Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
Energy bars can be nasty business. 95% of the energy bars on the market are simply candy bars re-branded for the cardio crowd. Heck, even Snickers has its own brand of energy bar which – big surprise – contains almost the exact same nutritional breakdown as a plain, old Snickers. What’s a Grok to do with so few Primal options for a quick pick-me-up?
Like almonds? Coconut? Blueberries? Whatever you want. I designed my own a few weeks ago; they were delightful. I’ve listed the recipe below:

Organic Clover Honey (Not Too Sweet)
Cinnamon, Organic Ginger, Organic Cacao Nibs
The winner of today’s contest will receive a free box of custom designed YouBars (or shakes or trailmix if you so choose). If you want my recipe, enter code “zidf0”, or you can design your own. And as a bonus for anyone who doesn’t win but still wants to build their own box of bars, for the rest of the month you can receive a 5% discount on any YouBar purchase by entering “Primal” in the coupon code section when ordering.
Put on your Oscar Wilde cap, because it’s time to serve up some wit. Today you need to comment about Primal living in as few words as possible. Funny, smart, insightful, whatever you say, make it count. It can encapsulate the whole of Primal living, or simply express a Primal idea.
Think of your best one-liner, post it in the comments section of today’s post: Primal Quotable Quips
NOTE: Leave your quip on today’s OTHER POST. Commenting on this post will get you nothing.
Win the YouBars and, if it’s good enough, I may even use it as the new MDA tagline. Happy quipping.
Today’s post has a bevy of quips, but here’s a few more irreverent quips the Worker Bees came up with:
They say grains are healthy. Kind of like they used to say Crisco was healthy. And cocaine.
Go Primal. Because diets aren’t worth dying for.
You wouldn’t fly in a rocket built by a chef, so why would you eat food built by scientists?
You ever see a bunch of kids going nuts at a playground? It’s like that.
Some people claim the Primal eating plan is elitist. They’re right.
I thought about trying Vegan, but cannibalism is outlawed.
Go Primal: It’s not a diet, it’s a frickin’ lifestyle.
When it comes to running, it’s not length that matters, but how hard it is.
Anyone can win. Except Martians. No Martian winners.

How the Winner Will Be Determined:
I’ll pick a few of my favorites and let you all decide the winner through a poll (like I did with the Grokkus).
