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...Tell Me More
I always believe in my products. Not just in the “I believe that they’ll succeed” sense, but in the “I believe that these products serve a purpose and fulfill a need in people’s lives” sense. Frankly, that’s why I promote them, and why I’m able to do it with a clear conscience: because I know I’m making a difference (however small and localized it may be), or at least trying to make one. And so here we are, in the final hours of the Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings giveaway extravaganza. (I don’t think I’ve ever used that word – “extravaganza” – before in a serious way, so I’m trying it out for a change. What do you think?) If you’ve just been putting off the order for whatever reason, here’s your cue to go order a copy. If you haven’t yet been convinced, allow me to give you a few reasons why I think you should order the book. Give them an honest appraisal; that’s all I ask.
Okay, on to the top 10 reasons why you should order the new book:
You’re about to embark on a new health journey – Primal living – and that’s one of those big life changes, which tend to be overwhelming. To better assist you in the transition, why not stack the deck with every tool imaginable to help you overcome any future difficulties? Having a compendium of sauces, dressings, and toppings will ensure all these new foods you’re about to introduce into your diet stay new, stay fresh, and stay exciting for years to come. Hit the ground running, I always say. Bring a rocket-propelled grenade to a gun fight.
We just went over the looming spectre of the dreaded food fatigue yesterday, and there’s no simpler, easier, or more efficient way to waylay the beast than through the application of a velvety, viscous, mouth-coating Primal sauce to whatever food is currently fatiguing you. Just try making the spicy red pepper coconut sauce next time food fatigue is hanging around the kitchen. It’s hilarious to see it freak out. It starts out cocky enough. You smash a couple cloves of garlic, chop scallions, and seed a chile and it laughs in your face, but there’s a nervous sheen to the laughter. When you pull out the blender and turn the first set of ingredients into a frothy affront to its existence, the laughter stops. And then, once the coconut milk and lemon juice comes in, food fatigue runs shrieking from the kitchen. The book is full of sauces with a similar effect on the rascally little fiend.
I love doing what I do here, every day, on this blog. The books, the supplements, the other merchandise are all great products that I truly believe in, and they’re also there so that I can keep bringing you guys daily updates and musings. Without this outlet, I’d probably go crazy. The blog work is still writing, but it’s not the same as writing a cohesive book. It’s relaxing (sort of), quicker, easier, more enjoyable. Each post is self-contained without the need to flow into the next one. Writing the blog is almost like having a break from the “real” work. Problem is, I need to do the real work to make the blog pay off. More importantly, I need people to read and support the real work to make the blog run.
We’ve got a pretty good track record with recipes, if I do say so myself. The response to our cookbooks and our Saturday recipes has been hugely positive, and I’m confident you’ll like the sauces, dressings, and toppings just as much. Plus, Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings was designed with all previous PB cookbooks in mind. If an older recipe already has a sauce, you’ll be able to find several in the new book that work just as well with the dish – if not better.
As much as we relish taking control of our own health into our own hands (what a novel idea, eh?), it’s also important to give others the opportunity to do the same. And yeah, you could make the argument that the information is there for those who want it. I won’t argue with that. I’ll just say that the more copies we sell, the bigger we get and the more resources we have to continue to spread and expand the Primal movement. The bigger we get, the more this information gets “out there” so that the wider world can take a gander and, hopefully, do the same as we all have.
The classic SNL skit really doesn’t lie, does it? Although most of us aren’t lucky enough to have a quartet of mustachioed gents serving us juice and then repeatedly ensuring that we like it, we can make our own “juice” and then like it. And by juice I mean sauces, dressings, toppings, and any other concentrated edible liquids in general, which are just amazing and delicious. They provide the essence of whatever it derives from, whether it’s gyro meat with errant ‘stache hairs in it or the ingredients of your healthy dressing, in pourable form. If you like a da juice, buy the book and learn to make your own.
Everyone loves a good sauce, dressing, and topping, and yet all across the globe, refrigerator doors are lined with crusted over bottles of soybean oil ranch, bottles of “olive oil” that simply will not harden, and leftover takeout sauces that are more HFCS than anything else. People need your help. They need good sauces, and they need them quickly. Don’t let them make it into the new year without this book. With any luck, the giftee will get so excited about the book that they’ll leap up and start whipping up food, all the while calling you in to the kitchen to test all the sauces (might want to bring a spoon, just in case – what, you guys don’t carry pocket spoons?).
For round $18 (the approximate price of one book), you get a hundred bucks worth of bonuses:
Oh, yeah, and on top of that, you get a nice sauce recipe book, too. Learn how to get these bonuses here.
For about $54, you get all this:
Plus the books themselves. If you want to get your Christmas shopping done fast, this is the way to do it. Again, you can learn how to get all these bonuses here.
This is ultimately what it comes down to, isn’t it? There’s a good book full of helpful recipes for delicious, healthful sauces and dressings and toppings, an amazing deal that’s only available if you purchase said book(s), and a single day remaining to take advantage. In two days’ time, the book will still be there available for purchase, but none of the other stuff. If you think you might like the book somewhere down the line, why not just buy it today and get the extras? The book stands on its own, but we all like free stuff – don’t lie.
That’s what I’ve got, folks. If any of these reasons resonated with you, consider picking up a copy or three. I’d be forever grateful.
Thanks and Grok on!
