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 Apple Cider Vinegar Can Relieve Acid Reflux posted at Paleo Diet Basics, saying, "Yes, it sounds counter intuitive, but if you're into paleo you already know that so many things 'everybody" knows to be true simply aren't.

Food is just food. posted at The Paleo Drummer, saying, "A friend excitedly told me about her deadlift PR and how she 'earned" the right to eat a doughnut.
