We're BAAAAACK! 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:

Ruth presents Rethinking Antiperspirant posted at Ruth's Real Food, saying, "Antiperpirants have evolved from a means to an end (stopping us from smelling) to an end in itself. But are the chemicals potentially harmful, and is antiperspirant a necessity for everyone every day?"
Health Freak Eddy presents The Myth of a Varied Diet posted at Health Freak Revolution, saying, "Is this some conventional wisdom that got passed you? How varied does your diet need to be?"
Fatisfied presents Mini Exertions posted at Free Your Fat, saying, "... quick and quirky, easy to recover from yet effective at maintaining and improving lean body mass, strength, and coordination"
Peggy Emch presents How to Make Collagen Rich Bone Broth posted at The Primal Parent, saying, "Bone broth is amazing! It's a shame that Americans have taken to throwing out the bones (and collagen rich skin) and dully feasting on the dry ol' chicken breast. Maybe, just maybe that's why cellulite, wrinkles, and stretch marks plague the majority of American women these days. Well, it's a bit more complicated than that, but the lack of collagen in the diet certainly plays a role. Check out my super simple recipe for health and beauty. It takes me under 10 minutes to prepare."
Kerri presents mexican slaw posted at the functional foodie, saying, "With all this nice weather we've been having in the Northeast, why not try this summery salad? Top it with grilled chicken, steak tips or just serve it straight up!"

Check out a preview and read the reviews!"
Angie presents Honey Carrot Muffins posted at Angie's Suburban Oasis, saying, "Looking for a way to get more veggies into your treats? Try these Honey Carrot muffins!

The Cavegirls presents Roasted Broccoli and Onions with Bacon posted at Northwest Cavegirls, saying, "OMGosh this dish, be it lunch, brunch or a side to accompany meat is delicious.

Beth Mazur presents Robb Wolf on Kruse and divisiveness posted at Weight Maven, saying, "Robb's call for respect and decorum in the paleosphere pre-dates the apparent love-fest at PaleoFX, but it may be worth repeating."
Meghan Little & Angel Torres presents Corned Beef & Cabbage posted at Corned Beef & Cabbage, saying, "Our Corned Beef and Cabbage isn't just for St. Patrick's Day!

Mark presents What I Eat posted at lowcarblearning.com, saying, "If keeping a food journal or pre-planned menus work for you, then go for it. But, for me, I never did that.

Here are the key things I've done to lose the ~65 pounds and maintain that loss successfully (so far, without any major effort)..."

Patty presents Strilaeff posted at Corned Beef - Paleo Style, saying, "I broke all the rules with this St. Patrick's Day meal, but who cares because corned beef isn't very Irish to start with, and apparently, neither was St. Patrick. "
Joe Lindley presents Confronting the Crisis in Nutrition posted at Craving Sugar, saying, "A significant conference occurred last week in which a session was conducted on the Crisis in Nutrition. The conference, conducted by the Office of Research Integrity in Washington DC, was held March 15th, 2012 and included presentations from 3 representatives from our low carb/paleo community.
