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:
Meghanne Reburn RM presents Pregnancy Cravings. The why and the why the heck not? posted at Modern Paleo Midwife, saying, "Meg, the Midwife, explores a common issue for many pregnant women, cravings. Why do we get them? How can we maintain a healthy paleo diet when all we want to do is reach for the bag of cookies or boxed mac and cheese?"Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!

Melissa Joulwan presents Tips for Eating Paleo in Restaurants posted at The Clothes Make The Girl, saying, "Tons of tips so you can enjoy meals in restaurants without trashing your good habits."
Eileen Laird presents Episode 13: Autoimmunity and Infertility posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "This episode of the Phoenix Helix podcast delves into the connection between autoimmunity and infertility. Our guest, Dr. Fiona McCulloch, has 14 years experience helping women have babies. Many of her patients have autoimmune disease as well. Why is that a common problem, and how can we reverse it and restore our fertility, along with our health?"
Vanessa presents Health is cellular posted at Fitbynature, saying, "If you think of who you are you can say ‘I am a collection of 100 trillion cells’. But like wise, when our cells are nutrient deficient we go on a downward spiral."
Vanessa presents Every meal should be a treat posted at Fitbynature, saying, "I’ve always been one of those people that needed something sweet after dinner. But let’s be honest: anything that seriously satisfies our sweet tooth isn’t going to be the epitome of health: most snacks contain (gasp!) sugar."
Sophie presents Apple and sage elk meatloaf posted at A Squirrel in the kitchen, saying, "If you are not familiar with elk meat, this recipe is a good way to break the ice! It is really hard to mess up a meatloaf and they always taste good (well, most of the time!). Actually I would put meatloaf in the comfort food category. It is also something you can make ahead of time and serve for dinner on week-day nights. Perfect!"
Blair presents Coo Coo for Coconut posted at Menopause Happens, saying, "In this post I pay tribute to coconut and explain why it is a great replacement for high carbohydrate foods. I also share my Coco-Nut Granola recipe and provide a compilation of last week's BFB (Better Fat Burner) links."
Sabine presents Coconut Crusted Cod posted at Cave Food Kitchen, saying, "Codfish is an excellent source of protein, but on it's own, it tastes a bit bland. There's a reason why often it's rolled in breadcrumbs and fried to make it more tasty. However, with the right spices and coating, you can make a similar version yourself, using shredded coconut as a breading, which provides a mild sweet taste, extra fiber and healthy fats."
Jeah Kessha presents How Textiles Effect Your Health and Sleep posted at Footloose and Chairfree, saying, "We actually 'eat' the chemicals found in clothing bedding, through our skin and lungs. We are being exposed to thousands of endocrine blocking agents, compromising the efforts we make in the diet realm. Find out how it works and what you can do about it."
Amy Kubal presents Paleofication: Just Because The Label Says Paleo Doesn’t Mean It's Healthy... posted at Robb Wolf, saying, "I haven't ranted in quite a while - so, let's talk about that Paleo bread, cookie, granola... This is a good one, folks. Brace yourselves!!"
Clare Gravolet presents Top 10 Most Popular Recipes on Happy-Eater.Com posted at Happy Eater, saying, "My blog is about eight months old now, and over the past few months some of my readers' favorite recipes have started emerging! This post includes readers' favorite Paleo/Primal recipes! (My personal favorite are the spiced cinnamon maple pecans!)."
Louise Hendon presents Paleo Curried Chicken Salad Recipe posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "Delicious chicken curry salad recipe - easy to make and super tasty!"
Louise Hendon presents 20 Perfect Paleo Keto Recipes posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "This list of Paleo keto recipes will help you stick to a ketogenic diet more easily!"
