The Prize:

Organic, grass-fed, grass-finished beef jerky, dried mango, roasted and salted macadamia nuts, marcona almonds and dried cranberries, all conveniently vacuum-sealed into perfect serving sizes and delivered directly to your front door? Umm… yes please! And don’t forget Primal Pacs have no preservatives, grains or gluten, so they’re perfectly Primal.

The lucky winner of today’s contest gets 25 Large Primal Pacs. Retail value: $160.

Bonus: Use promo code “mda” for free shipping. Good for only two days.

And all you have to do for a chance to win is…

The Contest:

Have a topic, subject, or good idea for a blog post on MDA? Now’s your chance to suggest it. In the comments section below, leave a title for a future post on Mark’s Daily Apple.

That’s pretty much it. Tell me what you’d like to see covered on MDA with just the article title, and do it with as much creativity and cleverness as you can.

Each title submitted counts as one contest entry. Five entries per person are allowed.

Eligibility:

Any U.S. resident. Sorry worldwide readers. Most countries prohibit import of meat products.

The Contest End Time:

September 23, midnight, PDT.

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

I’ll pick a winner and will use submissions for future MDA article ideas.

To track all the contests visit the 2012 Primal Blueprint 21-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.

  5. I am curious to know whether there is an validity to Earthing. I sounds cool but very hokey yet I have become much more open minded these days. You have a great talent for distilling the truth of things to the extent humanly possible.

      lyndaland wrote on September 20th, 2012
      • FUD = Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. I didn’t know either and went to all-acronyms.com. There were 20 definitions. This one, in various formats, was listed 6 times, making it the most common, and it fits with the title listed here.

  15. Primal life in the military (especially while deployed). I am in the Marine Corps and currently deployed. I have been primal for almost a year. I find it difficult to do eat right while deployed. Our chow halls serve mostly good food but low quality and cooked in all the wrong things. I give up when we have to eat MRE’s because there is hardly anything good in those except tuna. The physical aspect of this life matches pretty close…its the food that is the problem.

    Bradley Driver wrote on September 20th, 2012
    • ^This- I’m sure there are plenty of paleo men/women deployed and at the mercy of what’s served, that would glean some quality info from a MD post.

      Brad’s out of the country but can’t we hook this guy up with some primal snacks while deployed?
