Healthy Eating: Adding Healthy Fats To Your Diet

This week I’ve been working on creating healthy, easy recipes and looking for the same on the internet.  Resources abound but I’ve found a lot of what people call “healthy” doesn’t quite make the grade.  Low fat, high carb, bland and tasteless – that’s just a mess waiting to happen!  Fats can be good for you!  So here’s a great recipe I discovered at Wellness Mama for homemade mayonnaise that definitely passes the taste test! Even better, all the ingredients were already in my cupboard. So are you ready to have your mayo and eat it too?  Check it out:

All of this was in my cupboard or fridge.  So easy!

Ingredients
  • 4 egg yolks at room temperature
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice or apple cider vinegar

  • Salt and pepper
  • ⅔ cup olive oil
  • ⅔ cup coconut oil (warm) or other healthy oil (macadamia works well)
 Instructions
  1. Put egg yolks into blender or bowl and whisk/blend until smooth
  2. Add lemon juice or vinegar, mustard and spices and blend until mixed
  3. SLOWLY add oil while blending or whisking at low speed, starting with olive oil. Start with a drop at a time until it starts to emulsify and then keep adding slowly until all oil is incorporated.

Personally, I’m a coconut oil fan so this recipe was just up my alley.  I’m off to add it into homemade tuna salad.  Delicious lunches here we come! Have a fantastic healthy mayo recipe?  Share in the comments!
