Contest: Make a Primal Blueprint Recipe Video

Tendergrass FarmsThe Prize:

$1000 Gift Certificate to Tendergrass Farms – As many of you know, Tendergrass Farms is a cooperative style online grass fed meat shop that exists for the purpose of economically sustaining small-scale American family farms that are raising meats in a pasture-centric manner without the use of artificial hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs and yet struggling to find customers who value their quality products. Tendergrass Farms accomplishes this vision by offering a convenient way for meat lovers to buy these farmers’ grass fed beef, pastured pork, pastured chicken, and pastured turkey whether they live in Detroit, New York, or a cave in southern California. The organization was born just a couple of years ago out of the need that their founding farmers saw for a bridge between the often geographically isolated family farmer and consumers all across the country who wanted to support them but didn’t have an easy way to do so. By implementing an ultra efficient dry ice shipping model they have created a unique way for the paleo community to buy meats of unparallelled quality directly from the farmers who need their support the most. If this sounds interesting to you, take a moment to watch their short 4-minute video about Sustaining Family Farms.

The winner of this contest will get a $1000 gift certificate that can be used at Tendergrass Farms. That’s a whole lot of meat.

BONUS: Tendergrass has kindly provided a discount coupon for all Mark’s Daily Apple readers. Simply use NICE2MEATU during checkout to receive 15% off your entire order. Good until 10/17/13.

Primal Blueprint LibraryA Primal Blueprint Library – You’ll also get every published book available from Primal Blueprint Publishing. That includes the 2009 bestseller The Primal Blueprint, all the Primal Blueprint cookbooks, The Primal Connection, the brand new Primal Cravings and Paleo Primer and more! Basically every book featured in the picture to the right. That’s over $250 worth of Primal titles.

The Contest:

Create and upload a Primal recipe video to YouTube. Have you mastered the omelet? Are you an organ meat fiend? Maybe your salad is so mean, it can win a chili cookoff. If so, let the world in on your secrets. Grab your camcorder, and show us how to make something Primal. There aren’t really restrictions on how you do it. 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.

For ideas on what you can do, check out these playlists for recipe videos from 2011 and 2012.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Oh it’s on. Like Donkey Kong.

  4. If the comments are any indication, looks like there might not be much competition for this. Or maybe that’s what people want others to think so they’re staying quiet about they’re plans. In any case, I may have to make my own vid. $1000 worht of meat from TF would be awesome!!!

  5. zOmg, I really wanna do this 😀 I’ve been thinking of sharing some of my recipes on the forums recently…
    I love creating new recipes day to day based on current supplies and what my body tells me, heh. Sometimes I go into this autopilot mode where I have no idea what I’m making until the end, and it’s always just what I wanted. My brother does the same thing 😮
