Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

52 Comments

It’s been nearly a year since the Primal Blueprint Reader-Created Cookbook Contest began. Hundreds of recipes were submitted by loyal Mark’s Daily Apple readers and the best of the best were published right here on MDA. These recipes have now been bundled into a convenient eBook for all newsletter subscribers. In it you’ll find soup, snack, breakfast, salad and numerous meat (chicken, beef, pork, seafood, organ meats) dishes organized and categorized for easy reading.

If you are already a newsletter subscribe do nothing. Today’s regular Wednesday newsletter will provide access to this free eBook.

If you aren’t a newsletter subscriber yet (what have you been waiting for!) subscribe now and you’ll get this free eBook, the free 92-page Primal Blueprint Fitness eBook and weekly tips, recipes and inspiration from the MDA newsletter.

Get the Free eBook Now by Subscribing to the Mark’s Daily Apple Newsletter

Last, let me announce the winner of the Reader-Created Cookbook Contest. All readers that had their recipes chosen to be published on MDA are featured in this eBook, received a Grok on! T-shirt and, of course, will receive a copy of this digital cookbook. But one lucky winner chosen at random will also receive a Primal gift package. And that lucky winner is… Richard Freund! Richard submitted the Grilled Beef Heart with Roasted Chili Peppers recipe.

Many thanks to everyone that participated in this contest.

I hope everyone enjoys this eBook and the recipes from fellow Groks. Here’s to Primal eating!

Stay tuned for today’s regularly scheduled post…

Super! Can’t wait! And just in time for the holidays!

Thanks for doing this Mark!

This is so awesome! I cannot wait to get all the great recipes that are on this blog all together in one spot. In fact, I am even more excited to suggest them to my weight loss clients!

RIGHTEOUS. I’ve been waiting for something like this for a while now – the recipes posted online were great, but I have to admit that it’s kind of a hassle to keep my laptop open on the kitchen counter while I cook… Don’t get me wrong, I love trees, but I think that the convenience of having this guy on my kitchen cookbook rack will merit the worthy sacrifice of a few of my erstwhile sylvan friends 🙂

Thanks, Mark, and word up to my culinarily inclined fellow readers for the recipes. Can’t wait to try ’em ALL!

Mark, thanks once again for making this available to everyone – I am sure others would have charged this.

Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger

Mark,
This is awesome! Very nice of you to do this. No wonder we love your site.

Thanks!

I think the price is too high. Can you do something about that?

Excellent. Downloaded and on my desktop. I think Google was getting tired of my hitting refresh on my gmail account every 30 seconds waiting for the newsletter to come in. I’ll need to hit the grocery store this weekend for sure now.

Thanks Mark

Wow! I did not expect this and couldn’t be happier, a cookbook with so many peoples signature recipes in it, this is a early Christmas present indeed! You should make this a tradition, the primal holiday tradition for healthy inspiration ;D.

I just looked over this, it’s amazing.

Beautifully presented with detailed directions on everything.

The Fat Guacamole Devils and Sushi With A Twist is something I’m gonna try very soon.

Thanks!

Thanks for providing this, Mark. As an early purchaser of the PB Cook Book, while I was happy with the recipes in general, there were quite a few inconsistencies, missing bits of information, and odd design / layout oversights – which are the only real complaints I’ve seen people posting about on the books’ Amazon page. This new book, however, has a consistent, intuitive, and aesthetically pleasing layout, that absolutely cures all of the previously-mentioned issues. It’s good to know that you are listening to your customers. It’d be doubly nice if – assuming a future printing of the original… Read more »

This is awesome. Just what I needed – I felt I was starting to stagnate in the kitchen :p

YAY!!!!
In our household we have a running joke ala the movie “Little Miss Sunshine” where the grandpa expresses his dislike for having chicken every single night. In fact he words it as “effen chicken again”?? my older family members just call it FCA for short. I really hope this helps me out in the chicken department especially!

I make every meal from scratch so creativity and variety is key to appease all involved. I feel like it’s Christmas!
Sweet:)

TY and Cheers

Was also going to say cooking is my #1 passion outside of my family; so I can’t wait to print this =)

Awesome! Perfect timing, too.

Thanks Mark (and all those who contributed). The primal/paleo community never ceases to amaze me.
We spend our time actually helping and educating each other, rather than blast authors in the face with pepper laced pies and dump paint on unsuspecting models.

Jared

….

If you dump paint on someone wearing fur, aren’t they just going to replace it with another coat?

A bit counter-productive, no?

And why don’t PETAphiles dump paint on leather-clad biker gangs?

…sorry for rambling…

How much calcium is in 1 serving of the Primal Fuel Vanilla Creme? It doesn’t state calcium on the label but surely there is some?! I like to keep track of how much calcium I am getting in my diet each day.

You beauty! Thanks Mark. I have a nice little stash of Paleo recipes now. I’ll never get bored of selections.
Brilliant of you to share.. appreciated

OH MY GOSH

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Just what I needed.

I am going to re-subscribe at my home address so I can get cooking!
I am new to this lifestyle and loving it! Shifting how I cook is not always easy.

Also I am really loving the freedom and flexibility of getting off the “chronic cardio” plan. I was your typical case study!

Did I say Thank you yet?

I am also almost done reading Primal Blueprint. Handing it to my husband next.

A quality presentation of these great recipes. I especially liked the way the table of contents linked directly to the recipes. Thanks very much for putting this together and then giving it away!

For some reason, I didn’t receive this in my email account even though I get the newsletters weekly. Is there any other way to track cookbook down? Looking for advice or suggestions. Thanks.

I didn’t get one either, although I am a subscriber. (I checked my spam filter to make sure it wasn’t there).

I got the newsletter but it was only some PB “tips & tricks”. It didn’t have a link to the cookbook.

What was the title of the email containing the link? The last one I received was “Intermittent Fasting” on the 9th. I fear Aweber hates me! What do I need to do to get this awesome ebook?

Wow, that was amazingly bad timing on my part. Thanks so much Mark!

Thank you so much! Love the ebook!

Just wanted to let you know I found an error in a recipe. The dressing ingredients for the Lobster salad (http://www.marksdailyapple.com/lobster-grapefruit-and-avocado-salad-with-creamy-citrus-dressing/) are completely wrong. Looks more like roasted tomato salsa to me. Imagine my surprise trying to make this, had to improvise on the spot.

Thanks for this free gift Mark. And thanks for all the folks who gave us this recipes. This is a great community.
