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. 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...

Contest Poll: Primal Post-Its

On August 10 I announced the Primal Post-Its contest. I imagined a few of the creative types would submit some Photoshop creations, and a handful of others would go out into the field to poke fun at CW. Instead I received nearly 500 submissions! Some of the entries are downright hilarious. Others do a great job of defining in a humorous way elements of the Primal lifestyle. While still others shed light on the pervasive misinformation we are plagued with in modern society.

Thanks to everyone for submitting your Primal Post-Its. Due to the sheer number of entries I haven’t managed to publish each and every one of them. Instead I’ve picked, what are in my opinion, the cream of the crop. It’s up to you to decide which of my top-10 favorites wins this contest. I’ve also included a long list of honorable mentions.

This poll only goes until 8 am (PST) tomorrow, so place your vote now! Click “Keep Reading” below to view the Primal Post-Its.

Aromatic Vegetables with Savory Flank Steak

Zucchini, eggplant, onions and bell peppers are in the summer spotlight at the farmers’ market. With so many of these vegetables available, we are always looking for new ways to use them.

The following recipe adapts the traditional ratatouille, and instead of tomatoes includes a delicious marinated flank steak. It’s a pleasant shift from the usual salad or plate of steamed broccoli to go with your dinnertime filet of salmon or other meat. The zucchini and eggplant comes out of the skillet slightly wilted but chunky, its flavors and herbs full of the marinade and juices from the beef.
