Mayonnaise – that luscious condiment that we love to put on sandwiches, burgers, and sometimes even on french fries. Let’s not forget that it is an essential component of potato salad, egg salad, chicken salad, and even a cake or two. Are you surprised to hear that you can make it at home?

Did you know that the creamy white sauce was enjoyed as far back as 1756 in Spain? Back then it was made with real ingredients. Today we are sold bottles of “real mayonnaise,” but there are a few ingredients that I am sure the original never had such as soybean oil.

Ingredients

To make this all-purpose condiment, you need the following ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cup light olive oil divided
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ to 1 lemon juiced

How To Make Homemade Mayo

Make the mayo by placing the egg, 1/4 cup of olive oil, mustard powder, and salt in a mixing bowl, blender, or food processor. Mix it thoroughly.

While the food processor or blender is running (or while mixing in a bowl with a stick blender), slowly drizzle in the remaining cup of olive oil.

After you’ve added all the oil and the mixture has emulsified, add lemon juice to taste, stirring gently with a spoon to incorporate.

It is pretty neat watching the oil and eggs go from separate states to become homemade mayo.

You can change the flavor profile by adding a few herbs and/or spices.

It Starts With Food

It Starts With Food book

It Starts With Food was written by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, the creators of the Whole 30 program. Dallas, a Certified Sports Nutritionist, licensed physical therapist, and functional medicine practitioner, specializes in addressing the underlying causes of disease using a systems-oriented approach.

Melissaalso a Certified Sports Nutritionist as well as a RKC-certified kettlebell instructor, specializes in helping people change their relationship with food and create lifelong, healthy habits. They created their program in 2009 and first published their book in 2012.

They have created a program that helps people figure out their own optimal diet. For 30 days, participants eliminate grains, dairy, sugar, alcohol, legumes, and a few other things. Don’t worry, though, because after you have completed the program there is a re-introductory period.

During this period, which lasts 10 days, legumes, non-gluten grains, dairy, and gluten-containing grains are phased back into the diet. The elimination of those foods for 30 days and the re-introduction period allows one to learn whether or not those foods have an adverse effect on their health.

Many people have grown so accustomed to the inflammation, cravings, and physiological damage of favorite foods that they are unaware of what is happening to their bodies.

It is time that we stop dismissing common ailments, such as rheumatoid arthritis, as inevitable because of aging. Why not try eliminating certain foods from our diet to see if they are the cause? Some people who have followed the Whole30 program have seen improvements in their conditions.

Dallas and Melissa write, “The food you eat either makes you more healthy or less healthy. Those are your options.” The choice is yours. Sadly, I think that most of us don’t realize – or have forgotten – which foods are good and which are bad.

It Starts With Food explains why some foods that we are told are good for us really aren’t. (There are 20 pages of master references in the back of the book if you want to verify the information for yourself.)

I followed the diet for 5 days. My husband, who was not following the diet, lost 4 pounds in the first 3 days just from eating the Whole30 Compliant dinners that I made. Lucky guy!

I am convinced that this is the best diet out there. It’s not easy. Processed foods are everywhere. It takes work, but our health is worth it.
