Mark's Daily Apple is a highly acclaimed primal living website that I refer to frequently as I aspire to create a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle for me and my family. Mark Sisson, the creator of The Primal Blueprint (or what he explains as "primal living in a modern world"), has created an unmatched resource for beginners and experts alike who are looking to live a healthier and more productive lifestyle. This week he paired up with US Wellness Meats to throw out an Instagram challenge: create a 15 second primal recipe video for the chance to win a whole cow! US Wellness Meats is considered a trustworthy source of pastured beef and other sustainable meat products and is who I order from when I don't have local sources available.
