Variety Pack Blendbar:
As a college student, these bars have been life changing! While at school I don’t have the resources to make my own smoothies and am consistently on the go. I like to try to eat healthy but there are very few items on the market that are healthy and fit my lifestyle. Not only are BlendBars healthy but they also taste SO good. My personal favorite is the Green Smoothie — it’s not too sweet and has the bet texture.

The power of peer influence is impressive. I’d been drinking green smoothies regularly for several months, but had yet to convince my children to participate. One day I was looking at www.greensmoothiegirl.com, and my children, ages 4-12, were looking over my shoulder. They saw a picture of Emma, flexing, with her green smoothie, and my daughter said, Wow—she’s buff!” That day they all had a small glass of green smoothie for the first time! I guess kids really will drink them.

Variety Pack Blendbar: Delicious…convenient…satisfying
I loved the taste and convenience of blender bars…easy to grab when going to work or an outing with the grandkids. The chewiness also makes them very satisfying, also. My grandkids loved them as they are used to daily green smoothies.

Green Smoothie Blendbar: Recommend trying!
Usually sensitive to dates, I had reservations about even trying the bars. Since GSG offers a 30 day money back guarantee, I figured I didn’t have anything to lose. So glad I tried them. Healthy ingredients, convenient, taste good, and satisfying. Will be keeping them stocked. Recommend trying!

Green smoothies are now a daily part of my life!
Green smoothies are now a daily part of my life! I have much more energy now and GS is a complete meal, more nutritious than eating out! I have been a vegetarian for 30 years and this has definitely improved my health! As a teacher (now retired) and a lifeguard for the Kentucky State Park System for 32 summers, green smoothies help me to stay in great shape!

Variety Pack Blendbar: Pleasantly surprised
I actually liked these !! I haven’t tried very many similar products where I found I enjoyed the taste. Usually I put up with the taste because of “supposed ” health benefits. I did not share these with my kids- I kept them for myself-sorry kids!

Chocolate Dipped Smoothie Blendbar: Extraordinarily Delicious!
These chocolate dipped smoothie bars are perfect for my lifestyle! I don’t snack often, but when I need a snack during a busy work day, I love that I am eating great quality food with lots of nutrition. These bars taste so much better than a candy bar, and they make me feel supercharged after eating them!

Profound Feelings of Gratitude
My son was in one of Robyn’s university classes last year, and she had the class members over to her home for green smoothies. He thought it was fabulous and phoned me and wanted me to sign up for 12 Steps to Whole Foods. We were already not eating soda, caffeine, white flour or sugar, etc. and made our own salad dressing, ate meat and dairy sparingly, and ate salad and vegetables daily.
We began drinking smoothies immediately, both green (Ch. 1) and hot pink (Ch. 10), and it has been over a year now and we continue to do this on a daily basis. I always have spinach and vary the greens, such as kale; red, green, or rainbow chard; different types of kale; or collard greens. I also vary the fruits seasonally.
My husband and I immediately felt as if we had more energy and many days I have a green smoothie for breakfast and a pink smoothie for lunch.
I have passed the information to many friends and family members and was especially interested in the program to help educate our children and grandchildren. Many are following the program, having purchased blenders and have green smoothies on a daily basis. As Robyn states, people are healthier, sickness is avoided, meals are easy to prepare, and family members are happy and satisfied. My friends who have children who are gluten intolerant have really been appreciative of the information that has been passed on to them — they feel that it is very hard to come up with food choices that are satisfying. Some are college students and one mother said that the smoothies would be such a blessing during this busy time of their lives.
From 12 Steps, I learned about not eating soy — we were drinking soy milk and having tofu occasionally and have eliminated it completely. I also was unaware of coconut water, coconut oil, and flax oil, which we purchase and store and use daily. Per Robyn’s blog, I use it as a moisturizer on face and skin. I also learned about alkaline water and hope to have a system soon. We were using filtered water but now see the benefit of making more changes. I also learned about kefir and use goat’s milk kefir since cow’s milk is very mucous forming to me.
I like all of the recipes I have tried and have learned that by looking at Robyn’s, I can easily adapt many of my own recipes and make them healthier.
I am impressed and grateful for Robyn’s careful research and study on health matters. She gives the sources so that we can do further study and continue the learning process and I have read many of the books on her recommended list. I feel that from her passionate desire to share her information and educate mothers in the proper way to nourish their families, she has gained the confidence and respect of those who hearken to her counsel
The chapter on gardening is wonderful to help us expand our abilities and be self sufficient through home production and storage. We often have house guests and many take Robyn’s book, The Green Smoothies Diet, as they retire to their room.
I always have requests of “Could we have that for breakfast?” This weekend a professor is here from a university who will be speaking at a management society meeting and he already has heard of green smoothies and is eager to take it to his wife who only prepares organic foods for her family. He asked for the website and wants to learn of this new aspect of nutrition.
I cannot end without expressing gratitude. Many years ago my little brother who was 8 at the time gave me a small calendar with beautiful quotes for Christmas. One was a Chinese proverb that GRATITUDE has three forms: a feeling in the heart, an expression in words, and a giving in return.
Please know of the profound feelings of gratitude, Robyn, for all that you have done and continue to do, and know that words cannot properly express my gratitude for the gift you have given to so many, and may we extend our gift of friendship, support to you, and prayers as you continue to expand our horizons.

