A Brand New Primal Blueprint Cookbook PLUS a Limited-Time $1 Million Bonus Giveaway

UPDATE: The promotion outlined in this article ended on Dec. 12, 2012. Many thanks to everyone that participated.

Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings is now available, and I’m giving you some incredible bonus packages when you buy one or more copies over the next week. But more on that in a moment. First, the real star of the show.

After the extraordinary success of The Primal Blueprint Cookbook and Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals, co-author and chef Jennifer Meier and I sat down to dream up the concept for the next cookbook. It didn’t take long because I had a personal itch to scratch.

We all have our go-to meals – meals that we eat day-in, day-out. Mine? An omelet for breakfast, a Big Ass Salad (BAS) for lunch, and grilled lamb chops and veggies for dinner. I almost never get tired of these meals. The key word in that sentence is almost. Variety is the spice of life, as they say, so the challenge was to find numerous ways to transform basic Primal meals into dishes that are not only better tasting, but better for you. And that’s exactly what we’ve done. A grilled steak is a grilled steak is a grilled steak. But a grilled steak smothered in our Coconut Cilantro Pesto, or topped with Bacon Chive Butter is out of this world!

Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings & Toppings is all about turning ho-hum meals into Primal masterpieces with delicious and nutritious sauces, dressings, marinades, condiments, spice blends, gravies, and other toppings. It includes over 120 easy-to-prepare recipes inspired by traditional and contemporary cuisine from around the world. From the staples (ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce, hot sauce, mayonnaise) to the innovative (Blueberry Chutney, Arugula Watercress Pesto, Avocado Lime Dressing), every recipe will enhance the nutritional value of your meal, using only Primal-approved ingredients. That means no gluten, grains, legumes, added sugar, or unhealthy oils.

    1. I bougnt the book but can’t sent you proof the words type in are to hard to figure out any suggestion on other options to get the bonus?

  1. wow, this is pretty amazing! Do you know when the books will be in chapters in canada? I just searched the website and only found ‘used’ copies so far.

  2. I ordered mine on October the 1st. Oh well. Early birds sometimes don’t get the worm. 🙁

    1. See the fine print, Steve:

      “Pre-orders will be honored for all bonus offers.”

      You too get the bonuses. Thank you for ordering a copy, and enjoy!

      1. Mark I can’t send receipt – Typing in words to match isnt’ working. Any other options to send in receipt?
        Love being Primal 🙂

  3. Does the cookbook provide plenty of gluten-free/celiac friendly recipes?

      1. Great! After your comment I now see it written at top of cookbook…thanks!

  4. “Special Event Bonus Offer” says both “limited to 3 orders” and “limited to 5 spots” – which is it?

    and, funny – partway down and I was thinking “this smells like Tim Ferriss!”

  5. And… PURCHASED! Thanks Mark. Can’t wait to try out the recipes.

  6. Cool, I finally finished primal blueprint a few days ago. I look forward to checking this one out. Are there many salad dressings in te book?

  7. Don’t see it available on amazon.ca – does this mean we don’t qualify in Canada? Or just that we have to purchase through .com?

    1. It appears it is on Amazon.ca: http://www.amazon.ca/Primal-Blueprint-Healthy-Dressings-Toppings/dp/0984755152/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354726039&sr=8-1

      Keep in mind this fine print, “Shipped bonuses (i.e. all physical bonuses in the 3 or more bonus offer) are only available to those with shipping addresses in the United States.”

      To be clear, all bonuses in the 1 book offer and all digital bonuses (i.e. all things that can be sent by email and don’t require shipping) in the 3 book offer and beyond are available to all international participants.

      1. It is on the amazon.ca website but it does not ship yet. I’ve ordered it but they don’t seem to have any idea as to when it will ship. 🙁

  8. Fantastic offer Mark, nice work. Order placed without hesitation !

  9. I do not see a kindle version available on Amazon! Am I just missing it?

  10. Hi Mark

    I don’t see it in digital format on Amazon! Please let me know how I can purchase it digitally.

    Thanks

    1. Stay tuned! We’re working on it. It was suppose to go live on Amazon today, and we’re hoping it will very shortly.

  11. Hello,
    I just bought a copy of your book hoping to get the The Friends and Family Bonus Offer but when I did the recipe fill out I got the The Primal Chef Bonus Offer instead. Was I suppose to order 2 books rather than 1 for the offer I wanted?

    1. The Primal Chef Bonus Offer is for 1-2 books and the Friends and Family offer is for 3-7 copies. If you want to order 2 more, I’ll be happy to make sure this is updated for you!

      1. I follow ya now. Thank you for the offer Mark but I really just wanted the poster and I used that $10 gift card to get it.
        Huge fan of everything you have posted on your site. It has changed my life for the better and thank you for that!

  12. I am glad I purchased this book. But alas there are not bonuses for my digital version since it cost under $18.00. 🙁

    I’d pay the extra $6 for the bonuses!

    1. That was my question. I would like the bonuses and would pay extra for them.

      1. The kindle version qualifies. $18 is just the average price of the book on amazon. If you pay less than $18 you still get the bonuses. It’s about the number of copies you purchase, not the actual purchase price.

