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
Stews are perhaps the ultimate comfort and convenience food. Without a lot of prep, you can make a large (leftover-friendly) hearty meal that essentially cooks itself and keeps well. With an Instant Pot, it’s even easier.
The original version of this recipe contains chicken (which can definitely still be added here), but this vegetarian Instant Pot version is just as filling and flavorful.Read More
This recipe takes the ingredients from stuffed peppers (rice, ground meat, bell peppers) and turns them into a meal that’s easier and faster to make. (And if you made and saved part of the delicious bolognese from last week’s Bolognese Sauce With Spaghetti Squash recipe, you’re more than halfway done with dinner!
After tasting this flavorful one-pot meal you’ll probably never bother to stuff peppers again.Read More
Well, folks, I’d say this does it. When I asked the bees to come up with some Primal Thanksgiving fare, I caught the looks exchanged that suggested they saw it as a personal challenge. Now I only regret that I wasn’t there to personally sample and enjoy the results. (They didn’t save me any either.)
This week our very own Dr. Lindsay Taylor offered salient points on making a conscious T-Day plan whether you’re Primal or Primal-keto. Today the question may be answered you for you (and I’ll wager you’ll like the solution) with this full-on Primal (and mostly keto) menu. The bees have outdone themselves this time with a truly Grok-worthy Thanksgiving extravaganza. Check it out, and let us know which recipes are inspiring your holiday planning.Read More
Brussels sprouts often get a bad rap that has everything to do with poor cooking than inherent taste. The truth is, you don’t need to cook Brussels sprouts at all (but done well, they are amazing roasted, too), and this salad proves it.
Bacon is, not a surprise to anyone here, one of the best complements for Brussels sprouts—cooked or raw. Here the warm bacon added to the shredded leaves with tasty goodies like pecans and gorgonzola make this salad a hearty side. With the addition of a bacon vinaigrette dressing, you’re officially in Primal heaven.Read More
For many people, potatoes are synonymous with Thanksgiving dinner. And while the carb count of potatoes suggests moderation is best, at the holidays many Primal types choose to fit tradition into their eating plan.
Mashed potatoes might be the go-to, but another flavorful option is scalloped potatoes. It’s the perfect complement for beef and ham, of course, but with the taste of traditional herbs like sage and thyme, you might have a new favorite dish for your holiday turkey meals as well.
This recipe uses coconut cream and ghee, but you can substitute regular whipping cream and butter if you tolerate dairy.Read More
For many Primal types, the meat is the easy part of a meal. Roasted or grilled, the taste and richness are givens. After all, few of us tire of a good steak over time. The vegetables…are often another matter. Short of resorting to the overcooked sides we grew up with or anemic examples of restaurant offerings, we know we could do better. We should be eating more vegetables, with more variety, but how? Salads are perhaps the top option, but we’re not always in the mood for a cold bowl for dinner. Side salads can be the answer. We’re not talking ordinary iceberg though…Read More
