A New Primal Kitchen Restaurant Opens—And a Contest!

Image inline_pkr_mda_645x445.jpg

“Nine months ago Kyle and I walked into an empty building with dirt floors and wondered what that moment would feel like when this was all done! Yesterday we had that moment. It was crazy. We walked into our restaurant— done, designed and filled with our amazing staff ready to train! It was like time travel. It’s finally here!” These are Devyn Sisson’s words (yup, proud to say my daughter) just yesterday. She and my son, Read more

Bill Nye – The Science Guy?

As a fellow Cornellian, I’ve had a long-standing admiration for Bill Nye The Science Guy. Alright, I admit that I was a fan-boy. I was pretty excited when Nye returned to Cornell during my time there, to take a guest professor post. Here was a scientist who was charismatic, made science exciting for the masses, and had the “science chops” to teach at the Cornell science department. So, I was all too disappointed when I watched Bill Nye take on Read more

The Inaugural Primal Health Coach Masterclass: A Weekend to Remember

Image phc_masterclass_logo_navy_340.jpg

I’m a little nervous. For whatever reason, I always get the jitters before hosting people at my house. Usually it’s for a dinner party or birthday celebration or something similar and more intimate, with close friends. People who aren’t expecting anything out of you except good food and good conversation in other words. Today’s different. Today, I’m hosting a group of students and graduates of the Primal Health Read more

Announcing The Primal Kitchen Cookbook!

Image Inline_Primal_Kitchen_Cookbook.jpg

Two years ago in 2015, I founded Primal Kitchen® because I had a vision—a vision that extended the nutrition philosophy I’d honed with the help of this blog for (then) nearly decade. I wanted to make truly healthy—Primal—eating easier and more convenient. I wanted to create the kinds of products that I would use in my own kitchen—and offer them to others with the same health goals and the same love of amazing food. Since then, I’ve Read more

Dear Readers: A Giveaway for Your Thoughts…

I’ve got nutrition on the mind today. And I’m curious about your thoughts. Health trends and topics have evolved considerably since I first started this blog a decade ago. “Fringe” foods then are now thriving businesses. What was once nutrition heresy is today on the cover of mainstream publications. They’re far from standard, but Primal principles are getting more attention. Where do we go from here? And Read more

The Emerging Science of Electrostimulation

Image inline_electroceuticals.jpg

As a Primal lifer, I recognize that purity has a certain allure, just as I know it has its decided limitations. I frequently find myself wondering, “Would my paleolithic forebears have done/said/eaten that?” and choosing my course of action based on this line of educated assumption. It’s the WWGD lens on modern living. In a Primal-perfect world, that would be sufficient to ensure continued health and happiness. But things don’t always work out as Read more

Contest Poll: 2017 Primal Blueprint Recipe Videos

A couple weeks back I asked you to film and share your favorite Primal Blueprint recipes for a chance to win $1500 in gift certificates to U.S. Wellness Meats. This particular contest has always been a 21-Day Challenge staple, but this year, I upped the ante on Instagram with videos limited to just a minute each. The response was nothing short of amazing, as you guys came through with a batch of truly top-notch entries! It was tough, but the Read more

Contest Poll: Grokpose for $1,000

Image contestpoll.gif

Earlier in the challenge, I asked people to pose like Grok for a chance to win a pretty epic prize. The rules were simple, but the ingenuity and thought put into every submission were far from it. So after much posing, primping, and staging, here are our finalists! Picking a short list of favorites was challenging, so the Worker Bees and I threw our favorites into a pot and chose the first six. What do you think, folks? Who hits the most Read more

Dietary Trends: Are Popular Interests Inching toward Ancestral Wisdom?

Image Inline_Food_Trends_Ancestral_Wisdom.jpg

As the calendar draws toward the close of another year, I’m inclined to take stock of where the Primal vision stands. Are people slowly warming to the idea of Primal eating (and living), or are we merely seeing inconsequential, lateral shifts within the same old confines of conventional grain-based, saturated fat-averse, dietary “wisdom”? All right, all right. It’s fair to say that, without examining the numbers, the majority of people are Read more

2016 in Review: The Top 14 Developments in Ancestral Health

Image Inline_Year-in-Review-2016.jpg

2016 is just about over. I’m not a big party animal, as you probably know. Instead of bashes and balls, what I look forward to most of all at the end of a year is the quiet reflection on what impacted me most. Which science developments, business achievements, and thought evolutions characterized my 2016 more than the rest? Put another way, what were the most exciting developments of 2016 in the ancestral health world? Let’s take a Read more

Goodbye Everyday Paleo…

Image goodbye.png

This has been a very tough decision. Perhaps one of the toughest decisions of my life – seriously. Everyday Paleo has been an extension of myself for almost 8 years now and it’s grown up right along with me and has morphed into its very own animal that has become so much more than just – well – me! That’s a good thing. Growth is good, other voices are good, but sometimes dramatic change is even better. Last year I Read more

Is Your Brain Hardwired for Junk Food?

While the title of this article may at first seem implausible (and somewhat scary), a new scientific study seems to show that an inborn preference for junk food is not only possible – it may be affecting more of us than ever could have possibly been imagined. For the first time in history, researchers for […] The post Is Your Brain Hardwired for Junk Food? appeared first on The Paleo Diet™. SOURCE: The Paleo Diet™ - Read entire story here. Read more