  13. Great idea! I cant wait to spice up my old recipes. Hopefully it will remove the complaint of “this again?” in our household ; D

    Thanks for all the bonuses, Mark! Best of luck with this book’s success – it looks like you’re on the right path!

  14. If I want to get this as a gift for my girlfriend and gift the bonus offers as well, is there a way to have the offers sent straight to her by putting her email in the form? Or do I have to forward the bonuses to her email?

  15. AHHH I’m so excited! just bought a bunch of copies (too include one for myself) for some great Christmas gifts and all the Bonuses for my Christmas gifts! I will be rockin the apron, hoodie, wristbands, reading… everything, and enjoying my jerky and supplements and coupons… Awwwright!
    The parents/relatives/friends getting them will be thankful (probably more than they know) for sure.
    Mark youda (cave)MAN!
    GROK ON!

  16. The offer says “Order one or more copies any format (physical or digital)” And then when you get to the Primal Chef Bonus offer it says “If you buy one book for $18.” I just purchased the new book and have all of the others on digital book. In ebook format none are over $18.00. Which is a good thing! But I am wondering if this is a mistake because it states that you can purchase a digital book.

    Thanks,

    Tracy

    1. Sorry for the confusion, Digital versions do qualify. $18 is just the average price of the book on Amazon. The first slide of each slideshow has the footnote “$18/book is an approximate price. Actual price will vary.”

  17. Just purchased on kindle and can’t wait to try the recipes. Beautiful pictures and simple instructions. I think coconut cilantro pesto will be my first…

  18. If I purchased it on iTunes for my iBook library, does that count? Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi
      I couldn’t seem to find it on iBooks and am having trouble buying an Ebook version from anywhere, including the Amazon link supplied. Any suggestions? I’m from Australia- perhaps there’s an access issue? Thank you 🙂

  19. Will an iBook version be available soon? I previewed it on Kindle and it looks amazing!

    1. My mistake, just found it in the iTunes Store! It eluded me the first time.

      1. Ah looks like its only available in the US store. Will it become available in the Cnd iTunes Store?

        Sorry for all the comments.

    1. The vast majority are completely dairy free. About 10 recipes contain dairy, and those that contain dairy are noted as such with a milk carton icon next to the recipe name in the table of contents.

  20. purchased, thanks Mark more food to make for the hungry primal masses.:)

  21. The Primal Blueprint audiobook will certainly help with the daily commute!

    Thanks Mark!

  22. See? There really is a Santa!! This is where I’m at now. Using primal friendly ingredients to make meals. Most of the time food is just fuel – going Primal makes food almost unimportant for anything other than nourishment. BUT – every so often I need food to entertain or comfort me. AND – I miss ketchup and mayo and BBQ sauce!! Thank you for this

  23. Done. Ordered. Can’t do many. Most around me think i’m looney. Even after 1 1/2 years of this. BUT I know I’ll enjoy it!

  24. Off-topic but I’d like go see how you knock up your omelette, Mark.

  25. Mark, I am 10 days into the 21 day challenge, have the other 2 cookbooks and ordered two of these 1 for me 1 for a gift… I was checking out the Primal wristband… I have to say.. disappointed… LOL, not a big deal but I’m betting if you use a nice Primal material; Woven or knot based wristband you’ll sell a lot of them… so many different materials you can use and obviously coloring the natural fiber wouldn’t be a big deal.. just a thought… appreciate the site; and all the awesome information… I am typing this from my “new” standup workstation…

  26. Just bought my copy on Amazon. I miss ketchup sometimes and also need a quick, tasty dressing that doesn’t require many ingredients.

  27. I am looking forward to this ebook!! Any idea when it will be available on Barnes and Noble? I just checked and it is still only available in hard copy on their site.

  28. Amazing book idea, Mark, thanks-I ordered. Primal is the only way I can lose weight and keep it off- Cursed metabolism!(and food sensitivities).
    Rock on.

  29. How long is the $10 MDA credit good for? I might not be able to use it for a bit. Thanks!

  30. Tried to buy Kindle version but Amazon says it is “not currently available”??

    Really looking forward to it once Amazon have sorted it out.

  31. I’m in Australia, and when I try to buy the Kindle version of the book from Amazon, it tells me:
    “Due to copyright restrictions, the Kindle title you’re trying to purchase is not available in your country”.
    I don’t want to buy the hardcover because shipping from Amazon to Australia is really expensive, and will probably cost more than the book itself! I also don’t have iTunes (nor do I want it) so I seem to be out of options for buying it. 🙁
    I realise the Amazon restrictions on countries for Kindle purchases is not your fault, but do you know if there’s any way to get it lifted? I’d really like to buy your new book!

