Good morning from sunny Minneapolis!
Hope you had a nice week. 🙂
Here’s what’s new, exciting, and thought-provoking from the Life is NOYOKE world.
1. New YouTube Video for Gift-Givers (plus a giveaway)
I’m a guy who has everything. Partly because my family and I have our health. Partly because I get myself what I need when I need it. Partly because I’m a minimalist and constantly want less things.
But gifts are important, even if they’re more important to the gift-giver (instead of the gift-receiver).
Well, here’s a fun video about gift ideas for the guy who has everything.
And we’re going to try something new.
A mini giveaway!
Leave a comment after you watch the video. At 8pm CST tonight, I’ll pick one of the comments at random as a winner. The winner will get a set of 9-piece stainless steel beverage straws.
Any comment will do. Or if you want to tell us the best or worst gift you ever got, we’ll especially enjoy reading those stories.

2. Dear Mama
Reminder that 5/13 is Mother’s Day and you can find our picks among all the offers on our big Vitamix Mother’s Day Sale page.
3. Last of this soup for the season
Probably the last mention of our Creamy Wild Rice Soup for the season. We made a double batch during last weekend’s April blizzard!
+ And in case you missed it, we put together a great story about it last weekend on our Instagram.
4. Decorative Smoothie Bowls
In celebration of my bday on Tuesday, Shalva made me this Acai Bowl.
5. A pasta article we’re thinking about
We’ve been indulging in pasta quite a bit lately. In fact, we’re going to Olive Garden tonight; it’s our guilty-pleasure-pick! In the spirit of pasta and indulgence, here’s an article that’s not changing our evening’s plans despite it’s questionable claims and source: Per Big Pasta: Pasta is Good For You
+ A classic of ours we’ll be referencing as we begin again on Monday: Video: How to Break an Addiction to Carbs
Thanks for reading and have a good week,
Lenny and Shalva
