The Paleo Rodeo #022

By Diana Hsieh

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:
Marc presents Parents, Food and Flavors posted at Feel Good Eating, saying, "Combining flavors from different cultures."

Benjamin Skipper presents CR: Endangered Species' 70% Cacao with Goldenberry and Lucuma posted at Musing Aloud, saying, "This marks the last of the bars of Endangered Species' Organic Health line of dark chocolates. So far I have been extremely displeased with it, but this one is the exception."

Benjamin Skipper presents CR: Lindt's 85% posted at Musing Aloud, saying, "Due to my inability to get my hands on a bar of Lindt's 90% dark chocolate I have to settle for 85%. Nonetheless, as I originally thought, it has unique characteristics that make it as worthy of having on your shelves as Endangered Species' 88%. (Though my personal preference is for Lindt.)"

Todd Dosenberry presents 5 More Primal & Paleo (Green) Smoothie Recipes posted at Toad's Primal Journey, saying, "I LOVE smoothies and therefore enjoy them just about every day. Every Saturday I publish new primal smoothie recipes that I made during the week. Enjoy these 5 recipes!"

Nell Stephenson presents A Typical 'Night Before Training Meal' posted at TrainWithNellie.

Laurie Donaldson presents Masitas de Puerco - Cuban Pork posted at Food for Primal Thought, saying, "I couldn't quite duplicate the original restaurant version, but this comes pretty close."

Frank Hagan presents Low Carb Age » Cancer, Fructose and Ketogenic Diets posted at Low Carb Age, saying, "A recent study has led some to believe that fructose leads to pancreatic cancer, but alas, that's not what the study said."

Adam Farrah presents Eating for Building Muscle and Eating for Health Used to Be the Same Thing posted at, saying, "A blog post that looks at the diets of some early 20th Century strongmen, their Paleo connections and makes the case for a return to a simple diet for health and strength."

Douglas Robb presents Paleo Cookbook Preview posted at Health Habits, saying, "What do you get when 44 Paleo Bloggers come together to create a totally free Paleo Cookbook? Stay tuned & find out."

Elizabeth presents How I ended up eating like a cavewoman posted at Pounds Away!, saying, "I came to be eat the Paleo/Primal way purely by accident ...."

Paul Jaminet presents What Makes a Supercentenarian? posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "In this post I discuss the dietary practices that seem to be nearly universal among supercentenarians. (It accompanies another post on lifestyle practices of centenarians.)"

Richard Nikoley presents So You Think You Can't Cook? posted at Free The Animal, saying, "I rant a bit on grassfed beef snobbery. Then demonstrate a quick & easy meal using Trader Joe's pre-cooked pot roast. Good in a pinch. Lots of excellent comments on this post already."

Daniel presents Grain Fed Meat ? The Elephant In The Room posted at At Darwin's Table, saying, "This blog is in response to a post presented by Richard Nikoley over at Free the Animal. It is based around the contentious issue of whether or not we should eat grain fed beef on a paleo diet."

Ryan Kavanagh presents Venetian Veal Liver posted at Ryan Kavanagh's /dev/brain, saying, "Venetian veal liver, also known at my place as breakfast two or three times a week, is a quick and tasty way to prepare liver."

Jean-Patrick Millette presents The social aspect of the paleolithic diet and why it's important posted at Primal Journal, saying, "The paleolithic diet is the only diet that can improve your social life."

Kristy A. presents What To Drink Part 2: What's Wrong With Milk? (Part B) posted at Feasting on Fitness, saying, "Back for more about milk! Our second part discusses what to fear with pasteurized milk--and believe me, it's more than you think!"
