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.

Strawberry Spinach and Basil Salad

We couldn’t think of a better salad to close out the summer season with than this.

Simple, fresh, and sweet, it’s a perfect accompaniment to an omelet breakfast or a grilled chicken dinner, but it’s also a satisfying light meal in its own right. With just 6 ingredients (including the dressing) and 10 minutes of prep time, you have a delicious salad (and nutrient powerhouse) on the table.

Keto Cole Slaw

Whether you’re planning a summer barbecue or an informal dinner, you can never go wrong with cole slaw. Creamy, tangy and crunchy, it’s always a crowd pleaser. But most cole slaw recipes use ingredients that contain sugar or other added sweeteners as well as mayo made with industrial seed oils. Not this recipe. Here you’ll find a healthier version all around and one that even fits the needs of a keto dieter—with all the fresh taste you’ve come to expect.

The goodness of Primal Kitchen® Mayo (made from healthy avocado oil) and Primal Kitchen Organic Spicy Brown Mustard mix with the bright colors and nutrients of cabbage, carrots and green onion—with a few extras to create a zesty and creamy side you’ll want to serve every week. (Personally, we think they go exceptionally well with these tempting Low-Carb Ribs….)

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.

Crisp and Fresh Crock Pot Veggies

Cooking large batches of vegetables makes it easier to eat veggies throughout the week. Pre-cooked veggies can be added to salads or served as a side dish, making both lunches and dinners easier to throw together.

Roasting large batches of vegetables on sheet pans is a great way to stock your fridge with ready-to-eat veggies. Another easy strategy is filling up the slow cooker and walking away for a couple hours.

Midweek Quick Cooking: Easy Sautéed Greens with Fish Sauce

This is a very simple recipe, with one secret ingredient: a little splash of fish sauce to add umami flavor to dark, leafy greens.

Sautéed greens are a quick and very healthy side dish for any meal. The most common set-up is olive oil, garlic and greens (which is delicious) but this recipe assumes that you want even more flavor, or perhaps a different type of flavor that will make greens more interesting (and less bitter).
