1. New recipe posts we’re drooling over
If you have acute or chronic lower back pain, you should not seek advice from me. The only certification I ever received was a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license. But here’s what’s important: I jump out of bed every morning at 5 AM eager to make things like this to help people like you. So despite not being a licensed medical professional (and therefore am only giving you ideas to discuss with your doctor), you can know that I am reasonably intelligent, hard-working, and passionate about helping people live the lifestyle they deserve. So with that, here’s this: Lower Back Pain Relief Juice (a delicious placebo)
+ Here’s a delicious alternative to plain ol’ hummus: (Bright) Beet Hummus.
+ Something to keep you warm after the (cold) news coming next week from the White House about a border wall: Mexican Hot Chocolate
2. Classic recipe we’re re-showcasing
Highlighting some of our awesome followers who are living the life and have made NOYOKE recipes this week. (Do, too, #lifeisnoyoke so we can see what you made!)
First, Baby Avi with some vegan (and therefore pareve) cornbread.
+ Nurse Lori dug up a recipe in dire need of an update, Vitamix Vodka Sauce. Thanks for putting it back on our radar.

5. Articles, posts, and products from around the web we’re thinking about
Our friend (and published cookbook author), Kathy, has been making delicious vegan plates for forever at Happy Healthy Life. But she recently started an occasional newsletter featuring her best new posts. Join her!
The other week, Jay sent a quick vid of his 2-year old son looking into the camera and narrating himself make a green smoothie. It was awesome. Since then, we have newfound motivation to create with kids in mind.

Okay, all for now.
Thanks and good things,
