I always believe in my products. Not just in the “I believe that they’ll succeed” sense, but in the “I believe that these products serve a purpose and fulfill a need in people’s lives” sense. Frankly, that’s why I promote them, and why I’m able to do it with a clear conscience: because I know I’m making a difference (however small and localized it may be), or at least trying to make one. And so here we are, in the final hours of the Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings giveaway extravaganza. (I don’t think I’ve ever used that word – “extravaganza” – before in a serious way, so I’m trying it out for a change. What do you think?) If you’ve just been putting off the order for whatever reason, here’s your cue to go order a copy. If you haven’t yet been convinced, allow me to give you a few reasons why I think you should order the book. Give them an honest appraisal; that’s all I ask.
Okay, on to the top 10 reasons why you should order the new book:
First of all, I think we can all agree that Primal food is a solid foundation of taste, nutrition, satiety, density, and volume. When you put a piece of well-cooked grass-fed steak, free of sugary salty soybean oil-infused sauces and unnecessary breading in your mouth, you appreciate that this is how meat was meant to be. When you use fresh vegetables, kale that bites back and asparagus that snaps in your mouth and cooked carrots that manage to be both tender and crispy at once, you know the goodness of produce. And these fill you up, they nourish, they enrich your life. Still, though, we humans possess the ability to perceive and appreciate a nearly infinite range of flavors and textures. Hundreds (if not thousands) of cuisines and flavors beckon, and we should probably entertain their advances. If we don’t, if we eat the same things all the time, we may run into food fatigue.
I’m probably a bad example of this, because I’m the type of guy who’d be pretty happy with just ten or so foods for the rest of my life. Still, even I like to change things up now and again. And it seems I’m not alone. This edition of Dear Mark is geared directly to you. Let’s go:
The response to Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings has been fantastic, but I have one more small favor to ask. If you’ve received your copy, I would be forever grateful if you were to take a few minutes to write a quick (or long) review on Amazon and/or Barnes and Noble so that we can spread the word and progress the movement even further. Thank you!
Adding fish oil to the diets of bed-ridden patients improved their immune systems and streamlined the inflammatory/healing process enough to reduce the time it took for their bed sores to heal by 25%.
A personal arsenal of go-to Primal meals that can be cooked with little thought, time, or effort is an easy way to keep healthy eating on track. Dinner can be as basic as seasoning a steak with salt and pepper and sautéing veggies in butter. The next day that same leftover steak can show up in a bowl of greens with a little olive oil and lemon and voila! It’s a salad.
But here’s the catch – basic is a slippery slope that leads straight to boredom. Luckily, the solution is simple: Give your basic go-to meals a Primal makeover.
It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!
Hello there, Mark.
Let the storytelling begin…
At the age of 10, I decided to become a vegetarian. Despite my parent’s disapproval, I dove right in and after seven years went whole-hog vegan. Six years later, at the age of 23, I was diagnosed with an immune deficiency, had stopped menstruating, struggled with bloating and constipation, low energy, no libido, and anxiety. At 5’7″ and 135 pounds, I was by no means overweight, but I carried all of it in my belly and had very little muscular definition. The doctors I had seen (and there were many), told me the immune deficiency was incurable and they didn’t know the reason for my amenorrhea. I work as a stage actor, so the chronic infections and lack of vitality were seriously effecting my work and art. I soon gave up on Western Medicine, and started reading everything I could about “alternative healing”. I started seeing an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, and the first time I met with both of them the first thing they commented on was my diet. “Maybe you should eat meat” were the last words I wanted to hear, and I remember bursting into tears as soon as I heard them.
