    1. Hardest thing I’ve found with being primal is discussing it with others!

  1. Pathetic Non-Primal Prying into Persistent Primal Parenting

    or

    Getting Grandma to Grudgingly Give Grok a little Gredit (that’s Credit) 😉

    1. .. crop hunting, shoplifting, free coffee and social assistance

    1. +1

      I’m in Chicago this weekend so it seems like a fantastic idea! And I’m leaning towards moving to Austin in october!

  2. As a Physical education teacher I think it would be great if you talk about Primal fitness for kids as a program in school.

  3. Depression, Anxiety, and other Mental Illnesses… How do we deal with them primall?

  4. A Crock Pot Contest!
    Reader created recipes (perfect for fall weather).

    1. YES! I second that. I am always on the hunt for crockpot recipes- so nice when the whole family is gone all day!

    1. Bone broth with two crushed cloves garlic, wakame and a forkful of miso stirred in.
      Followed a bit later by lemon, garlic, ginger and 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne in hot water, honey to taste if you’re a bit of a wuss then early to bed.
      Wake up feeling a million bucks.
      Hasn’t failed me in five years, not even once.
      Eat as usual and repeat if necessary.

  5. Special Diets: Primal eating with other dietary restrictions (such as renal diet, etc.)

    Complimentary Colors: How/Whether various antioxidants work together

    Where to Hunt and Gather: (Reader-submitted?) Profiles of the Most Primal-Friendly Restaurants

    1. I… uhhh… like to slaughter stuff. Only for nourishment or if they deserve it.[blush, to look polite]

  6. How to hit the hay early (when your significant other won’t turn off the tv/lights)!

  7. #number# ways you may be inadvertently sabotaging your Primal lifestyle

    1. Yeah like reading MDA comments all the time…
      Love you Mark & Carrie! : )

  8. Make the Mooo-ve (From Cow’s Milk to Sheep): Exploring Novel Dairy Sources

      1. Be charitable and please a permanent couch potato? Yeah.. something else I’m guilty of. She got me drunk and I was desperate so it was a fair trade.

  9. Adrenal Glands. The affect of coffee, alcohol and/or even ejaculation has on Adrenals. Theory is that transformative breakthrus won’t occur without healthy Adrenals.

    1. I can assure you this: if a raccoon is in a tree and you climb after it, it will probably climb out along a branch hoping you won’t follow. You can then shake this branch, causing it to fall out of the tree. Raccoons are tough though so it might able to run away before you climb back down.
      And possums can be easily stomped to death. Well, it might take quite a few stomps, but eventually the skull will break. After that they can be kicked around like a football.
      I really should have eaten that possum.. and it really shouldn’t have bitten me when I didn’t do anything threatening. Stupid hostile varmints.

      1. I once stomped a squirrel’s head in on the street in front of a bunch of strangers. The first stomp shattered its skull and the second one kind of flattened its whole head. I had shoes on so it wasn’t that much of a.. mean feet.
        It was lying there mangled with its tail twitching, I suppose hit by a car, maybe it fell out of a tree onto the road.
        that was just a couple days after holding someone’s head and staring into his eyes with a caring expression on my face as he faded, after his girlfriend stabbed him near the heart, partially over a fight over a bottle of alcohol, after I encouraged her to pour me a bunch of that alcohol… it feels good to get that out.

        1. I might sound like a pathological liar but I tell the truth here. Maybe with a bit of estimation and generalization. My semantics might not be spot on but I don’t bullshit.

  10. Grok in the Wild: How to eat primal for extended backcountry trips

    1. If smoking is as bad as sitting, can I blaze while standing?

    1. The best one yet. Absolutely genius. If mark does not tackle this one in 2012 or early 2013 then you can bet that I will!

    1. I really want this one! Can we finally dispel the myth that people put razors in apples?

      1. Last year I had some candy, but also had pencils, erasers, silly bands, stickers and temp tattoos. I’d say 75% of the kids went for the toys, esp the silly bands! The pencils were probably the least popular, tho.

    1. You can freeze them, it kills the bacteria that cause odors 🙂

    2. I just throw mine in the washer and dryer, they come out perfectly un-stanky!

  11. I am curious to know whether there is an validity to Earthing. I sounds cool but very hokey yet I have become much more open minded these days. You have a great talent for distilling the truth of things to the extent humanly possible.

  12. The Primal Business Traveller: How to Stay Primal on the Road, in the Air, at Meetings, and in Hotels

  13. How to eat food
    (Basically, for various fruits, vegetables, meats, when should you peel or skin, when should avoid the seeds, pits, ligaments, bone, etc, & why)

  14. Primal Babies: when rice cereal doesn’t come first…or ever!

  15. “Just Hanging Out” – I’ve been messing around with a new pair of gravity boots and I would love to hear what your thoughts are on the ancient practice of Inversion therapy.

