Contest: Share a Primal Recipe Link

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: – Paleo Beef Curry

and – 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.


    Whole family loved this pot pie! We made it on Saturday with leftover chicken from chicken leg quarters that we roasted. Also used up leftover veggies we had in the fridge.

  3. Chef Tom Colicchio Braised Short Ribs.

    If you don’t do fremented grapes(wine) just nix it.

    If you are avoiding Canola use a different fat of choice.

  4. I was ecstatic to learn that pork rinds could be included in my paleo diet. What a delicious snack idea–and I’ve seen on some sites that say you can flavor them with different herbs and spices to change up the taste a bit. Oh, *joy*

  5. While lots of Chile Rellenos recipes can be paleo, this one looks amazing…

  6. I’m a fan of recipes that are primal without knowing it, especially this one:

    It makes primal a non-“sacrificial” and delicious endeavor.

  7. Spicy-Stuffed Peppers:

    A spicy ground turkey mix with cauliflower rice in place of regular rice. Also inside are sauteed onions, tomato and garlic. These stuffed peppers are versatile enough to be a hearty dinner for two, a kickin’ appetizer, or a buffet style entree. However you present them, they are sure to please and will have your friends begging for the recipe.

  8. Stuffed Peppers with Meat Sauce over Cauliflower Rice

    My own creation, but based on other primal recipes I’ve found online. A little bit time consuming to prepare, but so tasty it’s totally worth it!

    My blog is, and almost everything on it is Primal – this is my way of showing others how we eat (and let me tell you, we eat good)! Some of the recipes are based off MDA inspirations, but this one in particular is my own creation. I had coffee spiced lamb at a restaurant once and tried to recreate it primally at home!

    Also…the cupcake recipes are gluten free, do use unrefined sugar, and are as Primal as possible! Enjoy!

  16. Here is a recipe for a beef stew that I made this past weekend. I was surprised at how tasty it was since I am not really a stew fan.

    A wicked Kimchi recipe… Not sure if the sesame seeds are primal, but I didn’t actually use them anyways and it tasted AWESOME

    Simply sub Spagetti squash for a wonderful primal pasta- “Linguini” with shrimp and oven roasted tomatoes and garlic

  27. I know that this is too late, but I really wanted to share my duck gizzard recipe. I don’t think many people have used this ingredient before, so I want to show something that’s a bit unusual that everybody can try out for their first time. Enjoy! :)

  28. I love living primally. These new recipes all look good to me. I am always looking for ways to incorporate healthy food into new recipes.

  29. This web site is the model of value for time spent reading it, regardless of the message. I appreciate the effort it must take and I think other folks wishing to leverage the web for something actually useful could take a lesson from it. Thanks.

  33. Dave – zucchini sliced thin using a vegetable peeler for fettuccine or a knife for lasagna noodles or julienned, sliced cabbage works, spaghetti squash subs for spaghetti, cauliflower and broccoli stem can be sliced using a vegetable peeler as well for fettuccine, cauliflower grated is a great sub for rice – steamed cauliflower purée is an excellent sub for mashed potatoes. I am sure there are tons more, but it’s early, and I’m on my first cup of coffee so hopefully that’s enough to get you started.
