The Paleo Rodeo #095

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:
Tony Federico presents Caveman Cuisine: Roasted Beef Ribs posted at FED - Fitness in an Evolutionary Direction, saying, "Strategies for cooking the perfect piece of meat and a delicious recipe too!"

Ruth Almon presents Does Your Bathroom Stink? Don’t Buy Air Freshener. Change Your Diet posted at Ruth's Real Food, saying, "Do you reach for air freshener when things get odorous in the bathroom? That just (sorta) covers up the problem, rather than getting to the heart of the matter - fixing your diet."

Kris presents Keep It Simple, Stupid - Healthy Living Summed up in One Sentence posted at Kris Health Blog, saying, "In this article I do my best to compress all my health advice into a single sentence, short enough to fit in a tweet."

Suz Robinson presents Chicken Stock posted at The Paleo Network, saying, "Homemade Stock doesn't compare to shop-bought versions"

Melissa "Melicious" Joulwan presents Giveaway: US Wellness Meats & Well Fed posted at theclothesmakethegirl, saying, "I teamed up with US Wellness Meats to give away a $100 gift certificate and a signed copy of Well Fed. Entry deadline is midnight Friday 1/13."

Holly presents 6 Strategies To Make Fitness Fun posted at Holly Would If She Could, saying, "The combination of Paleo with a great fitness program is like the combination of dark chocolate + almond butter. :)"

Meghan Little presents Paleo Brownies posted at Paleo Effect, saying, "Our paleo chocolate brownies are moist, grain-free and dairy-free. None of that dry crumbly stuff! Try them with one of our Ice Cream recipes!"

Neely Quinn presents Set Realistic Goals. Win Stuff. posted at Paleo Plan.

Nell Stephenson presents Omega 3 Enriched Eggs - Are They Paleo, and Are They Healthy? posted at Paleoista.

Ute presents What to expect... when you go paleo! posted at GROKette's Primal Musings

Melissa Fritcher presents Detox, Healing Crisis, i.e. WTF!? posted at Less of Mimi, saying, "Detoxing is hard & most people experience some degree of feeling worse before getting better. This week, I posted about my experiences with healing crises."

Megh presents Is It Yoga? Or Yoga Plus Veganism? posted at Yolks, Kefir, and Gristle, saying, "A reasonable question..."

Marc presents Sweet Potato Shrimp Bisque posted at Feel Good Eating, saying, "Delicious and filling...it's soup season."

Cavegirl Kate presents Paleo Buffalo Butternut Squash Lasagna posted at Northwest Cavegirls, saying, "We have always been big lasagna fans in our household. With the caveman hubby and the cave kids to feed, I made it my mission to create a paleo version of one of our favorites. It will be one of yours, too!"

Angie presents Beef and Cabbage Crockpot Stew posted at Angie's Suburban Oasis, saying, "There's nothing better on a cold day than a big bowl of stew. It's especially good if it's ready to eat when you arrive home in the evening having cooked all day in he slow cooker. This stew is a hearty mix of beef, cabbage, carrots and fragrant spices. It will warm you from the inside out!"

Jedha presents What is the paleo diet and lifestyle really about? posted at Paleo Diet Blog.

Vanessa presents The Spice of a Healthy Life posted at Healthy Living How To, saying, "The most common herbs and spices, often added to our favorite dishes for flavor, also have considerable medicinal use. It is likely, these spices and herbs were originally added to foods for this very reason. Most herbal spices aid in digestion as well as prevent and relieve gas. Spices can be used to treat problems from headaches to infection. The next time something ails you, before going to your medicine cabinet, why not give one of these remedies a try."

Eddy presents Furniture Disease posted at Health Freak Revolution, saying, "Do you have it?"

Joe Lindley presents Statin Drug Study Reveals 48% Increased Risk of Diabetes for Women, Lipitor posted at Stop Craving Sugar with a Low Carb Diet Plan or Paleo Diet Plan, saying, "Older women using Statin Drugs like Lipitor may be at a 48% higher risk for becoming Type 2 Diabetics. This result was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine and reported by Medpage Today, January 9, 2012. The study didn’t specifically prove that statins cause Diabetes but rather proved that either the use of statins causes Diabetes or that statin use is somehow related to the incidence of Diabetes. Future studies will be needed to prove any cause/effect relationships."

Paul Jaminet presents Around the Web: Epiphany Sunday Edition posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "Our weekly round-up features music by IZ, video of the South Pacific, and links to fun and informative pieces from around the Paleosphere."

Scott Lee presents IGF-1 and Animal Protein? Does Eating Meat Cause Cancer? posted at Scott Free Thinking.
