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 6 Graphs That Show Why The “War” on Fat Was a Huge Mistake posted at Authority Nutrition, saying, "The 'war on fat" is the biggest mistake in the history of nutrition and modern medicine.

Jennifer Brand, aka Alliefitfoodie presents Goodness gracious great balls of meat posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "Paleo Pen Pals! Yep, that’s right! There is a group called Paleo Pen Pals. I stumbled upon them on Facebook towards the end of October. What an interesting concept I thought. Folks get paired up, send each other a paleo friendly ingredient, and each recipient is tasked with making something with the ingredient they receive. This recipe was created with ingredients my pen pal sent me."
Neely Quinn presents 3 Ways to Deal with Food Cravings posted at Paleo Plan, saying, "Food cravings are the #1 killer of diets all across the planet. They’re insidious, nasty buggers that come out of nowhere and destroy even the best of dietary intentions. Let's try to change that."

Eileen Laird presents Charle's Healed Ankylosing Spondylitis with Paleo posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "Ankylosing spondylitis is an autoimmune condition that affects the spine. At its worst, Charles lived a life of constant, debilitating pain, where pain medication had no effect. His disease also caused a dangerous heart condition.

If you're not on the AIP, check out the recipes anyway; they're bound to be delicious, and we all love good food!"
