Introducing The Primal Blueprint 2017 Day-to-Day Calendar

PrimalCalendar_2017_FPOFront-FNL BlogMy staff and I are having a great time putting the final touches on one of our most unique and interesting publications yet: a Primal Blueprint Day-to-Day calendar with daily tips and inspiration on primal living. Yep, it’s in the familiar five-inch square pad format on a plastic base (lays down or stands up) made famous by Garfield, the Simpsons, and assorted other light-hearted fodder that fills the bookstore tables during the brief holiday desktop calendar season. So if you’re a little tired of cartoon strip fare and want a resource to keep you focused, inspired and enlightened to new primal information in easily digestible daily tidbits, I think you will love this calendar.

The months are themed in alignment with the 10 Primal Blueprint laws and the Primal Connection’s 10 Habits of Highly Successful Hunter-Gatherers. Many of the days are jam-packed with crisp messages about vitamin D health, the Primal Essential Movements, the psychological benefits of play, the hormonal aspects of fat adaptation, the physical and psychological benefits of spending time in nature or limiting use of digital technology, and so forth. These educational offerings are interspersed with inspirational quotes, recipes, and quick de-stressing tips—all honoring the monthly themes to get you into a good reading rhythm and diverse and fresh experience every time you peel back a new page. You can peel off your favorite workout or recipe tips and stick ‘em on the fridge!



Here’s the thing: unlike books, annual calendars sell only during that narrow time window preceding the New Year and then soon become of little interest. Furthermore, the unique print specs require a much longer lead-time from overseas than our USA-printed books. Bottom line: We are doing one production run, very soon, and when they sell out they are gone. Our distributor expects a strong response in the chain and big box stores upon late-fall release, so I’m offering this special opportunity to MDA readers to get first in line and guarantee you receive your calendar fresh off the press (September, 2016). This is a great holiday gift idea for all your primal friends so consider a quantity order and knock out a good chunk of your holiday gift list with a few clicks.

I know it’s a long way from 2017, so we’ve created a special offer to get you to commit now. Just add the coupon code PBCALENDAR17 at checkout to get the offer below.*

  • Order a calendar now and get free shipping and a free copy of The Primal Blueprint 90-Day Journal when your calendar ships in September. That’s a $22.95 retail item for FREE! But if you want the journal, you’ll have to act fast, since this pre-order offer expires next week on April 15th. (Note: Limited to one free copy of the 90-Day Journal per customer, per order, regardless of the number of calendars purchased.)

  • After April 15th, you won’t get the journal. But you can still pre-order a calendar on, and you will be prioritized by date of order. However, there’s still a big chance we will sell out. So if you’re interested, I’d recommend pulling the trigger now!
  • If you plan on giving away a few of these calendars as gifts, you can also take advantage of our 10% quantity discount at checkout.

That’s it, folks! I hope a bunch of you take advantage of the pre-sale offer and enjoy your calendar once you get it. If you have any fun ideas for future calendars, leave a comment below.

  1. Love the idea. If I keep some of these reminders on my fridge like you suggest, maybe it’ll help keep me on track.

  2. In the next edition, there should be a little wise-cracking cartoon version of Mark. Now THAT would be a hoot. In the meantime, this looks cool. 😛

  3. I’ve gotten the whole family on board, so this looks like it’s going to be our new kitchen calendar. Thanks, Mark!

  4. Um, let me just say, that I’m definitely going to try that sample recipe for the curried shrimp! If there are a good deal more recipes like that, I’m game.

  5. At first I thought, “Is this Christmas in April?” Boy are the holidays starting earlier and earlier. But your explanation makes sense, Mark. I’ll grab probably grab two of these babies. One for me, one for my primal cohort.

  6. I LOVED Garfield. Always had a place in my home/on my desk. I also love what Primal has done for me. So I think having some pleasant reminders around the house wouldn’t be such a bad idea. I’d like it now, but time flies. September, and the end of the year, will be here before you know it!

  7. This calendar is going to have to compete with my yearly Yankees calendar. There’s room for both. I’ll be informed whether in the living room or the kitchen. Ha!

  8. Looks like you need to hire a different proofreader. Salt to tate? 😉

    1. Good eye! That was a draft file. The final one is up. Thanks!

  9. Great offer, but what about those of us not in the US?? $32 shipping to the UK 🙁

    1. Agreed – fantastic offer, but total cost to purchase and ship to NZ is nearly NZ$80.00. That’s out of the question I’m afraid 🙁 Better value if you include the free book (that gets free shipping) but that much for just a desk diary? It would be interesting to see if it makes our shops later on in the year …

  10. Do we need to add the journal to the cart also, or will it just magically arrive with the calendar? I’m excited about getting that too, because if it does arrive in September, that’ll be perfect timing for an end of the year n=1.

    1. I just found the coupon code in a separate email: PBCALENDAR17. I haven’t seen it in this post.

    2. Nope. It says in the notes right at the bottom of the post not to add it. 😉

  11. In the shadow of yesterdays post regarding flawed studies, I may suggest taking the primal journal n1, or something similar, one step further. Perhaps this community could collaborate and enter their personal journal data in an online collective data base. I certainly would volunteer my personal data. I believe many of us come here for the truth or at least an unbiased vision towards the truth. Marks knows what makes a flawed study so he should be able to construct a good one. Anybody in?

  12. Phooey. Shipping one calendar to Ontario, Canada is $26. A bit too high a premium for me. I’ll hope to find it in a bookstore here, or maybe on Amazon for less $ to mail to Ontario.

  13. Can someone post that delicious coconut lime Basil and was it scallops recipe. Mine seems to have disappeared and it was delicious with fish scallops or shrimp? I tink it had basil in at the end. i think it was in january.
