Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 64 years young. I live and work in Miami, Florida. 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.

What Is the Primal Blueprint?

What Is the Primal Blueprint?

The Primal Blueprint is a set of simple instructions (the blueprint) that allows you to control how your genes express themselves in order to build a strong, lean, healthy body with as little pain, suffering, and sacrifice as possible. The Primal Blueprint is also the first in a series of bestselling books I have written that all center around ancestral health principles.

With Halloween this week, we couldn’t let the occasion go by without sharing a Primal treat for good fun. While we’re not promoting the usual sugar spree, a little something can feel festive especially if you’re playing host.⠀
—⠀
These nut butter cups deliver on richness (and sweetness) and offer a more natural alternative to the packaged, preservative-filled candies most will get in their pumpkins that night—and they whip up in just 20 minutes. 🎃 Gather the little ghosts and ghouls to help you in the kitchen. 👻 This recipe is easy, fast, and family-friendly. ⠀
—⠀
Not doing the peanut butter thing? You can substitute almond butter for the peanut butter used in this recipe, and it will turn out just as delicious! (Recipe link in bio) #liveawesome #primaltreats⠀

If you’ve tried pancakes made from almond or coconut flour and find them slightly grainy, you’ll really love the silky, airy texture of these Almond Banana Pancakes. The flavor is sinfully close to banana bread; add a little vanilla and cinnamon to the batter if you really want to get decadent.⠀
—⠀
For those who are #keto or are restricting carbs for weight loss purposes, this recipe might not fit into your personal Primal plans. For others, it might be part of your 20%. And for others that are extra active or have already achieved your preferred body composition, this recipe might be a perfect fit. (Kids tend to love it, too, by the way.)⠀
—⠀
INGREDIENTS:⠀
• 2 ripe bananas⠀
• 1 egg (or 2 if pancakes aren’t holding together well)⠀
• 1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter⠀
—⠀
INSTRUCTIONS:⠀
• Mash the bananas, add the egg and mix well.⠀
• Stir in the almond butter, adding more than a tablespoon if you want a more pancake-like texture.⠀
• Warm butter in a pan and pour batter into small cakes.⠀
• Brown on each side and serve warm.⠀

It’s hard to believe that a chocolate cake made in a microwave without flour or sugar could taste any good—but this low-carb mug cake, we dare say, defies the odds. It works with the right balance of ingredients—one egg yolk, a little butter and cream, almond flour and dark chocolate. In less than a minute the ingredients bake into a perfect Primal-friendly treat. Check out our bio link for the recipe. #liveawesome #primaltreats⠀
