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.

Chicken Cutlets Are Not Out to Get You

It’s just your kitchen they’re after.

Sara here. Calling all germophobes! Specifically, that sub-species of kitchen clean freaks with a special loathing for dealing with raw chicken.

As many of you know, I’m pretty much the world’s worst vegetarian. Better not ask me what I’m eating…this week…because I’m not even sure. But, I will say, carnivorous concerns aside, handling anything beyond fish severely interferes with my clean-counters-or-else philosophy.

Enter this cool kitchen gadget:

The Sensor Soap Pump from Simplehuman

Now, a lot of kitchen gadgets I’ve purchased have been cause for regret. There was the special avocado slicer. The garlic press degunker thingy. I’ve managed to cull my culinary compulsions down to a top-drawer assortment of knives worth more than my graduate degree and an indefatigable hand-held mixer. But I love, love, love this automatic pump! How many times have you cracked an egg all over your hands, gone to wash your digits, and gotten raw chick goo all over the soap pump? (Hey, that’s what it is.) A simple attempt at preventing germ cross-contamination turns into yet another squeamish edition of Wash the Soap Dispenser.

Whether collecting yoga mats or pondering the grand benefits of plastic caps, I don’t normally like to recommend purchasing products. I think humans are better off when they simplify. I’m a bit of a tree-hugger. And blogs that promote new products, especially the health and fitness blogs for women, glaze my eyes faster than a rerun of Family Guy. Oh, wait, first run. (One not-annoying example of such bloggery is the delightful and engaging FitSugar, a bigosphere blog I pretty much devour on a daily basis. Still, Miss Fit tends to promote a whole lot o’ shopping. Nothing wrong with that, but I like to save my cash for what I see as the more important things in life, like artisan goat cheese.)

Simplehuman Sensor Soap Pump: highly recommended. What kitchen gadget would you be lost without?

Looks good……..however I, in the name of simplicity would…
1]rub the egg on my face and call it a mask…
2]rub it through my hair and call it treatment…
3] let the dog lick my hands clean for his shiny coat…
….no, really….to save on batteries I just rinse my hands first or grab paper towel before I touch the pump or tap and then I wash…simple
