Contest Results: Primal Breakfast Pics

Last week I asked you to send in pics of your Primal breakfasts. Nearly 100 fantastic photos flooded my inbox. I’ve included them all below. (Click on the thumbnails for full size versions.)

These photos stand to represent the variety of breakfasts on the Primal eating plan and how delicious Primal foods are. I know many people find the breakfast to be the most difficult meal to figure out when making the transition to the Primal lifestyle. Many of us grew up on Frosted Flakes, Pop Tarts, English muffins, waffles, pancakes and toaster strudels as early morning staples. As you can see, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Revisit this page from time to time for Primal breakfast ideas, and point skeptical friends and family to this page to see their mouths water.

I’ve randomly selected a winning photo. The lucky MDA reader that submitted the photo has just won 5 gallons of fat from U.S. Wellness. Yes, you read that right. 5 gallons of fat – beef tallow to be precise. And the lucky winner is…


You’ve got to love Tamara’s email message that accompanied her winning photo (seen above):

Venison sautéed in bacon grease with roasted pearl onions and garlic, with a side of local organic (and HUGE and SWEET!) blueberries.

And oh yeah, I found a BULLET in my meat!!  That definitely creates a rather primal impression at breakfast.  I didn’t shoot the lovely animal who has provided me with many, many meals, but I’m sure going to have to show my dad what I found in his kill!

Warm regards,
