  1. Okay – I’ll admit I’ve only had the book for 24 hours – but I do already love it. 🙂 I had my first smoothie from the book this morning – and it had sweet potato, so I was of course a bit apprehensive – but it was fantastic. I needn’t have worried. I’ve been enjoying the Simple Green Smoothies lifestyle for almost a year now and Jen and Jadah rarely steer me wrong.

    I was first introduced to SGS via their 21-day cleanse – which I *highly* recommend. (look for it on their website) I’ve done it twice now and plan to do it at least 2x per year – forever. I can safely say SGS has changed my life. I have completely changed the way I eat, starting with having a Green Smoothie 5 out of every 7 days, or more. Having so many smoothie recipes in one book is going to be the best.

    Quite of the book is devoted to “setting up” and the “gear.” (too much, imho) SO don’t let that intimidate or steer you away. It’s not a big deal and before you know it you’ll be whipping up smoothies every day without thinking twice. I now have a complete routine and inventory of what’s on the counter, what’s in the fridge and what’s in the freezer. It’s just a matter of deciding which one to make when I wake up each morning.

    One final note: I especially love the book’s index. Say you’ve got a pear on the counter that’s perfect and ready to be eaten – today! – just look up “pear” in the index and there you go, all 10 smoothies featuring pear. Take your pick. Yum!!

    Love it.

  2. I highly recommend this book. My first thoughts were beautiful photography, a realness to the message and super informative with all the recipes and tips. As a long time smoothie drink I thought I knew most of the tips. But within the first few chapters I was taking notes – deep cleaning my blender, setting up a fruit fly trap and inspired by the 10 day kickstart. In fact I head to Wegmans Supermarket and stocked up on some frozen fruit to add to my favorite greens – Spinach and Kale! I loved the focus on building one simple habit into your life. This book is proudlyon display in my kitchen and often right next to my vitamix as I try a new smoothie! In fact I purchased another copy to give to my brother for Christmas! If you want to hear more about this book you can listen to a Simple Green Smoothies book review on itunes, on the Grow Better Greens Show Episode 23, but I recommend you buy it NOW and you can listen to hte book review while you wait a few days for it to arrive! Enjoy, Happy Blending 🙂

  3. We’ve got 2 little girls under the age of 3 and they love stuffing our NutriBullet with the different ingredients from the book. After battling our oldest since day 1 with eating veggies… we’ve finally conquered the resistance with the recipes from the book.

    I’m red meat lover raised on the farm, but even I like my morning jolt of the good green stuff now. The recipe on page 117 is my go to now because it’s fast, simple and tastes great.

  4. I discovered these ladies via their Facebook group. After having lived the Green Smoothie Lifestyle for approximately 2 years now, I was initially introduced via another author/group. That group started taking on a negative “vibe”, and even started censoring and slashing members, simply if questions were asked regarding simple tips and/or recipe hints. I was banished from that group, and as the saying goes, “When one door closes, another door opens.” ….and OPEN IT DID!! By chance, I found the Simple Green Smoothie group, and it was/is a completely different experience. Total support, encouragement, motivation, inspiration, and LOVE emanated from Jen and Jadah’s SGS group. When they informed us about the book they were in the process of creating, I KNEW I would be doing whatever it took, to purchase a copy. When pre-order was available, I did just that! My book arrived last week, and I must say….It is a pure Treasure Chest. There or tons of recipes, testimonials, meal recipes, helpful hints, sidebars, and glorious, colorful pictures. Not to mention shopping lists and all the tools you need to succeed at adopting the simple principles needed to enhance the quality of your health via incorporating more fruits and veggies into your life and the lives of your children and loved ones. I cannot say enough about this book. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to any and all future projects they may offer. They are 2 humble, down-to-earth, relatable women, who welcome feedback, answer questions and truly love what they do.

  5. This book seriously has everything you need to know about green smoothies, and then a whole bunch of recipes on top of that. I’ve only tried a few so far but they are all good. I just can’t believe how much helpful info there is, though. Any question I have about green smoothies, equipment I need to blend them, even about produce in general has all been answered so far in this book.

  6. I got a copy of this luscious book from the authors, Jen and Jadah, who are dear friends…

    I’ve been making and recommending green smoothies to clients for 10+ years, and their recipes
    take the kale-cake!

    Each recipe is fail-proof. The pictures are inspiring and make you want to run to the grocery store and get blending!
    There are smart recommendations in terms of “building a smoothie” (order of layering ingredients), and really great combinations
    that I hadn’t considered before (mint and ginger?! YUM!).

    Yes, I know the authors. Yes, I received a free copy of the book to review…
    and YES, I will be buying extra copies for my siblings for the holidays this year!
