THE ULTIMATE ASS-TASTIC WORKOUT

Of course we ALL want and strive to create a nice, tight ass but hate to say that a perfectly-sculpted arse takes work!!  I can, however, truthfully state that a great way to develop a fabulous vegan rump roast (I’m talkin’ Field Roast quality) AND increase athletic performance without the use of any gym equipment is through […]

THE (DAIRY-FREE) CHEESE GRATER AB WORKOUT

Abs…  So hard to get ‘em and so easy to lose ‘em.  I love how people think a washboard stomach can so easily be obtained from 100 crunches every night.  If you haven’t heard countless fitness pros say it a million times, here’s once more: ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN.  Or here’s an even […]

ALL-YOU-NEED-IS-AN-EXERCISE-BALL WORKOUT

Here is another killer at-home style workout that doesn’t require anything except your fine self and an exercise ball!  I originally created this program for my dearest mommy to help get her swimsuit-ready for our family trip to Cuba last year.  It really targets the core, glutes and legs.  Do four sets of 15 reps for […]

SUPER SIMPLE SLOW COOKER BEANS

I love my good ol’, trusty crock pot.  Well, I should add that I certainly don’t enjoy how it makes my entire apartment reek like onions for DAYS– but using a slow cooker is oh-so convenient AND so damned easy!  So alas, I endure the strong smell of stew that lingers on my clothes and […]

EASY & GUILT-FREE RAW VEGAN PEAR PIE

  Well my bodybuilding competition is finally over which means it’s time to get back into my healthy vegan baking!  Those of you who know me know that I’m a HUGE dessert addict and I still can’t believe I managed to give up sugar for so long in order to win that show! And well, now that […]

HEALTHY CARROT & MOLASSES MUFFINS

Well I just woke up and when I looked into my fridge I noticed a bag of carrots that were starting to look pretty dried out so I wanted to make use of them ASAP.  I decided to make some “healthy” carrot muffins for breakfast.  I sweetened them with iron and magnesium-rich molasses, didn’t use […]

WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH ALL THIS F*#%ING JUICER PULP?

It’s me, “Salsa Sam” Shorkey, and since my recent VERY positive juice cleanse experience, I’ve been enjoying a green juice every morning.  In doing so, I’ve also been trying to come up with uses for the copious amounts of wasted pulp!  I saw a “pulp cracker” recipe on my friend Danny David’s page aka “Raw Fitness Guy” […]

Vanilla Oat Protein Balls

On June 8th, 2013, amateur vegan bikini competitor and Team Vega member Samantha Shorkey proved the awesome strength plants can provide when she won first place in her first-ever fitness competition in British Columbia, Canada. Building strong, lean muscles on a vegan diet is not as hard as you might think! Jacked on the Beanstalk is a […]

Pineapple & Coconut Protein Balls

High protein, low-fat, and all natural!  Have a couple of these babies pre-workout or when you’re craving something sweet.  Just try to keep it to a couple. (Easier said than done, I know!) Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain that aids digestion and helps prevent inflammation AND muscle soreness.  It’s also a good source of […]
