Big-Ass Salads—Worker Bee Style (and a Contest!)

Nearly a decade ago when I described my daily lunch as a “Big-Ass Salad” I didn’t realize it would become a thing. But it has, and it’s taken on a life of its own here in the office (and even on YouTube). The advent of the Primal Kitchen® dressings have only made it more so, especially with the staff’s observations of how much dressing I tend to use. (Moderation isn’t always a good thing.)

So, today the Bees decided to share their own “Big-Ass Salad” creations. To extend the theme even further, they want to see yours as well, and we’ve got a prize for one lucky Big-Ass winner.

Check out their creations below as well as the contest details.

Grand Prize Challenge Contest: Enter To Win

Not everything about the 21-Day Challenge and its mission to change your body and life is easy. But today’s something is.

I’m announcing the grand prize for this Challenge today because—well, why not start things with a bang.

This year’s grand prize might just be the biggest I’ve ever given away, and I know Grok would be all over this package if he could.

The Grand Prize:

Butcher Box has been a favorite meat source for MDA readers, and they’ve generously offered up an entire year’s worth of their meat boxes to the lucky winner. But that isn’t all. To offer you all the marinades and condiments you’ll need to enjoy these goodies, I’m throwing in a Primal Kitchen® “Build-Your-Own-Dressing/Marinade” 4-Pack and our brand new Organic Unsweetened Ketchup and Organic Spicy Brown Mustard every month for a year.

Bacon & Cheddar Keto Muffins

It’s hard to decide which is more delicious, these savory bacon and cheddar keto muffins, or the original blueberry flavor. Both flavors are made from the same basic recipe with a simple gluten-free ingredient list that includes almond flour, butter, heavy cream and an egg.

The lightly sweetened blueberry version is a delicious morning treat, but this combination of bacon and sharp cheddar is equally hard to resist. Who doesn’t love bacon? These rich and flavorful muffins are perfect for busy mornings (keep a batch in the fridge or freeze, and warm one in the microwave) or for leisurely weekend brunches.
