Hi! Here’s what’s new, exciting, and thought provoking from our Life is NOYOKE world.

1. New blog posts, site updates, and other things we’re proud to be sharing
Good morning from Minneapolis!
Quick story from earlier this week:
I was getting my computer looked at, and the Genius helping me told me she had a Vitamix but never used it. She asked, “If you had to recommend just two things for me to make, what would they be?”
Such a good question.
My answer: Get the hang of blended green juice. And make yourself some queso.
So there it is. Probably should be the basis for an update to our welcome email for new Vitamix owners. (Or the idea behind a 14-day challenge?)
Okay, let’s get to the links.
Listen: An inspiring conversation with UK-based health coach Ryan Martin about how great life is when you don’t eat rubbish: (listen on iTunes) (listen on Stitcher)
Watch: New on our YouTube channel, up close with the limited-edition Black Stainless Metal Finish on Vitamix (and how it compares to Brushed Stainless and Graphite Metal).

2. New recipes we’re enjoying
We made cashew milk for the first time and it’s really tasty. No filtration bag necessary. Great as-is, in coffee, or with cereal.
+ We made olive tapenade. An easy, recipe-hardly-even-required recipe. Great if you need an easy appetizer.
3. Classic recipes we’re re-showcasing
The other night, we made a giant batch of this simple protein shake (with a side of popcorn) for a too-tired-to-do-anything-but-need-nourishing-and-delicious-but-not-pasta dinner: A simple protein shake with Vega
4. Vitamix news and updates we’re enjoying
If you’d rather read, here’s the scoop: You can get one of these for $399.95 (black or red; +$30 for Brushed Stainless). They’re branded as Certified Reconditioned, but we’re 99% sure they’re brand new, untouched, mint machines. My guess is that the only reason they are not priced at $599.95 is because they sat in a William & Sonoma warehouse and were returned to Vitamix HQ to make room for Ascent. Get one while you can.
