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:
Kevin Geary presents Fitting Out: How to Dramatically Improve Your Health by Rejecting the Status Quo posted at Rebooted Body: Fat Loss + Peak Performance + Vibrant Health, saying, "Have you always lived by the status quo?

Jennifer Brand presents Ketones and ketoacidosis, what’s the deal? posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "In this piece I set out to explain the difference between ketosis which is a normal metabolic state the body can enter when there is a lack of dietary carbohydrates, and in times of fasting (even overnight fasting), and ketoacidosis which is a life threatening condition that can occur in uncontrolled type 1 diabetes for example."
Vanessa presents Coconut oil - the gateway fat posted at Fitbynature, saying, "Now that sugar is accepted as the bad guy in our food, it’s time to get back into fat."
Louise Hendon presents How to Make Ghee In a Slow Cooker posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "Ghee is so delicious, healthy, and easy to make. So follow this simple recipe to make it at home in your slow cooker."
Louise Hendon presents Why You Need A Foam Roller (Including 4 Foam Roller Exercises) posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "If you don't have a foam roller, then you don't know what you're missing! I use it to roll out my muscles after exercising and to massage any muscles that are sore."
Louise Hendon presents How To Start A Paleo Diet (5 Options – I like #5 the best) posted at Paleo Living Magazine, saying, "There are a variety of ways to start a Paleo diet, so choose the one that best fits your lifestyle and personality."
Blair presents Orgasmic and Herbal Cortisol Management posted at Menopause Happens, saying, "Chronic exposure to high cortisol leads to bodily insults and, like a burn from a flame, the more prolonged the exposure, the greater the damage. This post offers up ways to prevent getting burned by cortisol and features another Paleo Little Effort Big Result recipe along with this week's Better-Fat-Burner links."
Eileen presents Instant Pot Bone Broth Tutorial posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "I've jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon, and I am in love. I could tell you that it's this cool machine that is a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and even has a sauté function that lets you brown meat before cooking. And it is all of those things, but honestly? There is one simple reason that I'm a smitten kitten. It makes 24-hour gelatinous bone broth in just 2-1/2 hours. I have been making 24-hour bone broth for almost 3 years, and saving this much time in the kitchen fills me with the kind of gratitude that only 'real food cooks" like yourself can understand. Ready to do a happy dance in your kitchen?"
Jeah Kessha presents 20 Powerful Detox Tools/Techniques posted at Paleo all the Way, saying, "Detoxing is always happening. Toxicity is always happening, in our current world. Just getting the body to work properly will cause it to naturally detox, that is, push things out that don’t belong there. This overview provides a practical outline combining unusual principles from a variety of modalities."
Laura P presents The Power Of Zinc, The "Intelligence Mineral" posted at Rising Moon Nutrition, saying, "Zinc is an often overlooked, yet extremely important trace mineral. Modern diets not only lack sufficient zinc, but they also prevent the body from absorbing it. Here is some info on where to get zinc in a traditional foods diet and why this mineral is so important for healing the body!"
