The Paleo Rodeo #105


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:
Charissa Vercellone presents 5 Questions with "Paleo Pals" author, Sarah Fragoso posted at Balanced Bites, saying, "Sarah is the National Bestselling author of Everyday Paleo, a trainer at NorCal Strength & Conditioning, and a mom to three boys. I had a chance to catch up with her to chat about her new book, Paleo Pals: Jimmy and the Carrot Rocket Ship."

I have posted 7 different articles on this site covering Dr. Lustig's interviews and presentations on the toxicity of sugar because his arguments are both sound and authoritative. He is adamant that we need to wake up and do something major to reduce our sugar consumption."

Laurie Donaldson presents Ribs and Smoky Paprika Bok Choy posted at Food for Primal Thought, saying, "I took a little break in March, but I am back with a new twist on bok choy."

If I can make a ""Treat"" that the kids love to eat, but contains protein, vitamins and such without added sugar, then I wouldn't mind if they had a couple for breakfast, or had one in their school lunch bag or had one for an after school snack. Using ingredients I had on hand, I constructed my version of the Anytime Cookie and now plan serve them to my kids Every day!"
