    I had never had green smoothies before your April challenge. Once I started I got hooked! I usually have one for breakfast & one for dinner on most days. I have lost 10 pounds so far just by replacing breakfast with the smoothies. I love them so much I share the recipes with friends as well as your page link.

    Started the green smoothie challenge this month and already I feel more energetic (to chase my children around the house!) and just “lighter”. It has helped kick start my taking care of myself mode.

    I did my first 30-day challenge while I was pregnant 6 months ago and have loved my morning smoothie ever since! My husband (a self-proclaimed hater of smoothies) even drinks one every day! So happy to have the extra fruits and veggies in both of our diets!

    My job is very draining mentally and I have had many health issues in the past. Since I started my 30 day challenge I have seen amazing results, I have more energy, my mind is clearer and I feel awesome. I think I finally got my husband & whole family to drink them too and best of all my teenage daughter who was overweight manages to drop 30 pounds drinking them daily along with exercise. I believe out of all her results were the best. Now she tries to sneak them away but in reality I make them specially for her and add all the stuff she should have yet doesn’t like in them so I know she getting her nutrients in them.

    Still haven’t beaten the sugar beast, and I don’t exercise as I should, but my doctor continue to be amazed that I don’t have many of the chronic diseases associated with my age and weight. Personally, I’m convinced that my continued good health comes through a straw, directly from the power of greens. Been drinking them for years and can’t get enough of them. Pretty sure they’re adding years of quality to my life.

    I LOVE GREEN SMOOTHIES!!! Before the green smoothie challenge, I simply dragged myself to work every day, depressed to start another day. But after starting the 30-day challenge, I feel energized and ready to attack each day with the full zest of life! I feel healthier, and I’m sleeping better too. Life is simply better when you’re rawkin’ out with green smothies!

    I love green smoothies for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Through this challenge, I have learned of new and amazing green smoothie recipes that my whole family is enjoying. You know a smoothie is good and tasty when a 1 year old likes it! This is a great way for my whole family to get our servings of fruits and veggies. Eating healthy has motivated me to exercise more which leads to weight loss and a lean toned body. Thank you 30 day green smoothie challenge!

    This is my 3rd 30 day Green Smoothie challenge and I am seriously addicted! Green Smoothies have enabled me to eat healthier and to gain energy for each day. If I happen to miss getting my smoothie for some reason (not very often), the whole day seems not quite right. Thank you for supplying the shopping list and menus. They’re awesome!

    Green smoothies help me in my afternoon sugar attack! A simple smoothie makes all the difference, fills me up and stops me from snacking on the foods that aren’t good for me.
    I’m also getting all my nutrition through raw whole foods instead of from supplements and I love that

    This is a fantastic program. Easy to follow, not restrictive and fun! Throw some goodness in a blender and drink in the car on the way to work. Lots of good recipe ideas you can make with what is in season or what is in your garden. Replaced my first coffee with this healthy alternative. Makes me feel better and avoid the mid-morning snack craving. Even better, I think I am calmer through the morning traffic madness.

    I have actually been doing smoothies since the ’80’s when I discovered the book ‘Fit for Life’ and not eating anything but fruit until Noon! Smoothies are great anytime really and I can’t imagine my life without this meal in a glass :0) Thank you for the opportunity but no matter is I’m blessed to win or not, truly appreciate all the amazing information you have given us! Thank you for the continued inspiration! Cheers!

    I continue to drink green smoothies to this day, but my first green smoothie challenge with Jen and Jadah was the real adventure. At the time I worked in a coffee bar with a friend. I was so excited about starting to eat clean that I told her about the 30 day challenge. Working at the cafe was great! We had all the tools necessary (even a Blendtec) to whip up our morning/afternoon smoothies and we both even said no to coffee! (Which is pretty HUGE) It inspired us to start offering green smoothies in the cafe. We weren’t sure how people would respond but I was feeling so good I wanted other people to try it. We assured them the greens in the smoothies didn’t make them taste icky and the hideous colors some of them turned was no big deal! It was awesome seeing them take that first sip… And then come back the next day. 😉 My manager tells me that little cafe continues to makes green smoothies everyday and goes through almost 25 lbs of bananas in a day! 😀 Working in the cafe made my smoothies great and my first 30 day challenge a success. It also gave me the opportunity to try all the great recipes and discover my favorites. With the combination of the 30 day challenge and the 21 Day Cleanse my eczema has cleared up and my tummy is a lot happier these days. I feel amazing knowing exactly what I am putting in my body. I have even been inspired to start the path toward removing all toxins from my skin care routine and will even start selling it soon! Thank you Jadah and Jen for a healthy push in the right direction!!
