  1. I love seeing the happy faces of so many people that embrace this way of eating and living. Especially the kids!! My son struggles constantly because he is fed standard american garbage when he’s with his father and it really affects him on a behavioral and emotional level. It just makes me feel less alone in this struggle to eat real food!! I love you people!!

  2. So much fun to see. Wish I had managed to take one. But great to see all the folk getting healthy and thriving.

    Awesome photos! Grok on everyone.

  3. Amazing to see our pic and realize 90% of that food is gone already! Hungry, hungry family!!

  4. ok next time I’m taking a photo. This is very inspiring. I love the kids, cat, and chicken helping out in their unique ways! Thank you to all the folks who provided us with inspiration!

  5. This is really neat. I would be interested to see the receipts of the grocery shopping to see what other people are paying for their primal/paleo groceries around the country/world.

  6. Rats! Lost another contest but congrats to Chris for winning and all the others who took the time to set up the photo shoots.

  7. My Kingdom for a Cracker! Anyone know of any good primal crackers I can spread butter on? I’ve tried using dehydrated plantains as crackers but am looking for something other. Jillz makes good crackers, expensive, made from tapioca starch. Any others?

    1. I make crackers out of flax seed, sunflower seeds, chia and sesame seeds. They are awesome and taste/feel like real crackers. Here’s how:

      1. Take one cup flax seed and soak in 1.5 cups water for an hour or so until flax absorbs water. It will appear ‘sticky’. This helps the crackers stick together.
      2. Take 1/2 cup sunflower seeds and soak in water for an hour. Drain.
      3. Add any other seeds you have – sesame, chia, whatever, and mix all together. I like to add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt, a clove of fresh garlic and a tsp of fresh rosemary, but you can add whatever spices you like.
      4. Put parchment paper down on two large cookie trays. Glop half the mixture on each tray. Top with another piece of parchment paper. Can use non-stick coconut oil spray if you have it, but not mandatory.
      5. Press the mixture out evenly – having the top parchment layer helps it not stick to your hands. Try to get it as thin as possible.
      6. When you’re done you’ll notice the top parchment is now stuck to the mixture. No worries, just pop the whole thing in a 170 degree oven for an hour. Then open the oven and remove the top layer of parchment – it will be easy to remove now. If I want extra salty crackers I sprinkle a little salt on the surface at this time.
      7. Bake for another hour or until your desired level of crispiness.
      8. Break into pieces and enjoy!

        1. It’s 170F. It’s mostly whatever your lowest setting on your oven is. If you have a dehydrator that works too. If you want to keep even more of the awesome benefits of the seeds, cook or dry them as low as a temperature as you can. Sometimes I cook it on 170F for an hour, then turn the oven off and leave them in there overnight, and they’re crispy in the morning.

    1. I would have voted for the one with the chicken, too!! To me that implies that he is raising his own eggs – which is awesome. Though that does look like a rooster in his arms…

      1. Yep, that’s a big barred rock roo. We raise chickens for meat and eggs. My son (he’s 14) has his own organic garden and grows a lot of our produce too 🙂

  8. I am having a hoard time getting signed on. What do I need to do? I am 81, and still need help in doing things right. I think I have orderd the books to start with, will you verify this? Thanks Claudia

    1. Claudia, I’m just another poster like you, so I can’t help directly with this, but maybe I can help send you to the right place.

      If you go up to the top of this page, under the words “Mark’s Daily Apple” and also under the picture, is a horizontal band that says “Home, Start Here, About”…etc. Find the one that says “Contact” and click there.
      Good luck!

  9. simply orange drinks which are owned by coca-cola are anything but healthy. Just sayin’.

  10. OH MY GOSH, I cannot believe I won!!!! Thank you so much for having these contests, and for having this 21 day challenge, I have already lost 7 pounds and dropped 4 percent body fat!!

    Thank you Mark, and thank you to ALL of the SPONSORS of the contests!!!!!

  11. Nice to see that others enjoy Gerolsteiner mineral water too!

  12. I am curious as to why Chris won the contest. Nothing against Chris or his photo, but please tell me he did not win just because he had certain packaged products (like Primal Fuel?) on the table? There are a lot of packaged things in his shot, and lots of other shots with fewer packages, and more fresh vegetables, fruits, and so on. What made a winner in this contest?

  13. OMG somebody bought bananas there gonna get obese 🙁 🙁

  14. Yes, I’m afraid that the Primal Fuel issue crossed my mind, as well. No disrespect to Chris, but there looked to be a lot more fresh, whole food in some of the other shots. And on that note, what *are* the interesting green ‘sausages’ in the lower left of Ero S’s picture, please?

    1. Sooooo sorry for the late reply! In the offchance you ever read the reply:

      The green sausages are called “Chorizo de toluca”. It is a special type of chorizo they make in mexico.

      It is spicy (from some chiles in it), a bit sour, and delicious. Great for breakfast scrambled with eggs… provided you’d try them on a boat or in your home…

  15. Hey Mark,

    Where do you buy your beef jerky or what brand beef jerky do you buy? Any advise. Thanks!
