Have you noticed that the number of companies selling Primal-friendly products online has drastically increased in recent years? I take that to be a good thing. While a constant refrain on Mark’s Daily Apple is to eat local, eat fresh, and shop at farmers markets, and while I maintain that this is the most reliable way to get the best, most nutritious food, it’s not in the cards for everyone, nor are “local” options always enough. After all, what’s a person to do in the dead of a Minnesota winter for local grass-fed beef? How am I supposed to get local coconut oil, living in Los Angeles, when coconuts don’t grow here? Just because a food isn’t local doesn’t preclude its importance – or even necessity – in a Primal lifestyle, so thank goodness these online retailers exist. But I’ve found myself feeling a little overwhelmed with all the options. Who should I trust as my source of Primal foods that I can’t get locally? Who is the preferred online vendor of grass-fed beef jerky or organic coconut oil? I found myself wishing there was a reliable guide to online retailers selling Primal-friendly products. Since one didn’t exist, I took it upon myself to create it, and today I’m giving it away to all Mark’s Daily Apple newsletter subscribers for free.
For this eBook, the Worker Bees and I have done the hard work of vetting Primal-friendly retailers. In it you’ll find our top picks for meat, seafood, other grocery items (think jerky, coconut oil, olive oil, chocolate, nuts and the like), and fitness equipment. We also provide our favorite offerings from each of these companies, and include useful shopping tips throughout. I hope you find it useful.
Here are a couple snapshots of pages from the eBook:

In the three years that Primal Fuel has been available, thousands of people have tried it, and if the daily emails I receive from happy customers are any indication, nearly everyone absolutely loves it. Some prefer the delicious Vanilla Coconut Cream variety, others the decadent Chocolate Coconut. If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll get your choice.
