Top 10 Reasons to Pre-Order Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals

By Mark Sisson
93 Comments

UPDATE: This special pre-order offer is now expired. While the 20% discount no longer applies, order a copy of Quick & Easy Meals today and you will still receive the Primal Blueprint Shopping List (while supplies last) and FREE S&H (domestic orders only).

I’m very excited to announce that Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals will begin shipping next week! Since releasing The Primal Blueprint back in 2009 countless readers have asked me a) “what exactly should I eat?” and b) “how can I do it with little to no time?”. Last year, professional chef Jennifer Meier and I put our heads together to answer the first question. The result was the original Primal Blueprint Cookbook. On the heels of its success we jumped straight into the task of answering the second question. And now, I’m proud to say, our mission is complete. In this new book you’ll find over 100 mouth-watering recipes with easy-to-follow instructions and 300 brilliant, full-color, glossy photographs to guide and inspire you to cooking Primal meals in 30 minutes or less.

To mark this occasion and to thank loyal Mark’s Daily Apple readers I’ve put together a special 72-hour limited-time pre-order offer for you (offer expires at 10 am PST, Sunday, March 13). Continue reading to learn why you should pre-order your copy of Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals today!

1. Get 20% off the cover price.

Pre-order Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals in the next 72 hours and you’ll save 6 bucks off the regular retail price.

2. Get a FREE laminated Primal Blueprint Shopping List.

Custom made for this special pre-order offer, this Primal Blueprint Shopping List comes laminated in durable plastic and with a fine-point dry erase marker. Not sure if it’s Primal? Check the list.

Jerusalem artichokes? Check.

Macadamia oil? Check.

Gooseberries? Check.

Use the list every time you visit your local grocery store or farmers’ market and you’ll rest assured that you’re eating like Grok.

3. Autographed copy for first 1,000 pre-orders.

UPDATE: In the interest of avoiding carpal tunnel I’m going to have to end this part of the offer as the first 1,000 pre-orders have already been placed! But don’t worry. If you order by Sunday, 10am PST, you can still get the 20% discount, the Shopping List, free S&H and support Mark’s Daily Apple in the process. Grok on!

During the Primal Blueprint Cookbook launch of 2010 the first 1,000 pre-orders were placed in mere hours, so if you’d like the genuine John Hancock of Jennifer Meier and yours truly to grace the first page of your copy you better act fast!

4. Get FREE Shipping and Handling for a limited time.

Shipping and handling is a pain, isn’t it? If you pre-order now, you can avoid the shipping costs and get the book for a flat fee. (Disclaimer: Free shipping to US customers only.)

5. Take advantage of the Buy 2 Get 1 Free limited-time offer.

Purchase 2 copies and I’ll ship you a 3rd copy for free. All three copies will come signed (if you order within the first 1,000, see #3 above) and each will be accompanied with a Primal Blueprint Shopping List and pen. Just add 2 copies to your shopping cart and the 3rd copy will show up for free. This too only lasts 72 hours so grab a copy for your friends and family members now while the offer is still kickin’.

6. If you like The Primal Blueprint Cookbook and MDA recipes, you’ll love Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals.

We took years of experience cooking Primal dishes and countless hours tasting and testing in the kitchen to bring you the best of the best in this new cookbook volume. Additionally, we’ve listened to feedback from readers of the first cookbook. This time around the cookbook comes with an index (so searching for a recipe with a particular ingredient is a breeze) and macronutrient breakdowns for each recipe (so you know the fat, carb and protein content of each meal). If you’ve tried and enjoyed any Primal Blueprint recipes in the past, I guarantee you’ll find something you love in this new edition.

7. It will give you the kick start you probably need.

You’re ready to lose weight, get fit, and improve your health, but you don’t know where to begin! This book tells you exactly what to eat and how to prepare it in easy-to-follow instructions and with step-by-step photos. No more guesswork needed. Just flip open the book for Primal-certified breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes.

8. Because you want to support Mark’s Daily Apple!

Mark’s Daily Apple is a labor love… a very expensive labor of love. Between hosting fees, development work, graphic designers and everything else that goes into maintaining a successful blog, the costs add up. To be frank, the only way I can fund this site and continue to give away all of this free content is to sell books and other products. If you’ve personally received any value from Mark’s Daily Apple and The Primal Blueprint I hope you will consider picking up a copy today so MDA can continue to thrive and reach more people just like you.

