    Mandeep - the green bar maid

    Before we get to the good stuff…  I LIVED!!!

    hehe… sorry to be so dramatic, but I’ve been a weeeeee bit anxious the last week or so about a knee surgery that finally took place on Monday.  I had to repair a tear in my knee after an exuberant dancing incident last Halloween.  Thankfully all is well, and I didn’t even mope when the nurse told me I would NOT be getting the green smoothie I requested on my intake form. ;-)

    That’s okay… I’d made one the morning of the surgery, wrapped it up with a freezer pack and had it waiting in the car with my ride for when they released me in the afternoon.  And, after a night of fasting and a day of stress, I have to tell you THAT green smoothie was just about the best tasting one ever!

    While I won’t be doing any jigging again just yet, I AM able at long last to get back here to the keyboard to bring you a new ripple maker story from BiG. Read more »

    BiG Green Smoothie Ripple Makers: Andrea Sinclair




    - by Stacey Terry

    During our Believe in Green event, we challenged our participants to go out and make a difference in their own communities and spread the word about green smoothies to the most number of people!  The entire purpose of The Green Smoothie Queen is to spread the ripples of health… to change lives and health one green smoothie at a time.  And the only way that happens is for people to find out about our beloved lawnmower pulp and then try the gorgeous green gloop for themselves.

    With the co-operation of the incredible folks at Blendtec, we have a spanky and spinachy new Blendtec blender to give away to the person who touched the most lives through holding a green smoothie event of their own!

    I was just floored by the entries that came in.  I should have had someone there with a camera to take the photo of my face when I’d open up the entry e-mails and see what our participants had done!  I tell ya… it makes my heart expand and burst with optimism and joy when I see others reaching out and spreading the sunshine around.

    We had four official entries into our BiG Blendtec Green Smoothie Ripple-Maker contest!  Read more »

    by Stacey Terry


    Today I’ll share some of the great stories that came in for Believe in Green.  We asked our contest participants to tell us how green smoothies had made a difference in their lives.  Stories came from far and wide!

    It’s easy to make choices that will affect others and the planet in positive ways.  All it takes is a little thinking and maybe an effort to try something new!

    Take a gander at these green can-do-ditties:

    BiG 2010 Green Smoothie Recipe Contest – Our Winner!




    - by Stacey Terry

    Continuing on from yesterday’s announcement of our green smoothie smiles winner, I’m going to jump ahead to the recipe contest and serve you up with some free yummy nutritious green smoothie recipe entries!

    In honour of Believe in Green, for this contest we asked for recipes that were a little different.  We invited our green smoothie enthusiasts to make the most local and seasonal green smoothie they could depending on where they lived.

    We wanted our recipes to be green in more than just the nutritious way.  By using ingredients that were local, this pollution-busting lawnmower pulp would also have a smaller carbon footprint with saved transportation and storage energy.

    I kicked things off with the photo you see above, and here’s what I made:

    Personal pledges!  Amazing contributions!  Inspiring speeches!  Tears and testimonials!  AND… a BiG BiG BiG objective ACHIEVED!

    If you participated in the Believe in Green 2010 Challenge then THANK YOU for helping us create an event that touched soooo many!  And with a little extra effort and a few extra days, we made it to our goal!  And in the end, we raised $10 200.00 for The Lower East Side Girls Club! We’re just waiting to hear back from the Girls Club director to find and co-ordinate a time when Tera can make the drive from Montreal to New York and present the cheque in person! Our delightful Diva is in a flurry of activity right now as she is preparing both for the exciting Raw Mom Cooked Dad event *and* WISH (Women’s International Health Summit).  But we all agree that presenting the donation in person would be soooo fantastic!  If we can make that happen, we’ll be sure to take lots of photos to share!

    And after all the excitement of wrapping up BiG, being away for a bluegrass campout where I had THE TIME OF MY LIFE (stick around for a couple weeks and maybe there’ll be something juicy to tell you about… ;-) ) and getting the 21-day Green Smoothie Detox going (the long weekend was so hectic I still haven’t had time to close the sign-ups, so feel free to take advantage of my busy schedule and join us now for the transition week), I’m *finally*  getting back to the blog at last to share our BiG Winners over the next few days!

    So let’s start today with the first contest: Our Green Smoothie Smiles!
