Escabèche – Fried and Marinated Mackerel

Escabèche is a Spanish method of preparing fish, first with a quick, hot sear then with a long, leisurely bath in olive oil, vinegar, herbs and spices. The vinegar finishes “cooking” the fish, producing moist, flaky flesh with a tangy, refreshing flavor. Spoon the fish and sauce over greens, and an instant salad is made. […]

Introducing Don’t Just Sit There!

Today’s an exciting day for me. One of those jump out of bed early in anticipation of what’s to come days. Today is the day I get to announce the launch of Primal Blueprint’s Don’t Just Sit There program, packaged and perfected with my friend and world-renowned biomechanist Katy Bowman. But before I gush over […]

How to Create a String of Success

It’s always interesting to be in this business and read the health headlines. So often, they seek to hook us with the promise of ultimate clarity: “Rehabing Health: Diet or Fitness First?” or “Should I Sleep or Exercise?” The underlying assumption is that there’s a conclusive rule to this – that we all conform to […]

Dear Mark: Anti-Paleo Guardian Column (Plus, Did Big Brains Need Carbs?)

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering one question. First up is the latest anti-paleo piece of clickbait, this time from the Guardian.

What Screen Time Does to Our Kids (and What We Can Do about It)

For many parents I know, it’s one of those prime examples of “what I thought I’d never do before I had kids” versus “what I ended up doing after I actually had them.” After all, most of us were children of those pre-tech boom years. (Some of us were even pre-T.V.) We never had all […]

7 Childhood Activities that Can Make You Healthier and Happier

Both my kids are grown now, but I still enjoy thinking back on the days when they were little. I can still see them covered in sand while digging on the beach, waiting enthusiastically for the next wave to knock them over, lost in whatever games their eager minds had come up with that day. […]

For starters, it applies to a massive variety of topics that we cover here at Mark’s Daily Apple. Whether it’s losing weight, gaining lean muscle mass, making more time for play, […]

Dear Mark: Low-Fat Versus Low-Carb Study and Plain Ol’ Olive Oil

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering two questions from readers. First, I field one of the dozens of emails I received concerning the latest low-carb versus low-fat study making the media rounds. The reports have ranged from declarations of low-carb dieting’s imminent death to more reasonable discussions of the actual paper.

Chicken Livers with Mushrooms and Herbs

Chicken livers are not, perhaps, the first thing your eyes are drawn to in the butcher’s case. Most people don’t salivate over a slippery mound of raw livers like they do over a thick steak. However, chicken livers are a primal food that you should be eating more of. They’re high in folate, zinc, vitamin […]

Is Conventional Wisdom About GMO Safety Correct?

Conventional wisdom demands skepticism. Whether it’s the official stance on high-fat diets (“they’ll give you heart disease, don’t work, or do work but not for long!”), exercise (“you must jog at a moderate pace for an hour a day, four days a week!”), organic food (“it’s nutritionally identical to conventionally-grown food!”), or sun exposure (“you must always […]

Why I Paddle Board (and Why You Should Try It)

If you’ve been keeping up with Mark’s Daily Apple, you know that standup paddling is a longtime favorite pastime of mine. And though I was into it before it was “cool,” I’m certainly not the first. Fishermen have been paddling their water vessels from a standing position for thousands of years and pre-contact Hawaiian surfers […]

Dear Mark: The Latest Forbes Organic Column, Low Sodium Senior Napping, and Weston A. Price

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering three questions from readers. First up, a Forbes columnist recently penned an anti-organic agriculture screed. In it, he makes the oft-repeated claim that organic is just a scam and really no different from conventional produce. Is he saying anything new — or useful? Should we avoid the often […]
