The Paleo Rodeo #136

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:
Neely Quinn presents Nutritional Ketosis Experiment Update: I Yield posted at Paleo Plan, saying, "After a paltry 6 days of ketosis, I had to stop..."

Kerri Costa presents Paleo Shrimp Scampi posted at the functional foodie, saying, "Bright and lemony sauce compliments the shrimp so nicely. Perfect on a bed of spaghetti squash. Who needs pasta?!"

Meghan Little & Angel Ayala Torres presents Paleo Hot Mulled Apple Cider, A Spiced Holiday Drink posted at Paleo Effect, saying, "This hot mulled apple cider is perfect for a Thanksgiving feast, Paleo-style!

Hadass Eviatar presents Home-made Cultured Butter! posted at My Coat of Many Colours, saying, "Following last week's milk kefir adventure, our heroine advances into the land of cultured butter, with scrumptious results. Come along for the ride!"

Join us as we prep and chow down on a feast of grass fed local thymus glands, liver, oxtail, long split and roasted marrow bones, and of course beef heart (raw and cooked!). Worth 3 minutes of your time. Showcasing the "Odd Bits" in all their glory the Big Primal way!"

Peggy Emch presents Cure Candida, Yeast Infections, and Bacterial Vaginosis With Diet posted at The Primal Parent, saying, "Candida and bacterial vaginosis are a huge problem for so many women. Take control of these issues with a fructose free diet!"

Susan Holland (MeJane) presents Daunting Shadow of an Epicure posted at Old Swimmer, saying, "Simple! How do you eat primal and still have a busy 'other" life? MeJane is skipping a lot of steps, and some knives and forks too!"

Paul Jaminet presents The Rise -- and Fall? -- of American Health posted at Perfect Health Diet @ Psychology Today, saying, "This is the first in a series discussing the big picture of health: what are the major factors in health and longevity, and can we substantially increase our healthspan and lifespan?

Amy Kubal presents Www.Match.Paleo -- Chronically Single Paleo Seeking... posted at Robb Wolf, saying, "Are you Paleo and searching for the perfect (preferably paleo) match? Or are you currently 'partnered' with some one that's less than paleo? If so, this one's for you!"

How can you give your local grocer a message of thanks this coming week as you shop for Thanksgiving groceries?"

Celebrate with friends and family, the Paleo way!"

Tarah presents Baking Success! posted at What I Gather, saying, "We're having a baby!

Of course, I'll still be sharing plenty of tasty recipes, as well!"

Alison Pierce presents Roasted Squash Soup and Pumpkin Pie from Scratch posted at Counterculture Cooking, saying, "The technique for both recipes includes pre-roasting your squash, which is a truly simple process. Ditch the canned pumpkin this Thanksgiving and go from the source!"

Primal Kitchen's Family Grokumentarian presents Thanksgiving Challenge: THANK Your Grocer! posted at Primal Kitchen: A Family Grokumentary, saying, "I was strolling through Giant today and saw *organic grassfed beef* on the shelves!
