Contest Poll: The 2012 Grokfeast Challenge

I’d like to thank the 14 groups who participated in the Grokfeast Challenge this year. Your level of creativity, commitment, and enthusiasm serves as a hallmark for Primal living at its best. It’s been an immense pleasure reading and publishing your experiences on Mark’s Daily Apple.

As good as they all were (seriously, again, great job, everyone), only one group can win the cow. One more shout out to US Wellness, who is donating all the grass-fed beef. If you ever want to take your beef eating to the next level, hit up their newsletter and join the grass-fed revolution.

OK, now on to business. Below are the four finalists. I’ve posted the finalists’ videos and picture, but please click through to the individual posts before voting. Check out the recipes and read their stories. Then vote on the Grokfeasters who you believe best captured the spirit of going Primal. You have until Monday at 4:00 PM PDT to vote.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Grokfeast in Illinois
