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:
Rafael B., PhD. presents This is not food..... posted at Eat Better, saying, "Once a week I will be posting about certain 'food" that certainly is NOT a "real food". Why Am I going to do this: First, because each time I see one of these I say : this is not food....., and second because I want to raise awareness about this so called "foods" that are highly addictive, highly palatable and unhealthy. Here's my first post."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo! We love new members!
