About Jennifer Meier
I'm a graduate of the California Culinary Institute in San Francisco with more than a decade of hands-on experience in the food industry. You name it, and I've done it. I've worked in the front and back of the house as a cook, server, restaurant manager, and even as a fromagère. I've been a wine buyer, a cheesemonger and the manager of a gourmet food shop.
These days, I work from my own kitchen developing recipes for cookbooks, websites and food start-up companies.
My writing and recipes are informed by my in-depth knowledge of the food and beverage industry and a passion for cooking, health, and wellness. Plus, I just really like to eat.

Enjoy one of the best-selling, primal/paleo cookbooks of all-time, with everything you need to transition to a primal eating style, or get more creative with your primal eating options. These recipes are free from refined sugars, grains, and vegetable oils, and emphasize the ancestral foods of meat, fish, fowl, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, and healthy modern foods such as high fat dairy and dark chocolate. Inside, you’ll learn about the basics of primal cooking and living, and how to source the best ingredients and kitchen items. Then, you’ll be off and running with creative recipes in the following categories: Meat, Offal, Fowl, Seafood, Vegetables, Eggs, Primal Substitutes, Marinades, Sauces and Dressings, Desserts, and Beverages.
Even if you’re an enthusiastic meat eater, you’ll break through to the next level by integrating creative preparations of Offal—nutrient-dense animal organ meats. If you think dessert is only about sugar, you’ll be amazed at the array of primal-approved savory treats you can prepare. With the Primal Substitutes section, you’ll realize that you can still enjoy your breads, crackers, muffins, pancakes, and rice, but will soon likely agree that the primal modifications taste even better.
This offering from Mark Sisson, New York Times bestselling author and publisher of the number one primal/paleo blog MarksDailyApple.com, and Jennifer Meier, culinary academy graduate, food writer, and photographer, contains over 100 recipes and 400 photos to help you dial in these fun and easy to understand recipes. Join the wildly popular primal/paleo movement, as millions are transforming their lives by ditching nutrient-deficient processed modern foods and eating the nutrient-dense foods that have nourished humans for 2.5 million years of evolution.
As you ditch refined sugars, grains and vegetable oils and start emphasizing primal foods, you’ll transition away from the disastrous state of carbohydrate dependency and chronically excessive insulin production that is agreed to be the number one public health problem in the developed world. Instead, you’ll become what Sisson calls a “fat burning beast.” This means you are able to burn fat as your primary fuel source instead of relying on regular high carbohydrate snacks and meals for energy. You’ll enjoy stable appetite, mood, energy levels and cognition all day long, and efficiently reduce excess body fat without struggling or suffering in the manner of a typical calorie-restrictive diet. By teaching your body to prefer fat for fuel, you can efficiently reach and maintain your ideal body composition for the rest of your life.
As you build momentum for Primal eating, you'll find that you won't even miss the bland, boring, low-fat foods that previously were the central focus of your diet. How can you argue with a menu that includes Roasted Leg of Lamb with Herbs and Garlic, Salmon Chowder with Coconut Milk, Tomatoes Stuffed with Ground Bison and Eggs, and Baked Chocolate Custard? The Primal Blueprint isn't a crash course diet. These recipes provide the foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating, high energy and protection from common health problems that arise from eating the high carbohydrate Standard American Diet. Browse through the Table of Contents and try these interesting and delicious recipes in the Primal Blueprint Cookbook!
Following the popularity of The Primal Blueprint Cookbook and Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals (both attained Amazon’s #1 ranking for low-carb cookbooks), best-selling author Mark Sisson and gourmet chef Jennifer Meier team up again to transform ordinary meals into culinary masterpieces with Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings. You’ll get acquainted with the essential list of Primal-approved ingredients: butter, coconut milk, flour alternatives, puréed vegetables, nut butters, eggs, healthful oils, vinegar, salt and assorted herbs and spices. Then, it’s off to the races to create your dips, rubs, dessert toppings, marinades, seasonings, salsa, pesto, flavored butter, tapenade, gravy and much more. The rich and satisfying flavor these sauces, dressings and toppings bring to your meals will not only boost nutritional and antioxidant values, but will also ban the objectionable sugars and fats found in most conventional flavor enhancers from the table! From staples like ketchup, mustard and hot sauce, to the more exotic creations like Blueberry Chutney, Carrot Salsa and Avocado Lime Dressing, each recipe enhances the nutritional value of your meal and uses only Primal ingredients. That means no gluten, grains, legumes, added sugars or unhealthy trans or polyunsaturated oils. And you don’t have to compromise great taste or spend hours slaving over complicated preparations. With options organized into convenient categories and presented with vibrant photos and simple instructions, going Primal just got easier—and a whole lot tastier!
