Welcome to this week's edition of The Paleo Rodeo! (BlogCarnival was down for nearly a whole day this week, so submission to the carnival was somewhat more difficult than usual. However, we managed well enough!)
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:
Paleotron presents 8 Ways To Stay Motivated posted at Paleotron, saying, "Here are 8 tactics I've used to keep myself motivated since the newness and excitement of going paleo began to fade."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.
