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 The Great Starch Experiment posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "I came to paleo through the GAPS diet doorway, which is a low-starch version of the paleo diet. When I switched to the paleo autoimmune protocol, I continued to eat low-starch. I had seen a lot of improvement and didn't want to risk worsening symptoms. After 18 months, I decided it was time to test the low-starch theory. Did I really need to avoid them? The paleo community (including the Paleo Mom) recommend starch consumption, and as 'safe starches" become more and more popular, GAPS is becoming more and more criticized. I spent the winter slowly reintroducing starches into my diet and monitoring my body's response. Are you curious about my results?"
Kris Gunnars presents How Blocking Blue Light at Night Can Transform Your Sleep posted at Authority Nutrition, saying, "By blocking blue light in the evening, you can prevent the disruption in the natural sleep-wake cycle caused by artificial lighting and electronics."

I was inspired by a primal pizza I made and just had to write about it. Food as inspiration, yeah, sounds about right ;)."
