Once a month, I’ll feature three recipes that you can choose from. Once you decide on a recipe, cook it, take a photo of it, submit it, and you might win a prize!

How it Works

  • Monthly Themes! Each month, we’ll feature three delicious Nom Nom Paleo recipes that you can choose from. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to choose ONE of the three recipes to cook for your family or pals!
  • Cook and Snap a Photo! After you cook the recipe, snap a tantalizing photo of your Nom Nom Paleo creation! Don’t worry about lighting or the photo quality because we aren’t judging that at all. We just need to verify that you cooked the recipe!
  • Submit Your Entry! Email the photo along with the name of the recipe as the subject line to by 11:59 pm PT on the last day of the month. Only one entry per person, please.
  • We pick a winner! From all the entries submitted via email, we will randomly choose one winner to win a $100 Amazon gift card. The winner will be notified by email within 10 days of the challenge ending.
  • Bonus! Want to showcase your masterpiece to the world? Tag us @NomNomPaleo on your social media posts and use the hashtag #NomNomPaleoCookingChallenge. Your delicious creation could be featured on our platforms, inspiring others to cook Nom Nom Paleo recipes too! Also, if you love the recipe please leave a 5-star rating on the recipe post!
