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: Grocery Time

By Mark Sisson
23 Comments

The Prize:

More fresh Alaskan salmon! Courtesy of Wild Pacific Salmon, the winner of today’s contest will receive 3 lbs of wild caught Copper River Chinook salmon fillets overnighted to your door. Salmon freaks out there know what a treat this is; and for any non-salmon freaks out there, prepare to be freaked, salmon style. Bonus: Use “AKSALMON” when ordering from wildpacificsalmon.com to receive a $10 discount on an order of 10 lbs or more.

The Contest:

One of last year’s contests was so neat, I decided to bring it back. Originally inspired by a NY Times photo montage featuring families from around the world surrounded by a week’s worth of their groceries, I told readers to surround themselves with a week’s worth of their Primal groceries. Check out the results from last year.

So round up the kids (or parents, or fiance, or roommates) and toss all the groceries on the table, because I want people to see “What Grok Eats.” The pictures don’t have to be fancy, nor do they have to be 100% Primal (or even 80%, just so long as people can see what you eat in a week). Mad props go to the most Primal family, but the winner will be selected in a random drawing, so don’t feel obliged to play “Keeping up with the Grokses.” Email me the picture along with the subject heading: “Grocery Submission”. As long as there are groceries on the table and smiling faces, you’re entered to win.

Examples:

Last Year’s Winner:

Now it’s your turn.

The Deadline:

September 29, midnight PST. A week and a half.

Who is Eligible:

Anyone can enter. In the case of an international winner, a substitute prize of equal value will be awarded.

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

A random drawing will be held among all entrants who submit adequate photos.

Agreed with Gilliebean! This looks awesome! My suggestion for a context from yesterday’s contest was actually a picture of the inside of a refrigerator, but this is pretty darn close!

Phew! Enough time to get our veggie basket from the co-op. If we took one today, you’d see how grok eats leftovers.

Looked at the NY Times photo montage. Funny how so called third world nations appear to eat so much better then we do.

We do the groceries on Saturday. I’ll be sure to have the camera at the ready.

I own the book the NYT was writing about! Truly a case of an image being worth a thousand words.

I usually shop twice a week (Sun and Wed) for our groceries from the Santa Monica farmers’ markets’, but I think I can try to put together a week’s worth of meals from our fridge before the deadline.

This will be tricky– I live in Germany and do a little shopping for our meals every day, since different vendors come to the open market on various days of the week… I can at least offer a sampler, I guess!

Mark, why do you do this to me? I was all excited and had my mouth watering over the salmon, and then I scrolled down and completely lost my appetite. Also, I want to go broil some salmon skin now (I save it when I clean my salmon — “bacon of the sea”).

That was fun and now I have some great outtakes of my kids! lmao
