How to Overcome Inertia and Get Yourself Unstuck

The 17th Century physicist Isaac Newton observed in his famous laws of motion that objects at rest stay at rest and objects in motion stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. You’ve perhaps experienced this phenomenon as you chase your kids’ baseball while it rolls for a block and a half as […]

The Definitive Guide to Seeds

Last week, I gave yo the definitive guide to nuts, focusing on the ten most widely available types. Today I give the same treatment to edible seeds. If you’ve ever wondered whether chia seeds are good to eat, or sesame seeds can be legitimate snacks, or flaxseed actually isn’t as good (or bad) as you […]

How to Safely and Enjoyably Transition to a Barefoot-Dominant Lifestyle

The way we wear them, shoes are a real problem. They sever our physical connection to the earth, perturb our natural running and walking gait, and probably increase our risk of running injuries by increasing the forces acting on our joints when we land. That’s fairly basic stuff for readers of this blog, many of whom are […]

Dear Mark: Preventing Age-Related Muscle Loss, Sprouted Barley-Fed Meat, and a Pistachio Downside

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, we’ve got three questions and three answers. First up is a question from Casey, whose father is losing strength and muscle despite maintaining an active lifestyle. What can he do — dietarily and otherwise — to staunch and reverse the losses? Next, Australian cattle farmers are increasingly turning to […]

Weekend Link Love – Edition 340

I had a great time cooking, chatting about paleo tricks, and busting paleo myths on Camille’s Paleo Kitchen cooking show. Go check out the full episode, and wait for the paleogasm at the end. The 2015 Diabetes Summit kicks off tomorrow. Register today to get free access to my presentation and dozens of others over […]

Paleo Spinach & Artichoke Crab Dip

This a guest post from Kim and Amanda of PaleoSchmaleo. Kim and I were gifted with a glorious bottle of pre-made paleo approved (REAL FOOD) mayo from Primal Kitchen. I say glorious, and I don’t use that term lightly, mostly because of the word pre-made AND also the fact that it’s all clean ingredients! SCORE! […]

I Couldn’t Believe the Sudden Switch, Everything Suddenly Became So Easy!

It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep […]

Are We Thwarting Children’s Instinct to Explore?

Needless to say, the topic made for fun watercolor talk this week…. We somehow never tired of sharing our exploits from those years – many exploits our parents to this day don’t know about. (Maybe we never want to give up owning those secrets.) They involved most of us running outside the second breakfast was […]

The Definitive Guide to Nuts

Of all Primal-approved food categories, none is more bedeviling to even seasoned followers of the lifestyle than nuts. The questions never end. What is a nut? When you’ve got all these nut-like gymnosperms, drupes, and legumes masquerading as nuts, what even qualifies as an actual nut? Does it even matter? Or phytic acid. Is it or […]

The Autoimmune Protocol: What to Do When Nothing Else Has Worked

Today’s guest post is from my good friend Tara Grant, truly a superstar in the Primal/paleo/ancestral health movement. Tara started out as a success story: “Tons of Doctors and No Solution” – one of the most visited stories in our entire archive. She’s had a change of attitude since that article was published. As she […]

Dear Mark: Vegetables on a Budget, Low Ozone Sun Exposure, Eating Breakfast, and PrimalCon 2015

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, we’ve got four questions. First up is from Chris, who wonders whether vegetables are worth buying on a limited food budget. He’s finding it difficult to justify spending money on low-calorie vegetation when fatty meats, avocados, coconut oil, and other calorie-dense foods are available. Is he right? Next, how […]

Weekend Link Love – Edition 339

Chef Rachel Albert passed away last Saturday. We’ll all miss her dearly. The 2015 Diabetes Summit doesn’t kick off until March 23, but my presentation – The Primal Solution for Type 2 Diabetes – is already available. You can register here to watch it. The team at Thrive Market saw my Top 50 Essential Paleo […]

Sweet Potato Skins

Remember when potato skins were on the appetizer menu of almost every bar and casual restaurant? Looking back now through Primal eyes, there are so many things wrong with potato skins (starchy russet potatoes, loads of low quality grated cheese, Ranch dressing on the side) it seems wise to banish them forever. And yet, admit […]

Sometimes 1000 Words Are Better Than Pictures

It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep […]

How We Die: End of Life Planning

Last week’s post on the fear of death got quite a discussion going, and I appreciated the perspectives that folks shared on the subject. One interesting issue that people raised involved the circumstances of dying itself – specifically dying within a traditional medical setting where interventions and technology to prolong life abound. It reminds me […]

Top 50 Essential Paleo Pantry Foods

As a sort of mini-project around the house, Carrie and I have been going through everything we have and asking a simple question: do we need this item? The first section we tackled was the pantry because, believe it or not, it needed the most work. Whether it was the overwhelming number of free primal/paleo products […]

The Definitive Guide to Overcoming Procrastination

Several years ago, I briefly discussed a few methods for overcoming procrastination, but they didn’t take. The sea change I expected never came. People still procrastinated as much as they ever did, despite views for that particular post reaching the upper tens of thousands. Today, that changes. I’ve created a definitive guide to overcoming the […]

Dear Mark: French Press Coffee, Mid-Oleic Sunflower Oil, Peanuts, and a Keto Success Story

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering three questions and sharing a quick, but awesome story from a reader. First, are French press, Turkish, and other unfiltered boiled coffee preparations unhealthy due to the presence of coffee oils in the finished product? They may raise LDL, which gets the conventional health experts hot and […]

Weekend Link Love – Edition 338

Research of the Week Despite similar diets and identical genetics, identical twins who exercise regularly enjoy better glucose tolerance, lower body fat, superior endurance, and more gray matter than their inactive twins. After adjusting for confounding variables, statin usage increases the risk of diabetes by 46%. Show More Summary

Paleo Broccoli Salad

This a guest post from Natasha of The Feisty Kitchen. Broccoli Salad. I know this isn’t quite something you’d think of for the middle of January, but I got it stuck in my head, and had to make it. So there’s that. My version has a few twists in it but still reminds you of […]
