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).

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.

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!

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 until March 25. You can only get it from 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. 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.

    • 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

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

  5. 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 :-(

  6. If I order 3, can I get them shipped to different locations?

    Brent wrote on March 12th, 2011
  7. 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?

  8. I preordered this book a few days ago and after putting in all of my information, including credit card info, it said that I would recieve an email conformation. I have not recieved that email yet, should I be concerned or are you guys just backlogged?

    Amanda wrote on March 12th, 2011
  9. I just read the table of contents and cannot wait to try out the complex flavor combinations the book has in store for me. Everything sounds so tasty and fun to make for a chef like myself!

  10. I ordered the book as soon as I received the email on March 10. I still have not received the book. The website indicates that it is shipped. I wonder why it is taking so long. I live in San Diego…

  12. This is my first post! My wife and I received our autographed copy of the book yesterday! It’s an amazing group of recipes and the book looks fantastic! We have been Primal for almost a year now and this book will make things MUCH easier on me(the cook) :). We had the Steak with Romesco Sauce and Broccoli with Almond Dressing and then a Big-ASS salad w/o meat. AWESOME flavor and very unique. We loved it! My wife is on her way to the grocery right now to restock and get a few new things we would normally not have so I can continue to make every recipe in the book. Bravo to Mark and Jennifer and everyone else involved with the book! And on a side note: Thanks to The information, guidance, recipes and of course all of the amazing stories from people who have gone through the process, make my day a little brighter and push me to be better and healthier. Thanks again!

  13. I made the Pork Cauliflower Fried Rice tonight…AWESOME! Funny story…I had my dad over for dinner and he loved it, when he asked what all was in it I went thru the list of ingredients and when I go to cauliflower, he looked puzzled and said “hum, I didn’t get any cauliflower in mine”…he really thought the cauliflower was white rice! Interesting too since I haven’t made rice for him in years!!!!

  14. Got my book today. Looks great! I’m going to take the offal plunge and start with chicken livers.

    • I got mine today, and I too am cooking up some chicken livers!

  15. Got my book today…don’t see the shopping list (though I did get the dry-erase pen). How big is the shopping list? 8.5 x 11?

    Nick Powers wrote on April 5th, 2011
  16. The shopping list was inside the book when I received it.

    I’m still waiting on my 3rd copy… I’ve placed 2 orders but I haven’t received my 3rd copy yet. I emailed about a week ago but no response so far.

    Dana wrote on April 5th, 2011
  17. Hi Mark! Thanks for writing this book, its been fun and delicious to experiment with.

    One question for you, if you have the time…

    I know these dishes are all supposed to be Primally Approved. But the Cinnamon Walnut Crackers have 19 polyunsaturated grams of fat, and in the Primal Blueprint you say “strictly avoid PUFAs”. Please shed some light!

    Thanks for everything :)
