I 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.
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:

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.
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!
