Contest Results: What’s in Your Primal Kitchen?

Primal groceries finalFirst, I have to say that I loved seeing all the pictures submitted for our “What’s in Your Primal Kitchen?” contest. It’s always a pleasure to see the happy, healthy, glowing faces of Mark’s Daily Apple readers—not to mention the great looking food sprawled across their kitchens! Once again, many thanks to everyone who participated.

The lucky winner of this random drawing will take home The Holy Grail of PRIMAL KITCHEN Care Packages3 bottles of Avocado Oil, 6 jars of Avocado Oil Mayo2 bags of Primal Fuel, 2 bottles of Greek Vinaigrette, 2 bottles of Honey Mustard Vinaigrette, and 12 Dark Chocolate Almond Bars.

Are you the lucky winner?

First, before I announce who’s taking home that glorious prize, why don’t the rest of you take a look at the gallery of submissions? Each person below went through the fun of compiling their weekly menu all in one place for a stunning snapshot of primal goodness. Do you recognize some things you should be adding to your pantry? Or perhaps you recognize some things you already have in common? There’s nothing like seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes. But you haven’t lived honestly until you’ve seen yourself in someone else’s food—or something like that.

Now, without further delay, let me announce our winner…

Christian H.! Congratulations, my friend. Now you’ll have a whole host of extra grocery items to add to that pile of yours. I hope you have the room…

  1. Congrats to Christian H. It’s always interesting to see what people have in their kitchens or their grocery carts. We don’t have a lot on hand that comes in cans, jars, or boxes. Mostly “scratch” ingredients here: fresh meats, eggs, veggies, fruit, salad items, nuts, etc.

    1. Oh, wow. I’ve never won anything worth winning before. This is awesome!

      When it comes to my “scratch ingredients”, those just aren’t part of my weekly groceries. We have a huge freezer filled with meat and all kinds of offal and odd bits (offal is pretty much concentrated veggies, you know 😉 which is re-filled whenever I can get large quantities of quality meat somewhere without breaking the bank.

      1. Ha! Congratulations! When I was about 19, I came in last in a hula hoop contest (my hoop hit the floor in less than 10 seconds, most likely!) and I won, of all random things, $20 in dairy products from a local dairy. The thing is, I was vegan a the time (because it was the healthy thing to do at the time!). It was a very odd thing to win, and thus far, I think it’s the only thing I’ve won. Good job putting yourself out there :-).

      2. Congrats, Christian!! I see you have two of my staples: quality eggs and olive oil. I seriously can’t get enough olive oil in my life. Hahahah. Avocado oil and coconut oil are great too, of course. I’m just partial to the taste of olive oil.

        Enjoy all the primal goodness coming your way. I’m obsessed with the Greek Vinaigrette. It’s my new favorite thing.

  2. Great photos, but I was hoping to not only see a wonderful spread of food on the table, but standing under it, a piglet, a lamb and some chickens …ha 😉

  3. Very nice indeed. Yet, it’s interesting to see that some still lean heavily towards canned goods (what’s with all the sauces?); not counting off-course coconut oil and by product or canned fish. I guess it takes time to break old habits…

    1. I tend to agree with you, but cooking everything from scratch takes time. People oft en eat according to the time constraints in their lives. Still, it’s possible to be Paleo and still miss the whole idea of really being Paleo.

      Regarding coconut oil, I brush the dog’s teeth with it. She loves it. For me, not so much. There’s something in it (possibly the lauric acid) that doesn’t agree with me. We prefer rendered lard or bacon fat, EVOO, and butter.
