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: Endangered Species 70% Orange posted at Musing Aloud, saying, "Aside from mint and coffee, orange is another one of those things I really like paired with my chocolate. The citrus is strong, though I think the balance may be off in comparison to Theo's, but I'm contemplating doing another tasting so as to be just."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!
