Who we are, Wild Rice Soup, Really Good Smoothie, Living with a Vegan, Plant-Based Diet Mistakes, and more!
This is the online version of our weekly email newsletter. It features the latest updates to lifeisnoyoke.com, articles published, recipes we made, Vitamix buying advice for those considering, and links (generally plant-based-lifestyle-related) we’re thinking about. To get it delivered to your inbox on Fridays, you can subscribe right here.
Quick “who are we” if you’re new here (or have been here for a while and could use an update about what we actually do).
We’re Shalva and Lenny Gale, and the best way to describe what we do is this:
We’re a mom-and-pop blender shop.
Except we don’t have a storefront.
We like the flexibility and ability to mesh our lifestyle with our work.
The mom and pop blender shop.
Or, mom and pop Vitamix shop, since you’re familiar with the Vitamix machine.
As always, we appreciate you supporting our work.
Here’s to a happy and healthy 2019.

1. Byerly’s (vegan) Creamy Wild Rice Soup
It’s by far our most popular recipe. Perfect for these frigid days.
2. A really good smoothie
It was basically a pb&j smoothie with banana but for some reason it was really good this week. Here’s the tweet:
Really good smoothie this morning:
Frozen blueberries, strawberries, banana
