ScreenShot2012 09 18at13548PMA Kangaroo - Not a living, jumping, boxing, marsupial. This kangaroo is the solution for people who want to stand at work. Made by Ergo Desktop, the Kangaroo Pro is an adjustable height desk unit that sits atop your boring sit-down desk. There’s really nothing else on the market like it. These are handmade in Ohio and shipped entirely assembled. Ergo Desktop has various models and finishes to match your office and the size of your computer. Perfect for folks who work eight hours a day and don’t want to sit themselves into back problems later in life. These are also a good option if your workplace is permanently affixed with desks of the sitting variety. You know I’m a big proponent of standing at work. This is your chance to win a standing workstation. Retail value: $499.

Contest: Primal Post-Its

4 stack side 1The Prize:

PaleoTreats – Founded in 2009, PaleoTreats is the original paleo dessert company. They are dedicated to staying totally paleo (that means no grains, no gluten and no dairy), and to making sure their treats taste as good or better than their conventional equivalents. Their best seller is the Mustang Bar which is comprised of just 11 simple ingredients: almond butter, coconut oil, walnuts, honey, almonds, raisins, pumpkin seeds, almond flour, coconut, vanilla, salt. Be on the lookout for a new release called the Bandito Bar (due out in October), which they’re saying will be the closest thing to a chocolate peanut butter cup you’ll find in paleo. The winner of six of each of their treats. Retail value: $102.50.

BONUS: Use coupon code MDA10 at PaleoTreats to get 10% off your order through the end of the month.

Contest: Ask Me a Question. Win a Book.

paleo primer 3D webThe Prize:

The Paleo Primer is the latest publication from Primal Blueprint Publishing, and a wonderful new book from British health and fitness consultants Keris Marsden and Matt Whitmore (this book is an adaptation of their popular UK release called Fitter Food). When Keris and Matt first shared their work with me, I knew immediately it was something special. These folks, who run a popular fitness and wellness center called Fitter London, have produced a book that is half “primer” and half incredibly creative recipes. The primer section distills the major concepts of primal/paleo/ancestral health living into clever and memorable short passages, spiced up by hilarious cartoon drawings.trans Learn more about the book and view an excerpt here.

Three lucky winners will receive a free copy of this book.
