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 Results: Show Your Primal Dish

By Mark Sisson
46 Comments

A few weeks ago I asked you to share the best Primal recipe you’ve found on the internet outside of Mark’s Daily Apple. There were over 600 submissions!

A few days later I held a contest asking you to pick one of the recipes in that comment board, whip it together at home, snap a picture of it and email me the photo. Here are the results of that contest; 100 pics of Primal dishes from MDA readers around the world.

And the winner, by way of random drawing is…

Jennifer E.!

Jennifer made the butternut squash soup (from Balanced Bites (page 5 of the comments)) with “meffins”. Jennifer’s meffins were a combination of three recipe ideas, two of which were submitted in the “share a recipe” comment board: WAPF – Morning Nourishment (page 3 of the comments) and Bacon Wrapped Eggs (page 4 of the comments).

As Jennifer said in the email she sent me, “I don’t like ‘fried’ eggs, so I made the Zucchini Egg Bake recipe from PBCB and put that in the bacon-lined muffin pans.”

Congrats, Jennifer!

The contest is now over but I encourage everyone to use this comment board for recipe ideas. There are some real gems in there. Grok on!

Wow, so glad you liked my butternut squash soup recipe. I’ve got lots of EASY recipes as well as free useful guides to navigating paleo/primal life. Enjoy!

I could sit and watch that slideshow all day long…

Someone should create a cookbook with all those awesome recipes. I have yet to eat breakfast… I guess I should leave this page!

Oh, yum.. I just had a magnificent dinner consisting of lovely lamb racks and creamed cabbage, and finishing off with nutty primal carrot cake AND some 85 % percent chocolate. But STILL those pictures make me drool! I love primal food!

These recipes look wonderful. Is there a Place to see all the recipes in one place? I am new to Primal eating and Not too good of a cook. However, these look worth giving them a Try. Thanks for your help.

Awesome recipes, though I have pretty picky eaters. I have 4 boys under the age of five. Do you have any advice for primal eating for children?

Congrats to the winner. Mark, could you create a page on your blog that lists all these great recipes with their links? There are so many wonderful ones shown here lately…

Sharon

I’m with you. If the recipe list with their links could be organized into some grouping would be wonderful. Main dishes, desserts, etc.

Scrolling through the comment pages is grueling when one is trying to find something in particular.

Maybe there is a volunteer here that has the time and inclination to do this?

It would be GREAT to know which recipe each photo is – the photos are fantastic! Great job everyone!

I agree, it would be so much easier to look for recipes to make throughout the week instead of scowering the comment board!!

I am also watching this slideshow in the morning, and it truly is amazing. I love to cook primal/paleo and have Mark’s 1st cookbook, but let me tell you, I have not been able to make any of my meals look as beautiful, like a chef had prepared it! So inspired by others and their efforts to stay on this path and make it fun and attractive. Also I am looking forward to the new book “21 day transformation” I would like to get my husband on board!

This food looks Awesome, I truly love this lifestyle. With off hours spent fishing and hunting I enjoy knowing my catch will come home and nourish the family like it was meant to be!

The primal food inspires me to get outside and pick blueberries and mushroom by myself even though the winter is approaching, and it is getting darker and colder. The pictures look so lovely!

I win! I win! I win! Yay! Thank you Mark and Tropical Traditions!! Thank you to everyone who submitted links to recipes in that first contest. I only made it through the first 9 pages of comments (so far!) and bookmarked about 20 recipes.

During the week of this contest, I also made the CrockPot Pulled Pork with BBQ sauce on page 4 of the comments to the Post a Primal Recipe Link Contest. Yum!

Thanks!
