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 Can Skipping Sleep Cause an Autoimmune Flare? posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "How many of us try to squeeze extra time out of the day, by staying up late or getting up early? We sacrifice sleep, because in American culture, we don’t value it. We consider it unproductive time, but we’re wrong. When it comes to reversing autoimmune disease, sleep is as important to our health as diet, and it might be the key (or the obstacle) to remission. Research also shows that we can’t “catch up” on sleep over the weekend. It feels like we can, because we’re less tired after a couple of good nights’ sleep, but on a cellular level we haven’t recovered. In today's post, I share the research along with tips for how to get sleep well and long."
Sophie presents HOW TO CUT AND PEEL BUTTERNUT SQUASH? posted at A Squirrel in the Kitchen, saying, "Great tutorial on how to cut and peel butternut squash (in less than 10 minutes!). Tools needed: a cutting board, a kitchen serrated knife, vegetable peeler, and a spoon."
Eileen presents Episode 09: What Is Functional Medicine? posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "This episode of the Phoenix Helix podcast answers the question, 'What is Functional Medicine?" Our guest is Anne Angelone, acupuncturist, herbalist and functional medicine practitioner. She talks about what health obstacles can interfere with autoimmune healing, which tests are most helpful, and which interventions she recommends. Anne also has autoimmune disease herself (ankylosing spondylitis and uveitis), and shares her healing story with us today."
Vanessa presents Our modern deficiencies: nutrients and movement posted at Fitbynature, saying, "For a long time we’ve been near obsessed with calories and exercise. But we’ve tended to favor these in abundance at the expense of their foundations. Chances are, most of our health and fitness problems, and in that order, are because we’re nutrient not calorie deficient, and likewise movement not exercise deficient."
Vanessa presents Nutrient dense foods you can make yourself posted at Fitbynature, saying, "Nutrient dense' is an overused term that can make us think that we are eating a nutrient dense diet, when we aren’t. That dark chocolate you ate may be good for you, but that doesn’t mean you are eating a nutrient dense diet."
Meghan Little and Angel Ayala Torres presents Paleo Fried Green Tomatoes, A Southern, Late Night Snack posted at Paleo Effect, saying, "It's a new year and time for a new you...and we're here to help!

Paul Jaminet presents Neu5gc, Red Meat, and Human Disease: Part I posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "Inspired by the recent 'red meat scare" linking red meat to cancer, I look into the potential of non-human sugars such as Neu5gc to cause human disease, especially autoimmune disease."
