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:

Louise Hendon presents What’s So Bad About Soy? Don’t Asians Eat a Lot of It? posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "The Paleo diet recommends not eating any soy, but yet soy is such an integral part of many Asian cuisines. So why is soy so unhealthy?"
Louise Hendon presents Is Stevia Paleo? 5 Reasons Why Stevia Isn’t Paleo posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "Stevia is often considered a healthy alternative to sugar, but is it really healthier? And how does it compare to artificial sweeteners?"
Eileen Laird presents Episode 07: The Wahls Protocol posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "This episode of the Phoenix Helix podcast is an in-depth interview with Dr. Terry Wahls. We talk about her protocol in detail, mistakes people make, transitioning from vegetarianism, do a guided meditation, and get an update on her clinical trials. It's a power-packed interview!"
Vanessa presents Is Paleo Enough? posted at Fitbynature, saying, "My interest in nutrition stems from a life challenging illness (and the way back!). In 2010 I had emergency brain surgery to remove a tennis ball size brain tumor and to reduce the swelling of a melon sized sac of fluid surrounding it. In the four years since I have focused a lot on what I eat. I was obviously doing something wrong. I was the fittest sick person my friends, family or neurosurgeon knew. I didn’t realize that what I was doing eating wise is now called a ‘Paleo diet’. I think of it as a template for investigating my own body, a good descriptor for a nutrient-dense, toxin-free, whole-foods based diet that emphasizes animal protein and fats, starchy and non-starchy vegetables, fermented foods, raw dairy (when tolerated) and fruit, nuts and seeds (in moderation). I am not going back and now I am 5months pregnant with a healthy growing baby boy :)."
