Chocolate (protein) Shakes, Detox Salad, Wild Rice Soup, Vitamix A3500 Two Years Later, Two Awesome Vitamix Deals, Chickpea Everything, 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.
Last week, I said “no newsletter next week.”
But here we are?
- Lots of new Vitamix owners here. Need some getting started recipes!
- A new YouTube video and a couple Vitamix deals I’m excited about.
- These newsletters make me feel productive during those weeks where you’re working your butt off but don’t have much to show for it. (I know, selfish.)
Okay, all for now!
Thanks and talk soon,
Lenny and Shalva
1. Chocolate (protein) shakes
Someone recently asked about how to make their protein shake less chalky. The secret is to add oats!
Here’s the quick version of our go-to protein shake.
milk of choice – 1 cup (240 mL)
rolled oats – 2 Tbsp. (10 g)
protein powder – 1 scoop (we like Vega)
frozen banana (peeled) – 1 whole
peanut butter – 1 Tbsp (16 g)
ice – 1 cup (217 g)
(optional) flaxseed – 1 Tbsp (7 g)
(optional) cocoa powder – 1 Tbsp (7 g)
Note: You can make this without protein powder. Just add a date or two for some sweetness!
2. Detox Salad (for Sunday night)
In honor of our favorite drinking holiday in Chicago, here’s something to make on Sunday night after celebrating (and recovering from) St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s the recipe and video demo for Detox Salad!
3. Creamy Wild Rice Soup
This soup has slowly gone viral and is now the most-visited page on our entire site. Make it before soup season is over!

4b. Two Awesome Vitamix Deals!
Summarized from our deals page, these are both awesome.

Deal 2: $299 ($C399) for an E310 until Sunday. If you want new and it’s just you, grab one of these!
