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.

Coconut Tamari Pork Chops

A quick marinade also makes a delicious, lip-smacking sauce for these juicy pan-seared pork chops. Tamari, lime juice, coconut aminos and coconut milk blend into a sweet/salty marinade that’s simply amazing with pork. Simmer the same marinade into a sauce, and you’ll be licking your plate clean.

If you can, use bone-in pork chops every time. They’re so much juicier and less likely to turn into flavorless rubber. Although if anything could give more flavor to a boneless pork chop, this marinade and sauce combination is it.

Bacon & Cheddar Keto Muffins

It’s hard to decide which is more delicious, these savory bacon and cheddar keto muffins, or the original blueberry flavor. Both flavors are made from the same basic recipe with a simple gluten-free ingredient list that includes almond flour, butter, heavy cream and an egg.

The lightly sweetened blueberry version is a delicious morning treat, but this combination of bacon and sharp cheddar is equally hard to resist. Who doesn’t love bacon? These rich and flavorful muffins are perfect for busy mornings (keep a batch in the fridge or freeze, and warm one in the microwave) or for leisurely weekend brunches.

Instant Pot Pulled Pork Coconut Curry

This is succulent pulled pork with an Indian twist. The pork is swimming in a fragrant coconut sauce rich with spices like garam masala, turmeric, coriander, and cinnamon (plus, lots of onion, garlic, and ginger).

This recipe is made in two parts. First, cook the pork shoulder. Then, simmer the coconut curry sauce. Using one pot, the Instant Pot, for both steps keeps the cooking time and the dirty dishes to a minimum.

Sweet Potato Chili

This thick and hearty chili is slightly smoky and sweet, with a spice level that can be tailored to your taste. Borrowing a genius trick from our sweet potato pasta sauce recipe, thin strips of sweet potato are peeled into the chili. This is an easy way to add sweet potato to all sorts of dishes, as thin strips of sweet potato cook quickly and easily blend in with other ingredients.

With a simple list of ingredients and short simmering time, this chili is meant to be a convenient weeknight dinner. But do yourself a favor by cooking this recipe on the weekend, with plans to eat the chili for dinner later in the week. Chili is a meal that’s meant to be eaten as leftovers. It usually tastes better the second or third day, thickening up and becoming more flavorful.

Instant Pot Pork and Kale Salad

This salad is a riot of flavors. Shredded pork is tossed with cool, crunchy veggies (like kale, cabbage, cucumbers and mint) and dressed with tangy coconut-lime dressing. It’s a salad that is many things at once: rich, light, meaty, fresh, filling and healthy.

The pork is so easy to make—just throw pork shoulder in an Instant Pot and let it do its thing. It’s complete comfort food. You can make this pork shoulder again and again for different meals. But when you’re in the mood for a really flavorful salad, then toss the pork into this super-bold blend of raw veggies and bold, funky dressing. Lime juice, fish sauce, coconut milk and avocado oil whisk together in a dressing that’s like no other.
