    Simple green smoothies have been just that…SIMPLE. They are easy to make on a tight schedule, nutritious and delicious. I’ve found that having two a day has boosted my vegetable and fruit intake and I no longer crave processed foods. Now I crave simple healthy foods. Simple Green Smoothies has made this change easy and yes….simple!

    I would love to win this Blender!

    Green Smoothies have totally changed my life!! I hate eating greens/vegetables in general. I never had a problem with fruit, but I would constantly struggle to make sure I was getting on my veggies. I looked into juicing, but you waste so much of the produce when you do that. With smoothies you get the entire fruit and veggie (including all of the nutrients!)

    I’m recently retired and have a few health issues. And I’ve also recently become a grandma, so I want to be around a while to enjoy playing horsey, crawling around on the floor and walking to the park with him. So I quit smoking and got on a health regime and these green smoothies not only give me energy but make it seems like I having desert for breakfast!!! This is a life style change that’s gonna last! Thanks!!!

    As a nutritionist, I know the importance of eating your fruit & veggies! But life gets in the way of healthy eating, even though I know how important it is! Green smoothies help keep me on track.

    Green smoothies have become everyday for me….What’s not to love?? Green smoothies are delicious, nutritious and easy to make, and the flavor profile is only limited by your own taste and imagination. I love that in a few simple steps I’ve got a way to get in loads of veggies and fruits. I’ve made a believer of my husband, my sister and one of my friends. Working on converting the world !!!

    I was diagnosed with breast cancer on August 6, 2013 and went through a bi-lateral mastectomy on October 22, 2013 and been going through reconstructive surgery since November 26, 2013. I have been making the long trek from Spokane to Seattle for all my medical needs.
    It’s been hard to eat or drink anything at times, but with Green Smoothies, I find I can drink them throughout my day, as there are numerous flavors I can make depending on what I’m in the mood for, as well as easy on my stomach and quick to make. Even my Doctor said they were a great idea.
    I also like the idea that I can easily take them with me when I go to each of my appointments and can easily make them in my hotel room, as it is fully furnished.
    I have found them delicious, and amazing way to help with getting the nutrients I need daily for my recovery and have been drinking them ever since.
    I find I have a lot more energy during the day and get all the nutrition I need. I will definitely keep drinking them daily…
    Keep the new recipes coming!
    God Bless you both for all your amazing encouragement…

    First, the green smoothies have really helped me use up all the leafy greens that we get in our weekly CSA box – no more wasted veggies/money!

    Second, my one year old LOVES them (as do I). This has been a great way to get him to eat leafy greens since he doesn’t have enough teeth to chew them up raw. My almost three year old is also quite the fan. The only problem is, my husband never gets to to enjoy them because the kids and I drink them before he gets a chance 🙂

    Finally, being pregnant the green smoothies not only get me nutrients, but also help keep me regular. Oh pregnancy problems!

    Since I’ve started drinking green smoothies, I’ve noticed I’m not as lethargic at work as I once was. Also I’m able to sleep much better at night. I have changed my eating habits naturally, I don’t crave junk food anymore because I would much rather drink a smoothie. I’m having a ton of fun trying your recipes but also inventing my own. I love it! Thank you for helping me be a better me 🙂

    I have my boyfriend and even his 6 and 8 year old boys drinking their spinach thanks to finding the Green Smoothie Challenge! It’s a great, easy, tasty way to start off your day and make sure you’re getting in a good dose of fruits and veggies!

    Green smoothies are awesome! They have really helped me get up my potassium levels, which is one of the main reasons I started drinking them. I tend to be a little hypokalemic, which is extremely painful at times (leg cramps and sometimes heart problems). Also, it is nice to have a refreshing smoothie and know that you are also getting a good serving of greens. I tend to eat pretty healthy but some days I just don’t feel like eating any veggies (because all I want to eat is carbs… haha), so having a smoothie is a perfect compromise for me! Health is really important to me. I feel like all aspects of our happiness are interconnected, and being healthy plays a vital role in our happiness. It’s important to take care of your total self: mind, body, emotions, spirit, soul, and so forth. That is why I love these smoothies and will continue drinking them for the rest of my life, I am sure of it.

    I just love the taste of green smoothies! I feel so much better and energized. Besides that I like drinking my veggies. Over all improvement in stamina too!

    I am hooked on green smoothies. Who knew??? I am so addicted I have them every morning and will be incorporating them into my lunch as well. I have a blender at work and bring my ingredients in for the week. My staple greens are kale and spinach and my fruits are blueberries, strawberries, pears, pineapple, bananas and mangoes. Of course almond milk or So Delicious coconut milk beverage for the liquid. They are great in this NY/NJ heat when you don’t want to eat anything. I get my nutrition and I don’t have to feel guilty about having something sweet! What I’ve noticed more than anything is the energy I have. Thanks Jadah and Jen!
