The Paleo Rodeo #004

By Diana Hsieh

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 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!

Here is this week's edition:
Mark Sisson presents When Science Trumps Grok posted at Mark's Daily Apple.

Kelly Elmore presents Breastfeeding and the Paleo Child posted at Reepicheep's Coracle, saying, "Why breastfeeding and the paleo lifestyle go hand in hand."

Laurie Donaldson presents Variation on a Theme posted at Food for Primal Thought.

Nell Stephenson presents Grains- Don't Do It! posted at TrainWithNellie.

Paleotron presents Beef Bourguignon with Spaghetti Squash posted at Paleotron, saying, "This week I made the quintessential French dish: beef bourguignon and served it over spaghetti squash. It's a little more challenging than a lot of my recipes, but it has a great, classic French flavor."

Kristy A. presents Adventures with Grass-Fed Beef Part I posted at Feasting on Fitness, saying, "Read about why grass-fed beef is DEFINITELY worth the price and gain a new recipe for your repertoire: Roast Beast: Dry-Roasted Grass-fed Sirloin. Simple and delicious!"

Shantel presents Queen of My Castle posted at Urban Cave Girl, saying, "Just my weekly vlog I do. Usually on Tuesdays. Random chatter about my paleo/primal progress and a bood review on 'the unhealthy truth.'"

Nicole Markee - Astrogirl presents What's Wrong with Polyunsaturated Fats? posted at Astrogirl, saying, "Why I've stopped taking fish oil and cut way back on nuts and seeds."

Lucky Martinez presents Top ten reasons NOT to camp with my paleo mom posted at Paleo Princess, saying, "I just finished a week of living (completely! even made my own outfit out of an elk skin... from an elk I killed myself!) off the land... with my two teenagers. My oldest son, 15, wrote a funny Top Ten list of reasons you shouldn't go camping with your Paleo Mom!"

Jeff Pickett presents Start Spreadin' the News! posted at Primal Chat, saying, "This is a nice media piece on the Primal/Paleo lifestyle with quotes from both Loren Cordain and Mark Sisson."

Richard Nikoley presents Metabolism & Digestion: A Key to Weight Loss & Health, Part II posted at Free The Animal, saying, "The second post in my series calling into question the prudence of the High Everything Diet 'HED' being promoted out there and its willy-nilly fretting with out-of-context attempts to raise body temperature by overeating ('everything') in some fools journey to 'cure your metabolism.'"

Diana Hsieh presents Speak Out Against the Food Safety Bill posted at Modern Paleo, saying, "The proposed "Food Safety Bill" would impose costly regulatory burdens, particularly on small farmers, without ensuring food safety. If you want to protect your freedom, write your representatives!"
