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.
Here is this week's edition:
Todd Dosenberry presents 4 Primal Green Smoothie Recipes posted at Toad's Primal Journey, saying, "Do you LOVE smoothies? If yes, then you will LOVE these 4 primal green smoothies. Give one or 2 a shot and let me know how you like it!"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.

Benjamin Skipper presents CR: Endangered Species' 70% with Cocao Nibs, Yacon & Acai posted at Musing Aloud, saying, "While this chocolate is unappealing to me, it may appeal to those that miss their milk chocolates. It has a 70% cocao content and yet tastes MUCH sweeter than that. Unfortunately, all the separate flavors have their individuality muted."
Amy Kubal presents The Heart Stopping, Bone Shattering Truth about Calcium Supplements... posted at Fuel As Rx.
Nell Stephenson presents Reinventing Leftover Chicken - Curry Salad posted at TrainWithNellie.
Girl Gone Primal presents Recipe: Choc-Avocado Mousse, & My Tropical Breakfast Party! posted at Girl Gone Primal, saying, "A new recipe (a primalised version of a sugary favourite) that the paleo world NEEDS to know about! Especially women who 'need' a bit of chocolatey goodness one or twice a month!"
Laurie Donaldson presents Cafe on 26 - Vacation Eats at Bethany Beach posted at Food for Primal Thought, saying, "Not much primal eating going on in my vacation last week, but I did find a great gluten-free restaurant in my travels. As Robb Wolf says, if you can't eat paleo, at least eat gluten-free. You could easily eat primal here as well if you can just resist those GF baked goods."
Julie Sullivan Mayfield presents Recipe time: Stuffed Chicken Breasts posted at BTB's Nutrition and Performance Blog.
Paul Jaminet presents Thyroid: More Evidence That “Normal” is Unhealthy posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "Optimizing thyroid function is one of the easiest ways to improve health, but most people don't do it because they think subnormal thyroid function is "normal." This post discusses what level of TSH is optimal."
Marc presents Truly Simple Meal posted at Feel Good Eating, saying, "Give this super simple recipe a try sometime. I think you will be pleasantly surprised and you'll have something new simple and quick in your arsenal."
Frank Hagan presents New Site: Low Carb Daily posted at Low Carb Age, saying, "Low Carb Daily is a new concept in Low Carb news; an aggregator that previews the most recent stories in the Low Carb / paleo / primal blogosphere. Excepts and links to the original article allow you to click through and read what interests you, on the original author’s site."
Dennis Ryan presents Acorn Squash Pepper Hash posted at Paleo Eats, saying, "A great side dish consisting of acorn squash and poblano peppers."
