“Hey Mark,
You’re usually way out in front but my 13-year-old son actually beat you to it this time. He, like most his age, is an avid Youtube watcher and has recently gotten into watching the ways of searing the perfect steak.

He’s been hammering me to get a cast iron skillet. Lol.

Good morning, everybody. A Weekly Link Love it coming right up, but first I’ve got something to share….

I’ve always been in support of the greatest health with the least amount of pain, suffering and sacrifice. Living well—and eating well—should be as simple as possible. That was the reason behind the first Primal Kitchen® products I created: I wanted to make good Primal eating easier for everyday people with busy lives. It’s the same mission that moves me today in developing healthy sauces, condiments, dressings, bars and more. And today I’m thrilled to share the latest additions I’ve made to the Primal Kitchen collection—the Pasta Sauces. And, of course, I’m celebrating the occasion with a giveaway….

Over the last couple years I’ve had a number of readers write in or comment on the boards that they wanted pasta sauces—a Primal version of the family-friendly staple. And, well, I listened.

In fact, I created five delicious flavors in response: Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce, Roasted Garlic Marinara Sauce, No-Dairy Alfredo Sauce, No-Dairy Garlic Alfredo Sauce, and No-Dairy Vodka Sauce. Serve ’em up over spaghetti squash, zoodles, or a Primal-style chicken parmigiana. The options are endless for quick weekday meals or more indulgent recipes.

And to celebrate today, I’m giving away 10 Pasta Sauce Collections—all 5 flavors to 10 winners. One collection with go to a random commenter on this blog post.

For more chances to win, head on over to the Mark’s Daily Apple and Primal Blueprint Instagram accounts. Just 1) follow @marksdailyapple and @primalblueprint 2) tag a friend, and 3) comment on one of the sauce giveaway posts about which flavor you look forward to the trying the most. Giveaway will close 9/11/19. My team will email the blog winner and direct message Instagram winners.

Enjoy, everyone, and let me know which flavor is your favorite!

“Good work Mark – Why is TMAO linked to kidney and heart disease?
The TMAO that is soi linked is being made from trimethyl-lysine, TML.
TML is formed in the body when cells are trying to make carnitine,
If this doesn’t happen, the TML can be converted to TMAO.
TML seems to be a better predictor of heart disease as TMAO.
It looks to me that TMAO can be a sign of diseases that lead to carnitine insufficiency, rather than the other way round
