Green Smoothie Inspiration: Hilda Quintanilla – Imperial, California, USA
“I started drinking green smoothies on a regular basis in July 2012 [one month ago as of this writing]. I needed to lose weight and I wanted more energy. I was pre-diabetic and suffering from low thyroid.
I have shed 40 pounds so far (in one month), and I have tons of energy and stamina. I’m losing weight and gaining so much health for the first time in years. And this is after I tried almost every diet out there and failed.
My blood work results changed significantly. My blood sugar dropped from 169 to 94. My doctor is impressed and I no longer take pre-diabetes medication. My thyroid level is within normal range. My skin is clearing up and I feel great!
[Editor's Note: Not all diabetics will respond the same way to green smoothies or large servings of fruit. Always work with a doctor and monitor your blood sugar levels. Never assume that what works for one person will also work the same way in your own body.]
I move soooo much faster and I get a full nights rest. My overall being is great!
I drink 2-3, 16-ounce green smoothies per day in my Vitamix. My typical green smoothie recipe includes spinach, banana, strawberry, orange, cinnamon, chia seeds, flax seed and water. I fill my Vitamix, then pour the smoothie into mason jars and refrigerate. I drink them throughout the day.
My overall diet is vegan, whole food and plant-based. I juice and make smoothies as well.
I share my health journey on Facebook and after seeing my results, MANY have jumped on board and are even asking me to cook for them and make their juices and smoothies!
I would never have tried green smoothies before, and now I can’t live without them – literally!”
