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
I’m getting a head start on my holiday shopping, and that includes gifts for my readers. So, I’ve got three “stocking stuffers” to help you get prepped and pumped for the holiday season. I’m including my latest eBook 6 Foods You Should Be Eating for a Healthy Gut, a free jar of healthy and delicious Primal Kitchen™ Mayo, and a heavily discounted digital copy of Paleo Primer, complete with over 100 must-eat paleo recipes. There are also over a dozen additional popular paleo books on sale today, and some really exciting news from Primal Kitchen.
Let’s jump right in!
First up is my latest eBook, 6 Foods You Should Be Eating for a Healthy Gut. This title is about—you guessed it—the specific foods to eat and avoid in order to obtain the healthiest gut possible. Gut health is paramount, as you well know. A healthy gut enables our digestion and immune response, our resistance to allergies and food sensitivities, and it even helps us maintain an even keel by regulating our mood. Without a healthy gut, we can’t truly be healthy, happy, productive or have the body we want. After reading this eBook, you’ll know exactly what to do (and what not to do) to get one.
You can get this 6 Foods Your Should Be Eating for a Health Gut for free here.
The second is a giveaway of Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayo sponsored by our friends at Thrive Market.
Thrive’s latest deal is for both new and existing customers. If you haven’t joined Thrive Market, do so today and you’ll get a 12-ounce jar of Primal Kitchen™ Mayo for FREE (just pay the $1.95 shipping fee). Existing members can also get a free jar when they make a purchase of $50 or more on Thrive.
The free bone broth offer that Thrive Market ran a couple weeks ago sold out in a matter of days, so click here to take advantage of this week’s deal, as I’m pretty sure Primal Kitchen™ Mayo may just go even quicker.
If you’re still on the fence, let me tempt your taste buds with some avocado oil health facts.
What is Primal Kitchen™ Mayo made of? Avocado oil—a heart-healthy oil that is about 70 percent monounsaturated fats. These “good fats” help the body regulate cholesterol levels, as well as increase the absorption of antioxidants and other nutrients. That’s why Primal Kitchen™ Mayo is the holy grail of condiments—every dollop of this mayo is so healthy you can use it lavishly to upgrade the flavor (and nutrition!) of your meal.
And then, of course, you’ll need some tasty recipes to use with your free jar of Primal Mayo, so, in partnership with PaleoDork.com, I’m discounting the Kindle version of Paleo Primer to just $2.99 on Tuesday, November 24 (today!). Paleo experts Keris Marsden and Matt Whitmore prime readers on the essentials of paleo eating, and then set us up in the kitchen with over 100 delicious paleo/primal recipes.
The guys over at PaleoDork.com have also organized 14 other popular paleo books to be heavily discounted today. Some of the biggest names in the paleo world are featured, including books by Chris Kresser, Melissa Joulwan, Cate Shanahan, Carrie Vitt, Paul Jaminet, Russ Crandall, Sarah Fragoso, Paleo Parents, Tammy Credicott, Jason Seib, Liz Wolfe, Kristen Michaelis, Bill & Hayley Staley, and Caitlin Weeks & Diane Sanfilippo are all going to be discounted to under $3 for today only.
To snag a digital copy of Paleo Primer and any of the rest, visit this page and follow the respective links. While there you can also subscribe to the Paleo Dork newsletter if you are so inclined. It’s a daily deals newsletter for paleo enthusiasts. As they say, “each weekday we send you savings on all things Paleo to help you live the hunter-gatherer lifestyle without losing your loin cloth.”
People love Primal Kitchen™ Mayo (that much is now a given). But after its mind-blowing success, my team and I are prepped to launch our highly anticipated (and what are sure to be awesomely palate-pleasing) new products to pantries across the country. Here’s a brief run-down of what’s coming soon.
Greek Vinaigrette: Love a classic vinaigrette? How about one made with pure avocado oil and oil of oregano (hailed as one of the most medicinally potent essential oils around). Not only does its taste blow most other vinaigrettes out of the water (no offense, canola oil vinaigrettes), it does so with a nutritional profile that even the most fastidious health-conscious shopper won’t help but swoon over.
Honey Mustard: A bright, rich, and warm fusion of avocado oil, all natural honey, ground mustard seeds and spices. This dressing packs a one-two punch: sweetness (with a rock bottom carb profile) and a slew of simple, organic ingredients that give it the cleanest seal of approval.
Ranch: Mission impossible, made possible. What if I told you that we’ve created a dairy-free, unbelievably delicious, and—get this—healthy ranch dressing? You’d probably say I was lying—or at least playing the part of a fisherman and stretching the story a bit. But I’m not. After going through countless test runs, we’ve created a creamy, full flavored, spectacularly delicious, dairy-free, and healthy fat-laden masterpiece. Are you a health-conscious ranch fan? Say hello to your new best friend.
Chipotle Lime Mayo: As if our traditional flavor wasn’t enough, you’ll soon be able to slather on a heavy serving of zesty, lime infused mayo into all your favorite recipes that need a kick. Or, you can use it as a standalone dip or spreadable aioli. Once you get your hands on this mayo, you’re not going to want to let it go.
Back to the Basics: We’re also launching our own label of the nutritional powerhouse that acts as a base to all our sauces: pure, centrifuge extracted avocado oil! So whether you want to whip up your own cold at-home recipes, or use it as a healthy high smoking point cooking oil, you can do it with a bottle of trusted Primal Kitchen™ avocado oil!
Last but Not Least (drum roll please)…
If that wasn’t enough, we have a new item hitting the shelves that, like our sauces and mayo, is going to be a game changer for a product category that has all too many times been overrun with average, over-hyped, and under-delivered products.
In December, we’re introducing the first nutritional bar of its kind. Now, before you roll your eyes at yet another “healthy” bar hitting the shelves, I think you’ll want to take a look at what’s inside our new Dark Chocolate Almond Bar.
I’m talking about only the finest ingredients. Heck, it didn’t even seem financially possible to source the ingredients for this bar and make it saleable, which is why I have been sitting on the idea for the better end of almost ten years. But we did it.
It’s packed with 15 grams of protein from all natural, grass-fed collagen sourced from Brazil, pumpkin seeds, dark cocoa, coconut oil and zero added sugar or artificial sweeteners. That all sounds great, right? But here’s the clincher that makes this bar revolutionary: the taste. By a sheer force of ingenuity, this bar (brace yourself) tastes like a gooey brownie you’ll want to pull apart with your teeth. Sold yet? You will be after your first bite.
All six of these delicious and healthy Primal-approved products will be rolled out in December and January. To ensure you get the memo when they become available, be sure to subscribe to the Mark’s Daily Apple, Primal Kitchen, and/or Primal Blueprint newsletters.
Happy holidays, everyone!
