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...

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.

Mark recently wrote about the importance of practicing gratitude and the recent fires in California have asserted a real life reason for all of us on why gratitude is so essential.
Gratitude asks us to resist the temptation to judge the height of our own fortune (or the depth of our misfortune) by comparison with others. It's self-referencing, which is the seat of its power. So many things become possible when we operate from that place and this holiday season, we're celebrating that message more than ever.
Visit our bio link to read @marksissonprimal's "12 Daily Habits for Primal Well-Being" for a list of practices that can be as equally healing and beneficial as the food you put into your body. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! 🦃 #liveawesome #listentothesisson
