Homemade Probiotic 5 Minute Mayonnaise (The Worlds Healthiest Mayonnaise!)
CATEGORIES: Dinners + Lunch GAPS Nutrition Recipes
Now I should probably add a caveat to this title. This is the world healthiest mayonnaise according to me only, I have not had some world expert hover over me as a make this. But this Homemade Probiotic 5 Minute Mayonnaise (The Worlds Healthiest Mayonnaise!) is honestly the best mayonnaise I have found or ever made.
But first what is the problem with standard mayonnaise?
- It is often make with cheap processed vegetable oil that cause inflammation and upset within tthe body. I avoid all processed vegetable oils that are low in quality, especially things like vegetable oil, soy bean oil, rapeseed oil and sunflower oil. This is the main reason I avoid shop bought stuff.
- It often does not contain any real source of eggs. Lots of may has powder eggs or dried eggs so you lose the nutrient density of good old fashion mayo. (FYI egg yolks are SO good for you!)
- It is a source of sugar. Now tiny bit of sugar is not a disaster for most of use but if you re focusing on healing the body you need to straggly have no sugar as it causes a whole host of problems in the body.
If you like me though you probably thought making you own mayonnaise was this incredibly laborious process where you spend half an hour standing at you mixer. Thankfully this is not the case.
This recipe is literally done in 5 mins and is incredibly nutrient dense. I am often saddened that there are only 3 meals in a day for I LOVE food a lot and I am a firm believer that food is medicine, so I endeavour to make all of my food as nutrient dense as possible so that my once sick body can keep on getting healthier and healthier.
So grab yourself some organic eggs, a food processor and enjoy. And if you anxious about eating raw eggs then here is what Dr Mercola says:
The salmonella risk is primarily heightened when the hens are raised in unsanitary conditions, which is extremely rare for small organic farms where the chickens are raised in clean, spacious coops, have access to sunlight, and forage for their natural food. The salmonella risk can be high in conventional eggs, however, which is why I advise against eating conventional eggs raw. One study by the British government found that 23 percent of farms with caged hens tested positive for salmonella, compared to just over 4 percent in organic flocks and 6.5 percent in free-range flocks. source
I personally think eating local, organic, happy egg yolks is incredibly healing for your body and I have never had any issue nor have any of my one2one clients who have tried them.
Why is this the healthiest mayo ever?
Not only does it have all the vitamin goodness of the egg yolk, it is also landed with olive oil and is probiotic (I am a BIG fan of getting for probiotics into our diets which you can read more about here) so it is
the perfect combination of fats, proteins, fat soluble vitamins and probiotic GOODNESS!
(here is a good probiotic to use – find the other ingredients here)
Great for those on GAPS, SCD or other healing protocols.
So make some sweet potato chips and get dunking into the worlds healthiest mayonnaise!
