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: Name Your Meal, Win Fat

By Mark Sisson
716 Comments

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.

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!

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).

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.
