    I LOVE that they have gotten me on a new way of life. I feel so much better, sleep better, have a lot more energy and even been told by others that it looks like I lost weight and look Great. They want to know my secret! when I tell them eat more vegetables they always say we do not have time to eat right, I then say the simple green smoothie way of life they say DISGUSTING ! I tell them “if they already tried what I am drinking” you just had some and said that it was so good. They take awhile to believe me but then they are asking what is the web sight? and what is the next flavorful recipe.
    I can not THANK YOU enough.
    my son and daughters 15, 18 and 24 LOVE them also

    My boyfriend and I are new to the green smoothies. Barely 2 weeks old but already we feel the benefits. We have a healthier glow about us that only eating healthier can give. The smoothies are satisfying and no more worries of not getting enough fruit and veggies every day. We absolutely love this challenge which is not a challenge at all but a great incentive to live healthier and feel better overall. The best thing about it is the weekly recipes and grocery lists, they make shopping a breeze and preparation is easy as 1-2-3. We can only thank you girls for encouraging such yummyess and making it accessible to all. The green smoothie revolution is changing our lives!!

    Green Smoothies are something I’ve always enjoyed, but the 30-day challenge has given me so many more options and recipes, which has also caused my family to enjoy them. For me, driving them for thirty days straight helped to curb my cravings for bad sweets, energized my morning, and gave me a really nutritious option if I was too busy to sit down and eat lunch, or when I was facing a mid-afternoon lull where I might have otherwise reached for something unhealthy. Thanks for making it painless to create healthier habits!

    I recently took up the challenge but have been enjoying the smoothie lifestyle for about 6 month now. I have been overweight most of my adult life but since incorporating green drinks into my life I have lost over 60 pounds! Green drinks have been a life saver not only for me but my kids. I have more energy and I can actually run and play and do the things dads should be able to with their kids. the blentec would be awesome to continue my journey of healthy living.

    I was reluctant to try green smoothies. However, the recipes that I’ve tried from Simple Green Smoothies have been so delicious! My husband and I really like them. And even better, when our two year old hears the blender going, she comes running in and says, “You making a smoothie, Mom? I want some!” She loves them!

    I’m just a newbie to the green smoothie world. Just 1 week old. I was online looking for recipes because I had no clue where to begin. I wanted to try them out before I go out and get a new blender. I have made one every morning and take it to work. I’m so grateful for this website !!!

    Green smoothies have absolutely changed my life for the better! People who have not seen me for a while comment that my skin “glows.” That I look so “young.” I love that! Hubs and I have been on the green smoothie kick for 2 1/2 years now, and will never stop drinking the stuff. We always have one for breakfast – best way to start the day – good taste, great energy, and our bodies crave the incredible nutrition. Four out of five days a week we take a green smoothie to work for lunch. It is delicious and satisfying, and the most important thing is that Green Smoothies keep us well hydrated for our cycling in Arizona. When we do our long Saturday rides (30-70 miles), we always have an energizing green smoothie before the ride. I make tasty smoothies for my grandkids, and they LOVE them! Blending up green smoothies has made our grocery bill less, even though we are getting fresh food and more nutrition than ever. I think that is pretty life-changing for my budget! Fresh fruits and vegetables are much less expensive than hormone and antibiotic-filled GMO fed animal meats, and much better for our health! Thank you for all you do to promote our well-being, physical, mental, and spiritual!

    Green smoothies have changed mine and my family’s life by getting more nutrition into our diets. We have really changed our eating habits in the past year and have been so much healthier thanks to the kick start green smoothies gave us. It is a really easy and tasty way to get the needed nutrition in your everyday diet, even when you’re on the go! And a bonus, my kids LOVE them and they are very picky eaters!

    I’m totally new to the green smoothie scene and I am loving this 30-day challenge! I have always had trouble getting enough leafy greens into my diet but not any more, thanks to Simple Green Smoothies. These recipes are yummy enough that even my picky husband is drinking them with me! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Green Smoothies have definitely been a great morning staple and my husband even enjoys them now! It makes it so much easier to get in our veggies and fruits for the day without a lot of hassle. Energy and a sense of well-being is definitely present when you make green smoothies a part of your daily diet regimen. My body truly misses them whenever I take a break from them so I know that my body loves them too! 🙂

    I have only been drinking the green smoothies for about a week now, but I can already tell a difference in my overall energy and in my system. I love how I can get my fruits and veggies in one smoothie and they taste great. I can’t wait to try out all of the other recipes. I know this is going to be something I can stick with in the future. I am so glad my friend suggested this, I was so skeptical to try the bottled versions, but I am sure this is so much better. Fingers crossed….I would love to win, but I feel like in a way I already have. I feel better about myself, I know I am doing something good for my body, and I can tell my future tastes and looks good. 🙂

    Green smoothies have changed my life. It was my first step to becoming a vegetarian, and the energy I have is amazing. I had been suffering from headaches and pains all over my body which are completely gone, I am motivated to do more stuff everyday, and my mood has improved a lot!