Cellulite Gone! 7 lbs. Lost!
I am a 55-year-old female who began the detox at the weight of 126 lbs. I have been vegetarian for a few years and eat a pretty clean diet. I don’t drink alcohol, the only caffeine I drink is in green tea, and I don’t eat sugar.
However, over my lifetime I have been exposed to environmental toxins as well as pharmaceutical concoctions involving dentistry and Graves’ disease. I had been recommended by a shamanic healer about a year ago to cleanse every organ in my body. I did a series of colonics along with a parasite cleanse but I stopped there. Most cleanse programs on the market detox independent organs and most of them seem to be a kit.
They hardly recommend to even alter your diet. These detoxes never seemed right to me so I was at that crossroads of what to do. I stumbled across GSG and looked into the protocol. It seemed perfect for me.
The timing was right and then I got the brainstorm to enlist my 21-year-old college daughter to join me. I always worry about the genetics of her generation being weaker due to all the FDA-approved food, cleaning supplies and personal products they are exposed to. Plus, I felt it would be a great bonding experience for the two of us. She jumped on board with me immediately.
We spoke every day: she lives in New Orleans and I live in Jackson, MS, and we text messaged each other support when we felt weak. We listened to the group phone calls. We both would share what insight we gained either from the GSG daily emails, the forums or the online talks and chats. We shared with each other our experiences with the recipes.
She came home for a visit prior to Phase Two and we both cooked the recipes for each of us and went to the grocery store together. She would email me the grocery list for each phase to make it easier for me. Prior to the GSG Detox, my daughter was always tired. The first day on the program she could not believe her energy level and how she would jump out of bed and get things done.
I felt a surge in not only energy, but also in inner joy. Don’t get me wrong: I struggled with the first day, just being hungry in the middle of the night, the second day of the watermelon cleanse, and then the after-effects of the olive oil and lemon juice liver detox day.
But it was all worth every second. I love how my clothes fit me; I feel more peaceful. Oh yeah, and this is huge: since I was 5 years old, I remember having cellulite on my thighs. I remember sitting on the front porch swing of our home and looking down at my legs wondering what those puckers were in my skin. About 10 days into the GSG program, I was blow drying my hair, with my head bent over and looked at my legs. Now, I practice yoga 6 days a week so I am in that position a lot and I know how my legs look. Well, that morning they looked different, in a good way—they weren’t as saggy. I pushed the skin together to see if the cellulite was still there. It wasn’t. I pushed my skin together over all the parts of my body that had cellulite previously, and it was gone! The cellulite never really bothered me that much but I sure do like it not being there. I can only attribute it to being the fact that the toxins that were stored in my fat cells were pushed out!
I have recommended the GSG Detox to anyone who will listen to me. I am actually sad that today is the last day. I am excited to incorporate the recipes that we used in the detox program into my everyday life and I ordered the GSG Menu Planner to keep me on the straight and narrow! All I can say is, thank you, Robyn, and your colleagues, for all your hard work in developing this program! It was easy to follow, well planned out, and your program incorporates cutting-edge knowledge in the healing field.

Love the Practical Approach
I have been reading Robyn’s blog for a few months and then attended a class she taught about green smoothies. It has been just over a month but we are drinking green smoothies daily and I’ve already converted a few friends. I can’t help but smile as I watch my 5 kids drink their smoothies loaded with veggies and fruits every day.
I bought the 12 Step program shortly after I started my new green smoothie habit. I had already watched all of the YouTube videos and read everything on GreenSmoothieGirl.com. I just couldn’t get enough. I have read so many books and articles on healthy eating and this feels like a breath of fresh air. I find some of the same things I’ve learned elsewhere but the 12 Steps is much easier and enjoyable to read and follow.
I love the practical approach. I love that Robyn is sensitive to the time and money constraints that are part of real life. The 12 Step program is simple, affordable, and doable even for a busy mom with 5 kids. We are just getting started but I’ve made the Chocolate Beet Cake (Ch. 11) along with several different smoothies and some fabulous salads. I’m so excited to implement each of these steps throughout the coming year and record the benefits that we experience from each upgrade to our diet.
The 12 Steps program is loaded with information. I bought a freezer and am already planning for my garden next year with all of this new information in mind. It has really changed the way I look at food and food preparation.
I can’t thank you enough for the time and effort you’ve put into sorting through all of the information available and bringing the most relevant and useful information into one program that can be followed by anyone. Perhaps the biggest challenge is to take it one step at a time and not get overwhelmed by trying to do it all at once. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The Best Detox I Have Done! Sleeping Better, Thinking Better, and Feeling Better!
The GreenSmoothieGirl Detox was just what I was looking for. I lost 5 lbs, which I consider awesome! I have a chronic thyroid illness that causes many different reactions in my body. This detox was perfect! It was gentle and I feel amazing.
First, I finally gave up diet soda. That is a battle of its own. As a result, I started sleeping better. My constantly foggy brain finally cleared up and I feel able to function to full capacity. It has been years since I have been able to think so clearly! I have had chronic swelling for the past year, and after two weeks on the detox, I could finally see my feet again. I went through an emotional detox, which my husband did not appreciate, but after two days, I felt free and amazing.
I have a large amount of weight to lose, so 5 lbs. does not seem significant; however, my clothes fit well and I received many compliments on how I look. Lastly, my skin feels so soft and smooth. After two days, my skin was soft and had a “glow” to it.
I loved the detox because it was food that I typically eat. I was very fortunate because much of the food I needed was ready to pick from our garden. The support of the program was so good because it provided information and reminders. I never felt deprived or never felt as though I was missing something. It was the best detox I have done!
