The Essence of PrimalCon: Celebrate Primal Life with Your Tribe in 2014

It’s hard to describe in words how amazing the PrimalCon Vacation Tulum was, which is why we brought out master cinematographer Janèe Meadows down there to capture the magic on video! I urge you to take 75 seconds out of your day and watch this highlights show. It captures the essence of what I’ve been […]

Dear Mark: Vegetable Powders, Pro/Prebiotic Timing, RS Questions, and Routine Eating

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, we’ve got four questions and four answers. First, I explain the merits and drawbacks of vegetable powders in the event of low produce availability. Next, I discuss whether there’s a perfect time to take your probiotics and prebiotics, or whether it doesn’t matter at all. After that, I answer […]

Weekend Link Love

Episode #14 of The Primal Blueprint Podcast is now live. It’s all about sleep: why it’s so important, how to get enough, how body composition depends on it, and much more. Research of the Week My good friend and the co-founder of the Ancestral Health Society, Aaron Blaisdell, has authored a paper suggesting that a high-carb, […]

Salt Roasted Lamb

There are so many recipes for roasts that simply say, “season the meat with salt” before cooking. But exactly how much salt? Too little, and the meat is bland. Too much, and you’ve ruined a huge chunk of meat. But more often than not, home cooks are left on their own to figure out how […]

Now a New and Greater Journey in My Life Can Begin

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 […]

Yes, We’re All Susceptible to Food Advertising

We in the Primal community often consider ourselves somewhat countercultural. (Okay, some of us maybe more than somewhat…) We eat what conventional wisdom says will kill us. We avoid or minimize our intake of whole food groups (mostly one really). In fact, we generally decline much of what the rest of society eats for its […]

Live Streaming: Join Me Online at Paleo f(x) April 11-13

One of the most fulfilling aspects of Primal living is the built-in community you become a part of as soon as you embrace a paleo lifestyle. From the online friendships inspired by the Mark’s Daily Apple Forum, to the face-to-face connections made at PrimalCon events, nothing excites me more than the webs of positive interpersonal […]

One True Paleo Diet Doesn’t Exist, but So What?

As a rule, people tend to eat whatever food they can physically access. Transcontinental shipping now allows us to access all sorts of foods – we can eat durian in California, jasmine rice in Alaska, Spam in Hawaii, and Russian caviar in Cape Town – but for most of (pre)history, humans ate only locally available […]

How to Conduct a Self Experiment: Resistant Starch

It’s been well over a year since we last did a self experimentation post, and I think it’s time for one on that current sensation: resistant starch. Whether you’re an ardent low-carber, a carnivore, or a safe starch fanatic with dried up rice stuck to your lapel, the allure of improved sleep, better glucose tolerance, […]

Dear Mark: Liver for Babies, Flax Seed, and MCTs with Fruit

For today’s Dear Mark, I’ve got a three-parter. First I discuss the suitability and proper dosage of grass fed beef liver for babies and toddlers. It’s definitely a good choice, but you do have to keep a few parameters in mind to do it right and do it safely. Next, I discuss flax seed. Is […]

Weekend Link Love

Next week, I’m speaking at Paleo f(x), along with other paleo/Primal luminaries like Robb Wolf, Chris Kresser, the Hartwigs, Nora Gedgaudas, and dozens more. I’ve got three talks scheduled – two on the 11th and one on the 12th – and you can buy separate tickets to each day, or a full three-day pass. If […]

Chicken Vindaloo

Chicken vindaloo is an Indian dish that can also be beef, lamb or pork vindaloo, depending what you’re in the mood for. It’s a dish known for being very spicy, but it doesn’t have to be if you make it at home. You can even skip the hot peppers entirely and still have an extremely […]

Sick of Counting Calories, Now Hooked on Primal

Will We Ever Accept that Exercise is Often the Best Medicine?

For years, experts have known that in mild to moderate cases of depression exercise is as effective (or more effective) a treatment as prescription drugs. Yet, here we are in 2014, with still climbing obesity rates and higher than ever numbers of people taking anti-depressants – a 400% jump in the last 20 years.  This […]

Resistant Starch: Your Questions Answered

Last week’s Definitive Guide to Resistant Starch garnered a lot of attention. While the article covered a lot of ground, many of you had lingering questions and concerns about the topic: What is and isn’t resistant starch? How much resistant starch should I be eating? Why is resistant starch good for me? What is resistant […]

11 Surprisingly Effective Exercises You Can Do Without Being “That Guy” in the Office

By now, the call for lots of low level activity has seeped into the mainstream. Every other week, it seems there’s an article in Slate or the Atlantic or your local news explaining how sitting is bad for us, or puttering around in the garden is good for you, or simply exercising a few times […]

Second, I explore some pushup alternatives for a guy with terrible thumb arthritis. Third, I explain the importance of chewing for jaw development, […]

As you well know, I’m a huge fan of bodyweight workouts, and the Bodyweight Bundle represents the cream of the crop. Just $37 gets you 38 books from the masters of the field. Episode #12 of […]

Slow-Cooked Chicken Adobo with Coconut Aminos

In this Primal version of Filipino chicken adobo adapted for a slow cooker, coconut aminos take the place of soy sauce. The result is a wheat-free, soy free meal that still has the authentic sweet, salty and slightly tart flavor that makes chicken adobo so good. While coconut aminos don’t taste exactly like soy sauce, […]
