Contest Results: Show Your Groceries

Way back on August 7 at the beginning of the Primal Blueprint Health Challenge I asked you to show your groceries. (Luckily no one was confused and thought I meant shouting groceries.) It was great to get a glimpse into the lives of other PBers and to be able to attach faces to names in the MDA community. So thanks to everyone for sending in your photos!

Take a look below to see happy, healthy families living the Primal lifestyle all over the globe. But first a little official business…

I held a random drawing to determine a winner and the lucky recipient of 5lbs of Kenia River Sockeye Salmon is…


A few nice grocery photos without smiling faces…

  1. How inspiring! Thanks to everyone who took the time to share. All of you are AWEsome!

  2. I love it! I love seeing everyone’s smiling faces and their groceries! Awesome!

    P.S. To the person who eats one cutie-patootie-blond-child per week (she’s in your pile of groceries – what was I supposed to think?), I’ve got a scoby I could send you if you’d like to start making your own kombucha. 😉

  3. This post couldn’t have come at a better time. Here I am, just having cleaned out my fridge, trying to make a grocery list and wondering what the heck to buy. I am such a newbie still, feeling equal parts overwhelmed and excited, and wishing I would quit dabbling with this and just jump in already! For some reason, actually seeing the pictures of the breakfasts, lunches and groceries do more for me than hours of reading about the primal lifestyle. So, a sincere thanks to everyone for inspiring me today.

  4. Somehow I couldn’t muster up the energy to get all our food together for a portrait but thanks to all that did.

    Aren’t we fortunate to have such great food available.

  5. thanks guys; I became a primal eater and walking 45 min. daily five days ago and feeling so much better. Your pictures convince this 59 yr old primal is the way to go. Thank you and thank you Mark.


  6. Sorry I came to this so late, but…someone should’ve sent in a photo of nothin’ but meat! Too many veggies. 😉 Don’t get me wrong, I love me some veggies, but come on! More bacon!

    1. I noticed when you eat lots of protein you don’t actually crave veges at all? meat is rich in micronutrients, i think veges are primarily for a little carb boost. one raw vegan campaigner suggests we eat mono meals, as do other animals in nature, eg only meat, or only vege (well she is probably eating just fruit)
      any thoughts?

      1. watched NETFLIX special documentary called Food (something)… all about going plant-based… eliminate all land animal meat/fats…. veges, fruit, nuts, seeds, grains, no dairy either

  7. shoot our groceries would be all meat, eggs and a couple veggies.. maybe some cheese and sour cream 🙂

  8. Another late comment – Wow, great photos, but I have to agree – I was expecting to see a lot more meat, and a lot less fruit. Sometimes all I eat is meat and eggs for a whole day

  9. mostly plant-based for me after loads of research, including The China Study. No meat or dairy: seeds, nuts, grains, oats, flax, barley, Ezekiel bread w. nut butter: all the protein and vitamins/minerals one needs, even omegas. Netflix documentary called Food (Inc?)… BUT

    LOVE the principles w. exercise, nature, etc. gained a lot from this.
