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.

There are a ton of burgers out there in the paleo/gluten-free world. They’ve become a staple order at restaurants, where even if there aren’t many other options, you can always get a burger, no bun, on a salad. Or lettuce-wrapped, if you’re lucky.
This one is different. Prepare to have your tastebuds BLOWN (that’s a good thing) by this recipe—they won’t even know what to expect with the insane combination of your old favorites: a BLT, a burger, and sweet potato fries with ranch dressing, all made Primal-style, come together.
Here we have the rare Primal recipe that tells you to forgo homemade and instead use three store-bought condiments: Korean gochujang, kimchi, and PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Mayo. With this trio of ingredients, you can whip up a wildly flavorful shrimp appetizer. Plus, you’ll get some beneficial probiotic bacteria with every bite.
To make this addictive recipe, you’ll marinate shrimp in Korean gochujang, a fermented chili paste with a spicy and slightly sweet flavor. On the side, finely chopped kimchi is blended with Primal Mayo to make a full-flavored, pungent and creamy sauce for dipping. Quick, easy and delicious!
I’m Melissa Joulwan, but you can call me Mel. I have a killer recipe for you today. But first, I’ll tell you a little about myself. I’m the author of the paleo cookbooks Well Fed, Well Fed 2, and the soon-to-be-released Well Fed Weeknights: Complete Paleo Meals in 45 Minutes or Less (pre-order now!). I also write a blog called MelJoulwan.com (formerly The Clothes Make The Girl), where I write about my triumphs and failures in the kitchen, in the gym, and in life. I’m also a former rollergirl known as Melicious, but I’ve mostly stopped knocking people down for fun. Mostly.
Short ribs are often braised for hours, but when the weather outside is hot and you don’t want to turn on the oven, there’s a better way. Marinate those ribs, and throw ‘em on the grill.
PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Honey Mustard Vinaigrette serves double-duty here as a marinade for meat and a dressing for salads. The vinaigrette does all the work while you sit back and relax. There’s no chopping or stirring needed to put this 4-ingredient meal together, and your kitchen will stay so clean, it won’t even look like you’ve made dinner.
Grilled chicken tossed with crisp lettuce, cucumber, and red onion plus tangy cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts and olives makes an amazing Greek salad when everything is doused in PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Greek Vinaigrette.
It’s not only the zesty, herbal flavor that’s amazing. PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Greek Vinaigrette is also amazing because it’s packed with healthy and nutrient-boosting avocado oil and high-ORAC oil of oregano.
It’s shocking how many jars of bottled salad dressings are filled with ingredients that can cause weight gain, spiked blood sugar and high triglycerides. But not PRIMAL KITCHEN™ salad dressings. The Greek Vinaigrette is super-healthy and has a savory blend of Greek flavors (vinegar, oregano, coriander, marjoram, lemon) that can be used to both dress salad and marinate meat and seafood.
It’s easy to be intimidated by recipes for homemade Thai curry paste, what with the long list of sometimes hard-to-find ingredients and all. So this recipe keeps things as simple as possible, using a slightly modified list of ingredients that can be found in most grocery stores. Throw all the ingredients into a food processor, blend until smooth, and in a few minutes you’ve got yourself some homemade Thai green curry paste.
Bright, vibrant, and aromatic, homemade curry paste hits all the senses. Packed with flavor and made from superfoods like garlic, ginger and peppers, curry paste is a remarkable condiment.
