ScreenShot2013 09 27at92608AMSquatty Potty – You think Grok took a seat on a porcelain throne when nature called? Of course not! Toilets are modern inventions. Grok squatted, and so should you. Why? Well, squatting opens up the colon for fast and easy elimination, which is said to relieve constipation, straining issues, hemorrhoids, bloating and more. But what are we to do? Is it time for all-out bathroom renovations? No, there’s a simpler solution, and that’s where Squatty Potty comes to the rescue. Watch the video below to learn what a Squatty Potty is and win one today by participating in this contest!

The first 50 participants of this contest will get a free Squatty Ecco.

Contest: Be Featured in the Upcoming Book The Primal Teen

TPT MockBook320When you guys ask, I certainly try my very best to deliver. Within the Primal community there’s been a growing demand for information about the differences between being a Primal man and woman, like the effects of fasting, battling cellulite, and dealing with menopause. As many of you know, my wife Carrie began her research on the topic and we are eagerly bringing you Primal Woman mid-next year.

However, is there another group of individuals I’ve left out? What about teenagers? I’m sure you all remember growing up and dealing with new hormones, peer pressure, and the opposite sex. Heck, if you can’t remember that far back, you probably have some youngsters of your own going through these issues as we speak.

If listening to mom tell them what to eat isn’t sticking, and The Primal Blueprint is too big of an undertaking at their age, you’ll be as excited as I am about our latest addition to Primal Blueprint Publishing, The Primal Teen: A Health, Fitness, and Lifestyle Survival Guide for the Modern Girl currently being written by Leslie Klenke. (Don’t worry; she will deliver a Primal Teen for boys next, but ladies first!)

Midpoint Check-In: The Power of Community (Plus a Simple Comment Contest)

communityWith all the action around here, it’s amazing to me we’re already at the midpoint of the 21-Day Challenge! The flood of feedback, comments and contest participation has been awesome, and it’s all a reminder of how great a community this is. It never ceases to amaze me actually just how positive a group we have. Seriously, in all the blogosphere, I’ve never stumbled upon anything like it, and I have people tell me as much all the time. Sure, the growth and engagement that all the web number crunchers measure are stellar, but I’m talking deeper than that. I mean the genuine support that is shared here.

The Prize:

Have you noticed that the number of companies selling Primal-friendly products online has drastically increased in recent years? I take that to be a good thing. While a constant refrain on Mark’s Daily Apple is to eat local, eat fresh, and shop at farmers markets, and while I maintain that this is the most reliable way to get the best, most nutritious food, it’s not in the cards for everyone, nor are “local” options always enough. After all, what’s a person to do in the dead of a Minnesota winter for local grass-fed beef? How am I supposed to get local coconut oil, living in Los Angeles, when coconuts don’t grow here? Just because a food isn’t local doesn’t preclude its importance – or even necessity – in a Primal lifestyle, so thank goodness these online retailers exist. But I’ve found myself feeling a little overwhelmed with all the options. Who should I trust as my source of Primal foods that I can’t get locally? Who is the preferred online vendor of grass-fed beef jerky or organic coconut oil? I found myself wishing there was a reliable guide to online retailers selling Primal-friendly products. Since one didn’t exist, I took it upon myself to create it, and today I’m giving it away to all Mark’s Daily Apple newsletter subscribers for free.
