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:
Vanessa presents Maybe there's more to health than food posted at Fitbynature, saying, "There’s absolutely no doubt that the food we eat is one of the most important factors that determines our health. But it’s a mistake to assume that food is the only consideration that matters when it comes to health, and that all health problems can be solved simply by making dietary changes."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!

Vanessa presents We are what we eat, but how we cook it too posted at Fitbynature, saying, "It's well and good, in fact necessary for health, to avoid processed foods and eat whole, nutrient dense properly prepared foods. But one of the greatest insults to nourishment in our processed food culture is the high heat at which so much it is cooked."
Sophie presents Paleo Oven Baked Cod Fish “En Papillote” With Spinach And Leeks posted at A Squirrel in the kitchen, saying, "Pretty, delicious, and healthy, this oven baked cod fish “en papillote” is a feast for the eyes! Yet another example that you can eat like a gourmet on the paleo autoimmune protocol!"
Eileen Laird presents Episode 11: Reintroducing Foods on the Paleo AIP posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "This episode of the Phoenix Helix podcast covers Reintroducing Foods on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. Strict AIP isn't meant to last forever. Today, I'm joined by two women with autoimmune disease who have been doing the AIP long-term. We talk about when to start reintroductions, how to do them correctly, and share our personal experiences with which foods we've successfully added back into our diet."
Blair presents Estrogen Makes Good--Thanks to DIM! posted at Menopause Happens, saying, "Women--you can protect your boobs--and men--you can prevent moobs--when estrogen is led to do good things. This post is about steering estrogen metabolism towards what makes us more vital and away from what causes us trouble."
Jeah Kessha presents Nerd vs. Paleo: How to Set Up a Movement Friendly Fitness Office posted at Paleo all the Way, saying, "Everyone’s down on sedentary. But how do you incorporate movement into the office? Standing all day is just as bad as sitting. Treadmills actually throw us off balance. So what’s left? How about hundreds of varying positions and constant stretching toning and movement? Two short videos walk you through how it works."
Melissa Bishop presents Maybe, Bruce just needs to eat more beef? posted at Focus on Paleo, saying, "I don't know if, Bruce Jenner sought hormone replacement therapy as he aged but food, and environmental factors may have had a major role in his latest decision."
Clare Gravolet presents Coconut Butter Salmon and Indian Spiced Sweet Potatoes posted at Happy Eater, saying, "Do you ever have those moments when you sit back and think 'THIS is why I am Paleo," and everything feels wonderful in that moment?
