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 Ep. 8 - Health and Nutrition Coaching posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "This episode of the Phoenix Helix podcast is an in-depth look at health and nutrition coaching. Reversing autoimmune disease through diet and lifestyle is hard work. The rewards are absolutely worth it, but sometimes a little extra help can make it a whole lot easier. When do we ask for that help? What's the difference between health and nutrition coaching? What range of services are offered? Today, I'm joined by Angie Alt and Katy Haldiman. They both have autoimmune disease which they reversed through diet and lifestyle, and they now work professionally helping others do the same."
