    I was on a green smoothie kick for about 3-weeks before my blender completely gave out. I unfortunately have not been able to replace it yet. While I was drinking the smoothies I had a renewed since of energy all day long. Can’t wait to start drinking them again.

    “Actually I just woke up one day and decided I didn’t want to feel like that anymore, or ever again. So I changed.
    Just like that.”
    Green smoothies were a huge step in taking my mental and physical well being to the next
    level after being vegan for 7 years. Every morning my green smoothie sets my intention for how I want to feel everyday- and I’ve never loved myself so good!!!

    I’m a college student trying to avoid the fast-food, the MSG, and packaged TV tray dinners. When I found out how easy, simple, and FUN making green smoothies were, I knew I had to commit to it. I absolutely love blending all sorts of goodies in the morning to have a yummy breakfast. I haven’t skip a day without having a smoothie and I thank you all for helping me get to this point! #healthylifestyle #smoothiegirl #ilovegreens

    Green smoothies have helped me in my daily digestive health. It has given me much needed energy due to the required pharmaceuticals that I need to take daily. Sticking to my daily diet requirements is really hard but starting out with my green smoothy daily gives me energy until lunch time. I love the way it has transformed my way of thinking. Thank you very much!

    I love green smoothies!! I just happen to love vegetables and love that I can combine them into a delicious morning treat. But what I love more is getting my boyfriend (who hates anything green) to drink his vegetables. We both love them!!

    My husband and I started drinking green smoothies during the April 2014 challenge. We enjoyed each one of them and since then I have started crafting some of my own creations based on Jen & Jadah’s recipe guide using the fruits and greens we have enjoyed the most. It has been fun to be creative in this way and we have enjoyed some REALLY good smoothies. We have tried several new greens, liquids and fruits that we wouldn’t have necessarily on our own and guess what, no complaints or major fails. I started out with a high quality Kitchen Aid blender, which has done just fine. I thought that putting it to so much use would burn it out and since the plastic jar was cracked before I started I also thought the frozen fruits would bust it open, but it leaks a little and keeps going. I couldn’t justify the expense of a great blender because we are having a job set back. However, my brother is getting married in October. My wedding gift idea is a GREAT blender and a custom recipe guide for green smoothies because they are both health nuts and I think they would really enjoy doing this together. It would be wonderful to test a great blender out myself so I know a good one to get for them. My husband and I have enjoyed at least one green smoothie every day since we started except when we traveled and we both really missed them and noticed a difference. Since Jadah takes this one with her, it must be quiet enough to use in a hotel room. I would love to have that versatility and never miss a green smoothie especially since my husband and I will be traveling quite a bit in the upcoming months. I have recommended SGS to my friends who are looking for ways to get more fruits and greens into their lives. It really does make life easier to have the recipes, shopping lists and experience doing this. I am really glad I found out about this site through Underground Health Reporter. Thank you for this opportunity to try out a Blendtec, and for all you have done to get your information out there.

    I have been struggling with Psorasis, menopause, thyroid issues and more for a while now. I have always thought I was eating healthy and taking care of myself, yet nothing changed for the better. After going over your website and now taking the challenge I am seeing tremendous results for the first time in my life! The smoothies truly make such a difference and I am getting to the point where that is what I am craving instead of sweets, breads and more. Thank you so very much for your dedication in helping others and the easy nonjudgmental way you offer this program. I must say it has been a life changer.

    This is my first challenge, but it has been surprisingly easy for me and my family. Even my children (ages 3 and 1) love these smoothies….sometimes it’s a fight to see who will actually get to drink them 🙂 I am in my first trimester with baby #3 and morning sickness (or should I say ALL THE TIME sickness) has been kicking my butt…these simple green smoothies make it easy to get the fruits and veggies that I, and my whole family, need.

