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:

Laurie Donaldson presents Sesame Tuna and Spinach Sauteed in Ghee posted at Food for Primal Thought.
Paleotron presents Asparagus and Poblano Cream Sauce over Salmon posted at Paleotron, saying, "More primal than paleo, I used a little cream to put an incredibly delicious sauce together that was great over a fillet of salmon."
Sara Hatch presents Budget Menus for Week Two (and shopping list) posted at Edible, saying, "More ideas for potentially budget Paleo meals!"
Kristy A. presents The Study Everyone Talks About: Part 2: The Ravaging Reviews posted at Feasting on Fitness, saying, "This is the second installment of the series dissecting The China Study. It provides a literature review of the arguments critiquing the popular book, providing food for thought and conversation."
Robert McLeod presents Vitamin D Reduces Premature Births posted at Entropy Production.
Christian W. presents Learning From the Kitavans posted at Modern Paleo, saying, "The Kitavans can teach us much about low-carb and paleo."
Chris Kresser presents Why fish stomps flax as a source of omega-3 posted at The Healthy Skeptic, saying, "New evidence suggests that DHA, and not ALA, is the essential omega-3 fat. Conversion of ALA to DHA is poor in most people, which means flax oil and other plant sources of ALA will not be effective in raising DHA levels."
Josephine Svendblad presents Lomo al Trapo! grass-fed, of course! posted at Nutty Kitchen, saying, "It is traditionally a Colombian dish and is a beautiful large piece of beef tenderloin. Lomo = filet, Trapo = rag or cloth, so Lomo al Trapo = beef tenderloin in cloth!"
Richard Nikoley presents Let's Help Out a Soon-To-Be Ex-Veg*n Go Paleo posted at Free The Animal, saying, "Free the Animal readers, including many ex- vegetarians and vegans, come to the rescue of a long time vegan seeking suggestions on how to introduce Paleo and meat eating into her diet."
Jeff Pickett presents Organic Food Costs Too Much? I'm Not Buying It! posted at Primal Chat, saying, "Organic and grass fed meat costs too much? Really?"
