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:
Sabine presents Locked-up Eggs posted at Cave Food Kitchen, saying, "This dish is perfect for a Sunday breakfast or brunch, but could just as easily be dinner."Many thanks to the PaleoBloggers who submitted to this edition of the The Paleo Rodeo!

Blair presents Decrease Insulin to Increase Fat Burning posted at Menopause Happens, saying, "Adopting a lower carb and higher natural fat way of eating can take insulin out of the equation enough to where our bodies have no other choice but to burn more fat. Plus this week’s Better-Fat-Burner links, CocoButter balls, and a free eBook offer—limited time only—act fast!"
Eileen presents AIP Food Pyramid posted at Phoenix Helix, saying, "We've all seen the USDA food pyramid, and we know that's a recipe for poor health. Are you curious what an AIP food pyramid looks like? What foods make up the foundation? Which ones are at the top and reserved for special occasions? When it comes to the paleo autoimmune protocol, we focus a lot on what we can't eat. But the key to being happy on a healing diet is knowing what we CAN eat, and realizing that we can eat delicious, satiating food every single day, and heal at the same time."
Jeah Kessha presents Kick Ass Kultured Vegies posted at Paleo all the Way, saying, "I invented this recipe in search of a mild cultured veggie mix that would be like a stew or a stir fry, but completely raw. The idea was an 'instant meal' type thing that would go with meat, cheese and butter, be mouth watering delicious, and pack a powerhouse of super-food caliber nutrition."
Vanessa presents What happens when you get off sugar and back on far posted at Fitbynature, saying, "Sugar is everywhere. In fact there are so many words for sugar I've had trouble fitting them on a US letter size page in a size 6 font. One of the reasons perhaps for so many sugars in our foods is that we’ve deliberately processed the fat out: low fat food products are big business and for the last thirty years, we’ve actually been lead to believe that that’s the key to health. Our heart foundations have actually gotten behind these products with their tick of approval and media have convinced us that buying these products is all we need now to ensure health."
Jennifer Brand presents Size does matter: LDL particle size (and number) posted at Alliefitfoodie, saying, "I'm continuing on my heart disease/cholesterol theme again this week, this time discussing the SIZE of LDL particles. It's becoming clear that our old 'friend' LDL cholesterol doesn't tell the entire story, and that there are many more intricacies involved in the pathophysiology of heart disease."
Melissa Bishop presents Using Organo Gold to make bullet proof coffee posted at Focus on Paleo, saying, "If you're going to drink coffee, drink coffee that can improve your health."
Melissa Bishop presents Seeing my illness unfold and knowing what to do about it posted at Focus on Paleo, saying, "Finally seeing my illness, step-by-step, as it takes over my body was incredibly enlightening. Go easy on people you think are just fat and out of control. The out of control part might be right, but not in the way you might be thinking."
