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:
Benjamin Skipper presents Chocolate Review: Green & Black's 85% posted at Musing Aloud, saying, "Here's my review of Green & Black's 85% dark chocolate. This is actually the brand that first got me into eating dark chocolate. I had very unpleasant memories of its bitterness since I hadn't adjusted to dark chocolate yet then, but now I can't believe how fantastic this variety is. In fact, it's now one of my top favorites."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.