    I’ve always loved smoothies but there were so many recipes and I lacked the experience to choose the one for my needs. I love working out and eat healthy daily. The blending sensation has inspired me to take on a new way of eating right! This 30-day challenge is all up to you which does not require one to be locked into a plan. I do follow all the steps and the smoothie recipes are just fantastic! This is my first challenge and certainly not the last given the great recipes. I would love to have this blender as I heard so much about the smoothness and richness of the blends it can make; especially the greens. Unfortunately my blender can make it coarse and take more time to get the consistency ok. Thanks for the challenge and I’ll be looking forward to more!! 🙂

    I’ve never been over weight but I take karate lessons and felt that what I was putting in my body really wasn’t helping me, and I wanted to improve my performance as I was going for my black belt in the next year or two and was also taking up yoga. I started eating healthy and being more aware of what I was putting into my body. It was pretty good for a few months and I was losing weight but I still struggled with self security, I’ve always been really insecure. I used this to give myself a bit of a boost and it was so worth it! I’ve never felt more at peace with my body! It makes my athletic performance so much easier and believe it or not its easier for me to get a good nights sleep an has helped made me feel more secure.Plus Green Smoothies are just so delicious! ♥ Thank You so MUCH! ♥

    I was talking with a friend about my quest for a healthier life. I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism and have been struggling with my weight since I was a child. I have been slowly making life style changes in hopes to get my weight under control and lead a healthier life. She mentioned the green smoothie challenge and told me I should look into it. I recently bought a juicer and have had lots of fun juicing so I was super excited to learn about it. I immediately signed up and looked over the website. I was concerned that my simple blender wouldn’t be strong enough but, thanks to your tips, it works. I tried a few smoothies before the challenge started and I was hooked!

    This is a great way to get your kids in the kitchen. I have had so much fun with my 13 year old son prepping fruits and veggies, trying different combinations, we even started a garden, and planted some pineapples. He couldn’t believe how good they were and is in the kitchen each morning with his cup ready. I managed to convince my mother who lives a few states away to try them to! She hasn’t committed to the challenge but she is drinking them. I am determined to get as many people to take them as I can.

    I have my smoothie for breakfast, they are so filling and give me lots of energy. Which allows me to skip the coffee and bagel I normally grab from Dunkin Donuts on the way to work. I have lost 6lbs in two weeks! I can see a difference in my skin, I fell less sluggish, and no longer crave junk. For me this challenge has opened my eyes and made me more away of the foods I am eating. This challenge has helped me develop my eating habit and has completely change my cravings and has curved my appetite. I am so grateful for this free challenge thank you Jadah and Jen for sharing these amazing smoothies with us!

    A few months ago I discovered two things about myself that I really didn’t like: 1. I was hooked on sugar, the way many are addicted to caffeine and 2. I was developing that dreaded menopausal middle. Now I knew I could only do so much about the middle, but I was convinced I could do much more about the sugar addiction. That’s where the 30 day challenge came in! I started a little early (as soon as the first email with the recipes arrived ) because we were planning a vacation near the beginning of the challenge and I wanted to get started sooner rather than later. The sugar cravings went away quickly and, I believe as a result, some of the middle started to melt away too – that was an added bonus! The decrease in my sugar intake and the increase in healthy whole foods has helped improve my energy level. Thanks so much for making this so easy to do!

    Fighting the doom of genetics….I knew diabetes was on it’s way to welcome me sooner or later. I am 36 and have been working on “loosing the baby weight” for the last 9 years! In a quest to just better myself and health, my husband and I started smoothing in November of last year. One for breakfast and one for lunch. It was amazing how much better our bodies felt. I was shocked that it actually satiated me and I was not looking for snacks before the lunch hour. It was easier than I thought and actually makes mornings stress free. My children also have enjoyed them both for breakfast and frozen in their lunches. We have a rule in the house….two sip smoothies. After the first sip, your mouth is still in the “wow” stage, then by the second sip you really can get a taste of the great flavors. It has helped us in all aspects of health and wellness and it just is comforting to know we are doing something. We are actively working to better ourselves. This blender would be AMAZING considering we are using a $30 blender from Farm & Fleet! Not sure we even now how amazing a “smooth” smoothie would be!
