One of the great things about working for ABC Fine Wines and Spirits in Orlando is that the company is so committed to the health of their employees. After all, they hired a metabolic health specialist (namely, me) to be available for all their employees at the touch of a few buttons. What could make healthcare easier than that?
Well, actually, I did have one idea that would really help me help every last one of my patients get even more healthy food into their lives. Providing ‘healthcare’ is one thing. But my real passion is helping people get healthy so they don’t need to be chronic healthcare consumers. And if you’ve listened to me on any podcast, or read anything I’ve written, you know what stands in the way of people being healthy. It’s public enemy number one: The Hateful 8 seed oils. Over the years, I’ve put together a lot of resources myself, most of them here on this website, but I could only go so far.
What I really wanted was access to an expert who could help them make the same foods they know and love but without any of the Hateful 8 toxic seed oils. In other words, everything I really need as a partner in the effort to make folks healthier can be found in the mind of a chef!
One of the big reasons I really needed to team up with a chef is because of MAYO!
Mayo is a key ingredient in so many foods that make life delicious. Everything from casseroles, to fast easy lunch (can of tuna plus mayo plus capers, yum), to deviled eggs and yes, Ranch dressing!
Unknown to most unsuspecting mayo lovers, the mayo in the store is a metabolism-breaking fat bomb, greased up with highly toxic seed oils.
And sadly this is true even if the mayo you buy says it’s made with olive oil; turn it around and read the ingredients to find out. Dollars to donuts (donuts fried in lard) you’ll see one or more of the Hateful 8 seed oils on the list along with olive oil, and usually before the olive oil, which means there’s more of the seed oil than the olive oil. But mayo is a key ingredient in so many delicious dressings, sauces, casseroles, desserts and….I could go on and on. I’ve been recommending folks buy mayo made with avocado oil instead. But mayo made with avocado oil costs 3 times as much for less than half the amount you normally get from a jar of mayo. So if you want to save tons of money and upgrade the nutritional profile of your dressings, sauces and easy salads, you can make your own mayo, in less than 2 minutes flat!
Chef Macy comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Not only does she make and oversee the creation of restaurant-quality meals at our store support center in Orlando, but she’s also available for teaching. We love our Ranch dressing, deviled eggs, tuna salads, egg salads down here in Florida and Macy told me she’s never made so much mayo in her life. Here she’s showing us how to whip up her famous seed-oil free, delicious, no-fail mayo in under two minutes. Check out the video on my YouTube Channel here.
