    I have signed up for the 30 day Challenge… I have researched it. I really want to start. I do not have the money to buy a really good blender. I tried blending with my old, beat-up blender and it left chunks. Even though my juice tasted good but I couldn’t enjoy it. I really need a new, top-of-the-line blender!!! My mom passed away September 2012 and since then, Ive been worried about my health and wanting to lose weight and feel great. This blender will help a lot!!!! 🙂

    I would LOVE the chance to upgrade my blender. The ninja… gets it done alright… but I am sure the high speed stuff would be even better!

    Every time I would see ANY kind of green food that isn’t normally green it would turn my stomach. (i.e. Green eggs and ham) YUCK! But then I found this site and how “yummy” green smoothies seemed. So, I stepped out of my shell to try one. And the moment I did, I fell in love. I love creating new recipes and being able to get all the nutrition all in one go. Whenever I would plan to eat more fruits and veggies I could never stick with it. But green smoothies make it so easy! To start the day with a healthy green smoothie helps me choose healthier foods all throughout the day. This has also helped me lose weight as I prepare to start trying to get pregnant with my first. THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!!!

    Green Smoothies have changed our lives in so many ways! As a mom of four and a cancer survivor, I understand the importance of nutrition for my family’s health. Still, I was skeptical about these glowing green concoctions. When I saw the kids slurping down their greens, I was amazed and you made a believer out of me! Now our crazy mornings run much more smoothly(no pun intended!) as we run out the door with breakfast in a cup. I pour the leftovers into Popsicle molds for an icy afternoon treat. Even the baby loves the green goodness and I have enough energy to keep up with my kiddos! Many thanks to Jadah and Jen!

    I’ve been drinking green smoothies for about 9 months now. I’ve lost 30 pounds, my blood work came back awesome. My triglycerides, liver enzymes and cholesterol are all in the good range for the first time in decades. I have had GERD very bad for a decade or two..and now that is nearly gone. My Doctor asked me what I had been doing different. I told her, and she wanted to start adding them to her diet too!!

    So happy that I decided to add Green Smoothies to my daily routine.

    My husband, daughter & myself have been doing green smoothies every day for the past month. We feel so good knowing we have started out our day in a healthy way. My daughter is a competitive swimmer and has incorporated green smoothies into her daily training. She incorporates extra protein in hers and even uses them in between two-a-day training sessions. The only negative is having to make two blender batches for everyone in the house…because the little kids now don’t want to be left out!

    I am absolutely loving the 30 day challenge! I’m training for a marathon and nutrition plays a key role in the preparation. When I’m out on my long runs, I crave coming back knowing I’m going to have a delicious green smoothie within minutes of finishing. I used to reluctantly add a few leaves of spinach or kale to each smoothie, but now with these delicious recipes they aren’t a chore, they are a treat. And as a busy mom of 4, it’s nice to know that I’ve started my day packed with fruits and veggies, as the rest of the day gets a little hectic. Thanks so much for your website and recipes!

    Finding and joining this site has been such an inspiring and life changing event. Having a smoothie a day has improved my life so much, I feel healthier, more energized and just overall, more happy. I’m not as easily tired or irritated as I was before, and know it’s because the smoothies are helping me to lead a more balanced lifestyle. My husband, who does not eat vegetables…at all, even drinks these as well. He may not like it all the time, but he still drinks his serving. He enjoys being more active and happy as well. We both have started snacking less and leading a more healthy lifestyle. I don’t think we will ever go back to the way were before. Thank you for this site and all the delicious recipes. You are awesome. 🙂

    I’m hooked on green smoothies now! Before I only used the same ingredients, but this challenge has shown me lots of new and delicious ways to make healthy smoothies! I also steam my kale or spinach before blending. So far, my and my husband’s favorite is the Coco-Cherry Berry Cooler! The cinnamon is amazing! Thanks for this giveaway!

    I am loving these green smoothies! Normally I would just skip breakfast, then overeat at lunch. Now, I barely want lunch! These are so filling and delicious! I have already figured out the ingredients that suit me best, and am loving all the recipes. Many of which I never would have thought of to use in a smoothie. It feels great having veggies every morning now:) Thanks ladies! My fancy Oster is holding up just fine so far, thank goodness.

    I have noticed improvements in my performance as an athlete, I feel better about both my appearance and general attitude towards life, I wake up feeling more energized, and have seen improvements in my skin, hair, and nails. People have told me I look slimmer and that my eyes look more “alive.” Overall, they have vastly increased the quality of my life, and I cannot thank you guys enough for that.

    Green smoothies haven’t only changed my life but also my family’s life. Being a young mom of two very picky eaters it’s not easy to get the kids to eat anything green. One thing my kids do like are smoothies. I figured I could skip out on waiting in line at Jamba Juice and just make my own smoothies. That’s when green smoothies entered my life. The only problem was the color. By adding in blueberries and changing the color from green to their favorite color purple the girls LOVE their smoothies! We have a green(purple) smoothie everyday for breakfast. I wouldn’t want to start my morning any other way.

    This is my first time doing the 30 day challenge, I convinced my mom to do it with me. It has been great , I feel better and have more energy. I walk to her house every morning toting my green smoothie ingredients. It has been great doing this with my mom who for medical reason needs to get herself back into shape so I’m glad I signed up and can help her reach her goals.

    Green smoothies changed my life by helping me become a healthier person all around. I was going down a path that wouldn’t end well. Didn’t eat right, was lazy, gaining weight like it was nothing, depressed, you name it. Once I started my green smoothies I felt more energized to do more like exercise and clean and keep busy. I also didn’t crave bad foods 24/7. Started losing weight and feeling better about myself and just overall happier in life. These smoothies are seriously a miracle worker! Can’t get enough of them!

    I haven’t been doing green smoothies for too long but I already notice a huge difference. They’re not just healthy but also delicious. I’m someone who never likes to eat fruits and vegetables and I overall felt unhealthy. Since drinking the smoothies I feel like I’m finally doing something right with my body. I have 2 kids under 2. One is 16 months and the other is 1 month. They’re easy to make in the morning and give me that energy boost I need to survive the day! My 16 month old even loves them. I got tired of her stealing mine so she gets a small smoothie in her sippy cup. It makes me feel good to know that she’s getting the nutrients that she needs. It’s something good to supplement her Eggo in the morning. I really don’t want to stop and I’m dreading the day my current blender bites the dust from me using it so much. With 2 kids I can’t afford a new one, let alone a high quality one like a blendtec. Thank you so much for the opportunity to try to win one!
