Meet Mark

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...

Contest: Primal Blueprint Recipe Video

By Mark Sisson
32 Comments


The Prize:

If you’ve read my posts on beef jerky and dried fruit, you know that they are tasty and Primal, but tricky to make unless you have the right tools. Enter the food dehydrator. While some Primal folks actually use a car hood as a food dehydrator, I’m giving away this food dehydrator to make the process easier. Today’s prize donor is Excalibur. If you’re interested at all in food dehydration, take a look at their zappy video. And If you end up making a habit of drying your foods, these things will save you all the money you’d waste leaving your oven on for days at a time.

Food dehydrating is plenty of fun, but it’s twice as much fun if you’re dehydrating your foods while wearing Vibrams. That’s right, I’m giving away another pair of Vibram Fivefingers. If you win, you can hike in them, dehydrate food in them, or even get married in them. The winner will receive a choice of any of Vibram’s four designs of Fivefingers.

And because I can, I’m giving out a full line-up of Primal Nutrition products for this contest as well. The book, the shirt, the Vital Omegas, the Responsibly Slim, and the year’s worth of Damage Control Master Formula (12 canisters). If you’re planning on winning, you may want to clear some cabinet space.

To recap, the winner will receive:

The Contest:

Finished yesterday’s workout video already? Now get to the kitchen…

Create and upload a Primal recipe video to YouTube. Whether you film your meat carving or salad prepping skills the recipe and how you present it is up to you. I’ll leave it wide open. The only requirement is that your video relates in some way to the Primal Blueprint eating plan. Show the world (how to prepare) your best Primal dish and you could be the winner of the complete Primal package listed above.

Upload your video to YouTube and then email me the link. I’ll publish select videos on Mark’s Daily Apple at the end of the month.

The video needs to be an original video made for the purposes of this contest. Please title the video “Primal Blueprint Recipe:” followed by your own sub-title.

(If you are wondering about how long the video should be click here.)

Example:

This is a video I filmed a while back of my 2 minute salad.

Eligibility:

From the United States to the United Kingdom and from New Zealand to New Delhi everyone is eligible.

The Contest End Time:

August 26, midnight. You have 3 weeks to submit your YouTube link, so get out there and film a Primal Recipe video!

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

  • If only one person makes a submission that person wins by default.
  • If only a few people make submissions they will each be included in a poll where readers will pick the winner.
  • If we receive numerous entries I will choose my top picks, include them in a poll and let readers choose the winner.
  • I also reserve the right to make an executive decision at any time or use the random drawing method to choose a winner.

Wow! So many of my recipes (if not all) are Primal, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to make a video. On top of that, I have been saving up for an Excalibur dehydrator. This contest was designed for me!

Quick question – does the recipe have to be an original OR can it be one of yours?
