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:
Sophie presents AIP / Paleo Honey Lavender Oven baked Apples posted at A Squirrel in the kitchen, saying, "Oven baked apples are a delicious and healthy treat to satisfy your sweet cravings.

Eileen Laird presents GAPS Intro Diet Modified for Autoimmune Disease posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "I started with the GAPS diet, and then transitioned to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), because I was still struggling with inflammation and autoimmune flares. While the GAPS Introduction Diet can be a powerful healing protocol for some, it's an inflammatory protocol for others, because it reintroduces foods very quickly that are common food intolerances (such as nuts, dairy and eggs.) The Paleo Nurse is a nutritional therapist who has modified the GAPS Introduction Diet to use with her autoimmune clients and shares her protocol on my blog today."
Vanessa presents Portion control is really about listening to your body posted at Fitbynature, saying, "Healthy eating means making healthful food choices, which means feeling, not necessarily 'knowing' what and how much you eat. Here's some tips to overcome portion distortion and to downsize your helpings."
Vanessa presents Sometimes you need real food and convenience without the prep work posted at Fitbynature, saying, "One of the toughest things about choosing to eat whole foods is the amount of prep work and cooking required. It’s antithesis, processed food, offers those lovely convenient all in one packages, as well as their lovely numbers, colors, preservatives and additives. But they’re no only stripped of nutrients your body needs, they cost your body nutrients to digest and get rid of. No wonder we’re all nutrient deficient. Even just choosing whole foods we’re re-mineralizing a lot of what processed foods neither provide and take away at the same time."
Ali Crosthwait presents I Don't Want to Exercise posted at Rebooted Body: Fat Loss + Peak Performance + Vibrant Health, saying, "Can you resonate with this?? Read on to find how out how to end the battle with exercise!"
