Contest Poll: Grokku!

With hundreds of Primal haikus submitted yesterday you didn’t make it easy on me. In fact, I had such a difficult time awarding one winner that I’ve decided to chicken out and make you do it! I’ve boiled it down to my top 10 favorite Grokkus. Vote for your favorite below. The winner will receive 6 bars of each flavor of pemmican, original, honey and cherry free, and salt free (that’s 18 bars of meaty goodness).

This poll only lasts until 3 pm PST, so place your vote now!


In this fast paced world
Step back, return to your roots
Find your inner Grok


Ran barefoot today
People looked and gawked in shock
I’ll wear clothes next time.


They think we’re crazy
Cutting carbs and cardio
We’ll outlive them all


Diagnosed Type 2
Followed the Primal Blueprint
Numbers are normal


Goodnight insulin.
Good morning testosterone.
And hello ladies.


Wanna be like Grok?
take Conventional Wisdom
throw it out the door.


A country that’s sick?
Adopt a Primal Lifestyle.
That’s Healthcare Reform!


A poem for my 2-yr old. I might have to hang this over his crib.

Grok these things, my son:
Eat clean, sleep, lift, sprint and play.
Your future? Primal.


Primal haiku lacks
Indefinite articles
Much like Grok’s vocab


Me like to eat meat
Meat meat meat meat meat meat meat
Also vegetable

Notable Mentions

Once pale and doughy
Now Primal, ripped, skin glowing
wife thanks Grok nightly

Like a Grok! Oh, like
A Grok! Seger himself could
Not have sung better

Are these hands my own?
Dermatitis is no more
Thanks to grain-free life.

Ditch the running shoes
And all the processed junk food
Get back to nature

Deadlifted a cow.
Then I turned it into steaks
And ate like a king.
Mark is muscled, tan; slowly,
I put down the chips

modern life remains
only firm when seated sound
on ancient pillars