9. If you don’t like it, I’m offering a 100% money back guarantee.

Just try the recipes for a month and I’m sure you’ll be hooked. If you don’t notice an appreciable improvement in body composition and health, or don’t find this to be the best Primal/paleo/low-carb cookbook on the market return it and I’ll refund your money. Just one taste of any recipe and I’m absolutely certain you’ll love it.

10. Be the first on the block to receive it.

Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals will not be available in stores or online retailers (including Amazon.com) until March 25. You can only get it from PrimalBlueprint.com. So grab your copy today to avoid the wait, and to get the official early adopter badge. (Disclaimer: The early adopter badge doesn’t really exist. Reference to the early adopter badge was only inserted for the purpose of eliciting a few chuckles. Please don’t email me about not receiving an early adopter badge with your cookbook.)

(Bonus Reason: You just may be buying a copy of the worst cookbook of 2011!)

So pre-order today and get a first edition, hardcover, autographed copy of Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals at 20% off the cover price with a FREE Primal Blueprint Shopping List and FREE shipping and handling. Thanks, everyone, and Grok on!

P.S. Tell your friends about this offer by clicking “ShareThis” below. They’ll thank you for the heads up.

That’s great! I bet there are a lot of folk that want to give it a try, but are scared of all the food prep. Bravo sir!

The blue border across the top of the cover looks like it says “dairy-free”. So I would imagine most if not all are dairy-free

Great, thanks! My employer blocks whatever site MDA uses for images so I could not see the cover 🙂

(Not sure why, but it looks like my original comment about dairy was removed or something – which is what I suppose you were responding to)

I am going to take advantage of the “buy 2” offer! I just got my brother on board the PB train & can give the 3rd to another 🙂
Thanks!!! (I love the pre-printed shopping list – what a glorious idea)

How come it’s cheaper on amazon. I figure removing the middle man should remove costs.

I’m assuming it is because you don’t get the deal of buy 2 get one free as well as the shopping list that comes with the book if you order it from the site. The shopping list was the thing that sold me. Kudos for that.

Who needs 10 reasons???? The minute I saw that baby pop up on my Amazon “suggested for you” list, it was pre-ordered!

Thanks for what, I’m sure, will be another great cookbook!! I almost had a panic attack when I misplaced my original PB Cookbook!

Hi Mark,

Do us UK PB’ers still get the goodies as well if we order or are you only shipping to the US?

I just ordered one and just realized there was the buy 2 get 3rd free deal. If I order the 2nd copy separately, would that still entitle to a free copy?

Ordered – looks great. Hope it doesn’t take too long to get across the Atlantic 🙂

Canceled my Amazon order since they weren’t going to ship until sometime in June, not sure why. Anyway, thanks. I look forward to receiving the book since I am not much of a cook…

Sorry. I forgot to mention that I will be leaving on the 23rd of March. Will I receive the pre-orders by then if I live in San Francisco?

Hi Mark,

When you search the book title on amazon.ca (Canadian Amazon), you get 2 results with different book covers and ISBN numbers. What’s happening?

Finished. Ordered one for my husband and I and one for my mom and one more to keep on hand, you never know when you will need a great gift. And what could be a better gift than the gift of health.
Was I just not paying close enough attention, but when is it released?
I can not wait!

Hi, may i know what’s the difference of information between this and the original ”The Primal Blueprint Cookbook”? Do some of the recipes ‘overlap’?

Thanks alot.

Order one for me and each of my 3 brothers.

Would you consider offering the shopping list as a paid item for those of us who can’t get orders in by Sunday? That’s right smack in between two paydays for me.

So, if we took advantage of the buy 2, get 1 free, does each copy come with its own laminated shopping list/pen? Ordered mine from pb dot com 🙂 Thanks Mark!

Anybody getting an extra autographed one? I have autographed versions of the other two and wanted to complete the set. I wasn’t near a computer yesterday when I got the e-mail and the operator said I would have plenty of time! Apparently he underestimated the MDA community!

Awesome! I cannot wait to get my hands on this. I am all for quick, healthy and delicious meals 🙂

Thanks Mark. I started to order this as soon as the email arrived (was day time here in New Zealand) but canceled it when I got to the section asking me to select shipping option as there was only the domestic option.

I didn’t realise that I needed to select the domestic shipping and carry on with the order and international shipping would be calculated at the end.

Anyway, I’ve placed my order now and am taking advantage of the great buy 2 get1 free do deal 🙂

but I’m gutted that I missed out on a signed copy though 🙁

Excellent, I’ve ordered 3. The shipping to the UK still said £0,00, but there was a ‘handling’ charge added, so I guess that’s it?
