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:
ute presents Let's talk about poop posted at Real Food 4 Me, saying, "Uncomfortable talking about poop, but got some stinky questions anyway? I talk about the 7 types of poop and discuss what may be wrong with yours. ;)."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo! We love new members!

Eileen Laird presents 4 Flavors of Cauliflower "Rice" posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "One of the benefits of developing new recipes for the blog is that it shakes me out of my food ruts. I tend to just broil or sauté cauliflower, and if I make cauli-rice, it's usually plain as a base for something more interesting, like curry. There's nothing wrong with that, but it can get a little boring. No longer! I figured your standards might be a little bit higher, so I spent the past two months trying out different flavor combinations, and today I offer my 4 favorites: Plain, Scallion, Asian Ginger, and Cinnamon Spiced Raisin. Added bonus: Cauliflower 'rice" cooks in 6 minutes and is far more nutritious than the rice it replaces. It's full of vitamins and antioxidants, it's sulfur-rich which supports our ability to detoxify, it's anti-inflammatory, and it's beneficial for our gut. On top of that, it's positively delicious!"
Vanessa presents Our bodies are innately wired to know what to eat posted at Fitbynature, saying, "Innate intelligence is a chiropractic term which means that, by way of the nervous system, our body can heal from within itself. It’s the force in living things responsible for the organization, maintenance and healing of the body. In a nutritional sense, it means that our body knows how to heal as long as we give it the right nutrition, the right biochemical choices. While an aligned spine will have a lot of effects on the functioning of our body too in regards to nutrition, a healthy gut from tongue to tip will have the same effects."
Vanessa presents Live healthy from the inside out posted at Fitbynature, saying, "Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? The best news is, and I feel I’ve first hand experience, that we can be our own healthcare givers. We need to move away from the programming we have where we seem to believe that everyone except us knows what is good for us. Through all that has happened, and my health transformation to now that I am 6 months pregnant, I am literally living healthy from the inside. And I attribute my own health transformation to both fitness and food."
Meghanne Reburn RM presents Probiotics in your Paleo Pregnancy posted at Modern Paleo Midwife, saying, "This week Meg, the Midwife follows up her Balanced Bites fertility tip with a review of a great new supplement Pro-Mom's. She also chats a bit about why probiotics are a great addition to your supplement regime during pregnancy. It's so much more than having a healthy belly!"
Sabine presents Celeriac Fries posted at Cave Food Kitchen, saying, "Don't be fooled by it's ugly exterior: the celeriac is a very versatile, low calorie vegetable that is also high in vitamin C. It's also about 40% lower in calories than regular potatoes."
Sabine presents Non-Dairy Cheese posted at Cave Food Kitchen, saying, "Missing cheese in your life? Check how you can transform cashews into a creamy cheese!"
Louise Hendon presents List of Nightshades Foods and Why You Might Want To Avoid Them posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "The Paleo autoimmune protocol avoids all nightshades, so here's a comprehensive list of nightshades so you know what to avoid. And if you don't know about the autoimmune protocol, then this article also explains why you might want to stop eating nightshades."
Louise Hendon presents Grilled Cumin Crusted Lamb Chops Recipe posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "This recipe is the most delicious way of cooking lamb chops I've ever found! So tender and flavorful."
Steve Kirsch presents Once you clean things up, it's pretty f*%^ing simple posted at The Paleo Drummer, saying, "Low carb, high carb, whatever.... Listen to your body; it knows what it wants, and that may vary day to day."
Sophie presents AIP / PALEO FRUIT TERRINE WITH BERRIES – NO BAKE VALENTINE DESSERT posted at A Squirrel in the Kitchen, saying, "This colorful and healthy no-bake fruit terrine is my go-to “cake” for birthdays, celebrations, and tea time parties! I absolutely love preparing paleo desserts with fresh fruits."
Blair presents Better Fat Burner (BFB) Approved posted at Menopause Happens, saying, "One of the best ways to address health issues is to become a better fat burner. The end results include hormone stabilization, increased energy, decreased chronic disease risk; and, in many cases, a transformed physique!"
Paul Jaminet presents Neu5Gc and Autoimmunity: Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism posted at Perfect Health Diet, saying, "It appears that mammalian meats (beef, lamb, pork) may play a causal role in Hashimoto's hypothyroidism. Replacing these with bird, fish, and shellfish may be a good therapy."
Jeah Kessha presents 100 Primitive Positions: tips and tricks for the Paleo Office posted at Footloose and Chairfree, saying, "This short video shows you how to tweak your own office space to squeeze every ounce of juice out of each minute so you are stretching, toning, stimulating metabolism and supercharging your creativity. As hunter/gathers, going barefoot and eating lots of butter aren't enough. We need to MOVE all day not sit or stand."
