Welcome to this week's 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 ModernPaleo 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!
Paleotron presents The Price of Paleo posted at Paleotron, saying, "This week, I took a look at the real cost of going paleo in my article 'The Price of Paleo.' I compare average US household food costs and compare them to my own paleo food costs. I use real life statistics to make my point that while paleo may not be the cheapest food option, it may not be as bad as you think."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo! I hope to see this blog carnival grow 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're out and about, and you didn't pack a snack. Your day is immensely busy, and your stress level is high. You could just turn around and forget all your primal eating habits and grab that greasy hamburger because you know it's quick and you know it'll cure your hunger for the next few hours. What do you do in this situation?"
