Contest: Title Twisters

artisan buttersThe 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.

ZukayKvassFermented 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.

  1. “Keeping Your Primal Pet” – there are several food vendors for pets that are coming on line that offer very primal diets for cats, dogs, and other animals that should ingest corn even less than we should.

    Just slip in the fat back, Jack.
    Put your barefeet on the land, stan.

  39. Too late for the contest, but could you do a post on body aches and pains?

    I’ve experience increased muscle aches on PB, even though I should be well past the low carb flu. I keep seeing others mention it on the forum with few good answers. I’d really like to find out about the cause and/or cure.

    Could it be something weird like carbs have a narcotic effect so pain is more noticeable when they are reduced? Not enough protein? Not enough calories? Toxic crap leaving the body?
