Contest: Show Your Groceries

The Prize: The week began with grass fed beef, the week ends with fresh, wild caught Alaskan salmon. Salmon is a top notch source of Omega 3′s, and you may know how important it is to choose wild caught salmon over factory farmed salmon. If you’ve read my book, you may have noticed that I […]

No Better Time than the Present

Contest: Primal Blueprint Recipe Video

The Prize: If you’ve read my posts on beef jerky and dried fruit, you know that they are tasty and Primal, but tricky to make unless you have the right tools. Enter the food dehydrator.

Contest: Primal Blueprint Workout Video

The Prize: As far as workout equipment goes, the sandbag is uber-Primal. No need for weight machines, a well-built sandbag will give you a full body workout (I dare you to work just one muscle group with a sandbag, it’s impossible!). It’s the Grok equivalent of hauling a dead animal carcass, except without the funky […]

Weekend Link Love – Edition 61

Scientists 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 […]
