The Paleo Rodeo #078

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 of the Rodeo 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:
Peggy Emch presents Shared Custody and Other Family Battles posted at The Primal Parent.

Benjamin Skipper presents Scharffen Berger's 82% posted at Capital Bean, saying, "I love the Scharffen Berger title. Have we here a bar as equally enjoyable as the name?"

Melissa Fritcher presents The Emotional Journey to Wellness posted at Less of Mimi, saying, "Emotional healing is at least as important as physical healing.
