30 days so I am now on day 2. So far, so good. After getting past the color, I have discovered how yummy these are. It is amazing how fruits and veggies create such wonderful flavors; makes me wonder why I every enjoyed drinking syrup laced drinks. Anyway, winning this blender would help me get out the door faster in the mornings, since my current blender is having a difficult time with the frozen fruits. It would be an honor to take home the Blendtec Designer 725 + WildSide Jar!!

    I started your 30-day Green Smoothie Challenge in January and it has changed my life and my outlook on food. I’ve lost 10 lbs, have more energy, and feel more healthy. I love that I can make two green smoothies and put one in the fridge for later. I’m a busy mom and busy with my career, so I rarely have time to make something healthy in the middle of the day. I love that I can grab my smoothie and be on my way, rather than grabbing something unhealthy to snack on. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful advice, personal stories and yummy recipes!

    Trying a green smoothie for the first time was a little scary – I didn’t want to drink my salad! But after that first sip – BOOM. I jumped right into the 30-day green smoothie challenge saddle. Now drinking a smoothie a day with my breakfast, I feel more full and I love the burst of fruit flavors in the early hours of my day – which often starts at 4am! Thanks for inspiring and encouraging me to join the green smoothie community – I’m here to stay!

    I found your website by accident, really, back in March of this year and I was hooked! I joined the April 30 Day Challenge but was so excited to start making green smoothies, I began in March and haven’t stopped drinking green smoothies daily. My husband and twelve year old daughter are on board too! I even made green smoothies and placed in a cooler to take on a 3 day road trip – just so we wouldn’t have to go without. Now my mother-in-law and a couple of co-workers are drinking green smoothies! I feel so much better knowing we are getting the daily recommended servings of fruit and vegetables.

    From a skeptic. I had tried some smoothy recipes in the past and had to chew them.. *gags* While trying to choke down the end result I gave up. When I found this smoothie challenged I decided lets try it again after reading about your experiences. I have been doing the smoothies for breakfast/on my way to work. The wonderful thing is I found the right blend of ingredients and found the secret of putting the greens and liquid together first quite helpful. I am now fufilled throughout the morning until lunch. I don’t feel bloated. I am not having afternoon food cravings for sweets and I have a super amount of energy. I am looking forward to continuing with this after the challenge is over.

    Hello my fellow smoothie lovers!

    There’s a million ways smoothies have changed my life but I’ll stick to just a few of them. 🙂

    First of all, smoothies have inspired me to become more creative not just in the blender but also in the kitchen cooking. As I started researching the benefits of smoothies, I realized I was missing out on life by eating plain cereal in the mornings.
    When I started making smoothies they were very plain but soon enough I learned how to get extremely creative and became more adventurous! I started adding ground chia seeds instead of whole because aspiring to be a smoothie expert makes you do the research on what’s the best out there! I learned that ground chia seeds are actually much healthier for you because your body is able to easily absorb the nutrients, whereas the whole seeds can pass through the digestive tract without picking up the nutrients you’re looking for.
    My favorite greens to add are the “Power Greens” you can buy from Whole Foods or Costco. They taste amazing with anything! I add a little coconut water, organic berries, and coco nibs for a little sweet tooth kick.

    Since I started making smoothies, I have seen my waist slim down and it also keeps me going through the mornings. I get a lot of natural sugars from the fruit so I have that instead of coffee. I am the type of coffee drinker that has to have the vanilla creamer so I am glad I have found a great and healthy alternative.
    My digestive tract also loves smoothies. I don’t want to give too much information lol, but it is very important to make sure your body is releasing toxins and I always feel better on the days I make smoothies.
    Smoothies have also helped me waste less food. Normally, the amount of fruit and especially vegetables I’m supposed to consume each day can be a hard achievement. Smoothies have allowed me to pile on the vegetables and meet my daily goals!
    Another thing I love about smoothies is that it is a great conversation starter. When I bring them to class, I always get quiet a few onlookers curious about what I am drinking. Just yesterday, I brought one to class and my professor came up to me and we had a five-minute conversation about my smoothie. I told him what in it and the health benefits of each item. He seemed totally into it and I love when I can inspire people to try something new!

    Now fingers crossed I win the Blendtec! Thanks for reading Simple Green Smoothies!

    Green smoothies have changed my life in so many ways! From weight lose to overall health. My skin and hair are 100 times better than they were before. They give me the natural energy that I need to chase my two year old son without popping pills or reaching for an energy drink! Finding simple green smoothies was the best thing I could have done for myself! Thank you!

    I never used to eat breakfast until I started drinking green smoothies. They are the perfect way for me to start my mornings right and get the nutrition and fuel I need. The best part is, my husband and kids love them too!

    I’m a long distance runners and green smoothies have helped me to get the nutrients I need to perform at my highest ability. They have also helped me replace unhealthy snacks with smoothies full of fruits and veggies. I love that Jadah and Jen provide me with great smoothies so I can keep mixing it up and don’t get bored with smoothies. I recommend the 30-day challenge to lots of people because it tastes good, and it makes you feel good!

    I wish I would’ve discovered green smoothies years ago!! This year for me, has been all about growth. Mentally, spiritually and physically. Since partaking in the green smoothie challenge at the beginning of summer, I am on my way to a healthier lifestyle. I’ve lost weight, I feel brighter, lighter and most importantly healthier than I have in a long time! Since incorporating these simple, yet delicious recipes into my life, I’ve noticed an overall improvement mentally and physically.

    I have finally found a way to get fruit and vegetables into my fiancé who is a pizza/hoagie loving eater. Thanks for the challenge , other than his suspicion of the green color he is enjoying the freshness and taste of the smoothie. I have convinced these are better than milkshakes he normally drinks… I guess he must really love me

    As a small business owner, I’m constantly on the go or working late hours at my studio. My green smoothies mixed with a little vegan protein powder keeps me on track and away from the fast food restaurants when I’m working late or forgot to pack myself a lunch. It’s the first step in ensuring that my health becomes a priority in my life by getting the nutrients I need on a daily basis. Thanks to everyone on your Simple Green Smoothie team for being such an inspiration and providing wonderful recipes and tips on this wonderful journey.
