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:
Ruth presents Paleo Nectarine and Berry Delight posted at Paleo Diet Basics, saying, "My favorate paleo desserts are those that were paleo from the get-go, not paleo versions of cakes and cookies.

Eileen presents Southern Fried Apples posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "Prior to developing rheumatoid arthritis, I stopped at Cracker Barrel on every road trip. My favorite meal was pot roast with gravy, a double order of hash brown casserole, and fried apples. Sigh…to remember the convenience of restaurant meals where I could order anything on the menu. Now, Cracker Barrel is no longer an option, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy some of those favorite flavors at home. Here's my re-creation of skillet fried apples. It's easy, delicious, and you don't have to be on the road, to enjoy it."
