The Paleo Rodeo #180

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:
Tara Grant presents PrimalGirl Reads: Primal Moms Look Good Naked by Peggy Emch posted at PrimalGirl, saying, "I sat down with a copy of Peggy Emch's (thePrimalParent.com) book, Primal Moms Look Good Naked. Here are my thoughts."

Jennifer Brand, aka Alliefitfoodie presents Calling you out paleo style posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "My family inspired this piece. They got me thinking about how passive most of our society is when it comes to health, diet and overall nutrition, and how people follow the [ill] advice of what they consider reputable resources, without questioning the information they receive."

Jennifer Brand, aka Alliefitfoodie presents Ginger orange beef [paleo] baby posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "A crock pot recipe for ginger orange beef! I love crock pot cooking. It's so easy!"

Salixisme presents Shrimp and Crab Cakes with Avocado Mayo posted at Salixisme - Paleo Living, saying, "This was a delicious meal… tender, tasty seafood (who does not love shrimp and crab?), shaped into crispy coconut coated cakes, with a creamy, green avocado mayonnaise to dip them in. And because they are baked in the oven, there is no need to fry which meant that they were not greasy."

Meghanne Reburn presents How to eat Paleo during Pregnancy: A guide to every trimester posted at CaveGirl Plus One, saying, "In this first of a three part series, Meg, 'the Paleo Midwife', shares tips, insights and SUPER recipes to help with first trimester nausea, food aversions and crazy carb cravings."

Kellie Phelan presents A Coconut-y Frozen Treat posted at Traditional Wisdom, saying, "I’m generally not a big believer in Paleo desserts, but I do have a trick or two up my sleeve for whena Paleo dessert is called for – like on these last hot summer days.
