A Brand New Primal Blueprint Cookbook PLUS a Limited-Time $1 Million Bonus Giveaway

UPDATE: The promotion outlined in this article ended on Dec. 12, 2012. Many thanks to everyone that participated.

Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings is now available, and I’m giving you some incredible bonus packages when you buy one or more copies over the next week. But more on that in a moment. First, the real star of the show.

After the extraordinary success of The Primal Blueprint Cookbook and Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals, co-author and chef Jennifer Meier and I sat down to dream up the concept for the next cookbook. It didn’t take long because I had a personal itch to scratch.

We all have our go-to meals – meals that we eat day-in, day-out. Mine? An omelet for breakfast, a Big Ass Salad (BAS) for lunch, and grilled lamb chops and veggies for dinner. I almost never get tired of these meals. The key word in that sentence is almost. Variety is the spice of life, as they say, so the challenge was to find numerous ways to transform basic Primal meals into dishes that are not only better tasting, but better for you. And that’s exactly what we’ve done. A grilled steak is a grilled steak is a grilled steak. But a grilled steak smothered in our Coconut Cilantro Pesto, or topped with Bacon Chive Butter is out of this world!

Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings is all about turning ho-hum meals into Primal masterpieces with delicious and nutritious sauces, dressings, marinades, condiments, spice blends, gravies, and other toppings. It includes over 120 easy-to-prepare recipes inspired by traditional and contemporary cuisine from around the world. From the staples (ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce, hot sauce, mayonnaise) to the innovative (Blueberry Chutney, Arugula Watercress Pesto, Avocado Lime Dressing), every recipe will enhance the nutritional value of your meal, using only Primal-approved ingredients. That means no gluten, grains, legumes, added sugar, or unhealthy oils.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

      Mark Sisson wrote on December 5th, 2012
  6. “Special Event Bonus Offer” says both “limited to 3 orders” and “limited to 5 spots” – which is it?

    and, funny – partway down and I was thinking “this smells like Tim Ferriss!”

    Matt wrote on December 5th, 2012
    • I’ve changed the wording a bit to clarify the meaning. The Special Event Bonus Offer is limited to 3 spots.

  11. Don’t see it available on amazon.ca – does this mean we don’t qualify in Canada? Or just that we have to purchase through .com?

    Marilyn wrote on December 5th, 2012
    • It appears it is on Amazon.ca: http://www.amazon.ca/Primal-Blueprint-Healthy-Dressings-Toppings/dp/0984755152/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354726039&sr=8-1

      Keep in mind this fine print, “Shipped bonuses (i.e. all physical bonuses in the 3 or more bonus offer) are only available to those with shipping addresses in the United States.”

      To be clear, all bonuses in the 1 book offer and all digital bonuses (i.e. all things that can be sent by email and don’t require shipping) in the 3 book offer and beyond are available to all international participants.

      Mark Sisson wrote on December 5th, 2012
      • It is on the amazon.ca website but it does not ship yet. I’ve ordered it but they don’t seem to have any idea as to when it will ship. :(

  20. Does the ebook version have the same bonuses as 1 hard copy?

    Siobhan wrote on December 5th, 2012
  21. Great! More holiday gifts AND I get a spiffy apron :)

    Brenda wrote on December 5th, 2012
  22. Hello,
    I just bought a copy of your book hoping to get the The Friends and Family Bonus Offer but when I did the recipe fill out I got the The Primal Chef Bonus Offer instead. Was I suppose to order 2 books rather than 1 for the offer I wanted?

    Taylor Badonsky wrote on December 5th, 2012
    • The Primal Chef Bonus Offer is for 1-2 books and the Friends and Family offer is for 3-7 copies. If you want to order 2 more, I’ll be happy to make sure this is updated for you!

      Mark Sisson wrote on December 5th, 2012
      • I follow ya now. Thank you for the offer Mark but I really just wanted the poster and I used that $10 gift card to get it.
        Huge fan of everything you have posted on your site. It has changed my life for the better and thank you for that!

