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. 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...

For those who miss the crunchiness of morning cereal or otherwise crave a lot of texture, this recipe is for you.  A spiced grain-free granola makes for a delicious breakfast or an afternoon indulgence that is full of taste and relatively low in carbs. Great to have on hand as a ready-made snack or quick breakfast when guests and family members come to visit for the holidays. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s that time of year again. People are starting to think about the new year ahead, which always goes hand in hand with resolutions aimed at improving health and fitness. I have an idea: Why not make metabolic flexibility your goal for 2019?

I invite you to join me this January for my Keto Reset Kickoff, a FREE one-week introduction to the keto diet—done the Primal way. It's helped me achieve even more metabolic flexibility, increased vitality, and better performance. I've teamed up with The Keto Reset Diet Cookbook co-author Lindsay Taylor, PhD, to bring you the Keto Reset Kickoff. A 7-day series of emails starting on January 7, 2019, that will prepare you to do a Keto Reset with us on January 15, 2019. —
Plus, when you sign up for the Keto Reset Kickoff, you’ll get access to an incredible deal: Buy a Primal Kitchen Advanced Keto Kit, get access to the Keto Reset Mastery online course for FREE (a $147 value!). Click link in bio to sign up. 
Holidays and food go hand and hand. Lindsay Taylor, PhD, co-author of the Keto Reset Diet Cookbook, put together a holiday food guide to help guide you through the holidays without throwing your diet away. Learn how to make food choices you can feel good about and healthy decision making about whether to indulge or not (and how much). #liveawesome #grokon #ketoresetdiet

Cookie season is here! These no-bake peanut butter protein cookies are the perfect Primal cookie recipe to have on standby this holiday season. Four ingredients and fifteen minutes is all this one takes. (Full recipe in bio link) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• 1 cup unsalted, unsweetened peanut butter (256 grams)
• 1/3 cup date paste (96 grams)
• 1/2 cup Primal Fuel Whey Protein (or other whey powder or egg white protein)
• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
• Blend together the peanut butter, dates and protein powder to make a cookie-dough-like batter.
• Roll the dough into 12 balls. If the dough is too sticky to roll into balls, refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes first.
• Place the balls on a plate and press down with a fork twice to flatten and make a crisscross pattern.
• Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before eating. (Alternatively, if you prefer warm cookies, bake on a parchment lined sheet pan for 10 minutes at 350 ºF/177 ºC.)
It’s about that time of year. Whatever your inclination or creed, whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukah or nothing at all, gift giving is a solid, time-honored way to establish and maintain bonds and friendship, show people you care, and make another person happy. Here are ideas for purchases I’ve made or received—and loved. 🎁

Big week. One of the biggest in my life. We just announced that Kraft Heinz will be acquiring Primal Kitchen through their Springboard platform in the first part of 2019. My partner Morgan Buehler and I are thrilled to be aligning with Kraft Heinz in a common mission to change the way the world eats. Primal Kitchen will continue to operate autonomously, the entire team will stay on (still based in Oxnard) and Morgan and I will continue to oversee the explosive growth of our brand. The products you have come to know and love will continue to be available (and now at more locations) and made using the same awesome ingredients, curated as always by yours truly. And I get to spend even more time on my favorite part of the business -developing new sauces and dressings. Massive thanks to all of you who have helped get us here. I assure you it only gets better from this point on.
