Contest: Name Your Meal, Win Fat

UPDATE: This contest is closed. Visit the 30 Day Challenge Contest Page to find out which contests are still open, and to view winners.

The Prize:

Fat is good. And it comes in many forms. Today you can win two delicious types, coconut oil and ghee.

What’s ghee? It’s rendered butter with the milk proteins and solids removed, and Pure Indian Foods makes the good stuff. They’ve been featured in the NY Times. Their ghee is organic, grass fed and today’s winner gets two 14oz jars of it plus a 6-jar sample pack of herbal and spiced varieties.

BONUS: If you use the code “marksdailyapple” when ordering from Pure Indian Foods online, you will receive a 5% discount.

But wait, the fat just keeps on coming. I”ve got five jars of Barlean’s Coconut Oil at my office right now. That’s 80 oz. or roughly two thirds of a gallon of coconut oil. I’ve got to mail this prize off as fast as possible, because I’m not sure my Worker Bees can hold out another week without cracking them open and frying up some almond pancakes. Winner gets them all (the jars of coconut oil, not the Worker Bees).

The Contest:

This one’s as easy as one, two, ghee (couldn’t resist). Enjoy eating? Tell me what your favorite Primal meal is in the comments section of this post. One commenter will be selected at random as the winner.

The Deadline:

September 13, 8:00 a.m. PST. 24 Hours.

Who is Eligible:

No restrictions.

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. Coconut and almond chicken fingers – so delicious and easy to make!

    • This one is easy… ground meat. It can be lamb, beef, sometimes turkey. I usually fry it up with lots of basil and oregano but spice combinations are endless: salt, pepper, turmeric, cinammon, kelp flakes, cilantro, cayenne… Mix it up with some avocado or spinach and voila! Easy to make, easy to vary!

      • homemade beef jerky

    • Zucchini Egg Bake, as mentioned in the Primal Blueprint Cookbook. The book is worth purchasing for this recipe alone… I eat it about once a week.

    Bryce wrote on September 12th, 2010
  8. Slow cooked beef heart in coconut cream with diced tomato, onions, capsicum, broccoli and colliflower. Seasoned with some ground pepper. The beauty is that being from Australia all my organ meat is grass fed by default (if anything is grain fed they’ll try to make it a selling point and double the price :p).

  29. I love to be able to have a good primal meal without cooking– our local favorite restaurant has an amazing steak served with herbed butter and a great salad including plenty of house-pickled vegetables. A great glass of Spanish red wine, and the primal life is sweet.