        Taylor Badonsky wrote on December 5th, 2012
  23. I am glad I purchased this book. But alas there are not bonuses for my digital version since it cost under $18.00. :(

    I’d pay the extra $6 for the bonuses!

    Tracy wrote on December 5th, 2012
    • That was my question. I would like the bonuses and would pay extra for them.

      Siobhan wrote on December 5th, 2012
      • The kindle version qualifies. $18 is just the average price of the book on amazon. If you pay less than $18 you still get the bonuses. It’s about the number of copies you purchase, not the actual purchase price.

        Mark Sisson wrote on December 5th, 2012
  24. Great idea! I cant wait to spice up my old recipes. Hopefully it will remove the complaint of “this again?” in our household ; D

    Thanks for all the bonuses, Mark! Best of luck with this book’s success – it looks like you’re on the right path!

    John wrote on December 5th, 2012
  25. the apron link is broken

    Matt wrote on December 5th, 2012
  26. If I want to get this as a gift for my girlfriend and gift the bonus offers as well, is there a way to have the offers sent straight to her by putting her email in the form? Or do I have to forward the bonuses to her email?

    Bill wrote on December 5th, 2012
  27. AHHH I’m so excited! just bought a bunch of copies (too include one for myself) for some great Christmas gifts and all the Bonuses for my Christmas gifts! I will be rockin the apron, hoodie, wristbands, reading… everything, and enjoying my jerky and supplements and coupons… Awwwright!
    The parents/relatives/friends getting them will be thankful (probably more than they know) for sure.
    Mark youda (cave)MAN!
    GROK ON!

    Andrew wrote on December 5th, 2012
  28. The offer says “Order one or more copies any format (physical or digital)” And then when you get to the Primal Chef Bonus offer it says “If you buy one book for $18.” I just purchased the new book and have all of the others on digital book. In ebook format none are over $18.00. Which is a good thing! But I am wondering if this is a mistake because it states that you can purchase a digital book.

    Thanks,

    Tracy

    Tracy wrote on December 5th, 2012
    • Sorry for the confusion, Digital versions do qualify. $18 is just the average price of the book on Amazon. The first slide of each slideshow has the footnote “$18/book is an approximate price. Actual price will vary.”

      Mark Sisson wrote on December 5th, 2012
  29. Just purchased on kindle and can’t wait to try the recipes. Beautiful pictures and simple instructions. I think coconut cilantro pesto will be my first…

  30. If I purchased it on iTunes for my iBook library, does that count? Thank you :)

    • All digital versions qualify. Just attach a screenshot of your receipt to the proper form.

      Mark Sisson wrote on December 5th, 2012
    • Hi
      I couldn’t seem to find it on iBooks and am having trouble buying an Ebook version from anywhere, including the Amazon link supplied. Any suggestions? I’m from Australia- perhaps there’s an access issue? Thank you :)

      AMc wrote on December 8th, 2012
  31. Will an iBook version be available soon? I previewed it on Kindle and it looks amazing!

      Miss Grok wrote on December 5th, 2012
      • Ah looks like its only available in the US store. Will it become available in the Cnd iTunes Store?

        Sorry for all the comments.

  32. Ordered! Can’t wait to get my copy. Thanks Mark!

    Paula wrote on December 5th, 2012
  33. Hi Mark, are these recipes also dairy free?

    Marisa wrote on December 5th, 2012
    • The vast majority are completely dairy free. About 10 recipes contain dairy, and those that contain dairy are noted as such with a milk carton icon next to the recipe name in the table of contents.

      Mark Sisson wrote on December 5th, 2012
      • Great thanks! I think I’ll be ordering one then! :)

  36. See? There really is a Santa!! This is where I’m at now. Using primal friendly ingredients to make meals. Most of the time food is just fuel – going Primal makes food almost unimportant for anything other than nourishment. BUT – every so often I need food to entertain or comfort me. AND – I miss ketchup and mayo and BBQ sauce!! Thank you for this
