Contest Poll: Primal Blueprint Recipe Videos

At the beginning of the Primal Blueprint Health Challenge I put out a call for Primal Recipe videos. When I started this contest I had no idea what sort of response I’d get. It takes time, effort, equipment and forethought to put together a coherent video, but a number of MDA readers were up to the challenge. They opened up their homes to show us how they prepare their favorite Primal meals. A big thanks goes out to everyone that participated in this contest.

I’d love for everyone that submitted a video to be able to win the grand prize, but only one lucky contestant will get all of the prizes listed below:

Since polling MDA readers on all 17 videos (most of which were 5+ minutes long) doesn’t make sense the Worker Bees and I have picked our favorites to narrow down the field. Trust me. It was no easy task. Each video submitted had its own charm.

Now it is up to you, readers. Vote for your favorite Primal Blueprint Recipe Video, and do it quickly. This poll ends tomorrow morning, 9 am. Click here to view the videos.

Thanks again to everyone that has participated! (P.S. If you don’t win or you missed the deadline to send in your own Primal Blueprint Recipe Video don’t fret. Check in tomorrow for details on future contests.)

Patience… Persistence… Promise…

dedicatedBelieve it or not, we’re rounding the corner on our 30 Day Primal Challenge! It’s been an unbelievable few weeks of stories, support and success. (If you think we’ve motivated you along the way, just know you’ve done the same for us in our work. This is why we love what we do!) Tomorrow Mark will offer the official congrats and message for moving forward. Today, however, we thought we’d take a moment to reflect on the past month – your past month to be exact. Once you were here, on board, what got you through (e.g. a good friend, faith, fear, humor)? What did you find in yourself along the way? Are you looking forward yet? Every reader, as we saw in last week’s incredible posts, has a unique story, but we thought we’d tease out a few common threads. Let us know what you think.

Contest: You Might Be Primal If…

bfb9 homo sapiens caveman kitchen tThe Prize:

Brainy and brawny go well together. That’s why today’s sponsor is ThinkGeek, a one stop web shop for the smart masses. Today’s prize is the the Homo Sapiens Caveman Kitchen Tool. Or as I’m re-naming it, the Grok Tool. It pounds. It smashes. It even…grates garlic? Yep, all that and you now have the ability to mercifully end the life of your spear-wounded prey. And whether you win or lose, check out for fun stuff like killer bunny slippers, pice cubes, and previously featured miracle fruit.

The Contest:

If you were alive in the mid-1990′s, you may remember comedian Jeff Foxworthy’s empire of “You might be a redneck if…” humor. Today I’m looking for “You might be Primal if…” jokes. Think one up and leave it in the comment board.
