Yes I used to love eggs, Cashew Cream Cheese, Peach Buzz Sorbet, Louisiana Gumbo, 48 oz Ascent containers, and More!
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!
A few incredible new things to make this week. But first, another quick little vid for ya: Yes, I used to love eggs.
Okay, onto the recipes!
2. New recipes we’re enjoying
Cashew cream cheese (plus vegan lox!). It tasted as good as it looked. Nothing like what it really is. Thrilled to have this killer combo back in our lives.
+ Peach Buzz Sorbet. Peaches and champagne. Get after it.
3. Classic recipes we’re re-showcasing
Louisiana gumbo. Totally revamped. Paula Dean would be proud. (Or the opposite? This recipe is butter and cruelty free.)
4. Vitamix news and updates we’re enjoying
The 48-ounce (1.4L) Ascent containers, are finally available. They’re narrow-bodied and unlike the 8 and 20 oz containers, the 48’s have a removable lid plug and tamper for traditional, yet smaller-batch tasks. We’re really excited about these! We have both the wet and dry versions on the way. But if you’re going with just one, we recommend the wet. (Note: Being without a smaller, secondary, narrow-bodied container for our Ascent is the only reason we’ve kept our Legacy Pro 750 around. We had a 32 oz container for it, which served the same purpose as a 48; smaller batches of nut butters, ice creams, etc. Below may be one of the last times we use the good ‘ol 32, a size they’re not making for the Ascent.)
+ Here’s the new YouTube vid for those planning to get a Vitamix at some point: Where to get your Vitamix. (Summary: We’d love if you bought through us with promo code 06-007938, but totally get it if something makes more sense for you. We just want you to get one and use it like we do!)
Life is NOYOKE is our vegan Vitamix recipes, basically. When you use links from our site to vitamix.com or vitamix.ca and enter our promotion code 06-007938, we get credit for purchases and earn a small commission. That helps support our mission of accelerating worldwide adoption of a plant-based diet and is greatly appreciated. Thank you. — Shalva and Lenny Gale
5. Articles, posts, and products from around the web we’re thinking about
I’ve received grief about this in the past. But whenever possible, I prefer to use (and drink, obviously) filtered water. It tastes better! Maybe this is why: Plastic fibres found in tap water around the world, study reveals.
Okay, all for now.
Thanks and good things,
Shalva and Lenny
P.S. We’ll be at TC Veg Fest today (dressed more casually than the pic below). Say hi if you see us!
