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
It’s been busy this year with the release of several new books, but there’s one that’s been under the radar that I think you’ll be especially excited about. Remember in 2013 when I published The Paleo Primer by Keris Marsden and Matt Whitmore? This delightful book introduced us to paleo/primal principles in the wittiest of ways, and then dished out creatively delicious primal recipes. Well with your help it went on to enjoy global success with copies published in the UK (Ebury Publishing) and Germany (Goldmann Verlag), and it’s ranked #1 in many categories on Amazon, including Paleo Diet, Low-Carb Cooking, and Exercise and Fitness. Thankfully, Keris and Matt weren’t done, and they’ve spent the last three years perfecting even more mouthwatering, primal-approved meals. And we’ve packaged them all together in The Paleo Primer: A Second Helping!
I can’t wait for you to try some of these recipes out, so I’m giving you a sneak peek of one of my favorites:
Easy Shrimp Red Thai Curry
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
1. Heat the coconut oil in a large pan, wok, or a casserole dish, and then add the ginger, garlic, scallions, paprika, chili, and cinnamon before stirring and cooking for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Add the pepper, red chili, tomato purée, lemongrass stalks, zest of lime, and shrimp, and stir well, coating the shrimp in the tomato purée and spices. Then cook for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Add the coconut cream, fish sauce, and salt and pepper and stir well. Simmer for about 3 minutes before adding the bean sprouts and simmering for another 2 minutes.
4. Serve with some white rice or cauliflower rice or just enjoy on its own as we did. We actually wilted some spinach into this at the end, so feel free to give it a try, too, for some added nutrients!
While you’re cooking, take advantage of the bonus items I’m throwing in for the book launch.
The Paleo Primer: A Second Helping retails for $11.74 on Amazon, so the $10 gift certificate almost covers the cost. With the $10 off coupon to PrimalBlueprint.com, you can grab some PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Avocado Oil to add some extra superfood flare to the recipes in the book.
If you’re stocked up on avocado oil, then consider buying a jar of PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Mayo as a must-have companion to the Primal Kitchen Mayo eCookbook, which is full of delicious side dishes to complement the main courses in The Paleo Primer: A Second Helping.
Hope you enjoy. And let me know what you think!
