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:

Nell Stephenson presents Eat Food, Not Advil posted at Paleoista, by Nell Stephenson, saying, "Paleo expert Nell Stephenson writes about a small article in a recent issue of Oprah's magazine that suggests looking at one's diet rather than just taking Advil for muscle soreness."

Salixisme presents Garlic Wasabi Pork Chops posted at Salixisme, saying, "I was very skeptical about pairing wasabi with pork for this recipe, but it was WONDERFUL! You still got some of the wasabi flavour coming through, but it was not mouth burningly hot… somehow, cooking the wasabi mellowed it. And the flavour went incredibly well with the meatiness of the pork."
Salixisme presents Asian Inspired Kale Salad posted at Salixisme - Paleo Living, saying, "I served this robust salad with the Garlic Wasabi Pork Chops, and the flavours paired very well.
