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...Tell Me More
Today’s guest recipe was written by George Bryant, author of The Paleo Kitchen and founder of Civilized Caveman.
I’m elated to share this recipe with you, but first let me introduce myself. I’m George Bryant, a.k.a. Civilized Caveman, and you can check me out at my home base, Civilized Caveman Cooking. My passion is helping people to achieve their goals and dreams and to live a life they love. I do this in our Hugs & Bacon Tribe, teaching people weight loss, fat loss, movement, mindset, and so much more.
But enough chit chat… Let’s talk about ranch dressing. Looking at this recipe, you might think it’s about the peppers or filling. It’s not! This recipe was created for one reason and one reason only: so I would have an excuse to eat more of this ranch dressing.
This is a big deal for me. In my lifetime pursuit of optimal health, I have gained and lost 100 pounds, overcome a 12-year battle with bulimia, and developed a healthy relationship with food. During the valley of my journey (the dark spot), ranch dressing was the one thing I heavily abused. Yes, you can abuse ranch dressing. It was so bad that up until 2 weeks ago I hadn’t consumed any ranch dressing in 9 years.
However, life is about living and not avoiding. Why I love Mark, consider him a friend and mentor, and support everything he does is because he is dedicated to the betterment of this planet. This ranch dressing gives people like me a safe, healthy alternative to enjoy their life. To focus on abundance, rather than avoidance. This makes thriving through food triggers and celiac disease a breeze.

So, this ranch—I mean, recipe—is simple. It’s delicious. It’s easy to modify, and it’s overwhelmingly addictive. I chose to stuff it in jalapenos and sweet peppers, but you can use it anywhere. Add it to sweet potatoes, top a spicy salad or even make lettuce wraps. The only limits are the ones your brain creates. I can’t wait to see how you use this recipe.
