In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Lenny and Shalva Gale about how life is no yoke and all things power blenders. If you are plant-based or vegan, chances are you have a blender. Knowing how to use your blender to its full capacity is key. Using a power blender to make soups, smoothies, sauces, and juices are going to save you a ton of time…and even money too. So whether you’re cooking for one, a large family, young kids, or mature adults, you’ll get tips and recipe ideas in this show to make life that much easier. And if there is anything we learned that was driven home during this show, it’s to take the 30 seconds to properly wash your container after each use. It’s made a world of difference in our lives already.

Lenny and Shalva Gale, also known as Mr. and Mrs. Vitamix, are the couple behind Life is NO YOKE. They mesh work and life passionately by promoting a daily blend! Lenny left a consulting job and CPA license to start Life is NO YOKE in 2012. Today, Mr. Vitamix spends most of his working hours helping people buy their Vitamix and advocating for a whole food, plant-based lifestyle. His partner in life and biz, Shalva, left a corporate training job and her master’s degree in psychology to join Life is NO YOKE full time in 2016. Mrs. Vitamix spends most of her working hours creating with the Vitamix and advocating for reducing our reliance on animal products.
