I’ve been a health nutty for a while now and I love my Vitamix and Blendtec Blenders. They are the best tools to have in the kitchen when preparing whole foods that are tasty. I have been drinking green smoothies for almost 6 years and I love educating people about how it can turn your whole life in a new direction.
Green Smoothies are a not a diet but instead a way of life!
I started this site to Spread the Green Smoothie Love and to help teach people how easy it can be to get balanced nutrition with green smoothies.
My health journey began many years ago, but we will start in 2008. I was pregnant with my first (and only) son J. I had a few complications but nothing major. He was born fairly small but was beautiful and perfect! Shortly after bringing him home, I soon realized that something was wrong. He was presenting symptoms of digestion problems and it was tearing me up inside because I didn’t know how to make it stop. By the time he was two weeks old, with no help from the medical field, (surprise) I found that he was allergic to Dairy and Gluten. (Full Story to Come)
Since I breastfed full time, I went on the GFCF diet and ALL was well. If you have any experience as a parent of children with allergies or allergies yourself you will understand that you will become an expert at label reading. I give my son the credit for the way we eat now, because it launched me into educating myself in the whole foods world and finding out what is really going on with our food and how to properly take care of your bodies.
My Sister Tiffany inspired me to study more about nutrition and understanding how the body heals with food. She has a wonderful success story about how she healed her body with nutrition and lost over 70 lbs. Some day I might write about her story here.
My Husband inspired me by encouraging me to explore the world of blogging and nutrition and to go after my dreams.
My Parents inspired me by teaching me that you can do anything you want to by operating great principles in business and in life.
(be prepared this one is going to sound corny)
Oprah inspired me it was on one of her shows I was watching that I had the light bulb moment about whole foods.
If you have been inspired to do something or make a life change don’t be afraid to make the leap it might be the beginning to something big!
Get out there and do something AWESOME! (Drink Some Green Smoothies while your at it)

What I’m Doing
When I am not blending green smoothies I am usually at home with my husband and two kids. I have a son and a brand new baby girl born on Labor Day of 2013. Thankfully both my kids love green smoothies. (If your kids don’t, just be patient, sometimes it’s just finding the right recipe that fits their taste buds.) I love my day-job where I work full-time helping my parents run a tire recycling business.
I am also busy putting together a Green Smoothie Challenge. My goal is to develop an easy way for people who want to start drinking green smoothies. There will be weekly recipes sent out, a support forum and lots and lots of other info about green smoothies. Coming Soon in January of 2015!
