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:
Kevin Geary presents The 21 Day Habit Myth posted at The Rebooted Body, saying, "Everyone struggles with breaking habits and patterns and forming new ones. I refer to this as 'pattern paralysis." The conventional wisdom that it takes 21 days to establish a new habit is way off. In this article I discuss the 21 day myth, where habits and patterns come from, and give clear action steps on how to break through pattern paralysis."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!

Jennifer Brand, aka Alliefitfoodie presents Simply simple paleo macaroons posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "I grew up on macaroons. They were always one of my favorites.

You know those French style macaroons that look like sandwich cookies? That’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the kind you can find at a good [Jewish] deli.
