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:
The Cavegirls presents Beets, Beets, Beets! posted at Northwest Cavegirls, saying, "Cavegranny Sue has a small obsession with beetroot right now. Having established that she has a bomb of a gallstone hanging out in her gallbladder, Cavegirl Sue is all about healing and soothing that little sucker until she can have it removed. Sue took over the Cavegirl kitchen this morning to make a number of beet dishes which incorporated the whole beet!"Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!
