Contest: What’s Your Five?

The Prize:

A signed poster! You can frame it. You can laminate it.  You can bend it and wear it as a hat. In times of emergency you can fold it into a flotation device for a small mammal, perhaps a hamster. And most importantly, you can hang it on the wall of your kitchen, your study, your hall, dining room, lounge, library, ballroom, billiard room, or conservatory. You can’t put a price tag on the information provided on this poster. And while, technically, I did put a price tag on it ($14.95 at, order now!), this poster is signed, and my signature has been known to fetch upward of five million dollars (see note at bottom) in certain online auction houses.  If you already have a poster, sleep well at night knowing that I still have over a thousand dollars worth of merch to give away in the next four days.

The Contest:

Have a favorite Primal food? Have five favorite Primal foods? Today’s contest is inspired by RockStarEddy’s forum post. If you could only live with five foods for the rest of your life, what would they be? List them in the comments section. One winner will be picked at random.

The Deadline:

Midnight, tonight!

Who is Eligible:

Everyone. Everywhere.

NOTE: My signature has never been auctioned. Five million is my best guess. It may only fetch a dollar. When someone will pay $50,000 for an out-of-commission Volkswagon just because it appeared on a popular ABC supernatural mystery show, who knows what people are willing to spend money on these days.

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. Fire (one might not find it a food, but it certainly is. the ash can be used to replenish nutrients and the presence of fire feeds our spirits)

    I believe in sticking with what works, and these are exactly what I had on my farm growing up.
    And since cows have milk (butter, cheese), meat, fat, liver, bones, and hide, and chickens have meat, feathers, and eggs, I actually could live the rest of my life with these things!

    What, a cow is not food? Of course it is, just requires a little preparation!
