Contest Entries: 2013 Primal Blueprint Workout Videos

Here we go again: more reader-created videos! A couple weeks back I asked you to make a Primal Blueprint Workout video for a chance to win a prize package that includes an Ultimate Sandbag, a Praxis, a 30 foot 1.5″ manila undulation rope from Cal Ropes, two exercise mats from Square 36, three RadRollers, and a Platinum Package. And make workout videos you did. You sent in videos with zombies, the Flintstones, a talking tree, and more; even an ode to Breaking Bad, Primal-style. Many thanks to everyone that submitted a video for this contest.

Grokfeast in Ohio

On September 11th I asked Mark’s Daily apple readers to host a Grokfeast (a picnic/party celebrating the Primal lifestyle) and to send me the results. The following is one of 14 amazing submissions, the best of which will win an entire cow courtesy of US Wellness.

We are a young family of hunter-gatherers living in south-eastern Ohio. In preparation for our Grokfeast, we undertook our usual Saturday morning outing to the farmer’s markets, natural food store, and the local butcher. On our way to the feast, we stopped by the orchard that has been in my mom’s family for almost a century to get our “daily apples”.

Grokfeast in Indiana

On September 11th I asked Mark’s Daily apple readers to host a Grokfeast (a picnic/party celebrating the Primal lifestyle) and to send me the results. The following is one of 14 amazing submissions, the best of which will win an entire cow courtesy of US Wellness.

Let’s just admit it. The kids are good foragers. They hunt and gather things that the rest of us don’t see. Like seasoned professionals, they rummage their surroundings for anything interesting. Unfortunately, these items are often dangerous and never elusive. Also unfortunate is the fact that they often end up in their mouths. (Why is it difficult to get my kids to eat kale, but not dirt?)

Taking a cue from our children, we were inspired to take their enthusiasm for foraging and turn it into an educational experience on two fronts – in our bellies and in our trash cans.

The plan:

  • Clean the trash from our diets
  • Clean the trash from our neighborhood
  • Teach the kids the difference between trash and food
  • Get dirty
  • Eat well
  • Have fun

Grokfeast in Florida

On September 11th I asked Mark’s Daily apple readers to host a Grokfeast (a picnic/party celebrating the Primal lifestyle) and to send me the results. The following is one of 14 amazing submissions, the best of which will win an entire cow courtesy of US Wellness.

When my buddy Dani and I read about Grokfeast 2012 on Mark’s Daily Apple we thought: Primal food? Friends? Running around and playing like the 10 year olds we are? Sign us up!

So we rallied the troops. We are all at different points on the path towards health and wellness, but all are committed to eating clean, being fit and following the Primal Blueprint to the best of our abilities.
