And why we call ourselves “The Mom and Pop Vitamix Shop”
Hey there! We’re Shalva and Lenny Gale at LifeIsNoYoke and we sell the Vitamix machine as affiliate partners.
We’re kind of like the roadshow demonstrators. Except we’re all online.
How does that work?
People use our links to buy their Vitamix through us (instead of directly from us).
And to be sure Vitamix knows, people click Life is NOYOKE Sent Me! just before checking out. (You *can’t* type it in; it won’t do the trick.)
Then, some people go the extra mile and notify us of their order; it’s the only way we can check to see if we got credit.
You have many choices of links to use. Here’s why you should consider using ours.

“How do you…?”
Have you heard of the Amazon affiliate program? It’s like that; Vitamix pays us a little commission when people make purchases with our links.
“You do this full time?”
Yes. We feel grateful every day to be doing this work.
“You going to do this forever?”
Hopefully! We don’t need much.
“Can I buy directly from you?”
You can buy directly through us by using our shopping links.
“Do you have a cookbook?”
Sure do: The Perfect Mix (It’s an eCookbook for now.)
“Are there other ways for me to support your work?”
Yes, here are a few.
“How did you get started with Vitamix?”
Lenny’s Vitamix story: I’d used egg white smoothies to lose weight and build muscle twice in my life. Once during high school for sports, and then again after college. During the latter transformation, I got my first Vitamix. It helped me step up my smoothie-making and culinary game, of course. But mostly, it made my healthy lifestyle stick. In 2011, when I was preparing to take the leap from Big Consulting and make health and wellness my work, I learned about an opportunity to join the Vitamix affiliate program.
Shalva’s story: Lenny left a Vitamix on my counter when we began dating. I loved experimenting with it and creating new recipes. My focus turned to making healthy choices in the kitchen, so I put down my IO psychology career to work on Life is NOYKE full time in 2016.
“Who are you?”
We are DIY introverts who left the corporate world to find joy and purpose with our work.
“Are you vegans?”
I am, she is not. We keep a plant-based kitchen; no animal products at all. But we eat without rules or judgment outside the home.
“What does Life is NOYOKE mean?”
Pronounced no-yolk, noyoke was originally wordplay. Think egg whites. They’re often used by people early in their healthy lifestyle journey. “Egg white omelet, please!” It’s this idea of small steps in the right direction that remains the core ethos behind Life is NOYOKE. Today, we use the Vitamix as a means to that end.
