To me, Whole 30 is more than a diet or a program that promises to break all your unhealthy habits. It is a self-discovery journey. I learned so many things about food and about myself throughout this program. Now I know how to make the difference between hunger and a simple craving; cravings that are so connected to my emotional state. I also learned how to identify ‘ bad’ ingredients in products by reading the lables, how much sugar is hidden in almost everything we buy from the store, how so many ‘unhealthy foods’ are being sold under the label ‘ healthy’ and many other things that I’ll talk about in a future blog post when I’ll finish the program ( Whole30 – Part two).
We usually buy our groceries from Whole Foods, which is my favorite grocery store. On those days when neither Noor or I feel like cooking we go there, get a rotisserie organic chicken ( so delicious) some potatoes that we roast in the oven and organic fire roasted red peppers. First time we ate this combination, I felt like something was missing from all these yummy tastes and that was mayonnaise, more specific, garlic mayonnaise. To me, the taste of chicken combined with garlic is just perfect!
So here it is, my latest discovery:
“Healthy homemade mayonnaise with avocado oil”
Easy, delicious and healthy!
- 2 small eggs or 1 large;
- 1 cup Avocado Oil;
- pinch of salt;
- optional : 7-8 cloves garlic minced;
Depending on your preferences you can add garlic, spices (oregano) or leave it as it is, plain. I did because I just loveee garlic.
- Add the eggs, the avocado oil and the salt.
- Using an immersion blender start blending the composition slowly from the bottom to the top. You want to make sure you blend it good until the oil is mixed well with the eggs.
- Add the garlic and mix everything with a spoon.
Done! Yes, it is that fast and easy.
