The new theme: Primal Pork Recipes!

We’ve received some delicious Primal Snack recipes (the previous theme) from readers:

Fat Guacamole Devils

Sweet and Salty Primal Trail Mix

All of these recipes will be featured in the Reader-Created Primal Blueprint Cookbook and the entrants have a chance to win an über cool Primal prize package.

If you’d like to participate in this contest send in your own favorite Primal recipes that relate to the current theme – Primal Pork Recipes.

What are your favorite Primal pork recipes? Melt-in-your-mouth ribs? Roasts? Chops? Bacon!? What else? Click here for all the contest details.

Stay tuned for today’s regularly scheduled post when I’ll expose the Top 10 Real Life Reasons the Primal Blueprint Works for Me.

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.

  2. Bacon. It’s the only pork I eat. No recipes from me this time…

  3. Pork is one of my favourites & I missed it while I was a veg. I’m already trying to think of something for this challenge… at least the SO will enjoy the experiments!

  5. If I understood well, there is no definite deadline, the contest ends when enough recipes are collected, right ?

    • Lazar – Yes, that’s right. It will probably be many months before the contest officially ends. We’re doing one recipe post a week and have been doing this reader-created cookbook challenge for a few months now, so it might be toward the end of this year before it’s all ready to go. All submitters whose recipes are published on MDA will get a copy of the cookbook. Also, if you submit a recipe during a current theme but it isn’t used by the time a new theme roles around doesn’t mean it won’t be used. We’ll be picking select recipes throughout the year from all submitted recipes.

      Thanks to everyone for their submissions. It’s great to learn what all PBers out there are eating.

  6. gah! I still haven’t sent you my primal snack recipe or my primal breakfast recipe – is it too late to send them? I mean, I know it probably wouldn’t count for a drawing/prize but could I still send them in to you and see if you want to include them?

    I’m sorry… I feel like such a slacker.

  7. Mark:
    I’ve had back problems for six+ years and over the last couple I’ve fought off back surgery and don’t have too much pain. It’s been a combination of different workouts but one thing that helps is running, yes, running. If I can get in 5-8 a week there is no pain in the back! However, I’ve recently been dealing with Planter fasciitis. I’ve checked into a few prosthetics but haven’t seen anything I feel confident with. Do you have any recommendations?

  8. Mark: You posted a Watercress-Bacon Soup a few weeks ago. My wife has cooked it up a couple of times and it is seriously the best soup on the planet…oh my god delicious (we probably have some kind of stew or soup with dinner 3-4 times per week). Awesome.
