I’d usually make a point to talk about the “true meaning” of Christmas or whatever holiday you’re celebrating in the intro before launching into a huge commercial post about things you should buy this holiday season, but not this time. The following gifts are not pointless consumerist pap that your giftees will enjoy for a day or two until the newness wears off and they move on to the next thing to spend their money on. These are useful gifts. Gifts that enhance life, that further our relationships, that expand our culinary horizons, that compel us to go out and experience the world. There’s no shame in celebrating the holidays in this manner, because these are good gifts given out of love, fellowship, and friendship – all of which embody the true meaning of the season.
That said, let’s get to the gifts!
As the cold weather sets in across America, Canada and Europe, it seems like a great time to mention our fast approaching PrimalCon Vacation Tulum, at the 5-star Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa on the Mexican Riviera, March 1st-6th, 2014.
When I announced this warm, tropical vacation back in the heat of the summer, over 100 early enthusiasts jumped at the opportunity and booked their rooms at the resort! I’d love for you to join us in Mexico come March. It’s a perfect time to escape a cold winter and relax with Primal enthusiasts from across the globe and our team of expert presenters.
To give you even more comfort that you are certain to have an incredible time in Tulum, we have prepared video highlights for each presenter on the docket. Just visit the PrimalCon Vacation Tulum page to learn more about the education and enlightenment you will enjoy in Tulum.
I’m not usually a fan of Black Friday. I might click around online and snag an easy deal or two, but I won’t watch the clock to get “lightning deals,” I won’t wake up at the crack of dawn to buy a $5 laptop, and I won’t fight crowds to save $20 on a toaster (even if I did eat toast). Black Friday is better spent eating leftovers and hiking with the family. That said, I’m offering a great Black, nay, Grok Friday promo for loyal readers of MDA that won’t keep you from getting the most out of your day off.
Read on to see what it’s all about.
But first, let me tell you what it’s not.
It’s two days away from Thanksgiving here in the United States, and that means a significant portion of my readership is scrambling to put together a Primal menu. Things are easier now with the rise of the ancestral health community and the growing preponderance of related recipe blogs, but a lot of you are still wasting precious time combing through their volumes or converting standard Thanksgiving recipes into Primal-friendly recipes. You have better things to do. You have family and friends to visit, footballs to toss (or kick, as the case may be), piles of polychromatic leaves to roll around in, and thanks to give. Even if you’re an international reader, don’t celebrate Thanksgiving or know quite what it’s all about, you still like to eat great food.
Just a quick announcement before today’s regularly scheduled Primal Blueprint Real Life Story:
Many of you have been asking for these for quite a while, so I’m pleased to say they’re finally available. It’s a Grok Decal that you can stick on your car window or any other flat surface to tell the world you’re Primal. The decal comes with the slogan “Live Long. Drop Dead.,” which, if you’re a long time reader of Mark’s Daily Apple, you’ll know as a common refrain around here. As I say, it’s all about living a long, healthy, active and vibrant life all the way up to the very end. You can sport the decal with the slogan, or simply clip it off and have Grok go solo as shown in the photo below.
They’re only $4.95 and I’ll cover the cost of shipping and handling. You can get them here.
Or, for today only, order anything else on PrimalBlueprint.com (apparel, book, nutrition supplement, etc.) that’s $10 or more, and you’ll get one for free. (Fine Print: No coupon code necessary. The decal won’t show up in your shopping cart, but will be included with your shipment if your online order is placed on Nov. 22 PST. One free decal per customer. Any questions? Call 888-774-6259 (or 310-317-4414)) Enjoy!
