The Paleo Rodeo #184

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:

I LOVE cooking but I HATE cleaning up! Because of this, when I cook, I do it with as little hassle as possible. For me that means using a minimal number of ingredients (and cooking equipment). If I see a recipe with a laundry list of ingredients and instructions my ADHD kicks in and I start to… hey was that a bird? This recipe is super simple, and YUMMY!"
