Hawaiian Primal Fuel (PLUS a Contest!)

hawaiian-primal-fuelWith most of the country getting hit with severe winter weather, I thought a number of you might appreciate a little tropical break—even if it’s in your kitchen. This week’s recipe is from the new Primal Fuel Recipes booklet featuring over 20 delicious and energizing recipes made with Vanilla Coconut Creme and Chocolate Coconut Primal Fuel. Some of you may have already gotten your hands on one of these books when you signed up for the 21-Day Transformation Program.

The Primal Fuel Recipes booklet includes a wide variety of recommendations, including nutritionally packed shakes like Heart Healthy and Berry Green, sweet indulgences like Banana Bread and Creamsicle, and a Primal Fuel pancake recipe created by my own daughter, Devyn. But today I’m taking you to paradise with this delicious Hawaiian Primal Fuel smoothie.

How a Chance Encounter with Primal Advice Changed My Life

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!

real_life_stories_stories-1-2I’ll start this story at around where I started remembering things in my life as clear as day. I was four years old playing in my first basketball game at the local gym in suburban Dallas, Texas. My mom was a soccer player in high school and my dad was a cyclist, so they always encouraged and pushed me to challenge myself in physical endeavors. I enjoyed the sport and would go on to play soccer in elementary school and track and field in high school.

Contest Poll: 2015 Primal Blueprint Workout Videos

Contest PollIt’s time for you to decide another winner! At the start of this 21-Day Challenge I put out a call for Primal Blueprint Workout Videos. And you responded with 8 top-notch clips. Boiling the submissions down to the top videos for this poll was no easy task. My crew and I discussed at length what made up a good fitness video. Was it fun and entertaining? Was the workout something we can see ourselves doing? Did it inspire and keep us watching? How well did it represent Primal Blueprint Fitness? On and on. In the end we held a blind vote and ended up with four picks. To everyone that didn’t make the cut, many, many thanks for taking the time to put together an amazing contribution to this year’s 21-Day Challenge. Honorable mentions go out to each and every one of you!
