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:

However, sometimes there are exceptions to even my own “rules” and some folks may be “qualified” to consume protein in a non-food/powdered form. Read this post to find out who I'm talking about and what protein powders are acceptable."

I’ve never been much of a pesto person and hadn’t made pesto at all until yesterday. Boy, have I been missing out! I had some cilantro, spinach and garlic in my veggie box this week, and decided I’d give pesto a go. One recipe I found for making basil pesto used a mortar and pestle to crush everything together, but I don’t have a mortar and pestle, and like to use power tools for heavy duty mixing like this. So I fired up my blender to get everything mixed together well."
Melissa,a.k.a. Cavechic presents Why can't people think for themselves when it comes to food? posted at Paleo Connections, saying, "When it comes to food, many people let someone else do their research, and thinking, for them.
