Deck the Halls with Gingerbread Protein Balls!

Damn right, we’re decking the halls with protein balls! And yes, they do look more like reindeer turds than what you’d find in a typical holiday baking spread… But they taste amazing and they’re a helluva lot healthier than your Grandma’s shortbread! Any-ho-ho-ho, my clients often ask me how they can stay on track over […]

Michael Hutter EC3 Pro Wrestler on Jacked on the Beanstalk - Vegan Podcast

Why You Should NEVER Lower Your Standards + Podcast #25: Interview with Pro Wrestler EC3

Imagine you’re walking into the gym just like any regular, Tuesday morning.  You’re ready to train your regular 9:30 AM client.  Except this Tuesday is a special one. This Tuesday, as you walk into the gym and bark out “gimmee some squat jumps, Claude,” your eyes immediately fixate on the perfectly-sculpted, wild stallion pictured above. Yes, […]

My Top 5 Meatless Meathead Holiday “Wish List” Gift Ideas

Ah, the holidays. December is definitely cold as FRAWK here in Ottawa, Canada, eh?  But I really can’t imagine being anywhere else this time of year than inside my parents’ overly-decorated log home, surrounded by Mom’s gluten-filled treats and my loud, piss and vinegar-filled family. And it just wouldn’t be Christmas without us listening to […]

high protein no sugar added apple crisp vegan

High Protein Apple Crisp, Bruh

I feel like a loser even typing the name of this recipe post… And I definitely giggled like a school girl as I wrote “High Protein Apple Crisp” as the post title.  What can I say?  You know you’re a meathead when you’re dumping protein powder into apple crisp. 🙂 The truth, my fellow meatless […]

My #1 Prep-Friendly Tempeh Recipe

I can’t believe it’s taken me this many years to post my #1, “go-to” competition prep-friendly tempeh recipe. Perhaps it’s because this recipe has been made sooooo many times, it’s now become an ingrained part of me that I don’t even think about it anymore?  Or perhaps it’s because this tempeh recipe is just so […]

Podcast #14: The Sweat-i-sode (Sweat Episode)

Have you ever seen a more intense close-up of my sweaty face before?!  Me neither.  It both horrifies and attracts me. Nevertheless, I thought it only appropriate to kick-off this post with a very sweaty pic of me seeing as this week’s podcast episode is all about SWEATING! Yes, believe it or not, folks, both […]

the poop podcast Jacked on the Beanstalk vegan podcast

Podcast #12: How are Your Poops?

Most people (women especially) get a little shy when it comes to talking about their rides on the porcelain bus.  Unless of course, you’re vegan.  Then you’re talking about pooping almost as much as you talk about being vegan. 😉 Well, today on the Jacked on the Beanstalk podcast, we’re dedicating an entire episode to […]

High-Protein Low-Carb Low-Fat Vegan Acai Bowl purely inspired

High-Protein, Low-Carb, Low-Fat Acai Bowl

I remember when acai bowls were all the rage in 2015.  And I distinctly remember trying my very first one in Austin, Texas – a couple of days after I won my pro card. I’m sure the fact that I had been eating nothing but tempeh and asparagus for the last few months was a […]
