17 Easy Whole30® Recipes

A special thanks to Aimee McNew at Paleohacks.com for today’s Whole30® recipe roundup.

Trying a Whole30® can be a great way to refresh your diet or routine. If you’re already busy or overloaded with life, you might wonder how you have enough time to do even more prepping or cooking.

The Whole30 diet means doing 30 days (or longer) of a restricted version of Paleo. Any added sweeteners, even those that are Paleo, are not allowed, and neither are Paleo baked goods or alcohol. Foods like soy, dairy, grains, and other non-Paleo foods are definitely off the table. While it can feel restrictive, it’s only for a month—and it’s a great way to give yourself a dietary reset.

The Definitive Guide To Fish: Why and How To Eat It

In nutrition, there are very few universal consensuses. Conventional wisdom says that fat makes you fat and whole grains are essential, and millions of people agree, but the ancestral health and keto communities (and reality) disagree. Primal and keto folks don’t worry much about saturated fat and limit polyunsaturated fat; conventional health advocates do the opposite. The opinion on meat intake varies wildly, with some people suggesting we eat nothing but red meat, others recommending “palm-sized” pieces of strictly white meat, and still others cautioning against any meat at all. Pick a food and you can find a sizable group that hates it and a sizable one that loves it. You can find researchers who spend their lives making the case against it and researchers who spend their lives making the case for it.

But not fish. Fish is about as close to a universal as any food. Barring the vegans and vegetarians (some of whom, however, are sneaking wild salmon when their followers aren’t watching), everyone appreciates and extols the virtues of eating seafood. Including me.

Primal+Keto Cooking Made Easy: Mark’s Grilled Steak

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.

Mark’s Cold Brew Coffee

Welcome to summer, everyone. (I think most people agree it starts after Memorial Day, right?) One of the things I’ve always loved about summer is cold brew coffee.

That said, cold brew needs to be done right to achieve the smoothness and sweetness its known for. Here’s how I create my own cold brew.
