The Paleo Rodeo #097

By Unknown

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:
Eddy presents TIP: Kill Dessert Cravings with Lemon posted at Health Freak Revolution, saying, "Still get sweet cravings sometimes? It has worked for some, could it work for you?"

Tony Federico presents Caveman Cuisine: Spicy Pig and Plantain Soup posted at FED - Fitness in an Evolutionary Direction, saying, "Make soup so good it will make you want to smack your paleolithic ancestors in three easy steps."

Suz Robinson presents Paleo Interventions posted at The Paleo Network, saying, "When you know a stranger would benefit from a Paleo trial - is it right to intervene?"

Ruth Almon presents Even A Stubborn American Can Learn New Tricks . . . posted at Ruth's Real Food, saying, "This is a fascinating guest post from Jen, a blogger at Real Food Freaks who is married to a Fillipino. She writes about how her attitude to the foods of his traditional culture have shifted over the years."

Nell Stephenson presents From Vegan to Paleo? What? posted at Paleoista.

Eddy presents Knowing What to Avoid is More Important Than What to Consume posted at Health Freak Revolution, saying, "Sometimes we forget that half the point of paleo is about AVOIDING certain things; toxins, artificials and processing as much as eating meat and veg. Do you always spot the misleading products when shopping?"

Sean Booth presents Bone Broth Redux! posted at Old Fashioned Upgrades, saying, "A look back at how easy it is to make mineral rich bone broth in only 2885 minutes!"

Nancy Atwell presents Do You Vary Your Eating Routine? posted at Ancestral Crone.

Hadass Eviatar presents Dr. Terry Wahls - A Prophet for Our Time posted at My Coat of Many Colours.

Kris presents Teenagers, Milk and Advanced Prostate Cancer posted at Kris Health Blog, saying, "A study came out recently about the association between milk consumption in adolescent years, and risk of advanced prostate cancer later in life."

Neely Quinn presents How Much Food Should You Eat? posted at Paleo Plan.

Joe Lindley presents Paula Deen Endorses Victoza for Diabetics and Suggests the Wrong Diet posted at Stop Craving Sugar..., saying, "With all the hoopla online and on national TV about Paula Deen's diagnosis as a Type 2 Diabetic (see yesterday's post on Paula Deen and Anthony Bourdain) I found myself puzzled over the "example" she is setting for the public in terms of medication and diet. She has picked Victoza by Novo Nordisk as the Diabetes medication she now endorses.She waited 3 years to announce her diagnosis, which has caused some to criticize her for promoting high carb and high fat recipes during that time - food choices which are bad for most of us, especially diabetics. In her defense, she says she waited in order to study Type 2 Diabetes so she could make an informed decision on her own health and provide a good example for her fans. When I looked deeper into exactly what she is doing for her own treatment I became concerned."

Jedha presents Paleo Diet Beans And Legumes posted at Paleo Diet Blog.

Meghan Little presents Paleo Bang Bang Shrimp, A Thai Sweet, Fried Seafood Dinner Idea posted at Paleo Effect, saying, "This recipe for Bang Bang Shrimp is sweet and sour with a little baby kicker at the end. beautifully crispy and delicious! Find this and more at or find us on Facebook!"

Peggy Emch presents Homeschooling Isn't For Everyone posted at The Primal Parent, saying, "My experience homeschooling over the last three months. It has been both good and bad, but due to work and other difficulties, I think I'm going to have to take a break."

Arsy presents {lavender + clove} posted at Rubies & Radishes, saying, "A quick and healthy recipe for homemade air freshener."
