Contest: Name That Apron

Picture13 3The Prize:

Hunks of grass-fed meat, raw nuts and dried berries all conveniently packaged together: If your struggle during this first week of the 21-Day Challenge was finding healthy snacks or Primal meals while on-the-go, Steve’s got you covered. The lucky winner of today’s contest will receive a Steve’s Club Samplers Pack ($29.99), a Seasonal Sampler Pack ($28.99), and five Grass-Fed PaleoStix ($27.50).

Bonus #1: Use promo code paleomda for a 10% discount good through September 22nd.

Bonus #2: Your Purchase Changes Lives

In 2007, Steve was teaching CrossFit to a group of kids in the impoverished and crime-ridden city of Camden, NJ. He wanted to give them a healthier alternative to the school lunches and improve their nutrition.

Steve put together the first “PaleoKit” in his kitchen – a mix of jerky, nuts and berries, and began giving them out the kids. As a fundraiser for Steve’s Club athletes, he started selling these PaleoKits online. They quickly became a hit in the CrossFit community, and are now sold in Affiliates across the country.

Proceeds from PaleoKits and our other PaleoGoods continue to support the mission of training at-risk kids. Steve’s Club is now a National Program and partners with CrossFit Affiliates and trainers in cities nationwide to start similar Local Clubs in their communities.

The Contest:

In December, when Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings and Toppings is released, I will be offering a number of cool incentives to order one more copies for yourself and your friends. (It will be the perfect holiday gift!) One of those incentives, for those who buy 3 or more, is a Grok Apron (pictured). It’s been requested for ages, and it’s nearly here. The question is, what should the apron say? The Worker Bees and I have thrown around a few ideas, but I’m sure the creative bunch that you are can come up with something even better. This is the kind of thing we’re looking for:

“Praise the Lard!”

“No Grain. No Pain.”

“Kiss the Grok”

Be creative. Be witty. Be original. And keep it short and sweet. Come up with something you’d like to wear on a Primal/Grok apron, and if the Worker Bees and I select your slogan as the winner you’ll be receiving nearly $100 worth of grass-fed goodness.

Submit your one-liners in the comment board below and you’ll be entered to win. Each one-liner counts as a separate entry. Five entries per person are allowed.

The Deadline:

September 17, midnight, PDT.

Who is Eligible:

Any U.S. resident. Sorry worldwide readers. Most countries prohibit import of meat products.

How a Winner is Chosen:

The Worker Bees and I will choose a winner.

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. I know I’m not eligible for the prize, but how about “Live long, eat well”?
