Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy.

Contest: Share a Primal Recipe Link

By Mark Sisson
609 Comments

The Prize:

What’s better than ghee? 100% organic ghee. And where do you find 100% organic ghee? Pure Indian Foods. According to PIF, they provide the only 100% organic ghee available in the market that has been made using the milk of pastured cows grazing on rapidly growing green grass in spring and fall only, when their milk is most nutritious. Pure Indian Foods will be sending one case (12 jars) of 7.8 oz. jars of Grassfed Organic Ghee (retail value over $130), and one Assorted Sampler Pack containing one 7.8 oz. jar of each of their six Herbal/Spice infused ghee flavors (retail value $89.95) to the lucky winner of this contest.

Check out Pure Indian Foods on Facebook and take advantage of this special offer: use discount code “ORGANIC-GHEE” when checking out and receive $5 off any order over $25. Valid until 9/30/2011.

The Contest:

Every Saturday I publish a Primal Blueprint recipe, but this Saturday is different. This Saturday I want you to point the Mark’s Daily Apple community to a delicious, must-try recipe you’ve found in the interwebs. In other words, include a link in the comment board below to a Primal meal you recommend. The link needs to be to another site, not MDA, and the recipe needs to be decidedly Primal; no vegetable oil fried wheat cakes topped with sugary sugar. Also, please include the name and/or a brief description of the dish.

Examples:

http://www.thecavegirldish.com/2011/08/no-worry-beef-curry.html – Paleo Beef Curry

and

http://www.primaltoad.com/kombucha/ – How to Make Kombucha from Scratch

Feel free to link to your own blog if you’re a Primal foodie blogger.

By the end of this contest the comment board will be a resource for the community, with (hopefully!) hundreds of links to Primal bloggers around the world that are dishing out healthy meal ideas.

Note: All comments with links have to be manually approved by a moderator before they are published in the comment board. Your patience is appreciated.

The Deadline:

September 19, 10:00 a.m. PST. You’ve got the weekend to find and publish your favorite Primal recipe link in the comment board.

Who is Eligible:

Anyone in the world that knows how to copy and paste a Primal recipe link to a comment board.

How a Winner is Chosen:

A random drawing will be held among all entrants. Check back on Monday to see all the submissions!

To track all the contests visit the 2011 Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge Contest Page for daily updates.

Ya beat me to it. I’ll have to come up with another recipe. This stuff is the bomb! I’ve made it many times & my husband will still eat it!(He’s picky sometimes)I’ve made it with macadamia nuts, pecans & coconut oil. The possibilities are endless. I’ve yet to try it with chocolate. It doesn’t need it.

A great recipe, with an Italian twist, for lovely fatty sardines!

You can even add something extra to the primal experience, by gutting the fish yourself (like I did, for the first time :-))

I don’t eat dairy so I don’t need to enter but I love this idea. I tried a new (simple) recipe this week that was absolutely amazing in a “why didn’t I think of that” way. Use cucumbers as a cracker substitute (hello, genious!) and try this spicy salmon spread. It is SO good. http://everydaypaleo.com/2011/09/08/introducing-paleo-comfort-foods-cookbook-by-julie-charles-mayfield/

It’s a breakfast pizza!! A few variations that I typically do are: grass-fed beef or bison in place of the sausage, coconut oil instead of olive oil, and in lieu of the spaghetti sauce I’ll use some homemade pico de gallo. I love this recipe because it is really easy to change and scale up and down depending on how many you are feeding.

I make these a lot for what Nom Nom Paleo calls “emergency protein”:
http://www.sweetcheekshq.com/2010/05/another-tasty-ball.html

Except I swap around the meats by using 1lb grass-fed ground beef and 1lb of Italian chicken sausage. I also sub green chile powder for the red pepper flakes (my hubby is from New Mexico – if it has green chile, he’ll eat it!). I cook them up and store in the fridge. They are tasty cold when I need a little something, or great heated and topped with marinara when I have time for an actual meal.

Can you believe it, I could not find ONE primal recipe for a proper caesar salad? So I had to write my own (by which I mean, Alton Brown’s without the croutons).

This is seriously the best recipe I’ve found since going Primal, Latest in Paleo’s Pho or Vietnamese Beef Soup. How can you go wrong slow cooking a chuck roast, short ribs, AND beef bones in one pot?

Thank you so much April! Tom Yung soup is one of my favourites! especially in winter when feeling a bit under the weather, it makes me feel better (the chicken stock perhaps?) I love adding a ton of cabbage to mine. I never had a recipe before & always made a packaged version – so I’ve gone without for several years now. Thank you I’m gonna make this alot this winter…

Here is an absolutely delicious recipe called: Brazilian Chicken with Coconut milk.

http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/brazilian-chicken-with-coconut-milk/Detail.aspx

A fantastic blend of South American spices and herbs mixed into a thick coconut milk based sauce and served over pan-seared chicken breast. Trust me, this is one of those recipes you will come back to many times! If you are really feeling primal, feel free to throw some quality grass-fed butter right into the sauce as well!

This is a recipe for a whole chicken cooked in coconut milk. It is really delicious. We often make it on sundays and eat the leftovers for lunch for the next few days. It suggests serving it on rice, but that is totally unnecessary.

http://www.janssushibar.com/?p=11683 These bacon wrapped chicken livers are amazing!! I found them through Chowstalker.com. I am a cook at a health food coop and I made these there to sell and I tell ya…they swayed even the “I-HATE-liver!-I will-never-eat-it” crowd. I literally saw some faces light up!! I am always looking for was to use the offal, because usually it gets thrown away (SHAMEFUL, I know) and I hate to see any animal food tossed. I have tried things in the past that I thought were great, (however, I like liver; I grew up eating offal) but NO GO for most… Read more »

There are so many good recipes out there it’s hard to pick. However, to me, this recipe tastes like Love and Happiness. Paleo Chicken Bastila — http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2011/08/02/paleo-chicken-bastila/
It does take a commitment of time, but it isn’t hard although the ingredient list is long and there are several steps to the process. Consider it a special occasion dish.

Keema & Sweet Potato Omelette

http://inthenightlife.wordpress.com/2010/08/08/keema-sweet-potato-omelette/

This is one of my favorite breakfasts, made of leftovers from one of my favorite, simple dinners. It’s an unusual omelette, sweet and Indian-spiced, packed with protein, fat -(including coconut!) and safe starch. Perfect for an active day!

I LOVE keema. I LOVE sweet potato. Never thought of putting them together in an omelet before. Sounds gorgeous! Of course… this means I need to make enough keema that we have leftovers. A rarity in our house!

Hey everybody, I am a french follower of MDA, and I’d say you’d be surprised to see how many traditional french recipes are actually primal, or very close to it. So my suggestions for today’s contest is a traditional recipe from my home region: not sure if a kidgoat is something easy to get on the other side of the atlantic, but I highly recommend it, especially if it she´s been fed 100% with her grassfed mumy’s milk. (my neighbor is a goatherd which helps). Here it goes: http://www.visit-poitou.com/article.php3?id_article=223 however this recipe says to serve with potatoes which is kind… Read more »

Margarita Pork Chops! I love this one! It was recently posted on a site I visit OFTEN, Purely Primal: Cooking with the Good Stuff. I like to sneak in primal meals when I cook for friends, just to show them how awesome the food is. My husband, father-in-law, and good buddy LOVED this one. But then again, they call pork “vitamin P”…so I’m pretty sure they would have liked anything with pork.
