Contest: Make a Primal Blueprint Recipe Video

cowI announced this contest last week to give you a little extra time to work on it. And I’m publishing it again today just in case you missed it in last week’s post.

Per annual tradition, once again it’s time to make some delicious Primal dishes.

US Wellness has long been a favorite meat spot for MDA readers. A few years ago they donated pemmican and the popular 5-gallon bucket of fat. The last several years they?ve gone whole hog. And by hog, I mean cow. And they?re doing it again this year. US Wellness has generously offered up a cow to the winners of this contest.

And I?m not just talking about a bucket of chuck. The winners will receive sirloin, brisket, short ribs, back ribs, rib-eye steaks, T-bone steaks, NY strip steaks, Delmonico steaks, filets, bottom round roasts, center cut roasts, chuck, tongue, liver, heart, kidney, beef tallow, marrow bones, beef stock, and an oxtail. Heart and tongue not your thing? No worries. This year?s winners will get to choose exactly what they want as they?ll be receiving $1500 worth of US Wellness gift certificates they can use to order hundreds of pounds of their preferred bovine cuts ? all grass fed, grass finished. Check out this Grass Fed Goodness video where you can watch your prize/meal grazing around in sweet Missouri pastures.

The Contest:

Create and upload a 15 second to 1 minute long Primal recipe video to Instagram. Have you mastered the omelet? Are you an organ meat fiend? Maybe your salad is so mean, it can win a chili cookoff. If so, let the world in on your secrets. Grab your smartphone, and show us how to make something Primal. In previous years, we?ve asked you to upload and record your Primal recipes to YouTube, but this was such a hit last year, we?re doing it again! Creativity is key, because Instagram videos are limited to 1 minute. Just make sure your video relates in some way to the Primal Blueprint eating plan. Show the world (how to prepare) your best Primal dish and you could be the winner of a whole bunch of meat. For ideas on what you can do, check out these clever Instagram chefs:

The Contest Details:

Follow the following Instagram accounts: MarksDailyApple, USWellnessMeatsPrimalKitchenFoods, ThePrimalBlueprint, and PrimalPublish.

Upload your video to Instagram with the title of your recipe, list of ingredients and instructions, followed by #1MinPrimal. Then finally, tag @MarksDailyApple in your post.

*Note: If your Instagram account is listed as private, your video will not show up in the public feed. For a workaround, shoot MarksDailyApple a direct message on Instagram and we?ll follow your account.

The Deadline: Sunday, January 22, midnight PST.

Who is Eligible:

This one is global, but keep in mind that the US Wellness gift certificates are not available to residents outside the U.S. In the event of a non-U.S. team winning, a prize of equal value will be given as substitute.

How A Winner Will Be Decided:

Select video submissions will be reviewed and posted toward the end of the Challenge. The Worker Bees and I will choose a list of finalists to be voted on by readers.

Fine Print:

MDA reserves the right to publish any videos submitted.

We ask that any videos submitted to this contest remain live on Instagram after the challenge for future visitors to Mark?s Daily Apple to enjoy.

Good luck, everyone. Can’t wait to see the amazing videos you put together. Grok on!

    1. Pam, can you share which link you’re unable to open? My team checked the links this morning, and all opened. With a time-out situation, sometimes going back to it later works. Let us know if the problem keeps happening for you.

      1. Pam is talking about the issues with the forum that have been going on for several months now. There are time outs EVERY DAY some short timed, others longer and people are being logged out while trying to respond to their journals or other posts. Nutrition sub-forum hasn’t been updating since November 24th and posts that contain no troublesome content at all are being ‘unapproved’ without having the opportunity to re-post since the info is simply gone.

        If you are serious about getting the forum back on track you and your team better hurry because you are losing valuable legit members to the current issues.

        1. Alexandra, I appreciate the message and the information about specific issues you’re seeing on the forum. I’ve forwarded your message to my staff. Contrary to what some forum members have said lately, I have no intention of letting the forum go. We’re very close at this point and hope to be putting a definitive solution in place this week or next. I’ll be making an announcement when the time comes.

          1. Thank you for the update Mark. Very much appreciated.

            It never occurred to me until just now to check the oldest posts on the Nutrition sub-forum and I discovered that’s where all the ‘vanished’ posts since November 24th went to. Perhaps this knowledge is helpful to your staff for being able to reorganize things.

            I never had any doubts about your intentions.
