Contest: The $5.99 Primal Value Meal

Posted By Mark Sisson On August 25, 2009 @ 8:21 am In Health Challenges | 49 Comments

The Prize:

A yoga mat! Yoga is more than just exercise, it’s also a great way to relieve stress [7]. And in the case of today’s prize, a great way to save the environment. Jade Yoga [8], today’s prize donor, is partnered with Trees for the Future to plant a tree for every mat they sell. Jade Yoga recently provided mats to the White House for children’s yoga on Easter Monday, and today they’re providing a professional natural rubber yoga mat [9] in any choice of color to the contest winner.

The Contest:

Fast food value meals are such a farce. They certainly aren’t talking about nutritional value. And as for economical value, you pay $5.99 for a burger, fries, and soda that you would have paid $6.09 for if you’d bought them individually. If saving a dime on 2500 calories of sugar and trans fat is your idea of value, then you’re probably not the type of person who wants to win a yoga mat.

So, what does a Primal value meal look like? You tell me. For today’s contest I want you to create a Primal “fast food” meal in which all the ingredients can be purchased for $5.99 or less. That is, the recipe needs to be inexpensive and easy to eat on-the-go. Leave your recipe as a comment on this post.


I’m looking for cheap recipes that satisfy this reader’s question [10]. I offered up a few options. Now see what you can come up with!


This prize is only available to residents of the 48 contiguous states. [If you don’t live in the U.S. and you win I’ll ship you a bottle of my Master Formula [11] instead, and the mat will go to an alternate winner.]

The Contest End Time:

Midnight, tonight (August 25th)!

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

Executive decision. I’ll pick a favorite. That’s the winner.
