Dear Mark: How Primal is Hemp?

As I’ve always said, part of the Primal Blueprint’s power is its continuing evaluation and evolution. As a broad lens defined by tried and true physiological principles, the PB can effectively assess and (when appropriate) seamlessly accommodate “new”/rediscovered practices and foods. Readers send me questions all the time that help redefine or further confirm the […]

Weekend Link Love – Edition 79

The Food & Dining section of the NY Times talks goats, fainting goats. And if you want these goats to live, eat them. That’s right, eat them to save them. Not to be outdone by Food & Dining, the NY Times Business Section talks docs – documentaries about obesity. And who’s funding the latest fat […]

Chicken and Shrimp Soup

This week’s soup recipe comes from a military man who prefers to keep his real identity undercover. He did, however, decide to declassify his Chicken and Shrimp Soup recipe for the Primal Blueprint Cookbook Challenge, and we’re glad he did. The soup follows one of our favorite soup-making methods, which is throwing a bunch of […]

The smart ones among us, the marketers tell us, navigate this ominous world armed with the right sanitizing defense. Even the grimiest restroom, the […]

How to Find a Cowpooling Source

I was going back over the MDA archives this week, thinking about what went right and what went wrong with past posts. There are always going to be regrets when looking at past work, whatever its nature. That’s just how these things work. But this is the internets, not print, and I can quickly hop […]

It’s a Journey, Not a Race

By now, I’m sure you’ve been privy to the teeming hordes descending on cardio machines and health food stores across the country. Tofu is completely sold out; there’s a line out the door for the elliptical. The scent of desperate, hopeful sweat is in the air, and everywhere you look, folks sporting brand spanking new […]

Stuff That I Read (or Watch), And You Should Too

I recently received an email question from a knowledge-hungry reader. Mark, I’m becoming VERY interested in learning how the body works; what happens when we eat carbohydrates, the effects of antioxidants, etc. I was given a good introduction in “Good Calories, Bad Calories” and of course the 3rd chapter in your book, where you talk […]

Just when you think you’ve had every type of soup out there, something new comes along. Like this recipe for Kombu Egg Soup sent in by Aaron Blaisdell for the Primal Cookbook Challenge.
