A story from the other night, two of the best things we’ve ever made (plus one really good one), and more!
Hi! Here’s what’s new, exciting, and thought provoking from our Life is NOYOKE world.
(This is the online version of our weekly email newsletter, 5 Good Things. To get it 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
This is the last newsletter from Chicago for a bit.
Hawaii again? 🙂
Nope. We’re packing up and moving to our hometown — Minneapolis, MN. Both sets of parents live there and we figure it makes sense with baby Gale on the way.
Anyway, we have a fine slew of recipes for you. They’re all fabulous.
But just this one thing first.
As always, thanks for reading and being a part of this.
Lenny and Shalva
2. New recipe posts we’re drooling over
One of our favorite dips to date: Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus. (The story I encourage you to read from above is actually in this post. Read it.)
+ We’re calling this ice cream Bermuda Sorbet. It’s the best thing we’ve ever made.
3. Classic recipe we’re re-showcasing
A simple green smoothie with kale and without a clever name: Apple Banana Kale Smoothie.
4. Vitamix news and updates we’re enjoying
+ I added a some insider info on why this deal actually exists on our just updated 780 review page. Here’s a summary: Guys, exclusive deal alert on the 780. You can get one of these for $399.95. They’re branded as Certified Reconditioned, but I’m 99% sure they’re brand new, untouched, mint machines. My guess is that the only reason they are not priced at $719.95 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. I’m being told price is going up on 8/1.

Okay, all for now.
Thanks and good things,
