Vegan Competition Prep Tempeh Recipe

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 […]

zero waste vegan podcast

Podcast #16: It Ain’t Easy Being a “Zero Waste” Vegan

Ain’t that the truth, eh, Kermie!? And it’s funny because I’ve always thought of myself as being pretty eco-conscious seeing as I’m a) VEGAN and b) recycle.  But apparently I’m not quite as “green” as I like to think I am.  And I’m definitely nowhere near living a “zero waste” life (whatever that even means, […]

toxic chemicals have no power over me

Removing All Forms of Toxicity From Your Life

Who knew that reading Joseph E. Pizzorno’s “The Toxin Solution” would change my life in every way possible? Yes, what started as a late-night Google search for “natural period cramp remedies” somehow quickly turned into a complete overhaul of every beauty treatment, cleaning product and food item in my apartment.  And yes, even an overhaul […]

sweating podcast boob sweat

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 […]

spiritual energy vegan podcast

Podcast #11: The Energy Episode + Okja Review

Namaste, my vegan hippie meathead friends. Is your chakra feeling this animated, little energy-emitting dude I put up or what? 🙂 Well this week’s “Jacked on the Beanstalk” podcast episode just might be our favourite one yet! And it’s not because we’re even that “spiritual” or even into alternative hippie energy stuff like healing crystals.  Although […]

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 […]

Podcast #10: Sugar Detox Results and Recap

I’m sure the anticipation has been killing you but our one-week sugar detox experiment is finally over (thank God) and you might be surprised to learn which Shorkey sister finished strong and which one failed miserably. Apparently giving up sugar was a lot harder than we anticipated (even for those of us who’ve been on strict […]

sugar addiction podcast

Podcast #9: The Shorkey Sugar Addiction

How perfect is this picture seeing as Oreos are vegan AND our newest podcast episode is all about sugar addiction?!?!? Yes, that’s right, kids!  Both of us Shorkey sisters are full-blown, admitted sugar addicts!  I’m going to claim that Sarah is worse than me (even though I’m not much better.)  Or maybe I just cope […]

vegan breakup compassion is a relationship killer

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. I’ve just ended a relationship due to my veganism. My heart hurts.  This was a guy who I’ve known since […]

Herbaland Vegan Protein Gummy Discount Code SAMSHORKEY

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 […]
