    Only ONE reason that green smoothies have changed my life??

    KALE. You have gotten me to eat kale!

    Okay, but seriously. How about this: GETTING THAT DAILY DOSE OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES (yes, including kale.) In a society where it’s easy to reach for cheap and easy food that wholly lack in nutrition, a green smoothie start to the morning is one way to make sure I’ve got a handle on some ‘intake verde’. And one of the best parts of being a rawkstar? My inbox and feeds fill up with crazily delicious recipes that feel more like an indulgence than sneaking in my greens.

    Of course, some other reasons include that I feel more invigorated to wake up early and get that green smoothie in because I believe it fuels me to go work out (whether that’s a walk around the block, the gym, a hike, or a swim.) I also have lost weight, noticed clearer skin, and feel happier in general when I’ve a handle on basic nutrition. Overall, green smoothies RAWK!

    Simplegreensmoothies have been such a great addition to our lives. My 5 year old daughter and I love them! I wish I had an extremely sappy or overwhelming story, but I don’t! Truth is I have GERD and wanted to try healthy living (eating right and exercise) and starting with a simple green smoothie a day sounded great. Good change for me, great life start for the kiddo! 😉 Jadah and Jenn just told me about the 21 day cleanse…think I’ll look into that next! They are rawkstars, but now so are we! Thanks a bunch for what you do!

    Green smoothies saved my life. When going through chemotherapy it was hard for me to eat food which made it questionable as to whether or not I could continue my chemo treatments. Because I wasn’t eating, I wasn’t getting nutrients. I knew I had to do something, so I began making green smoothies. With each office visit, I saw my white and red blood cell counts stay consistent enough for my oncologist to go ahead with treatments. I finished almost on schedule, but I credit this to drinking green smoothies.

    My husband and I have been doing this most recent Green Smoothie Challenge, and we can both tell a major difference in the way we feel! An overall happier countenance with just good, fresh happiness! Our skin looks better, and I swear my eyes are brighter! We both exercise 4 times a week, and I am seeing a big difference in my body – just since starting the smoothie challenge…. We have both decided to adopt it as a permanent lifestyle!! Thanks so much!!!

    The green smoothie challenges have help me look and feel healthier after the birth of my first child. After 46 hours of labor, I had a C-section on Nov. 7, 2013. The first two months following our sons birth I felt sluggish and heavy. I gained nearly 40lbs during my pregnancy. After 2 months I was still holding on to 20 of them (the first 10lbs were likely water weight). Since starting drinking green smoothies I’m still 10lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. However, at 133lbs I feel and look better than I did at 123lbs. I have more energy which is wonderful with a very active 8month old. Thanks to Simple Green Smoothie for making me look and feel like a super mom!!

    Creativity is something I thrive on. Colors, patterns, and textures are all beautiful parts of life, and doing the 30 Day Challenge and introducing daily green smoothies into my life has allowed me to bring these aspects into the kitchen. I can experiment with a variety of fruits and leafy greens to create beautiful things, and the best part is, the art I make in the blender is not only edible but healthy; these smoothies have upped my energy, my overall fruit/veggie intake, and general health so that when I leave the blender I can keep creating.

    My diet has been devoid of fresh fruits for such a long time, and it’s not for a lack of trying! Every week I’d buy cartons of strawberries, blueberries, melons, even bananas. (Don’t even get me started on the wasted spinach!) I’d start off great eating them in their natural form, but by the end of the week, there was always wasted food that I would have to toss away to the wildlife outside. (Those bunnies were dining happy, lemme tell ya!) Now, I use so much more fruit and greens in each smoothie, which means I’m not wasting all that delicious fruit at the end of the week!!! (And that’s just one reason! I coulda just said the taste, how they make me feel on the inside, the taste, how easy they are to make! Oh, did I mention the taste?) 😉

    Green smoothies are truly changing my life! I was a person who rarely ate fruits and vegetables so I can’t describe how amazing I feel now. My energy levels are unbelievable and the best part is I have lost 5 lbs. in the past two weeks! I add protein powder and ginger to the daily recipes and replace one meal a day. Thank you for making me a green smoothie drinker for life!

    I started drinking green smoothies back in January 2014 with the 30 day challenge. I had been going through some stuff and hadn’t been eating healthy and green smoothies were my first step to getting back to a healthy lifestyle. Fast forward to July and I still have my green smoothies every day. One in the morning and one at night. It didn’t happen overnight, but over a few months I noticed that I started making healthier food choices because I would just remember how good I felt after drinking a green smoothie and I wanted that feeling again. It was definitely better than the feeling I got after eating something made from processed sugar, which is what I had been indulging in. I just like how there is no pressure to change your entire lifestyle in one day. You just start slow and the changes happen. I will be drinking green smoothies for the rest of my life!

    I LOVE this smoothie challenge! I have got my oldest daughter and my husband doing it with me! Some days it’s a smoothie for breakfast, other days it’s an afternoon/workout refueler. We have done avocado, spinach and kale with whatever fruit we have in the house. More energy,less muscle cramps, over all well being feeling! Just what the body needs!

    I’m 53 years old, and I can run circles around my teenagers I’m happy and healthy with energy to spare. Couldn’t do it without my daily green smoothie fix! I throw in a scoop of protein powder. Hey at my age I do what it takes to keep muscle as well. Love what you are doing. Keep spreading the word about the simple green smoothie life!
