I joke around a lot and give them hell, but I have love and respect for plant-based diets and the people who eat them. These folks come at health from an entirely different place, and, it’s true, I don’t think their diets are optimal. I think they get a lot wrong. They often misconstrue what Primal is all about. I’ve even received threats from some...

(Image credit: Maria Siriano) Do you love pasta carbonara, but get a little intimidated by the step that calls for thickening — not scrambling! — the pasta with eggs? Love risotto, but don’t want to spend all that time stirring at the stove? Here’s a much easier riff on both carbonara and risotto, made possible with the help of that teeny, tiny, rather magical orzo pasta. This is your 30-minute dinner tonight!

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering three questions. First, what’s the deal with the relationship between ketosis and methylglyoxal? Second, why did I recommend using the microwave to cook vegetables in the post from last week? Third, why do chefs use so much salt in their cooking? After all the questions, I throw in a couple more vegetable...

(Image credit: Faith Durand) While I wish I could say I am a master meal planner like some of my colleagues, that would be so far from the truth. The reality is I get lazy on weekends and roll into the week without a clear plan. There is, however, one thing I always try to squeeze in on Sundays: I roast a baking sheet or two full of vegetables. It sets me up for healthy eating, regardless of how prepared or not I am for the week ahead, and takes up hardly any of my precious leisurely weekend time. READ...

Research of the Week After applying testosterone gel, men make quicker decisions based on intuition rather than deliberation. Time slows down when you’re running hard. Kids are more engaged at school when they’re barefoot. I don’t think you can deny it any longer: Sitting is bad for you. So don’t just sit there, maybe? New Primal Blueprint...

When my family’s apartment flooded, we — my husband, 10-month-old daughter, geriatric rabbit, and I — decamped to my parents’ house. As we waited for insurance companies to settle the bill, we divvied up dinner duty: My mom and I took turns during the week and on weekends, my husband would cook, or my dad would get takeout. In some ways, it was easier. I cooked less frequently, if for more people, and that meant sometimes I could enjoy feeding little bub instead of trying to make dinner at the same time. Even...

Liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. A little bit is all you need to get a healthy dose of the vitamin A, copper, folate and zinc that liver offers. So, serving liver as an appetizer, instead of a main course, makes plenty of sense. If you never eat liver because you’re not entirely confident about how to cook it, try this: skewer it and...

I run a tight ship when it comes to my refrigerator. I can’t stand a messy fridge, so I spend a lot of time trying to prevent that. I find myself frequently pulling leftovers that have gotten pushed to the back of the fridge to the front so they won’t get forgotten about, and lining up various condiments. Beyond this, there is one tool I lean on daily to keep my fridge in the shape I like it: zip-top bags. READ MORE » Source: AgentEat ...

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 coming in. Thank you for reading! When I was...

Honey-Yogurt Avocado Toast (Image credit: Maria Siriano) Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Even when I’m crunched for time in the morning, I always make breakfast. Since sandwiches are so easy to put together, they’ve become my go-to for both lazy weekends and quick meals to eat on the way to work. I do love eggs, but sometimes there’s just no need for them; breakfast sandwiches can be just as delicious and satisfying without them. Here are...
