The Paleo Rodeo #178

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:
Kris Gunnars presents Top 10 Evidence-Based Health Benefits of Green Tea posted at Authority Nutrition, saying, "Green tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet. Multiple studies show that green tea has powerful health benefits and therapeutic effects in humans."

Sabine presents The easiest Hollandaise Sauce posted at Cave Food Kitchen, saying, "If you eat butter on Paleo, this is a must-try recipe!"

Sabine presents Crushed Sweet Potato posted at Cave Food Kitchen, saying, "Sweet potatoes just a little different..."

Jennifer Brand presents What Is Black, White, Grey and Paleo All Over? posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "I was inspired to write this piece after seeing several posts about the 'paleo police' and how they may discouraging others from entering the paleo blogging world, and the paleo world in general. There needs to be a balance between staying true to what it means to be paleo and making sure that the educational aspect is shared (what is and what is not paleo), while enabling/allowing people to explore their creativity (in blogging), and versatility by finding the dietary balance that works for them. Let's encourage others to join us in spreading the word about the paleo lifestyle and its benefits."

Jennifer Brand presents Paleo "I'm So Hungry I'm Going To Eat My Hand" Coconut Fried Shrimp posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "A recipe for paleo coconut fried shrimp. And a super simple one at that! It's easy to follow a paleo lifestyle and eat great tasting food, and a variety of it!"

Neely Quinn presents Here's A Quick Workout You Can Do At Home posted at Paleo Plan, saying, "You can’t get any real exercise done in 15 minutes, right? Wrong! You can, and we created a whole fitness program around workouts that are quick (20 minutes or less), hard, and dirty. Ok, maybe not dirty, but they definitely get the job done :)."

Nell Stephenson presents Butter’s In, But All Other Dairy’s Out? Wrong! NO DAIRY ON PALEO! posted at Paleoista, by Nell Stephenson, saying, "Paleo exert Nell Stephenson explains why dairy is not Paleo."

Sara Hatch presents Doing a Whole30 posted at Edible, saying, "Join me as I persevere through the trials and tribulations of a Whole30!"

Eileen Laird presents How To Survive An Autoimmune Flare posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "When you're new to a healing diet, it can take time for autoimmune flares to go away. Mine diminished in number and intensity once I changed the way I ate, but it was almost a year before they were gone for good. Today, I share 19 tips to make it through those days."

The Cavegirls presents New and Improved Zucchini Bread Recipe posted at Northwest Cavegirls, saying, "Are you drowning in zucchini from your garden or have you seen some really nice ones at the local farmer's market? One of my favorite summer treats is zucchini bread. I've made several recipes over the years but this one is definitely the best. It's just sweet enough, filled with zucchini goodness and has a hint of spice. Give it a try!"

The Cavekids presents Back to School Lunch and Breakfast Ideas posted at Northwest Cavegirls, saying, "My Cavekids have been hard at work making up a list of good lunch box foods to pack for this school year. Both have decided to give full Paleo a try and are doing their research into what makes a good Paleo lunch and what tastes great. They will be documenting their lunches over the next few months and have kicked off the project with their first day lunch box pictures. What do you put in your kids' lunch boxes?"
