Contest: Share a Primal Recipe Link

Picture11 3The 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.

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.

  2. I loved the chicken livers my mom made when I was a kid. Of course, she made them in wheat flour and shortening! I modified her recipe the other night and they smelled and tasted just as good as I remember. Two bonuses: they were cheap, and my 6-year old liked them!

  8. So many comments already, it will be hard to find the good ones. For the “runners-up” I have a suggestion: make your own ghee.

    Here’s a ghee recipe that has worked well for me in the past: http://blog.asmartmouth.com/2008/10/10/homemade-indian-ghee-if-you-dare/

    Found this looking for a simple and quick recipe, for a piece of meat i had never cooked before. Took about 15 minutes total(including prep time). Mouth watering steak as the end product with a little BUTTER! Fantastic recipe.

  21. Here’s a recipe I can’t live without- I use lots of grape tomatoes cut in half,sausage meat, onions, mushrooms, peppers, lots of basil and oregano (fresh if possible). Added cheese is a nice option (if you roll that way), but not neccessary. YUM!!

  22. I loved COLD AVOCADO SOUP before I found Primal, but it was so rich I was afraid to eat it often. Now that I’ve seen the light, I happily indulge!

    http://paleobrothers.blogspot.com/2010/11/cold-avocado-soup.html

    This Primal version uses coconut milk, but I’ve always used grass-fed 1/2 and 1/2 or whipping cream. I also add a dash of lemon juice.

    Enjoy!

  28. Primalcotti! While definitely dairy-filled, the idea behind it is GENIUS. One of the very few things that made me sad about going primal was no more lasagna or manicotti, but not anymore!

    I love grilled tuna such that when sliced it is mostly raw with just a rim of cooked flesh and seasoning. I had previously stuck to a cracked peppercorn coating but recipe is a really good one.

  38. http://cleanpalate.wordpress.com/2011/09/14/amaranth-omelette/

    This recipe isn’t particularly aimed toward the primal audience, but I like it because it is a unique vegetable being used that people on a budget can easily afford as an alternative to organic spinach in terms of nutrition, without worrying about pesticides.
