Does 2015 Have Your Name on It? (plus 21-Day Challenge News and a Chance to Win)

“This is going to be my year!” It’s a common refrain as we change over the calendars every year. And I thoroughly believe each and every one of us should be thinking this exact thought today.

Happy Holidays

In the dim light of morning here, I’m thinking we’ll all wake up to varying ways of observing the day. Whether or not yours is a spiritual celebration today, there’s something to the collective tradition and cultural pause. We might gather with ones we love or send our greetings from afar. We might share our […]

Happy Holidays from Lil’ Grok and the Korgs!

It’s that time of year again, for feasting on savory meats and holiday fare ancestral style, and celebrating friendships and family with gift wrapped treasures of the contemporary kind. But why not bring something a bit more primitive to the holiday season…especially for the kiddos? I am stoked to announce a Primal Blueprint Publishing endeavor […]

The Quest for a Healthy Primal Mayonnaise (plus a Limited-Time Sweepstakes)

In a few short months, my team and I will be unveiling a new product that I’m confident you’ll be very interested in consuming. No, it’s not a book. It’s not an ebook, either, nor is it a new certification program or supplement. It’s something you eat – something you literally consume with your mouth. […]

G’Day, Australia – The Primal Hotbed

Something beautiful is happening across the Pacific Ocean. For years, I’ve sensed a strange Primal energy coming off the waves that pound the Malibu coastline, carried across the water from a distant nation whose people have embraced ancestral health and fitness more vociferously than any other. The citizens of this country read my blog, attend PrimalCons, […]

Join Us Next Month at the 5th Annual PrimalCon Oxnard

I love the late summer/early fall weather on the Southern California coast. The fog patterns of early summer have burned off for good, and while the inland valleys bake in the heat, the beach temperatures remain absolutely perfect. We enjoy sunny, temperate days and comfortably cool evenings. Why these ramblings about the weather? Because we […]

PUFA-rama: The Rise of Vegetable Oils

Death by Food Pyramid has received almost nothing but 5-star reviews since Primal Blueprint Publishing released it at the end of last year. It’s undoubtedly a hit within the community, and I think it’s an important read because it gives you, the consumer, the eater of food, the arbiter of what goes in your mouth, […]
