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:
Kris Gunnars presents 5 Muscle Nutrients Found Only in Animal Foods posted at Authority Nutrition, saying, "There are many nutrients in animal foods like meat and fish that can not be derived from plant foods. A deficiency can adversely affect muscle mass."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo! We love new members!

Nell Stephenson presents Is Bloating A Normal Part of Aging? I Think Not! posted at Paleoista, saying, "Paleo expert Nell Stephenson writes about the silly idea that regular bloating in women 35 and over is normal, and part of 'again' and mostly due to hormones."
Peggy Emch presents Response: What Mother’s Bodies Really Look Like posted at The Primal Parent, saying, "...just because it is perfectly natural to bear blemishes doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t try to avoid accumulating too many of them – not for aesthetics’ sake but because the more scars we endure, the more we are likely beating ourselves up and disregarding the survival of our species..."
Kevin Geary presents How to Get Lean: The Top Five Essential Fitness Tools posted at The Rebooted Body, saying, "Does this list look a little short? It’s probably because the gym industry has spent billions of dollars insisting that you need dozens of pieces of equipment, their membership, and countless other as-seen-on-tv products to get lean and fit. It’s just not true."
Steve Kirsch presents Me, on a podcast; go check it out! posted at The Paleo Drummer, saying, "Kendall Kendrick had me as a guest on her 'Born Primal" podcast.

Eileen Laird presents Nightshade-Free Survival Guide posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "You may have heard of the term “deadly nightshade” referring to a plant called belladonna, which was used as a poison in ancient times. Lesser known are the commonly eaten vegetables in the same nightshade family. They aren’t deadly, but they contain enough toxins to cause inflammation in some people, particularly those with autoimmune disease."
Eileen Laird presents Curried Chicken and "Rice" Stew posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "A hearty and delicious paleo stew, with a nightshade-free curry option for those who need it."
