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:
Eileen Laird presents Coconut Creamed Collards posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "My love of greens just keeps growing, and this is my favorite way to prepare collard greens. The sweetness of the coconut and shallots pairs perfectly with the slightly bitter greens, and the collards themselves act as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, detox support and digestive aids. How cool is that? This is why Terry Wahls and Sarah Ballantyne both say, 'Eat your veggies!"."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!

Salixisme presents Gravlax (Cured Salmon) posted at Salixisme - Paleo Living, saying, "Gravlax is a Nordic (Norwegian and Swedish) cured salmon dish, where the fish is cured in a mixture of salt and sugar, usually with dill, and is then consumed raw. I modified a traditional gravlax recipe to remove the sugar. If you love smoked salmon, you will most likely love this fish preparation as well."
Salixisme presents Lacto-Fermented Cucumber Relish posted at Salixisme - Paleo Living, saying, "This is the relish that I made to go with the gravlax. It is a naturally fermented relish with a pleasant tangy flavour, and none of the harshness that vinegar containing relishes have. It is very simple to make and full of healthy, gut-friendly probiotics."
