Who does not like mayonnaise?

This condiment goes great with turkey, BLTs and avocado sandwiches.

Even though mayonnaise is almost anyone’s go-to condiment when preparing a sandwich, here is a little wakeup call for all those who are real mayonnaise lovers.

I know that it tastes delicious and adds a unique flavor to your sandwich, but store-bought mayonnaise is worse than you can imagine.

It contains many harmful ingredients that can only cause health complications.

I’m not trying to say to cut mayonnaise from your diet, but to include a healthier version of it into your diet.

For that purpose, today, we will tell you how to prepare your own homemade mayonnaise using only healthy ingredients.

Well, you can see that this so-called “real mayonnaise” is packed with GMOs.

When GMOs were introduced in 1996, the chronic diseases in the American population increased from 7% to 13%.

GMOs caused organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, infertility and accelerate aging.

These foods leave toxins inside our body that can result in more complicated problems.

Calories, Fats, Sodium and Cholesterol

Only 1 tablespoon of store-bought mayonnaise has 90 calories.

People who are constantly eating mayonnaise are not aware of the fact that they are overshooting their recommended caloric intake.

1 tablespoon contains

10 grams of fat,

5 mg of cholesterol and

90 milligrams of sodium.

It is known that excess fat can cause diabetes and other heart problems.

Too much cholesterol can build up in your arteries, which in turn will cause heart disease and stroke while too much sodium can cause blood pressure.

Fortunately, you don’t have to cut mayonnaise from your diet.

We have some healthy versions of mayonnaise that you can prepare in your own home!

5 Healthy Homemade Mayonnaise Recipes
It is very easy to prepare a homemade mayonnaise.

It has a better taste than most versions found in the stores.

The best part is that you can use only healthy ingredients and avoid the refined vegetable oils use in most store-bought brands.

This is a very easy recipe to prepare your own homemade mayonnaise:

Needed Ingredients:

2 raw egg yolks (remove the white)
1 cup quality oil like avocado oil or light olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
Sea salt or Himalayan salt

First of all, all the ingredients should be at room temperature.

You should put the egg yolks in a blender or food processor.

Add salt and water and start blending while slowly pouring the oil.

After you get a thick consistency, add lemon juice and slowly mix with a spoon.

Keep in mind that egg yolks in mayo are consumed raw.
