    I am amazed at how great I feel throughout the day! I look forward to all the different combinations I can make although I must confess I have my favorites that I make more often than the rest! Thanks for keeping my family healthy!

    Love the green smoothie challenge!! The recipes are deeeelicious (as my son would say)! I have lost 20 lbs. and feel so much healthier, but the greatest reward is seeing my kiddos love these smoothies and knowing they are getting awesome benefits from them. They love to help me make them and they’re learning along the way about the nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables. It’s wonderful being able to give them a healthy start in life and also to feel healthier myself and have more energy to enjoy life with them! You make it so easy…I look forward to the e-mails, lists, and recipes! You all rawk!!

    Green smoothies have nearly eliminated the bloating I’ve experienced for years (plus no dairy, wheat and or anything ‘white’ even potatoes and white rice). I love your food recipes too – all so simple and uncomplicated. Keep ’em coming.

    What is best about green smoothies? They actually make me feel better. I have more energy. I’ve lost weight. I don’t really have those late night cravings. It’s amazing what you can do with the best that nature has to offer.

    After going vegetarian I found it hard to get enough protein. A lot of the natural sources of protein don’t taste too good on their own so by putting protein powder and things like that in my green smoothies I felt a lot better inside and out! When school was still going I made a green smoothie everyday for breakfast and it was wonderful! So all in all, green smoothies have helped me become so much healthier and they have helped me feel much better about myself. Thanks to the team at simple green smoothies for helping me along this journey 🙂

    Green Smoothies rock! I started drinking green smoothies about a year ago. I’ve completed two green smoothie challenges and feel awesome. My children and husband have since join me in drinking green smoothies. My health has drastically improved as well as my overall appearance. I eat better, feel better, work better and now exercise. Green smoothies have changed my life forever.

    I have been drinking at least one green smoothie per day for the past month and, while I haven’t lost any weight, I have a tonne more energy. That is saying a lot as I get no sleep due to my 5mth old son and am run ragged by my other two kids(2.5 and 9 year old girls), three dogs, chickens and house and 10 acre property to take care of. They have been a huge time saver as I get them ready in advance and often use them as a meal replacement as I don’t always get a chance to sit down for a meal until my husband gets home from work.

    I have been doing the smoothie challenge since it started. I was skeptical since I already eat a lot of fruit and vegetables along with a low fat, low sugar, lean protein and complex carb diet. I don’t particularly like kale. Much to my surprise the smoothies taste really good and don’t need additional sweetener. They don’t taste like they look; they look like they should taste of seaweed and fermented green ooze. Within a week my skin was positively glowing. I am hooked on them and every time I drink one I share some with my dog. I can’t tell if her skin is glowing but she does like them.

    Top 5 Reasons Why I Hate Green Smoothies

    1) I no longer NEED to drink coffee. The last cup I made, sat cold under the Keurig for two days until I went to wash the dishes.

    2) I don’t have the excuse to order out food for dinner when I don’t know what to make… Guess l can get rid of that take out menu folder.

    3) Constipation is a thing of the past. D**n, I miss having to always use those Tucks wipes.

    4) My back feels so much better… now that I don’t have to carry around the heavy burden of guilt for not eating my veggies.

    5) I now realize I will need to buy or win (hint, hint) a new blender because I officially deem mine worn out.

    I can truly say your green smoothie challenges have changed my life. Late last year, I passed out from being severely anemic and had to get three blood transfusions. They told me they were surprised I was still walking with only HALF the blood in my body that I needed for my organs to perform. I was so weak, tired, couldn’t focus on running my business and was very underweight. After being admitted into the ICU, they diagnosed me with fibroid tumors and told me that I would need surgery to get them removed. They advised me to follow up with my primary care physician. She told me the same thing and said I could wait until summer when my schedule slowed down a little.

    I started doing my own research at the beginning of the year and found your website and bought a blender. I’ve gone through FOUR of them by blowing out the motors making smoothies every day. I started following you on IG, reading your articles and did each challenge. My cravings for sugar, processed food and junk subsided after the first challenge. I was already a vegetarian but not a healthy one but could feel and see my body changing with each challenge. Still, with each exam, they kept telling me the fibroids were there and that I needed surgery. I kept the faith and stayed consistent.

    After six months of green smoothies, I went to the doctor last week for a pre-surgery check up & was informed that all four of the fibroids were dissolved (even the one that was the size of a grapefruit), my iron levels were normal and I am finally at a healthy weight!!!! They told me they didn’t know how I did it but I will NOT need surgery!!! I owe it all to green smoothies and your website. I have energy, strength, have built lean muscle mass and prevented surgery!! My skin has cleared up and I no longer need to take iron everyday. A Blendtec would get me the consistency I need and make my smoothies more enjoyable and save me the headache of having to keep buying new blenders!! God Bless you all for what you’re doing for thousands of people!!!! So proud to be a green smoothie rawsktar!!!

    I had Lapband surgery in 2011. I lost 60 lbs and then the band just seemed to stop working. My doctor didn’t know why and I continue to eat healthy and exercise just as I’ve done all along but no weight loss. I even signed up for this very expensive and rigorous bootcamp class in January of this year and hadn’t lost a pound until I started your green smoothies 3 weeks ago. I lost 8 lbs in the first week!! I have lots of energy and feel great. The smoothies pass through my band easily and I’m full all day. I have one for breakfast and one for dinner, sometimes one for a snack. I’m addicted to them. I introduced my daughter to them and she’s lost a lot of the college weight she put on. I’ve introduced people in my bootcamp class and at work. I tell everyone I meet about them. I’ve incorporated the recipes from the cleanse into my daily meals. I’m so glad to be out of my rut!! Thanks so much Jadah and Jen. You guys are rawkstars!!

    Green smoothies have been a lifesaver! I was always very aware of what my family was eating, making sure they got their veggies everyday. However, i neglected myself and would end up eating whatever i could put together quickly. Now, with green smoothes, i get all the nutrients i need and have more energy to run around with my kids.

    I absolutely love green smoothies and im glad I found your website. About a year and a half ago I started hearing about green smoothies and decided to try one. Initially I wasnt sure I was going to like them but I kept trying it with different combinations. My go to is cantaloupe, mango, pineapple, spinach and almond milk. But I love all varieties of recipes and tips. Best of all I enjoy Jadah and Jen stories.
