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

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).

PreOrderTodayI’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.

Picture40

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!

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. 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!

  2. What if I preordered via Amazon?

    Adam Landry wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • Of course, I can’t sign the book, the buy 2 get 1 free doesn’t apply to Amazon orders, and Amazon won’t be shipping the book until the end of the month, but if you dig up your Amazon order confirmation email and email it to me (mark at marksdailyapple dot com) I will be happy to send you the Shopping List and pen. Thanks for your pre-order and Grok on!

      Mark Sisson wrote on March 10th, 2011
      • I ordered one on Amazon too. But I’m okay with ordering a second through your website as well. I think I ended up buying 6 Primal Blueprints and 5 of the first cookbooks, just to give out to friends. I never seem to get my copy back! hahaha…love it!

        I’ll be happy if this book is only half as good as the first one! Keep them coming!

        Cajungrokgirl wrote on March 10th, 2011
      • Bah, I just canceled the amazon preorder and grab a an extra couple books for the family. What the hell, right. Mark you do a good job.

        Adam Landry wrote on March 10th, 2011
  3. 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

    Mike wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • 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)

  7. Ordered mine. I also finally remembered to order a shirt as well. Yeah!

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

    Michal wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • 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.

      Bobby wrote on March 10th, 2011
      • The shopping list got me too Bobby :)

        Casey wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • Yes, the buy 2 get 1 free puts the price per book at just $16, $2.61 less than Amazon. You’ll get it sooner, signed (if you order soon!) with free S&H and the laminated shopping list and pen, too. All-in-all I think it’s a steal, but I’m sort of biased. ;)

      Mark Sisson wrote on March 10th, 2011
  9. I was thinking about purchasing the original BP cookbook but decided to get this one instead!

    I can’t wait to try some of the recipes!

    Cireena wrote on March 10th, 2011
  15. Done! I make so many of the recipes from the original cookbook – I can’t wait to see what this one has in store!

    JennF wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • I guarantee it won’t disappoint, JennF. My thinking is that even if only a few recipes become absolute staple meals – dishes that you eat and enjoy over and over for years – the books pays for itself many times over, and that we have dozens of just such meals in this book. Thank you (and everyone!) for your order!

      Mark Sisson wrote on March 10th, 2011
  16. Oh how timely this is…. always looking for the quick and easy primal way, I literally got the post and bought the book seconds later lol!

    Mary wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • Plus Mark is right, it is expensive to have a blog like his and I want to support one of my most valuable resources!

      Mary wrote on March 10th, 2011
      • Thanks, Mary. Yes, I want to see MDA continue to thrive. I like to think I’ve found a nice to way to fund it without being too obtrusive to readers and newsletter subscribers. We’ll have a big announcement like this a few times a year, and the odd sidebar ads only promoting things that support a healthy Primal lifestyle in the modern world. Thank you for the support!

        Mark Sisson wrote on March 10th, 2011
      • ^^^Ditto!^^^

        I am SO appreciative of all the awesome info I get from your site Mark and the fact that you manage to keep it free is a HUGE thing. Thanks again!

  17. 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!

    kennelmom wrote on March 10th, 2011
  18. Hi Mark,

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

    ForbiddenFruit wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • This offer is good for PBers anywhere in the world. The only caveat is that free S&H is for domestic orders only.

      Mark Sisson wrote on March 10th, 2011
      • Thanks Mark.

        Ordered :-)

        I hope you have a speedy carrier across the ocean as I can’t wait!

        ForbiddenFruit wrote on March 10th, 2011
      • 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 handler as there was only the domestic option. I take it there’s an option later in the process for overseas orders, that I didn’t get to?..

        I’ll place my order now and take advantage of the great buy 2 get1 free do deal, but I’m gutted that I missed out on a signed copy now :-(

    • We sized the shopping list to fit inside the book (just a hair smaller than book page size), so it serves the dual purpose of a bookmark.

    Bruce wrote on March 10th, 2011
  24. 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?

    Dana wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • Go to the website and add 1 book to your shopping cart. Since you already purchased one it may populate the shopping cart with one paid book and one free book. If the free book doesn’t show up just give us a call at 888-774-6259 and we’ll help you out.

      Mark Sisson wrote on March 10th, 2011
      • Hello Mark,

        I received 2 copies of the book and I love the recipes so far! However I still haven’t received the 3rd copy… I did call the number you provided on the day I placed the order, and gentleman I spoke with said he would take care of it. I just wanted to make sure that the 3rd copy was on its way…

        Thank you!

    Dana wrote on March 10th, 2011
    • I placed an order for a fixed amount of these shopping lists. If any remain after the special offer I’ll be selling or packaging them with other products in some way. Stay tuned!
