1. New blog posts, site updates, and other things we’re proud to be sharing
Good morning from Minneapolis!
One of our most beloved recipes, Creamy Wild Rice Soup, went viral this week.
As a result, we have a ton of new readers from Clean Food Dirty Girl. If you’re one of them, welcome!
If you’ve been around for awhile, thanks for the continued support. We really to appreciate you.
The big, non-recipe item this week is a recap of our September Vitamix usage.

And with that, let’s get to the incredible things we made this week.
2. New recipes we’re enjoying
Red Velvet Shake, pictured below as a smoothie bowl. Quite delicious and closely related to the other smoothie recipes we have inspired by Shalva’s love for cupcakes.
+ Sweet Potato Muffins. You won’t believe all the good stuff hiding in these tasty muffins. Batch your breakfasts for the week.
3. Classic recipes we’re re-showcasing
Soyaki Sauce. You get points for making yourself or loved ones stir fry. You get tons of extra points for using a homemade sauce (even if it only requires two fresh ingredients).
4. Vitamix deals, news, and updates we’re enjoying
Some really good deals right now, Vitamix shopping friends:
🇺🇸 USA shoppers:
🇬🇧 UK shoppers: £299 for a Certified Reconditioned Standard.
(If you were curious, we used the new E310 (review) and the A3500 (review) for this week’s recipes. Both are chosen ones in our guide for figuring out which Vitamix to get. Isn’t it crazy that the ingredients below made those delicious muffins from above?)
SUPPORT = 💚

5. Articles, posts, and products from around the web we’re thinking about
I do must-go smoothies and Shalva instructs me which Tupperware’d leftovers to eat (and when), yet we still throw away a decent amount of spoiled food. And we’re not alone. American consumers throw away 27 million tons of food each year. From WaPo: Why Americans have stopped eating leftovers.
Okay, all for now.
Thanks and good things,
Shalva and Lenny
P.S. We’ll be going on a short break beginning sometime in the next couple weeks or so. (See below.)
