Is Compassion a Relationship Killer?

Well here I am, once again, airing my dirty “dating” laundry over the internet.  Tears are literally streaming down my face as I type this.  My breath is short and fast yet heavy and winded all at once.

Fave Find: Vegan Protein Gummies

It’s not often that I approach a company to let me promote their product.  I’ll be honest and admit that I do receive a fair number of emails from vegan companies wanting to send me free product in exchange for promo.  And sometimes, I end up getting some pretty sweet swag out of the deal. But […]

Tofu Bocconcini Salad: The ULTIMATE Vegan Meathead Salad

Do you ever have one of those awesome recipe creation moments where you think “Good Lord I am THE most brilliant and ingenious person on Earth!?!?”  I do all the time.  And today was one of ’em. Today, I created a surprisingly rich-tasting AND delicious, high protein vegan bodybuilding meal that was both low in calories AND […]

Podcast #1: Jealousy & Unhealthy Comparisons to Others

Welcome to the very first Jacked on the Beanstalk Podcast Episode! How exciting, eh?! It’s kind of a long and boring one perhaps.  But that’s only because I wanted to kick it off properly with an intro and the backstory as to why I’m (Sam Shorkey) launching into the podcast world. Long story short, in […]