  16. The evolution from Grok to today: How and when grains entered our diets.

    Would be interesting if it included comments on the biblical references to bread.

    I am from Germany, if i should win, send the stuff please to “The good Badger”, he will surely appriciate it.

  18. F.U.D.: Primal confidence in a modern world

    Helping lead a SAD horse to primal water

    The primal need for music

    Yin and Yang: Working as a geek, but living as a Grok

    Wide open: How to remove the “rev limiters” from your life

    1. I would read any and all of these. Even F.U.D. What’s FUD?

      1. FUD = Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. I didn’t know either and went to all-acronyms.com. There were 20 definitions. This one, in various formats, was listed 6 times, making it the most common, and it fits with the title listed here.

  19. Primal life in the military (especially while deployed). I am in the Marine Corps and currently deployed. I have been primal for almost a year. I find it difficult to do eat right while deployed. Our chow halls serve mostly good food but low quality and cooked in all the wrong things. I give up when we have to eat MRE’s because there is hardly anything good in those except tuna. The physical aspect of this life matches pretty close…its the food that is the problem.

    1. ^This- I’m sure there are plenty of paleo men/women deployed and at the mercy of what’s served, that would glean some quality info from a MD post.

      Brad’s out of the country but can’t we hook this guy up with some primal snacks while deployed?

  20. Living Primal over 70
    Heart Heathly Primal Living
    Natter about Nattokinase

    The prospect of never eating cake again

    Willpower of grok

  24. Primal Poops: What Goes On With Our Digestive Systems When Going Primal (i.e.: constipation, increased frequency, etc. and what it means)

    1. Sure would like to know how to treat those things w/o pepto or miralax!

  25. Am in the UK but boy, do those look good! Good luck to everyone entering.

  26. Primal Aging: How PrimalBlueprint enhances the ‘senior’ experience.

  27. Tips on Living Primal without Breaking the Bank

    Primal Portioning for the Grok-ess

    Primal Planning: How to plan your Primal schedule for success!

  28. How to be primal when you also have to be on prescription meds

  29. Primal Beauty: Keys to Primal Skin and Body Care

    I would be interested in seeing a post on the best self-care routines for skin, hair, etc. that don’t involve using harsh chemicals! For example, I just recently learned about oil cleansing and it has changed my skin for the better only after just a few treatments!

  30. Primal Eating as a Family: How to bring your children over from the dark side

  31. I had just opened a PrimalPac when I saw this contest. I love them. They are my go-to snack when I am out of the house. I used PrimalPacs on my trip to a vegetarian retreat in Oregon this summer (contraband!). Now I need to think of a great subject title for MDA.

  32. The Primal Passport: How to eat Primal in (foreign country).

    The idea would be to highlight the various kinds of foods and dishes that other cultures/countries/cuisines are famous for, that are naturally Primal or could be Primal with few adjustments.

    1. You know, I’m betting there are enough international readers here on MDA that this would make a great series of guest-posts!

    2. Love this idea! As a world traveler, I would love to know what Primal eats one could find in countries that are known for their high-carb cuisines (e.g. Italy, China, Japan, Thailand, India)

    3. This would be a great Primal Contest (with a prize that could be sent internationally)!!

  33. So many good topics here.

    Ideas for talking to my teenage/young adult children about the benefits of Primal lifestyle

  34. Birth Control and the Primal Lifestyle (a discussion of different birth control methods and their effects on the body, and what is the most/least primal)

  35. How about:

    I am primal.

    When I feel like (specifiy way)

    I eat more/less of

    to restore myself to vibrant health.

    In other words how do I balance myself by tweaking my primal diet and other habits.

    We could and should make this into a pamphlet or book.

    John

  36. Making a Primal Holiday (user recipes for primal holiday meals)

  37. Primal is a Journey ~ Not a Destination: Just as you vary your workout routines to avoid muscle memory, increase reps & difficulty, you should add variety to your Primal diet.

    something like that 🙂

  38. Nudging to Nourishment
    -Basically 3 to 5 steps/ideas (most bang for your buck) of how to bait and hook someone into going primal =)
    My version of this is typically telling someone to try cutting all grains for a week or cutting all sugar for a week.

    Grok on ________
    -A series of articles on how the body responds to different food/drink. I think women’s health (or some other womens fitness mag my wife reads) has a similar concept telling what happens to your body 30 seconds in, 5 min, 30 min, etc

  39. Again not eligible, but here’s one I really want to see:

    “Primal/Paleo: Fad vs Fiction!”

