Introducing the Primal Cooking Series!

As I mentioned in last week’s Success Story post, I’m unveiling something new today—a new cooking series I call “Primal + Keto Cooking Made Easy.” My co-author for the Keto Reset cookbooks and leader of the Keto Reset Facebook group, Dr. Lindsay Taylor and I are in the kitchen preparing a great set of Primal and keto recipes you can easily make for your own enjoyment. We’ve got everything from snacks to dinners on the docket, so join us each Monday morning.

(And for your success story fans out there, we’ll be back with more this July. In the meantime, check out our archives—and submit your own story for Mark’s Daily Apple here.)

Without further ado, let’s get right to it. Check out this introduction Lindsay and I put together for the cooking series, and keep reading to see our first Primal+keto snack video below. I’m excited to share this project today.

Today Lindsay and I are kicking things off in the series with one of *my* favorite Primal snacks (which also happens to be totally keto-friendly): deviled eggs.

Here’s an expert tip: make more than you think you’ll need. These tend to disappear—even if you’re the only Primal type in the house. And, yes, it doesn’t get much simpler than this crowd-pleasing classic, but it just goes to show how easy great keto eating can be. Enjoy, everybody!

Deviled Egg Recipe




Place your eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then cover, remove from the heat and set aside for 10 minutes.

Drain, cool in ice water and peel.

Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yolk to a small bowl with a spoon and place the egg whites on a plate.

Mash the yolks with a fork and add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir everything together.

Use a spoon to add a portion of the deviled egg mixture back into the hole of each egg white. Sprinkle on paprika for garnish.

Thanks for stopping in, everybody. Be sure to join us next Monday for more Primal +Keto Cooking Made Easy. Have an awesome week!

  1. Deviled eggs are great! For variations, try sprinkling chopped crisp bacon on top, or fresh chopped dill. Or try adding some curry powder to the yolks. Yum!

  2. I am so looking forward to these videos. Excellent idea but wouldn’t expect anything less from Sisson. Thank you for keeping things interesting!

  3. Though I am a pure vegetarian but my friends are not. This looks yummy and they are going to love it. Thank you so much!:)

  4. This looks great! Thanks for sharing! I would love more of these simple keto recipes.

  5. I’m glad that the primal kitchen condiments are doing so well, but many of your readers don’t have access to them. Will you include substitutions or links to recipes so that we can make our own if we choose to?

    1. Look up immersion blender mayo recipes. Super easy. Although, I have to say I can’t recommend using Primal Kitchen avocado oil for this, mine never sets up using PK oil. Instead, i use a different brand (I wish PK would work for me but it doesn’t – I’ve wasted many cups of expensive oil trying to make mayo from it).

      1. I use Mel Joulwan’s suggestion of light olive oil. Never fails.

  6. Delicious recipe and a great lunch to bring to work!
    Love the Primal Kitchen Classic Mayo!
