Welcome to this week's edition of The Paleo Rodeo! (It's a bit late because I was hiking in Salida yesterday, and hence somewhat off-grid.)
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.
Here is this week's edition:
Todd Dosenberry presents Twinkies, Oatmeal Cream Pies, Rice Krispie Treats, Candy… Did You Ever Eat This Junk? posted at Toad's Primal Journey, saying, "While camping for the 4th of July weekend I personally did not have the best food choices. I had no say in the grocery shopping which sucked to say the least. Find out what I did to enjoy myself and eat Primally!"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.
Laurie Donaldson presents How Does My Garden Grow? Take a Look! posted at Food for Primal Thought, saying, "Just a little update on my garden which is bouncing back after a prolonged drought."
Stephen(Aegis) presents Exercise Should be Fun. posted at Live Smarter, Not Harder!, saying, "Why torture yourself?"
Benjamin Skipper presents Possets' Scents posted at Musing Aloud, saying, "My thoughts on Possets' naturals line of scents. I have since become disenchanted with artificial, 'chemical' scents, so I thought I'd try a natural oil blend."
Nell Stephenson presents COCONUT YOGURT RECIPE! Thanks to one of my readers... posted at TrainWithNellie.
Douglas Robb presents Omega 6 Fatty Acids ....and the Genetic Obesity Timebomb posted at Health Habits, saying, "The high quantities of Omega 6 fatty acids in our modern "Western" diet is causing the creation of a Genetic Obesity Timebomb. A return to a Paleo style of eating is needed to repair the ratio of Omega 6 : Omega 3 fatty acids and defuse the timebomb. Sounds like a job for Paleo Jack Bauer"
Amy Kubal presents The Performance Edge: Ingredients for Success posted at Fuel As Rx.
Josephine Svendblad presents Papaya Pork Center Rib Roast posted at Nutty Kitchen, saying, "Don't be afraid to cook a huge piece of meat. It saves you money, you can feed many friends and family :-) or just have fabulous left overs."
Frank Hagan presents Diets are Hard posted at Low Carb Age, saying, "'Falling off the wagon' is not a moral failure; it is a biological imperative. You are starving, so it is time to get up, chase down an animal, kill it and eat. Eat until you are sated, eat all you can, and make up for the past days of low calorie intake. That’s how we are built. In designing diets based around the idea of starving the fat off of you, the advocates of this approach are working against at least 200,000 years of human adaptation ..."
Kristy A. presents What To Drink Part 2: What's Wrong with Milk? posted at Feasting on Fitness, saying, "Can you be healthy WITHOUT drinking milk? Let's take a closer look this meal-time staple."
Paul Jaminet presents Lactose Intolerance: Often A Result of 'Silent' Wheat-Derived Bowel Disease posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "This post notes that cereal grain toxicity is a common cause of the inability to digest milk sugars, so lactose intolerant people should give up wheat."
Finally, you can find all of the blogs of the PaleoBloggers on this continuously-updated list:
