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.

Last week I shared with you how I cook my steaks. Today I’m covering another grilled favorite—chicken. A lot of people hesitate to grill chicken, especially skinless chicken, and rightly so. Its leanness means that high heat has the propensity to dry it out…unless you know how to marinate well. My daughter, Devyn, came up with what’s become my favorite way to grill chicken. It’s simple and virtually effortless. See what I mean….Read More

Happy Monday, everybody. I’m welcoming you to my backyard today with one of my all-time Primal (and keto) favorites: grilled steak. It doesn’t get much better than a juicy New York strip hot off the grill. Throw in a generous side of broccolini and some steak sauce (I happen to know a good one), and that’s dinner for me.
Grilling a steak isn’t hard work, but a few things can make a big difference for the end result. Check out the video below to see how I do it.Read More
The first time I had cauliflower and mushrooms together, it was a beautiful moment. (Thank you to that incredible German cook.) It was also a game changer for how I saw cauliflower. There’s no error in calling these steaks here. When you pair cauliflower and mushrooms together, in this case a delicious adaptogen mushroom mix from friends at Four Sigmatic, what you have is a smoky-tasting, umami-rich feast. I could easily put away a few of these all by themselves, but what I love even more is the added kick that paprika and fresh chimichurri (one of my favorite sauces) give these steaks. I can’t think of a better vegetarian- and vegan-friendly dish—one that will bring even meat lovers to the table (and asking for more). Enjoy, everyone.Read More

Enjoy—and have a Happy (and Healthy) Memorial Day, everyone!Read More