    There are a lot of variations on the paleo theme at the moment and ‘everybody’ is trying to get in on the act with some twist on the basic paleo diet. What’s real and what’s hogwash? (It may not be good to be scathing about somebody else at this stage, seeing as the community is very small and everybody knows everybody else [even though that doesn’t stop some people], but there are a few extreme ideas, e.g. cooking temperature and speed for meat)

    1. Please please yes! It does seem like a lot of people are claiming that paleo can mean whatever you want it to- and while I appreciate the sentiment of wanting to appeal to everyone I also think it is getting harder to sift through to find the ideal. Not having the time or willpower or money to stick to it 100 percent is something nobody should have to apologize for- but it would be REALLY nice to know what paleo/primal means anymore since everyone is saying different things right now. This would be a fantastic and timely article!

  40. Taste the Rainbow (but w/o the sugar rush): Why are fruits and vegetables different colors, and what do the colors mean, and why are we attracted to them?

  41. With the elections on the horizon, how about something relative to preserving our ability to eat as we please? Raw dairy, GMO labeling, etc. Not to start a political debate (plenty of those around this time of year), but some of what I see worries me. In 30 years (the time the charts show to be my expiration date), will I still be able to find grass-fed beef?

  42. Turning your Primal passion in to your Primal paycheck… tips on starting your own business/career.

    Sorry if that means more competition for Mark, but I see so many who post that really have something special!

  43. “Is there a Primal Doctor in the house?”

    Subheading: The need for a fully trained and qualified Primal GP

  44. “The _____ [insert any popular ethnic cuisine…Korean, Mexican, Chinese, etc]Primal Kitchen”

    Obviously, it’d be nearly impossible to review the entire pantheon of a specific culture’s cuisine, but maybe the post could review: common non-primal ingredients to consider, primal ingredients that are used, suggestions on where to procure, good online resources for recipes, etc etc.

  45. The Apple for the Tree: Avoiding Dietary Obsession and Maintaining Focus on a Good Life

  46. What’s your definition of Broke?

    {Some people need to feel “broke” in order to fix themselves (i.e. diet, exercise)and while they feel no blatent symptoms (tired, IBS, infertility) their body is still ailing on SAD. A coworker, with all her fat clumped around her middle, and her teeth are literally falling out, says I feel no reason to change. Clearly we have differnt definitons of “broke.”
    It’s hard to say “more meat for me” and watch others suffer. }

    Ignore or Encourage. Either way, how?

    1. Darrel, I think you’re right. I micro-manage. Wow. Lightbulb! Ok. Shutting down Micromanaging system. Engage system Enjoy! Commencing Now!

  47. Are Genetically Engineered foods making eating Primal a thing of the past?

    I gotta say, GMOs scare the shit out of me.

    1. Ooh, I like this one! My brother is Type 1, and sadly when he was diagnosed (at 2 years old) is when my family really started eating a lot more processed foods since it was so much easier to anticipate how his BS would react.

    Plants, Herbs, and other natural remedies that empowered Grok to fight another day!

  63. I like the “Primal Pacs” informative section on “Grass Finished” food items:

    “Lower Fat: Grass finished beef is typically lower in fat than normally commercially raised grain fed animals….50% less saturated fat…this results in a healthier product for your consumption.”

    Really? Similar contention from Egglands Best Eggs with 25% less saturated fat due to quality feed.

  167. I think a series on Primal ways to deal with currently common health problems would be great. I know that the Primal lifestyle overall helps deal with most of them (cholesterol, heart disease, etc) but having posts for specific issues could be great.

    Something like…Primal Remedies: -insert ailment here-

    Possible ailments could include mental illnesses (depression, etc), cancer, heart disease, autoimmune diseases; pretty much any ailment that people might be looking to alleviate specifically and would like to concentrate on over and above just living Primally.

I believe I just have to plant the seed of doubt to get them to consider a diet change. So far, I’ve failed. My spouse may never come around. He supports the grass fed meat and diet for me. But he will NOT give up bread and soda pop. So the kids have it as well. I want to convince my kids most of all. They don’t see a lean, athletic woman when they look at me. They see crazy mom.

  230. Hypothyroidism & Primal

    I’ve been eating primal for 2 months. The 80/20 rule has been used! Sleep and exercise still need work but I feel so much better; fog is gone from the brain; I’m no longer hungry every minute of every day. But I haven’t lost an ounce. Could synthroid be a factor?

    1. Just to give my input, if you’re really looking to lose weight, I recommend going as close to 100% as you can manage and not be in the 80/20 mindset.

  247. Introducing: The Primal Health Search Engine. Kind of like a web MD, but for the results of primal living/eating on various medical conditions. Certain topics such as hypertension are pretty easy to search for on your site, but there isn’t a lot of information out there for lesser-known topics. It would be neat to be able to search for a disease/condition and to find a list of, say, any applicable research articles, links to forum threads on the topic or primal journals on the topic, etc. It might help bring together individuals with similar health concerns and help those that are wondering about specifics (beyond the primal basics) that would work for their conditions.
