I am never buying mayonnaise again.
Since doing The Zero Excuses Challenge last year, and living through Paleo for that little while sans mayo, I was looking through blogs at the time to see if there was a way to make Paleo-friendly mayo.
There was a recipe on Everyday Paleo, but I never got around to trying it out.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about getting back into Paleo, but at the minute, I can’t actually afford the fruit and vegetables it’d require. I’m fine with protein – I’ve got plenty of fish and chicken and mince and stuff in the freezer – but fruit and veg? Can’t really afford much right now.
I know that when you’re doing Atkins, fruit isn’t really required because of the high carb content, but pretty much everything that’s gonna sustain me and fill out my meals right now in my kitchen are the following:
- Ainsley Harriott CousCous (More packs than I can count right now)
- A 5kg bag of basmati rice (full; I bought it yesterday, because if nothing else, I can make fried rice)
- Two or three half-empty packs of pasta
Definitely not Paleo or Atkins-friendly.
ANYWAY. Back to the mayonnaise.
I am never, ever buying mayonnaise again, because I didn’t make the Everyday Paleo recipe.
Instead, Kerri posted something on Twitter about a Paleo chicken salad, where she used her own Perfect Paleo Mayo recipe in it.
I checked out the Perfect Paleo Mayo Recipe over at FitViews, and I just…
Yes. Of course, I love garlic, so I added two cloves to Kerri’s original recipe, and it’s not even overly garlicky.
It’s just perfect. It’s the best mayonnaise I’ve ever tasted.
I will never buy store-bought mayonnaise again.
This way tastes so much better; you can make it to your own tastes. It’s full-fat, yeah, but it’s not got any of that crap they put into the other mayo that makes it last for weeks in the ‘fridge.
If you’ve got the ingredients, I suggest y’all give it a try. Add whatever you like in mayo: garlic or chipotle or hickory smoke or whatever. It will seriously be the best mayonnaise you ever taste.
