Who We Are, The Best Things We Made, Mojitos in the The Aer Disc Container, Two Awesome Vitamix Deals, 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.
Hello from “Father’s Day Weekend” Minneapolis. 🙂
Every week when I sit down to compile this newsletter, the goal is to include something for everyone.
It’s a tough task, but not impossible.
For Vitamix owners, shoppers, and the handful of people who are neither but still (for some reason) like us. And, of course, something for our mothers.
Something for everyone.
It’s helpful to remind myself that “something for everyone” is not the same as “a thing for everyone.” This newsletter is far from that.
It’s also helpful to remind you who we are.
We, Shalva, the baby and I are a simple little family.
I, Lenny, am a blender salesman. Shalva is the get-stuff-done-mama-bear-manager-of-all-things.
Together, we’re just trying to find a balance. A balance between:
- Eat plants or eat junk
- Work hard or relax and enjoy
- Plan ahead or live in the moment
Not the passing-grade just enough.
But the point-before-returns-begin-to-diminish just enough.
Okay, that’s enough.
Thanks for subscribing to the newsletter and supporting our work.
P.S. Happy Birthday to my dad. 60 years old today!
1. Food inspiration
Another week, another acai bowl! Doing my best to make this one look realistic and not intimidating. 🙂
Another care-free presentation. It doesn’t need to be perfect! (This is made with a Carolyne’s Green as base.)
And finally, an excuse to make our mouthwatering (and easy!) ranch dressing: Taco salad featuring (store bought) veggie crumbles.
2. Mojitos in the Aer Disc Container
Watch: We made mojitos and they were delicious. (Request: Tap the thumbs up if you appreciate the video.)
In case you missed the details on the Vitamix Aer Disc Container.

3. Awesome Vitamix deal number one
This is one of the greatest Vitamix deals I’ve ever seen. Ends Sunday 6/17/18.
Got a message from another long-time Vitamix holdout and old friend of mine who just got a Vitamix:
“Maggie finally let me buy one. Said Happy Fathers Day, haha.”
Buy yours now (with free shipping).
Watch: Our QVC-style livestream (featuring 3 satisfying b-roll segments!) to get the scoop.
4. Awesome Vitamix deal number two
This is the deal we asked for! You can get the ultimate setup for almost $100 off!
It’s the 2018 Vitamix Summer sale.
5. Articles, links, and other products we’re appreciating
I love it when people poke fun at absurd crash diets and cleanses. Here’s this from McSweensy’s: Whole 30 Changed My Entire Relationship with Food Because I’m Dead Now
Thanks for reading and have a good week,
Lenny and Shalva
