The Paleo Rodeo #060

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:
Tony Federico presents Caveman, Caveman, How Does Your Garden Grow posted at FED - Fitness in an Evolutionary Direction, saying, "I may have sent in another post previously, but the idea is to feature your BEST post right? Let me know if this is uncouth however :)"

Benjamin Skipper presents Chocolate Review: Green & Black's 37% Milk with Whole Almonds posted at Musing Aloud, saying, "I didn't know milk chocolate could be this tasty. This is the first in my series of experiments to see whether I'd like to review something other than dark chocolate, as I've noticed that less cocoa/cacao does not necessary mean an increase of sugar or objectionable ingredients.

On this start: Milky, sticky, fatty goodness."

Rafael presents Margarine is good for you. Really? posted at Optimal Health Source.

Peggy Emch presents How Baby Slings Shaped Humanity posted at The Primal Parent, saying, "How is it that humans can get away with birthing such high maintenance babies? The answer is the baby sling."

Todd Dosenberry presents Recipe: Cocodamia Nut Blueberry Smoothie posted at Toad's Primal Journey, saying, "Macadamia nuts, Coconut and Blueberries are a few of the most beloved foods in the primal/paleo community. And for good reason. They are incredibly tasty and highly nutritious. So, why not throw them together in a blender to make a smoothie? I did just that and was extremely successful."

Melissa "Melicious" Joulwan presents Paleo Pad Thai posted at theclothesmakethegirl, saying, "Creamy, spicy, loaded with veggies, FOUR kinds of fat, and protein... this is comfort food you can feel great about eating."

Dustin Sharp presents Some Numbers After Two Years on the Paleo Diet posted at Paleo Vélo.

Amy Kubal presents "Degrees" of Health, Nutrition and Training posted at Fuel As Rx, saying, "Evolution is a learning process - NEVER stop working on your education."

Laurie Donaldson presents Hasta La Vista Pasta! posted at Food for Primal Thought, saying, "A review of a great paleo alternative to traditional lasagne."

J. Stanton presents Why Snack Food Is Addictive: The Grand Unified Theory of Snack Appeal posted at GNOLLS.ORG, saying, "Why is snack food so uniquely addicting? Why can we demolish entire tubes of Pringles, boxes of donuts, trays of chocolates, and bags of goldfish crackers, when we would never finish the same number of calories in the form of meat and vegetables?"

Julianne Taylor presents Omega 6 and 3 in nuts, oils, meat and fish. Tools to get it right. posted at Julianne's Paleo & Zone Nutrition Blog, saying, "Many of us know the importance of cutting down Omega 6 and increasing Omega 3, but in my observation many paleo people eat such things as handfuls of almonds - not knowing that just 60 grams gives all the omega 6 you need for the day. Or they take large amounts of fish oil - more may not be better. Here are some guidelines and tools to get it right."
