Carrot Cake Balls, Pumpkin Smoothie, Turmeric Latte, The Vitamix E310, and More!
Hi! Here’s what’s new, exciting, and thought provoking from our 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. New blog posts, site updates, and other things we’re proud to be sharing
Good morning from Minneapolis!
Want to see all the things we made in August (but didn’t necessarily share here in the newsletter)? Okay!
Want to see what we did this week? Okay!
See below. 🙂
2. New recipes we’re enjoying
Turmeric latte. We made this for an Instagram takeover we did on the @vitamix account. Did you know you can make this hot, nutrient-packed, caffeine-free drink in your Vitamix? Did you know you don’t need to peel the turmeric?
+ Carrot cake bites. Easy to make, delicious, and filling!
3. Classic recipes we’re re-showcasing
Pumpkin smoothie. My mother made this 21 days in a row a couple years ago.
4. Vitamix deals, news, and updates we’re enjoying
And here’s a fun little video of Shalva unboxing it.
+ 🇺🇸 USA shoppers: Few really good deals for right now on CR Vitamix Models:
+ 🇨🇦 Canada shoppers: $50 off S-Series
+ 🇬🇧 UK shoppers: £299 for a Certified Reconditioned Standard
Finally, and this is kind of a big deal, there’s been a big change with how our readers (you!) support us. Before, people would manually enter our Vitamix promo code into the box at checkout. But now, you must click our → link to vitamix.com just before checkout. That way, Vitamix knows we sent you. If it worked, you’ll see 06-NOYOKE appear. Same benefits to you (free shipping, $20 off Ascent, starter kit, etc.), just a different process. Here’s a fun little explainer video we made.
SUPPORT = 💚
Life is NOYOKE takes Shalva and I (Lenny) hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars every month to create and maintain.

5. Articles, posts, and products from around the web we’re thinking about
Honesty and forthrightness has long been my policy. It’s makes for an easier, better life. Now, apparently, it will keep you out of being forced to work in chicken plants. Here’s an article that gives you a sense of how despicable the factory farming industry is (without ever detailing the life-long suffering of the animals): “They thought they were going to rehab. They ended up in chicken plants.”
Oh! And from the department of news you may want to feel cynical about but shouldn’t: McDonald’s Goes Vegan (sort of). Here’s the scoop on the McVegan Burger.
Okay, all for now.
Thanks and good things,
Shalva and Lenny
P.S. This was a photo from our Instagram story takeover we did on the @Vitamix account this week. So fun!
