A couple weeks ago I gave this “Dear Readers ” format a try. There was such a tremendous response that I may make it a regular feature of Mark’s Daily Apple. What do you say? I love giving my advice and opinions, but add mine with all the knowledgeable readers of MDA and then you really have something. Take a look at some of the questions I’ve received below and share you stories, experiences and knowledge in the comment board. Thanks everyone!
We see a lot about the importance of eating grass fed beef, but what about other meats?
I’ve never seen a pig out on a pasture eating grass, nor a chicken, but obviously not all meats are created equal.
At my local butcher, for instance, i noticed that they had free range corn fed pork. Now, from reading your blog and others my mind instantly went “free range = good, corn fed = bad”. So how do we find good quality pork and chicken (or other meats)?
Hello good friend! I appreciate what you do and getting the word out that there are alternatives to what is shoved down our throats, but I’ll get right to the question. Tell me what you know about “primal contraception”. What if Grock had a primal marriage but wasn’t ready for those little Grockaroos just yet? What do you think he would do? My wife has trouble with conventional contraception. She experiences mood difficulties, very low libido and often erratic periods. We’re trying to find a more “natural” way to have enjoyable sex and be able to plan for when we want to bring a child into the world. We have been to the gynecologist many times but they seem to just give you the pill they happen to be pushing that week and then it’s off with you! We really thought we had something with the copper IUD, but her uterus is apparently too curved and would have to have a child before being able to use the thing. Thanks for your continued insight.
As a follower of a clean healthy lifestyle (nearly 100% primal) I sometimes worry about tablets & pills etc. I was wondering if you know of a natural or primal painkiller, as I am currently suffering from terrible a toothache. Probably all my years of eating too much sugar!
Not sure where to post on your site as I am new but what about milk kefir, how does it fit in the Primal Blueprint? Tons of probiotic benefit in this gem, more so than yogurt by a long shot. Especially when your making the real deal from kefir grains and not from powder mixes or worse yet purchasing the commercial “dead” kefir at your local grocery store.
Note from Mark: This question was posed in the forum  and there has already been a great response from the Primal community. Chime in here (in the comment board) or explore the forum  to offer your take on this very common question from Primal newbies.
I am new to the Primal Blueprint and I am having issues with what to have for breakfast. I live at a hall of residence (coz I am at University) so don’t have access to eggs and stuff (I also don’t have a microwave/oven etc so can’t cook anything). For breakfast I generally have yoghurt (I know, not primal!) with whey protein powder (also not primal!) and some nuts and seeds.
Is this bad? And does anyone have any possible other ideas? I am a very much a breakfast person and I still like to have a relatively large breakfast. For lunch and dinner I have salad with some protein, which I think is ok?
