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:
Kevin Geary presents 8 Examples of Black and White Thinking That Destroy Your Weight Loss and Health Goals posted at Rebooted Body- Ancestral Science and Modern Psychology, saying, "Changing your body is not black and white, one size fits all. It's about taking time to fix all the broken parts of your lifestyle that hinder you from having the body you want. Read on to see some of the common thinking errors you may be making!"Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo! We love new members!

Vanessa Green presents Why changing your food isn't Paleo enough posted at Fitbynature, saying, "We also need a basic (or paleo) movement standard, and you can discover yours. In fact you should; you’re your own best coach and doctor. That’s the best thing about the paleo template, working things out for your own health, food and movement, from the inside out."
Vanessa Green presents The Paleo Way Out (of our Food Pyramid Scheme) posted at Fitbynature, saying, "Anyone who 'knows' what specific diet is best is either misguided, selling something, or likely both.' That said, Paleo provides us with a template to become our own best health coaches."
Louise Hendon presents 3 Things That Should Worry You Far More Than GMOs posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "While everyone is worrying about GMOs, they're missing the bigger picture."
Eileen Laird presents Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "One of the complaints you often hear about paleo is that it can be an expensive. There are no coupons for organic broccoli, and the 'buy 1 get 1 free" sales at the grocery store feature junk food, not wildcaught salmon. Still, there are some foods that are incredibly good for you, while also being easy on the wallet. Cabbage is one of those foods, and this is my favorite way to prepare it. P.S. I never liked cabbage until I tried this recipe."
Sabine presents Lamb Pastilla posted at Cave Food Kitchen, saying, "A Moroccan sweet and hearty lamb dish that will satisfy all senses!"
Kris Gunnars presents 12 Graphs That Show Why People Get Fat posted at Authority Nutrition, saying, "People are fatter and sicker than ever before in history. Here are 12 graphs that show the true reasons why people are getting fat."
Erica presents Why Paleo and Gluten-Free are not fad diets posted at Life Is Paleo, saying, "A brief discussion on why a Paleo lifestyle and/ gluten free are not 'fads"."
Diane Sanfilippo presents Podcast Episode #155: Paleo Bread, Fat Shaming, Green Juice and food photo table manners? posted at Diane Sanfilippo, saying, "The newest Podcast with kitchen tips, homesteading adventures and a rant about fat shaming!"
Meghanne Reburn RM presents Pregnancy "detoxing" and the 21-day Sugar Detox posted at CaveGirl Plus One, saying, "This week Meg 'the Paleo Midwife", talks about the safety of 'detoxing' in pregnancy and why the 21-day sugar detox may be a great option if you are looking to optimize your diet, increase your nutrient density and stabilize your blood sugars during pregnancy."
Meghan Little presents Paleo Platano Chips, A Plantain Snack posted at Paleo Effect, saying, "This recipe for Paleo Plantano Chips is a favorite in our house! Try them with some Paleo Salsa Verde or Paleo Guacamole!"
