My Top 10 Beauty Secrets

Image jumping.jpg

This is the number one most important beauty secret. (The rest are in no particular order.) Here it is: Beauty comes from within. It’s not about your size. It’s not about the shape of your face. It’s not about the color of your eyes, the length of your hair, or the clothes that you wear. Beauty comes from within. Have you ever met someone and with just one look at them you KNEW what a nice person they were? You can see it. You Read more

Basil Pesto Pasta

Image Paleo-Basil-Pesto-Pasta-Cappellos-Primal-Palate-23-800x534.jpg

Several years ago, my Aunt Justi told me about a tasty pasta sauce recipe that she made with a few items from Trader Joe’s. She told me to get the Trader Joe’s Bruschetta, Pesto, and a small container of goat cheese. Combine the appropriate amounts into a saucepan, and serve with rice pasta. I loved this recipe, and made it often. I forgot about this recipe for a long time, but lately I’ve been wanting to make it again. Read more

One More for the AGES: Dr Cordain Responds to Reader’s Questions about Advanced Glycated End Products

More than most sciences, the nutrition world is rife with debate and wildly different recommendations. Normally the debates center around our common knowledge of nutrition: macro- and micronutrients; glycemic index; caloric balance; etc. But sometimes it’s what we don’t know – or at least what few know – that’s important. One example is Advanced Glycated End Products or AGEs. Still new and not well understood within the nutrition world, Read more

Yellow (Spanish) Rice

Image img_26852.jpg

One of the more unexpected tasks that come with writing a cookbook is establishing a baseline for the reader. For example, presenting a simple (meat + rice) recipe isn’t as simple as throwing together (meat + rice), especially if you’re going to reference a similar rice preparation in other parts of the book. So a (meat + rice) recipe turns into two separate recipes – one for the meat, and another for the rice. Likewise, if Read more

Hello From Prague

Image steaktartare.png

We made it! There’s been far too much happening—some fun, some super annoying, some utterly confusing—for me to process it all in a way that will allow me to explain it clearly. After that first day on April 15 of jetlag, sleep deprivation, and glee mixed with extreme apprehension, the past 11 days have been a jumble of metro rides to IKEA, realizing I left my Kindle on the plane, being reunited with my Kindle at the Prague airport lost Read more

Beet Hummus

I dare you to resist the delicious charms of my Paleo, vegan, Whole30-friendly, bean-free beet hummus. In fact, I DOUBLE-DARE you.

I know—some of you hate beets. Maybe you grew up eating canned beets, and you’re haunted by the Read more

Natural Pain Relief During Labor: 7 Proven Techniques

Image Inline_Natural_Pain_Relief_Birth.jpg

Today’s guest post is offered up by a good friend of Mark’s Daily Apple—Genevieve Howland, aka Mama Natural. Very few people embrace pain. Sure, we’ve all said “no pain no gain” at the gym. But, as humans, we have a primal, hardwired instinct to seek pleasure and avoid pain. And that’s what makes childbirth such a loaded experience. Because, yes, there is usually pain (some like to say discomfort) involved in Read more

When I was 20 years old, I spent a couple of months in Sweden. I was visiting a friend that I met while living in Spain that year, and I took several weeks to travel around afterwards. I had such an amazing time in and around Stockholm, Västerås (where my friend lived), and Göteborg. It was summer, and I remember the long days, festive atmosphere, and beautiful places I visited. That’s why I’m so happy to announce that I’m finally returning to Read more

Marinated Artichoke Hearts. Couldn’t find any organic hearts, so…

Image tumblr_ol55ueSBgT1qe86euo1_500.jpg

Marinated Artichoke Hearts. Couldn’t find any organic hearts, so I chose one that was certified Non-GMO. Rinsed the water, sea salt and citric acid they came in, then marinated them in lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper, thyme, parsley, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder (all organic).
