    Green smoothies ensured I got my daily servings of fruits and veggies while going through a kitchen remodeling project. I did not have a stove or oven, but I did have a blender! Having smoothies at home, and starting my days with smoothies, helped me to stay away from the junk food during the day and motivated me to seek out and choose healthier food options when I was not able to cook. I started having green smoothies due to the convenience, but they are now part of my daily routine, even with a kitchen!

    I discovered green smoothies over a year ago and incorporating green smoothies into my diet has been a complete lifestyle change. I am now receiving all the essential vitamins in moderation. Green smoothies have tremendously changed me physically and mentally. I feel energized and wholesome which gives me the motivation to continue a healthy lifestyle.

    I am almost 35 years old, I am a fitness enthusiast, a single mother of 2 daughters, ages 15 and 5. I work full time as a mortgage processor and I’m in the Army National Guard as well, as a mechanic. I advocate for pitbulls and dog rights in my “spare” time. Needless to say, I am very busy! I started a green smoothie challenge several months ago and I was immediately hooked! I drink them every day for breakfast, then put the remaining in the fridge and add ice and egg whites (for protein) and blend it up again as post-workout meal. I also post pics with recipes on my Instagram and Facebook so my friends can try them. Besides loving them myself, this has been an excellent way to get my children to consume more veggies! There’s nothing better than starting your day with a great big dose of nutritients!

    I’m recently retired and have a few health issues. And I’ve 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 my Grandkids. So I quit smoking 9 years ago 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!!!

    I have been amazed at the transformation my body has made since starting drinking green smoothies. There were so many side effects that I noticed.
    First, I lost weight and inches, my rings don’t fit snugly any more, my high blood pressure has come down from 200/100 to 122/58, I sleep better, my clothes are getting bigger or I’m getting smaller, friends commenting on my weight lose (that’s when I know it’s real), I feel better, and I have more energy. Also I have no cravings for anything. I just want my green smoothie. Thank you so much for the introduction to a whole new lifestyle. I’m forever grateful! Be blessed!

    Green smoothies are the only way that I can start my day! Since I’ve started drinking them, I’ve seen so many positive changes in my body… inside and out! I feel better.. lighter! I’m going to bathroom more regularly (TMI, sorry), my skin is glowing and I have more energy. The 30-day green smoothie challenge and 21-day cleanse have been life changers for me. No looking back!

    Green smoothies have transformed my family! We are all very active, but eating a healthy breakfast has always been a struggle with two kids. Ever since we started following you on Instagram, the kids are excited to try new smoothies for breakfast…and ASK for spinach and or kale in their smoothies. I love that they are getting a healthy breakfast that fills them up and makes them more alert during school. Thank you!

    Green smoothies have changed both mine and my husbands lives. Although I have always enjoyed fruit, my husband has NEVER liked the texture of it. He’s 31 years old, and I believe his body has hated him for this!! Aside from the occasional banana, you would literally never eat fruit. For the last few weeks, we’ve been doing the smoothie challenge, and he’s been enjoying fruits he’s never tried before! I feel like one of those mom’s who has to buy those special cookbooks on how to “sneak” veggies into your kids’ meals 😉 I’m thrilled that he’s getting such a great dose of nutrition first thing in the morning! We are both feeling more energetic and positive about life in general… so glad to have your website as such a great resource!

    I have a green smoothie every single morning and I can feel my day starting out amazing … I think having the green smoothie sets me up for a healthier day than not having one. My body feels so energised and refreshed after a green smoothie that my mind wants to continue the green-ness (lol) and healthy feeling throughout my entire day, so I make better choices. Green smoothies are an amazing way to get tons of nutrients into my system – that’s why every single morning I give my body some green love via smoothies 🙂

    Hello, My name is Mariah Toussaint. I am going into my senior year of college and have always been a health nut. During my first few years of college I did not care anything about my health or what I put into my body, luckily for me I ran track at my University and so still had to do the workouts that I was told to do. As I began to learn more and more about track and field and about taking care of my body and getting better results I wanted to improve my overall health. I am still on a health journey trying to perfectly find a way to be a healthier Mariah. I have just begun this green smoothie challenge and am in love with the results. I feel my skin as been glowing, I have a lot more energy and am able to breeze my way through my track workouts. I actually enjoy hearing the buzzz of my blender as I combine almond milk, spinach and an array of fruits of which the recipe I have perfected myself. Thank you so much for introducing me to a new way of becoming a healthier me. 🙂

    I started making my own green smoothies about 2 years ago and just ended up getting in a slump with the same old recipe until recently when I joine the 30 day challange. The recipes are amazing and I never get bored with the same old boring recipe. Even my husband and son, who are super picky about what they eat, will try it with me if our old blender is able to get the chunks out. This has changed my eating habits and I am on my way to an even healthier lifestyle!

    I love the green smoothie challenges and the recipes! They are so delicious and they have helped me love veggies more. It’s such a great way to incorporate more veggies into my diet. I’ve been working out for 2 years and these smoothies have helped me with my digestive system and everything else. It’s amazing ! Many people get discouraged by the color and the way it looks but everytime I make someone try the smoothies they fall in love too! So hey you can’t judge a book by it’s cover! It’s definitely changed my life and I always drink one of these drinks daily 🙂
