The Contest:

An oldie, but goodie. Originally inspired by a Time photo montage featuring families from around the world surrounded by a week’s worth of their groceries, I told readers to surround themselves with a week’s worth of their Primal groceries. Check out the results from 2010:

So round up the kids (or parents, or fiance, or roommates) and toss all the groceries on the table, because I want people to see “What Grok Eats.” The pictures don’t have to be fancy, nor do they have to be 100% Primal (or even 80%, just so long as people can see what you eat in a week). Mad props go to the most Primal family, but the winner will be selected in a random drawing, so don’t feel obliged to play “Keeping up with the Grokses.” Email me the picture. Please use the email subject heading “Grocery Submission”. Otherwise, there’s a good chance I may completely miss your submission.

As long as there are groceries on the table and smiling faces, you’re entered to win.

Examples:

From the NY Times:

The winner from 2009:

Now it’s your turn.

The Deadline:

January 25, midnight PDT.

Who is Eligible:

Anyone can enter. In the case of an international winner, a substitute prize of equal value will be awarded.

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

A random drawing will be held among all entrants who submit adequate photos.

  1. LOVED the NY Times article where they showed families from around the world with a weeks worth of groceries. So enlightening!

    1. I had the root beer flavored one. It’s actually pretty good! I know Target has them where I live as well as Kroger’s (if you live in the USA).

  2. Always something interesting to find at the Daily Apple. Definitely appreciate the discount codes!

  3. Time article is awesome! Interesting to see the ‘American’ foods that have made their way around the world.

  4. Question about the fish above – Mark you wrote “fresh” but the link says they are flash frozen, will you be sourcing never frozen fish to be overnighted?

  5. The Time Magazine montage certainly puts things in perspective. I love that the family from Chad spends just $1.23 USD on a week’s worth of food, and they all look slim, trim and healthy! The Australian family, on the other hand…..
