Good morning from “they-are-forecasting-eight-inches-of-snow-this-weekend-wtf-it-is-April” Minneapolis!
Hope you had a nice week. 🙂
Here’s what’s new, exciting, and thought-provoking from the Life is NOYOKE world.
1. Vitamix Mother’s Day Sale
So as to not bury the lede, here’s the scoop on this year’s Mother’s Day Vitamix Sale. It’s begun! And in case you’re wondering, it’s more of an annual Spring saving event as it lasts over a month. This year, every model is at least $50 off. Select models up to $100 off. (Note, this year, we’re trying something new: Offering your choice of gift with purchase.)
2. Baby Food on the Local News
We were invited to do a segment on the local news: Farmers Market Baby Food. Check out the 5 minutes of morning show fun!
+ The original conversation with about baby food purees.
3. Smoothie Bowl Art
Bored with pretty, here are our latest smoothie bowls turned into elementary artwork.
This one thanking channel 9 using Carolyne’s Green as a base.
+ This PB&J bowl for National Sibling Day.
+ And this one that’s actually just pretty and may inspire you to try an Acai Bowl.
4. Articles we’re enjoying
Over-the-counter vitamins and other supplements are taken by a majority of people over 65. But do they work? Studies find they almost never prevent disease (and sometimes cause harm). From NYTimes: Older Americans Are ‘Hooked’ on Vitamins
+ Did Dr. Oz tell you to take those pills? From the archives here, one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever published: 12 things I learned from Dr. Oz
Friendly reminder to enjoy the sun when you get the opportunity (with sunscreen, of course!). Here’s a picture of baby soaking up the sun from our week on break.
Thanks for reading and have a good week,
Lenny and Shalva
