Welcome to the second -- and even larger! -- edition of The Paleo Rodeo!
The Paleo Rodeo is a weekly blog carnival featuring the best paleo-related posts by members of the PaleoBloggers e-mail list. The past editions are collected on this page.
What is "paleo"? As I say in Modern Paleo Principles:
A "paleo" approach to health uses the evolutionary history of homo sapiens, plus the best of modern science, as a broad framework for guiding daily choices about diet, fitness, medicine, and supplementation. The core of paleo is the diet: it eschews grains, sugars, and modern vegetable oils in favor of high-quality meat, fish, eggs, and vegetables.The purpose of The Paleo Rodeo is to highlight some of the best blogging of the ever-growing paleosphere. As always, you'll likely find some new paleo bloggers that you'll want to read regularly!

Diana Hsieh presents What I Eat posted at Modern Paleo, saying, "I wrote this post just a few months after starting a paleo-type diet. While some of the particulars about my eating habits have changed, I still agree with almost all of my advice! Plus, lots of people have found its detailed description of my breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners helpful as they embark on a paleo diet."
Nicole Markee presents Paleolithic Diets and Fruit posted at Astrogirl, saying, "I wrote a lot this week - huge volume for me!"
Richard Nikoley presents School Lunch #Foodrevolution in Full Swing (but keep an eye on counter-revolutionaries) posted at Free The Animal, saying, "Sometimes American "Food Culture" -- if you could even call it that -- needs a good spanking. Aside from the issues over public funding and government control of school lunches it is nonetheless appalling what children are being served to eat. It amounts to child abuse on a massive, systemic scale."
Paleotron presents Grassfed Gorgonzola Burgers on Portabella Mushrooms and Mashed Cauliflower posted at Paleotron, saying, "I'm trying to come up with interesting but affordable Paleo recipes that work within the 80/20 framework agreed upon by so many others in this community. Here is my first blog post containing a recipe. It's simple enough, but I hope you give it a try."
Melissa McEwen presents There's A Pill For That I: Taurine posted at Hunt Gather Love, saying, "The importance of carninutrients and superiority of meat as food!"
Laurie Donaldson presents Avgolemono Soup - Winter and Spring in a Bowl posted at Food for Primal Thought.
Jeff Pickett presents Why Planning is Primal posted at Primal Chat, saying, "Driving anywhere the first time requires a map. It requires a plan. The beauty of a primal/paleo lifestyle is its intuitiveness. To get to that point, plans also have to be laid out. In short time, your map to Better Health will be a memory to be applied for the rest of your life and your instincts will take you the rest of the way."
I hope to see The Paleo Rodeo grow even more in the future. If you blog on paleo-related matters and you'd like to submit your posts to the carnival, please subscribe to the PaleoBloggers e-mail list. You'll receive instructions and reminders via that list.
