The Paleo Rodeo #089

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:
Vanessa presents The Bitter Truth About Sweet Drinks posted at Healthy Living How To, saying, "A new report by the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at Yale, called Sugary Drink F.A.C.T.S. (Food Advertising to Children and Teens Score), unveiled how much of an influence sugary drinks play in the nutrition of today's youth."

Steffi presents Super easy Paleo Icecreme posted at A german cavegirl, saying, "Although its not summer anymore, I still love to eat icecreame every now and then. And this one is so easy to make!"

Tony Federico presents Practice "Preemptive Fitness" to Beat the Holiday Bulge posted at FED - Fitness in an Evolutionary Direction, saying, "Why wait till it's too late? This year, take Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years head on by launching a preemptive fitness plan!"

Julianne Taylor presents Resisting sweets harder for obese when blood sugar drops posted at Julianne's Paleo & Zone Nutrition Blog, saying, "Those who are obese have a greater desire for, and more difficulty resisting sweet high calorie foods than a lean person when blood sugar drops, even just a little. And when cortisol kicks in the effect is enhanced."

Ruth Almon presents Can Apple Cider Vinegar Treat Your GERD? posted at Ruth's Real Food, saying, "Acid reflux, a.k.a. GERD is a highly unpleasant complaint to live with. If only there were some simple, inexpensive cure that works for most people. Oh wait! There is!!"

Kris presents Is Marijuana Addictive? The Facts on Marijuana Addiction posted at Kris Health Blog, saying, "Is marijuana addictive? This question is answered in detail in this article, and all the details are based on actual scientific studies in humans."

mark owen-ward presents how not to be one of the 24%… posted at new habit.

Meghan Little presents Oven Roasted Turkey posted at Paleo Effect, saying, "Our Turkey recipes is great for anytime, but especially during the holidays! Goes great with our other sides and desserts including Paleo Stuffing and Pecan Pie!"

Nell Stephenson presents Christmas Time Is Coming! posted at TrainWithNellie.

Tim Huntley presents Do You Have Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms? posted at My Athletic Life, saying, "I was nearly vitamin D deficient, even with supplementation."

Eddy presents Living Longer, Living Happier, and Retirement posted at Health Freak Revolution, saying, "Ageing in style, living life now, and deciding what you are actually working for in the future."

Dr. John presents John Michael: Getting Back on Paleo posted at Paleoterran, saying, "How to get back on Paleo if you fall off."

Peggy Emch presents Cholesterol Testing For Kids posted at The Primal Parent, saying, "Rather than advocate a junk food-free diet, recommendations are now pointing towards cholesterol testing for kids as young as age 9. As if that is going to "prevent" heart disease! It will just serve to tell people at a younger age what they're headed for and get them on drugs even earlier."

Riki Shore presents Roasted Spiced Cauliflower posted at Three Squares, saying, "Cumin and coriander bring warmth to this roasted cauliflower dish that's a snap to make. Red wine vinegar gives it an unexpected acidic kick."

Stacy Toth presents Philly Shroom Burger posted at Paleo Parents, saying, "Can you recreate a cheesesteak sub without the cheese or the sub? You can if you make a Philly Shroom Burger!"

Laurie Donaldson presents Beauty and the Beast posted at Food for Primal Thought, saying, "Sick of turkey? How about a couple of primal pork dishes?"

Primal Kitchen's Family Grokumentarian presents New Series Coming This Week: The Real Food Advent Calendar, a Healthy Alternative posted at Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary, saying, "A few weeks ago, I bought a "fill your own" advent calendar at IKEA. I like the idea of knowing exactly what ingredients have gone into my daughter's calendar treats, so I am going have a daily post through Christmas on the calendar's compartments' contents."

Amy Kubal presents CRAZY Cravings: How do cookies, pizza, etc. know your name?? posted at Robb Wolf, saying, "Find out why you crave the stuff that's off limits most of the time."

Megh presents Kicking My 2-per-Day Nexium Habit posted at Yolks, Kefir, and Gristle, saying, "How I cured my GERD with diet and supplementation."

Megh presents Being Thankful for Not Flipping Out posted at Yolks, Kefir, and Gristle, saying, "My wonderful, chaotic, stressful, non-breakdown Thanksgiving..."

Joe Lindley presents Driving Under the Influence of Sugar, Asleep at the Wheel, blood glucose posted at Stop Craving Sugar with a Low Carb Diet Plan or Paleo Diet Plan, saying, "A surprising benefit I’ve discovered with the low carb diet is how it helps me when I’m driving my car. Before I started on my low carb diet I really struggled on long road trips. I tired easily, yawned almost constantly, and struggled to keep awake while driving long distances. Even coffee didn’t help. What I was doing, without realizing it, was eating sweets and sugary snacks, which after an hour or so after eating them, put me into sugar low situations."

Beth Mazur presents One down, one to go posted at Weight Maven, saying, "Martin Berkhan's cheat day strategies helped this paleo/PHD dieter cruise thru Thanksgiving!"

Paul Jaminet presents Fermented Mixed Vegetables posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "We've fallen in love with fermented vegetables lately. Here's how we're making them."
