Cheese Video for Kids, Fancy Tomato soup, the Magic Hook, and more!
Hi! Here’s what’s new, exciting, and thought-provoking from the Life is NOYOKE world.
(This is the abbreviated online version of our weekly email newsletter, 5 Good Things. To get the full version delivered to your inbox on Saturdays, you can subscribe right here.)
1. News we’re proud to be sharing
Good morning from Minneapolis!
Hope you had a nice two months. We’ve had our hands (and hearts) full with our new baby boy. 🙂
Expect regular, weekly newsletters from us again. One change, though.
Newsletters will be arriving on Fridays.
We promise ourselves to *not* work on Saturdays. With a Friday delivery, we’re more likely to keep that promise.
So with that, here this week’s things we think you’ll appreciate.
2. New YouTube video we’re enjoying
The idea was to make videos for kids.
This is “the pilot.”
Let us know if we should “pick up” the series. 🙂
3. Classic recipes we’re re-showcasing
Have you tried our (fancy) tomato soup? It’s the 2nd most popular recipe on the site…
4. Vitamix deals for those considering
For more help ending the paralysis by analysis, check out our Vitamix model comparison guide.
As always, we appreciate you supporting our work by using our Vitamix promo code.

5. Links to things we’re thinking about
We rediscovered (and were saved by) this magical self-soothing tool this past weekend. It’s called a Thera Cane massager, and we just ordered one for our home. Like a foam roller, but more precise and more conducive to watching TV at the same time.
Okay, all for now.
Thanks and good things,
Shalva and Lenny
P.S. Shalva is still on maternity leave. During her time away, she’s continuing to do our Instagram. Hope you’re enjoying the less food-focused, more personal approach.
Hi 👋🏼 I’m Shalva. For the most part, I run this account. Lenny and I decided we want to share our real lives with you here, not some curated picturesque version of it. So here goes: •We run a blog and YouTube channel called lifeisnoyoke that specializes in vegan Vitamix recipes •Lenny is a vegan, our house is vegan, but I am not a vegan •I absolutely love the way I feel now that I’m mostly plant-based •We have a 7 week old baby, he’s adorable but a lot of work (hence the reason you’ve heard from us less) •I would normally post a beautifully made-up picture of myself, but I love the way I look as a new momma •Our account has been pretty whitewashed thus far, but we’re planning to just be ourselves from now on •Look for more stories, more this-is-what-we’re-actually-eating-today posts, and of course more of the little man! •Thanks for following us along in our journey 💚
