Good morning from “wait-are-those-snowflakes-isn’t-it-almost-April” Minneapolis!
Hope you had a nice week. 🙂
Here’s what’s new, exciting, and thought-provoking from the Life is NOYOKE world.
Scheduling note: We’re off next week. We’ll be back on April 13th with some exciting news.
1. Meal plans (and grocery lists) done for you every week
We’ve been quietly working on a meal planning offering. Because who doesn’t just want Shalva to tell you what to buy and make for dinner? Will you sign up to be one of the first group members? Let us know.
2. Vitamix Recipes we made this week
+ Spring rolls (featuring our Thai Peanut Sauce).
+ And finally, a double batch of Queso that Shalva used in the lunch she packed me. (She shows her love with food.)
3. YouTube video we published
The Vitamix V1200 is exclusive to the Costco Roadshow Reps. (We can sell every single Vitamix model but this one.) So are we crazy to even talk about it? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
SUPPORT = 💚
Life is NOYOKE takes Shalva and I (Lenny) hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars every month to create and maintain.

4. Vitamix News & Deals (for those considering)
Here are a few Vitamix deals for those considering.
Learn: Why we love this Vitamix model enough to gift it to friends and family.
5. Cell phone silliness
A put-your-phone-down set of links this week:
What if I told you average Americans (and Canadians and UK residents, I’d imagine) spend 76 days per year on their mobile phone? Here’s an article from last year that probably underestimates the time spent today: U.S. consumers now spend 5 hours per day on mobile devices
And if suddenly wanting to hug your kid / spouse / pet didn’t make you want to put your phone down, here’s this: What are screens doing to our eyes—and our ability to see?
But putting it down may not be enough. Merely having your smart phone present (on the table) is enough to decrease productivity, worsen concentration, etc: Having Your Smartphone Nearby Takes a Toll on Your Thinking
Again, we’re putting our phone down next week to unplug and recharge. We’ll be back April 13th with some updates you’ll appreciate.
Thanks for reading and have a good week,
Lenny and Shalva
