Contest: Leave a Comment. Win Some Beef.

What’s more Primal than a juicy, locally farmed, grass fed steak? How about four juicy, locally farmed, grass fed steaks! Mark’s 30-day health challenge starts today, and it’s time to win some prizes.

The first prize comes from Texas cattle rancher, Beau Bendigo. Beau made the switch to Primal back in June. He has dropped 20 lbs since he started, he loves Primal living, he recently convinced his nieces to go Primal, and now he’s showing his enthusiasm by donating some steaks to kick off the challenge. Beau’s cattle live on a 100% grass grazed diet, and Bendigo Ranch practices low stress handling. For more on the benefits of grass fed beef, check out my post on the subject.

Three lucky winners will receive a 4-pack of Beau’s steaks. If you don’t win, but still want to order some juicy, grass fed beef, email Beau or give him a call directly at 605-538-4455.

Weekend Link Love

weekend link loveScientists have figured out how to remove all the cocoa butter from chocolate and replace it with starch! Now your chocolate will never melt in your hand. Nor will it ever be chocolate. And I quote from the UK Times Online article, “It’s the food technologists’ holy grail.” (Thanks go out to reader Steve for the link.)

There are exercise gadgets and there is this thing. Warning, this product may not be suitable for work…or exercise, or anything else.

Want more evidence that you have the power to control your genes? Via The Independent, a Harvard study shows how yoga and meditation affect disease-fighting genes. (thanks, Mark)
