1. Five High-Calorie Ingredients, 1 Tasty Smoothie
Maybe you’re sick. Maybe you’re too busy. Maybe you just had your braces tightened.
No, this video is certainly not for everyone.
But it seems like everyone knows someone who is having a hard time getting enough (healthy!) calories.
Hit that thumbs up 👍 if you appreciate the video.

2. Babies drinking green juice
Waffles, sugar cereal, and yogurt may be all your kids want for breakfast. So what do you do? There’s a long answer for people looking to make breakfast more healthy for their kids. But the short answer is this: Start ’em early. Here’s our little guy trying green juice for the first time. And at the end, his 3-weeks-older cousin showing how it’s done.
3. Popular on Our Instagram This Week
Here’s a post from Shalva that’s getting a lot of love.

“Fa-la-fel 🥙 Nothing better to serve non vegans in your plant-based home. Even the baby loves it!”
Editors note: We don’t have a recipe for this as of now. We buy boxed falafel. 🙂

4. Vitamix updates, demos, and deals
Vitamix voluntarily issued a recall on some of the 8-oz and 20-oz containers for Ascent and Venturist. We’re relieved that it wasn’t user-error when ours came off the base during use. But we’re disappointed they didn’t catch the issue before releasing the product to market. And still, they don’t appear to be taking full responsibility for missing the defect originally. Hopefully we see a true, full update to these personal containers because in addition to this issue, feedback overall on these accessory containers has been mixed.
