Contest: Title Twisters

The Prize:

Nut Butters. Forget peanut butter. Premier Organics makes the good stuff. Their Artisana line includes almond butter, walnut butter, pecan butter, macadamia nut butter, cashew butter, and the singularly wild coconut butter (warm it slightly and it becomes a gooey mouth-spooning indulgence). Winner will receive 10 on the go pouches (one of each variety), and three full jars; one each of almond, macadamia, and coconut butters.

Fermented Vegetable Juice. Yes, you heard right. Zukay, the folks who donated the delightfully tasty salad dressings last year are back with a new brew. Called Kvass (not to be mistaken with the weak and useless bread juice), these are sugarless, tangy juices derived from fermented beets, carrots, and other veggies. Winner will receive a six pack of Veggie Kvass drinks in his or her choice of  flavor.

The Contest:

Read all the rules before entering.

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

The Deadline:

Midnight, tonight!

Who is Eligible:

Because these are consumable/potable, only US residents can win them. In the case of an international winner, a substitute prize will be awarded.

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.

    • A fantastic article idea. There are 2 local-paleo minded individuals in this household and three that disappointingly have no desire to pursue that lifestyle. At least the Korgs (as outlined in the PB) try to do the right things.

  19. Loose skin. A lot of MDA readers are slimming down and losing 100 or more pounds and having drastic body composition changes. More information about what to expect and what to do about it, or if what we have isn’t loose skin at all would be nice.

    Cpt. Supermarket wrote on October 2nd, 2010
    • I’m going to be honest, I’m afraid of losing the 100lbs I need to because of this. An article would be helpful.

  38. The Best Medicine
    Losing weight and getting fit is great, but what about the other health issues it helps with? Diabetes has the spot light, but I’ve read a success story who had less noticable symptoms of Aspergers as a result of his primal lifestyle. This post can be dedicated to the numerous diseases that a Primal lifestyle can control or eliminate.

    • This could be a great series…MS, arthritis, ADHD, common cold…whatever. So many disorders/diseases can be (at least) helped with diet change…I’d love to read more!
