Groundbreaking Green Smoothie Research: Be a Part of It


Robyn Openshaw - Jan 21, 2009 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links


I want you guys to be thinking about something.

In about two days, I will have an interactive  questionnaire posted on GSG.   Be thinking about what the changes are you have experienced as a result of drinking GS regularly.   The questionnaire will automatically generate tabulations for me to use as research, to be published in The Green Smoothie Rx (or The Green Smoothie Diet . . . depending on the day,  based on my  conversations with the publisher).   (Any opinions on that, the title controversy?)

Be thinking about whether you’ve evangelized, teaching others about this easy, 10-minute step to get 1000% more raw plant food in the daily diet than most Americans are getting.

Be thinking about your chronic conditions or diseases that may have improved as a result of drinking GS.   I cannot and will not make claims about the curative effects, but I can certainly report testimonials and reports from my research.

Thus far, the only GS research out there is Boutenko’s Roseburg Study of only 30 people for 30 days!   I hope to get 1,000 responses (which will be less than 1/3 of my mailing list), so be prepared to be part of this.   At the end of the questionnaire, you’re asked to optionally write a GS testimonial, which will be published with part or all of your name, whatever you choose to give.   (You’re also asked optionally for a 12 Steps to Whole Foods testimonial.)

I am ESPECIALLY INTERESTED in the testimonials of mothers of children!   (But, everyone’s input is highly encouraged and valued.)   I want only those who have been drinking at least a pint, at least three times  a week, for at least a month.

Watch for an upcoming blog and be thinking about even the minor things you may not have noticed since you started drinking kale, collards, and chard after a lifetime of “greens deprivation.”   Thanks in advance for participating!

  1. I just want to say that the article about junk food was a great article!Im in middle school myself .

    I agree—don’t do diet–I would never pick up that diet—sounds like another fad–like the “banana diet”=== (thankfully I already know about green smoothie girl–without the book) i also really like the RX—it doesn’t sound like it’s medical becuase it is “green smoothie” before- i think there could be alternative titles we haven’t thought of. I understand about the publisher–but you want a lifetime audience—not people looking for a new DIET–you’d get a weird crowd I’d think (of course more sales–but take your pick–changing more peoples lives long term–or selling lots of diet books)–of course the publisher would probably pick the last one–I sure vote to change lives!

    where do we leave our GS story? here or a new blog?! thanks

    How about The Green Smoothie Miracle? The Green Smoothie Health Drink?

    The title is a tough one.

    Diet says NO Way to Me but to the people out their it might attract their attention.

    Green Revolution is good but it the name of Victoria’s Boutenko’s new book.

    Green Smoothie Challenge is good but is taken by a group from Australia (I think) I remember it spread throught the raw food e-lines and they have a website of greensmoothiechallenge dot com.

    I like the other poster’s suggestions of Green Smoothie Solution but unfortunately the publisher seems to know what sells and anything with the word diet seems to fly off the bookshelf.

    We have been drinking green smoothies since October and both my husband and I are addicted to them! When I had my youngest child in November my hemoglobin test they take before they release you, came back the highest they have ever seen for a woman who just gave birth! I attribute it to my green smoothies and though my son still wakes up every three hours I am able to keep up with my 3 children without naps.

    Robyn – do you want the children to be drinking at least a pint a day? I am doing good to get them to drink 1 cup a day (they are 2.5 and 5)!

    Yes, 1 cup a day is great for little ones! A pint is a good goal to work towards as they get older.

    I have to agree with Denise about the Rx because it kind of grabs you and also may attract those with serious problems looking for alternatives. And it may also come to the attention of those who are used to taking lots and lots of Rx’s for all of their ills. So in a way they’d stumble upon this amazing book with life changing info without even realizing it. How awesome would that be. I am so excited to buy this book. Green Smoothies have been amazing for our family. My 20 month old daughter has been consuming them since she was 9 months old. Before that she exclusively nursed, so I’m looking forward to giving you the “mother and child” testimony! I’m so thankful for you and and the work you do.

    Kristen McNabb–do you mind me asking how you introduced them to her? did you make sure she was okay eating all the ingredients seperately and THEN do the whole bit together?

    My 2 1/2 year old LOVES his green smoothies — I am looking forward to writing about our family too! if i forget he’ll remind me in the day– looking forward to my 7 1/2 mo old to have them sometime in the next year (not sure when- she has allergies)

    You could test her on bananas, and when you know she tolerates them well, make a smoothie from spinach, banana, and water. Then you’ve isolated just spinach. After two weeks of just that, add collards. Etc.

    good idea!! what a great idea! wow–thanks.. I’m afraid to try bananas becuase she broke out in hives to avacado and I think they are similar somehow–but I will try it!

    Here are some titles that would “grab” me:

    The Green Smoothie Breakthrough

    Undiet Your Diet with Green Smoothies

    The Miracle of Greens

    Green Smoothie Miracle

    Green Smoothies for Optimum Health

    Get Green to Achieve Optimum Health

    1 (pint) A Day Keeps Diseases/Fat/Sickness/Toxins (…etc….) Away

    I dunno…..maybe not adding in the word “smoothie” in the title would make more people grab the book and thumb through it and create more excitement to buy it. Maybe the word smoothie would make people think it’s a liquid type diet. Altho, I do like The Green Smoothie Rx too 🙂

    Does the word “smoothie” appeal to the male population? I can think of the guys I know who term the word “smoothie” as a frilly, girly drink.

    Sorry for the rambling 🙂

    I’ve been drinking GS’s for about 1 month addicted to them but I guess I thought I would be seeing/feeling more benefits. Maybe I’m trying to rush things. I been alternating spinach,kale,collards using about 50-60% greens and then fresh & frozen fruit. Not sure if my ratio is off but I’m not able to lose weight. Should I cut down on the fruit? I also started adding and rotating hemp protein,kelp, maca, ground chia seeds. My Dh complains as I force him to take them to work maybe I need to use more fruit in his. Still learning. I will be buying some vitamineral green soon from you! Thanks for all the info.
