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:
Rational Jenn presents Paleo: It's What's For Dinner posted at Rational Jenn, saying, "We made (and are still making) the switch to paleo eating by making small incremental changes over time, starting with relatively easy changes. It's taken a while, but we've been successful!"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'll receive instructions and reminders via that list.

I did them at 131F for about an hour & a half. In the meantime, I got going on slowly reducing beef marrow bone stock with red wine and at the end, thickened a bit with a a potato starch roux. This demi-glace came out perfectly -- perhaps my best ever -- with just the right amount of concentrated sweetness from the wine."
