Grain free granolaPrimal Island – How about some toasted coconut grain-free granola? Primal Island does it right with no oats or other grains in sight, and with organic ingredients. We’re talking Organic Coconut Flakes, Sliced Almonds, Organic Honey, Organic Pecans, Organic Ground Flax Seeds, Pure Vanilla Extract, Organic Hazelnuts, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Almond Extract, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Sesame Seeds, and Organic Nutmeg mixed together into granola goodness.

Winner gets 3 bags of paleo granola. Retail value: $30.

BONUS: Enter coupon code 4ORMORE during checkout to receive a 10% discount on orders of 4 or more bags of Primal Island Granola.

VejibagsVejibag – I’m sure we’d all love to be able to pluck fresh greens from our bountiful garden on demand, or walk to the local market for veggies every day. In reality, most people have to rush over to the market sometime after work, fight crowds, wrestle for the last bag of kale with an older woman with surprisingly strong arms, and buy enough to last the week – because there’s no way we’re gonna make it back anytime soon. That’s a fine solution when you’re buying meat, root vegetables, and other foods that last awhile, but spinach, baby greens, romaine, and other less hearty leafy green vegetables tend to start wilting immediately upon arrival in your fridge. That’s the worst. Nothing worse than some slimy lettuce. The Vejibag is almost magic. You make it a little damp, put just about any vegetable in there – leafy greens, salad makings, broccoli, cabbage, and the list goes on – and the bag will actually make the greens crisper than when they started. An essential tool for any salad fan out there.

Winner gets one Vejibag Family Pack: 2 Vejibags, 4 VejiBIGS, and 2 VejiCHEFs. Retail Value: $159.60.

BONUS: Use MDACHALLENGE at checkout for 20% off your order. Valid 2/11-3/4/15.

eating evolved 1eatingEVOLVED’s mission is handcrafted dark chocolate done right. And boy do they get it right. The whole line is made with organic ingredients and Fair Trade Certified Cacao from the Dominican Republic. All of their products are free of gluten, dairy, soy, and cane sugar (they sweeten with organic maple sugar instead!) – a far cry from the commoditized, sugar-filled milk chocolate candies that line supermarket shelves.

They carefully handcraft Primal Chocolate Bars, Coconut Butter Cups, and Hot Chocolate from their Long Island, NY home base.

They even made an appearance on Good Morning America, with yours truly, last year.

Winner receives a $150 gift certificate to eatingEVOLVED.com.

BONUS: Enter MDAPRIMALCHOC at checkout for 10% off your order.

nikkisNikki’s Coconut Butter – If you’ve been around the paleo block for awhile, you probably know all about Nikki’s. If not and you’re stressing about that beloved jar of peanut butter you just tossed, you’re in for an upgrade. Coconut butter is a spread made from the meat of the coconut much in the same way peanuts are used to make peanut butter.  And just like peanut butter, it can be enjoyed with your favorite fruit, combined into smoothies, blended into coffee, or devoured by the spoonful straight from the jar!

Organic coconuts have a great natural sweetness that makes eating Nikki’s coconut butters feel like eating dessert.  They only use a tiny amount of organic honey or organic maple sugar/syrup in each jar to enhance this natural sweetness, so you can enjoy the amazing health benefits of coconut, without the guilt.  Then, things like nuts, organic cacao powder, and other healthy ingredients are added to create the 5 flavors you see here.

Winner receives a jar of each flavor. Total Value: $104.99.

BONUS: Enter mda2015 at checkout for 10% off any order.

  1. New Primal jerky… am I reading their website shop correctly, $26.95 for two ounces?

    1. There was a couple of excellent previous MDA articles on how to make your own Jerky, which I have used to much success – sure it takes effort, but I view that as part of the whole primal lifestyle – i.e., using your hands and brain to produce your own food

    2. It looks like it’s $26.95 for a 4-pack of jerky. I love their stuff, it’s worth it.

  2. It is for 4-2oz packages which is still only 8oz. Jeryk is expensive 🙁

  3. Pinterest is stating nothing to share? And How do I get the “link” for my post on facebook?

    Appreciate the help

    1. Well I think I figured it out… The Widget is indicating +1 so I’m assuming that I did it correctly….

      For Facebook I right clicked and selected copy link, and for Pinterest I found the PrimalCon by searching for it and when I Pinned it I grabbed that link….

  4. Another contest that requires social media (something Grok certainly didn’t have) *sigh*

  5. Is anyone else having problems with the Rafflecopter widget not loading? I tried it from home where I shouldn’t have any firewall issues but it didn’t work there, and it’s also not working at my job. Anyone having this issue, or know a workaround?

    1. It won’t load on my computer either for some reason, and I use Firefox. But I downloaded Google Chrome and it worked on that, so maybe give it a shot.

      1. Okay,so for the weird of the day: It worked for me in Firefox, but not in Chrome.

        I need more fish oil, I think my brain just gave up.
