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:

Neely Quinn presents Should You Do A Post Workout Recovery Drink or No? posted at Paleo Plan, saying, "The fitness media can make it sound like you need protein as fast as you can get it. You don’t want to be losing muscle mass! Oh, God! But is this advice primarily for bodybuilders and line backers, or can it apply to the rest of us?"
Eileen Laird presents Introduction to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "Do you believe in the mindbody connection, and the power emotions have over our physical health? Research is showing this connection more and more clearly all the time. Today, I write about the Emotional Freedom Technique, a simple process for releasing negative emotions that may be holding you back. While it's a tool that can help us year-round, the holidays seemed an especially good time to teach it."

Jennifer Brand, aka Alliefitfoodie presents Inflammation nation posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "I don’t think anyone can dispute the fact that we are a nation plagued with chronic disease. And many of these chronic conditions have lifestyle related factors associated with them. Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer. We hear more and more about autoimmune diseases (like arthritis) nowadays as well, and chronic pain. What do these different conditions have in common other than the fact that they have lifestyle components associated with them? If you guessed inflammation, you’d be right! In this article I do a little research on the subject of inflammation."
