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.

  1. Mark, I am 10 days into the 21 day challenge, have the other 2 cookbooks and ordered two of these 1 for me 1 for a gift… I was checking out the Primal wristband… I have to say.. disappointed… LOL, not a big deal but I’m betting if you use a nice Primal material; Woven or knot based wristband you’ll sell a lot of them… so many different materials you can use and obviously coloring the natural fiber wouldn’t be a big deal.. just a thought… appreciate the site; and all the awesome information… I am typing this from my “new” standup workstation…

  2. Just bought my copy on Amazon. I miss ketchup sometimes and also need a quick, tasty dressing that doesn’t require many ingredients.

    Janet wrote on December 5th, 2012
  3. I am looking forward to this ebook!! Any idea when it will be available on Barnes and Noble? I just checked and it is still only available in hard copy on their site.

  4. Amazing book idea, Mark, thanks-I ordered. Primal is the only way I can lose weight and keep it off- Cursed metabolism!(and food sensitivities).
    Rock on.

  6. Tried to buy Kindle version but Amazon says it is “not currently available”??

    Really looking forward to it once Amazon have sorted it out.

    Owen wrote on December 5th, 2012
  7. I’m in Australia, and when I try to buy the Kindle version of the book from Amazon, it tells me:
    “Due to copyright restrictions, the Kindle title you’re trying to purchase is not available in your country”.
    I don’t want to buy the hardcover because shipping from Amazon to Australia is really expensive, and will probably cost more than the book itself! I also don’t have iTunes (nor do I want it) so I seem to be out of options for buying it. :(
    I realise the Amazon restrictions on countries for Kindle purchases is not your fault, but do you know if there’s any way to get it lifted? I’d really like to buy your new book!

    • Ditto for me in New Zealand. I really want to buy it, but the shipping would be more than the book itself!

  11. Sounds good….. when will you be coming out with a Primal Crock Pot (slow cooker) cookbook??? I know I can look them up on line… but I like to have a cookbook to refer to.
    Thank you.

  12. Mark,
    I bought 1 copy of the cookbook yesterday evening and filled out the form with a picture of the receipt, but have yet to get any emails about the freebies. Just wondering what went wrong?

    Beth wrote on December 6th, 2012
  13. Already purchased in New Zealand. Total cost inc shipping was $35.00 – still a great deal with all the bonus extras. Everything is more expensive here in NZ, especially food. Also can’t even get stuff you guys take for granted, like melatonin! (only from the doctor, at about US$75 for 14 days worth.) We just have to suck it up and accept it!

    • And I’ve just been advised that delivery will be the forth week of January …..

  14. Do I need a kindle for the ebook version? Is this available in a PDF format that I can just download?

    Anna wrote on December 6th, 2012
  15. I don’t know if this is addressed in the comments already, but is this cookbook friendly for those who can’t use dairy at all? Or, are a good chunk of the recipes dependent on dairy? Looks like an awesome idea for a cookbook!

    Casey wrote on December 6th, 2012
    • There are a few with dairy, yes. If that dairy called for is “butter” then we suggest using ghee instead, which has no dairy proteins or lactose (the major issues for those who do have issues).

  23. Hi,

    I just got my 3 books. I love this book. But, I never received the digital bonus. I was really looking forward to it and also the poster. Should I resubmit my reciept? Fine print said it should have arrived within 24 hours. Thanks :)

    Roberta wrote on December 8th, 2012
    • This happened to me too, I emailed someone about it and they replied by just giving me directions on how to submit my receipt. I had already done that of course, so when I tried to re-submit it came up with an error message of only being able to complete 1 form per person. I’m hoping it’s just taking a little longer than expected and that I will receive the bonuses soon!

      Beth wrote on December 8th, 2012
      • Me too. I ordered mine on Tuesday so it’s been more than a few days.

        Roberta wrote on December 8th, 2012
  24. Kindle edition is only available for the US, isn’t it? I hope it will be available in the UK soon…

  25. Yeah, I ordered mine and submitted the day of the posting, and I neither got an email confirmation or and word that I had received anything. Hope things work out soon.

  26. I just bought the book via Amazon and clicked the link to submit my receipt but I get an error saying only form per person. I understand this, but I didn’t submit the receipt before. I did, however, click the link…by just clicking the link am I entered? I wouldn’t think so but wanted to ask. Thanks!

  36. Hi,

    Purchased this book and what incredibly wonderful recipes! We plan on trying every one of them!!!

    I like the containers, especially the glass jar type with the lids, as seen in the pictures of the dressings. Where can these containers be purchased?

    Thank you!
