    I have been following the two of you for about two years now. I tried becoming a vegan full time but I became ill and my husband & doctor stated that I need more nutrients in my diet after my operation last year. I have amped up my game a green smoothies are the best but I do get tired of having tired jaws from trying to suck a whole piece of vegetable and/or fruit through a straw that was not blended properly and I know that Blendtec will be my savior. I love smoothies because I can get my daily dose of veggies, fruit and fiber all together with out taking all of the doctors recommended medications!!!

    Hi green smoothie members,
    I have a very physical job I am a housekeeper and I clean offices. Before I started to drink smoothies I wasn’t eating enough veggies and salads were not my favorite, but I ate them because I knew it would do me some good, but yet I wasn’t feeling anything different or healthier. But then I started to drink smoothies and literally within one week I totally felt the difference. Not only did I feel healthier, but I also felt stronger, energized and in a better mood. I could not believe it! Now I don’t feel like I’m dragging through work and my bones in my body don’t hurt as much. I love all the smoothies and the tastes and I’m so happy that I started this regiment. I hope to get a better blender so that I can continue with this lifestyle, because the one I have now isn’t doing a great job. Thank you for all the smoothie recipes. Happy smoothie!

    Green smoothies are the BEST. They give you clear skin, energy, weight loss, and so many other benefits that would take up too much space on this comment box. The amazing thing about this website and the ladies that run it along with the thousands of followers is that there is a support system, recopies easily available and it is aesthetically pleasing to read. One of my best friends and god father to my girls is the CFO of daily greens and i lived in California for many years before moving to Texas. I am no stranger to smoothies or juicing or fresh produce. Juicing is not a phase it is a away of life and what these ladies have done and continue to do to get more and more people to start living a healthy life and incorporating “green” into their everyday routine is awesome. They make it easy and give variety. thank you

    It’s not an understatement to say green smoothies have changed my life. It’s a great go-to meal when I ‘m in a hurry or don’t feel like making dinner. I can eat more nutritiously in a snap instead of running to get fast-food. I share the green smoothie love with everyone I talk too and have my grand-kids enjoying them too. Love, love, love them!

    Green smoothies have changed my life! I’ve learned that eating my greens doesn’t have to be boring or nasty! I love the fact that the smoothies have both fruit and vegetables that I would have NEVER paired together but they blend together perfectly making the BEST meal replacements! I am well on my way to reaching my fitness goals! Thank you for making the recipes simple and easy to follow! I am really enjoying my green smoothies daily!

    Blending green smoothies has changed not only my lifestyle, it has changed my children’s. My kids used to be scared of veggies, especially if they were green. When I heard of the green smoothie challenge I joined only because I was looking for a way to increase my veggie servings a day. It became so easy to just put everything in a blender and just blend away. My 5 year old son saw me drinking my green smoothie and asked me if I was drinking a “hulk juice”, I told him I was and I let him try it. He loved it!! That’s when I decided to let my 7 year old daughter try green smoothies as well. Now my kids just ask for “hulk juice” and I know they want a green smoothie. Not only can they drink there veggies but they are now more open to trying new things (veggies). They even eat green beans and asparagus!! As a family we became more conscious of what we were eating.

    And with this new change we were able to cure some health problems we were experiencing. For example my daughter suffered really bad constipation. Thanks to the fiber in her smoothies she has been aw to regulate her body. And I was able to clear my face from pimples and blemishes, as well as see results in my weight loss journey!!

    On behalf of my family and I, I want to thank the rawkstar team of simple green smoothies for putting these challenges together and helping thousands of us became more healthy!!

    Like many people struggling with their weight, I was in search of a way to get as many nutrient rich foods in my diet as hassle free as possible. Green smoothies have been a GAME CHANGER. I am not a fan of vegetables and to be able to get my daily serving in a delicious drink that doesn’t even taste like I’m eating veggies?! DOUBLE WIN! I feel better, I’m losing weight, and I couldn’t be happier with my diet. A great blender makes all the difference in the world when it comes to these shakes and I would love the oppurtunity to try a Blendtec!! Thank you for your consideration! 🙂

    Green smoothies have helped me incorporate veggies that I would NEVER eat normally and helped me kick my caffiene habit. I’m never going back! Woohoo!!

    Ive been doing the green smoothies for a few months now. I did fall off the bandwagon but I noticed my energy went down and I was tired and sluggish all the time. I just got an extraction done and the Green Smoothies have helped alot since I cant eat like I want.

    Green smoothies fill me up and keep me satisfied. I like the challenges its fun doing them with other people, I even had my fiance taking them to work and drinking them throughout the day.

    Lost a lot of weight! Ialso enjoy finding new recipes and trying new things, Spinach is still my favorite green.

    This challenge has made a definite change for the better in my life. Not only has it decreased my cravings but I feel so much healthier and cleaner on the inside. I drink them for breakfast and even have my cookie monster son in love with them as well. I am glad and thankful I found Simple Green Smoothies on Instagram!!!

    My second challenge. Love starting my day off with several servings of fruits and veggies – especially with weekly visits to the farmers market. Split them every morning with my teenage daughter. No matter what – I know I do breakfast right!! Thanks for all you do.

    A day is not complete without a green smoothie! What an easy way to get myself and my kids to consume the fruit and veggie intake for the day. I love mine for breakfast before a long workout, it helps keep me full and have the endurance to keep going!

    Green smoothies have changed my life by changing my mindset: I am constantly thinking about what healthy foods I can ADD into my diet. Now that I drink green smoothies, my focus is on adding nutrient dense foods into my daily routine. And yes, I still eat desserts, but as I continually add more colorful foods, the processed junk food has slowly been disappearing from my diet.

    I have been following simplegreensmoothies for over a year now and have done every one of their challenges including their cleanses (which I totally recommend to everyone of my friends and everyone I meet) I love the recipes and directions that Jadah and Jen deliver in their emails! They are the ones that really taught me how to blend and how to make my very first green smoothie as well as everyone after that! My skin is glowing, and hydrated it’s not dry, I feel fuller longer and am able to eat lunch and dinner without feeling bloated or irritable. I’m in a better mood and have more energy since I’ve discovered simple green smoothies. Thank you so much Jadah and Jen! You have really changed my life with spinach shakes haha! I love you guys!!

    Thank you so much for this opportunity, and it couldn’t come at a better time. My old blender just broke, so my husband and I starteded researching other blender options, and the Blendtec was one of them! For me, drinking green smoothies has proven to be a stepping stone into making better food choices. Once I started drinking green smoothies on a regular basis I became motivated try and make sure all of the rest of the meals I consume throughout the day are as wholesome and energizing. So green smoothies have helped me to become more conscious of what I put into my body. Thanks again!