    1. Ditto for me in New Zealand. I really want to buy it, but the shipping would be more than the book itself!

      1. Ditto – was going to be a belated birthday present to myself :o(

        1. Ditto from New Zealand… would love it if you could make the kindle version available to us down under!

    2. Yup, I’m in Australia too and unlike my earlier comment, now can’t find the Kindle version at all!!

      1. Another Aussie keen to buy tghe Kindle version too, but there is no link showing in Amazon for it. Hardcover only.

  32. Looks like my submission of Amazon receipt did not go through although message says only one submission per customer. Please verify receipt of Proof of Purchase.

  33. Hoping my Amazon receipt went through. I used the Windows 7 Snipping Tool and attached that. I got a message saying it was successful. I hope it was!!:)

  34. Is the Kindle edition going to reappear on Amazon? I could not buy it yesterday and today it disappeared completely 🙁

  35. Sounds good….. when will you be coming out with a Primal Crock Pot (slow cooker) cookbook??? I know I can look them up on line… but I like to have a cookbook to refer to.
    Thank you.

  36. Mark,
    I bought 1 copy of the cookbook yesterday evening and filled out the form with a picture of the receipt, but have yet to get any emails about the freebies. Just wondering what went wrong?

  37. Already purchased in New Zealand. Total cost inc shipping was $35.00 – still a great deal with all the bonus extras. Everything is more expensive here in NZ, especially food. Also can’t even get stuff you guys take for granted, like melatonin! (only from the doctor, at about US$75 for 14 days worth.) We just have to suck it up and accept it!

    1. And I’ve just been advised that delivery will be the forth week of January …..

  38. Do I need a kindle for the ebook version? Is this available in a PDF format that I can just download?

  39. I don’t know if this is addressed in the comments already, but is this cookbook friendly for those who can’t use dairy at all? Or, are a good chunk of the recipes dependent on dairy? Looks like an awesome idea for a cookbook!

    1. There are a few with dairy, yes. If that dairy called for is “butter” then we suggest using ghee instead, which has no dairy proteins or lactose (the major issues for those who do have issues).

  40. Am in Australia. Could not order iBook or Kindle version. Friend with USA account could not find it on iBook either.

    ;-(

  41. I am on oz too and I can’t find the digital version on iBooks or amazon either 🙁

  42. Just bought the e-book and it was almost instantly loaded to my Kindle Fire HD. I just wish the dishes (enhanced with these new sauces) would instantly appear on my table. Thank you, Mark, for helping me achieve healthy living.

  43. Unfortunately Mark i’m not able to find the kindle version on amazon.co.uk – do you know if it will soon become available?
    Many thanks 🙂

  44. I’m in Australia and can’t see any option for Kindle, will it eventually be available? Cheers

  45. Just order the book. Give me the occasion to see that “The Primal Blueprint” has been translated in French. I bought it too. I will finally be able to share it with my family and friend. Thank!

  46. I’d like to read this on my Kindle (and get the special offers), but it’s not available in Kindle format on amazon.co.uk yet.

  47. Hi,

    I just got my 3 books. I love this book. But, I never received the digital bonus. I was really looking forward to it and also the poster. Should I resubmit my reciept? Fine print said it should have arrived within 24 hours. Thanks 🙂

    1. This happened to me too, I emailed someone about it and they replied by just giving me directions on how to submit my receipt. I had already done that of course, so when I tried to re-submit it came up with an error message of only being able to complete 1 form per person. I’m hoping it’s just taking a little longer than expected and that I will receive the bonuses soon!

      1. Me too. I ordered mine on Tuesday so it’s been more than a few days.

  48. Kindle edition is only available for the US, isn’t it? I hope it will be available in the UK soon…

  49. Yeah, I ordered mine and submitted the day of the posting, and I neither got an email confirmation or and word that I had received anything. Hope things work out soon.

    1. Me too, I was so looking forward to getting the audiobook of the Primal Blueprint!

  50. I just bought the book via Amazon and clicked the link to submit my receipt but I get an error saying only form per person. I understand this, but I didn’t submit the receipt before. I did, however, click the link…by just clicking the link am I entered? I wouldn’t think so but wanted to ask. Thanks!

  51. Oh ;-( It would have been cool with some extra shipping charge to received the hard bonuses …just too bad…

  52. I wondered if there was anyway to use the $10 voucher if you are from the UK? I tried to order another book and the handling fee was around $20..does the voucher only work on your website?

  53. I just bought a digital copy of the book but my receipt says I purchased the book 13 Dec 2012 at 12:48 am. I live in California and it is still 12 Dec 2012. will I still get my bonuses?

  54. Oh no! I’m new to the site, and just saw the friends and family deal. Is it too late?!

  55. sent my amazon receipt in on the 7th haven’t received a single bonus!

  56. I just called them and they said they will be sending my bonus’s. 🙂

    1. Got the hardcopy but want the eBook too this is crazy if its cause we are not in the US PDF would be even better as the kindle books can be off when there are so many good food porn pics

  57. I received everything except the subscription to Paleo Lifestyle E-Magazine. Is this forthcoming?

  58. Hi,

    Purchased this book and what incredibly wonderful recipes! We plan on trying every one of them!!!

    I like the containers, especially the glass jar type with the lids, as seen in the pictures of the dressings. Where can these containers be purchased?

    Thank you!
