The Primal Blueprint

The-Primal-Blueprint-paleoGiven that Mark Sisson and The Primal Blueprint kick-started my journey into Paleo it seems only right that I point readers in the direction of some of the great products that The Primal Blueprint offers.

Firstly, there’s the Primal Essentials Kit which includes the three supplements Mark Sisson recommends to complement a Paleo lifestyle: probiotics, vitamin D and fish oil.

The Primal Blueprint Essentials Kit

Next is The Primal Blueprint Expert Certification course. Having become Paleo back in 2010 I recently began The Primal Blueprint Expert Certification course in a bid to deepen my Paleo knowledge and begin my journey into what I hope will be a life-long education in nutritional science and ancestral health. So far The Primal Blueprint Expert Certification hasn’t disappointed and I strongly recommend The Primal Blueprint Expert Certification to anyone working in the nutrition, fitness or ancestral health community. This certification will not only expand your knowledge but provide you with a strong seal of approval from the most famous Paleo resource in the world, Mark’s Daily Apple and The Primal Blueprint. Just click the link below. 


We recently interviewed Not Just Paleo podcast host and Onnit expert Evan Brand. He told us about his involvement with Onnit who provide a series of supplements, training equipment and even qualifications for those looking to become fitness trainers via the Onnit Academy Certification. I love Onnit’s line of fitness equipment, from wall balls to steel bells to kettlebells to battle ropes. Onnit’s fitness equipment will help you get into shape and ‘lift heavy things’ as per the Paleo prescription and their equipment is always of a high quality.
