1. New blog posts, site updates, and other things we’re proud to be sharing
Good morning from Minneapolis!
Some delicious recipes this week.
But first, here’s something just for fun. A vlog!
Watch: It’s on our YouTube channel. Vlog: Making Grandma’s Pickles
(Related: Subscribe to our YouTube channel!)
Read: We published our July Vitamix Usage Report. All the thing we made in our Vitamix. Check it out!
Listen: ICYMI, with Thrival Nutrition on her podcast talking about being hungry, tired, and preggers. (listen on iTunes) (visit her website)
+ She recently used our Queso as a topper and shared on her site.
Okay, onto the recipes!
2. New recipes we’re enjoying
Iron Bites. They’re no-bake, easy-to-make, and feature nothing fake. Go make a batch, for goodness sake.
+ Baba Ghanoush: For when you’re feeling ambitious and missing the fresh tastes of the Middle East.
3. Classic recipes we’re re-showcasing
Frosty S’mores. Is it a smoothie? Is it a shake? Who knows. It’s a treat, for sure.
4. Vitamix news and updates we’re enjoying
We took over the Vitamix Instagram account earlier this week. It was a “story”, so if you didn’t already see it, you’ll have to wait for the next one. Here’s a behind the scenes from Our Instagram. It was both really stressful and really fun!
An update on both those exclusive deals.
- The $399 Pro 750 is sold out except for Brushed Stainless which is +$30.
- There are a few $399, all-touchscreen, 780’s left as of publishing.
Reminder: 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.
+ Planning to buy through us? Please use our → link to vitamix.com before you checkout and look for (06-NOYOKE) near the promotion code box to ensure we get credit. Thanks!
+ Below is the A3500 in Black Stainless Metal finish (video) we used in the aforementioned Insta takeover. Pretty sexy.

5. Articles, posts, and products from around the web we’re thinking about
We went to an animal sanctuary last weekend. Spring Farm Sanctuary, if you’re curious. A really fun, hands-on, and thought-provoking experience for all ages. Go!
Okay, all for now.
Thanks and good things,
Shalva and Lenny
P.S. On Sunday, we’ll be at Veg-End: Vegan Weekend at Linden Hills Farmer’s Market. Say hi if you see us!
Hadn’t noticed that you guys have a baby on the way, congratulations!
