Quoted from Drea
I tried mayo in the blender, with a hand-held mixer, in the food processor with no luck. The only way I was able to make it thick was to use my own forearm strength and a wire whisk.
From what I have read, & discovered, the secret to making it thick, is pouring the oil in a steady but thin stream...
I use the smaller of the two jugs on my Braun twin food processor, (which has a tiny outlet on top, through which to pour liquid) on the lowest speed...

Tried that. I used a squeeze bottle to dribble the oil into the bowl as I was whisking. I may try mayo again, though now that I'm not eating wheat or sugar, I don't have anything to spread the mayo on. Nori is now an avoid on my swami. *sniff*.

Possum, so you don't eat nuts? That might be something to try.....since they do have some omega 6 (some 3 also, but...)
KK....how great you guys made mayo!! Been wanting to do it. With some oil other than evoo, which is too strong.

I agree. Olive oil is too strong.  Can't wait to try it with grapeseed oil.  We think Lewis used too much oil and will try again.

Me, too. I missed out on home ec (btw, what does ec stand for, anyway? and did I even spell it correctly?). I think there are a lot of things that should be taught in school that aren't; specifically, wood working, home ec, how to manage finances, etc.

homemade mayo is def worth the effort - big iceberg lettuce leaves make a great wrap for fillings like tuna or salmon with mayo, but maybe lettuce is also avoid for u

I think that is gonna be an even more invaluable subject in generations to come - we just didn't have packet food (1 packet of chocolate biscuits on Sundays was the rare treat) so I learned heaps from my Mum, sisters, & Grandmother...
What is going to happen (is already happening) when families don't cook & prepared food is relatively cheap to buy...(although the price comes later)

Had to get up way too early to drive Lewis around today.  Up at 5:30 am, in the car by 7 am.  What was supposed to be a quick trip down to Santa Fe Springs (1 hr drive) turned into an all day disaster. Terrible, terrible drama, while my husband is on the phone chasing down parts for the next phase in this boat job... Buying stuff, waiting for it to get to the counter to get picked up....then realizing he needs something different so it's order all over again and wait another hour for it to get to the will-call desk.

Needless to day we were running out of time and had few options for late lunch food.  Ate at an Asian buffet and I had one of my "most" favorite dishes...whole shrimp (AVOID! most likely farmed) in salt.  Too many of the dishes had sauces that we're certain had bad ingredients too since we both don't feel to great right now.

The good news.  I didn't have any grain at all.

Yep, mostly dairy free I have the odd smidge of cream on occasions, & a splash of milk in a cup of tea (but rarely) Oh & ghee & butter...
But last week (due to my allergic reaction & subsequent stuffy nose) I had absolutely none of any, & didn't fancy even the thought of it...so maybe last night's indulgence was my body asking for something along those lines?
Hope you enjoyed your rumproast jaynee!!

Glad your days & meals are going well; well done KK on avoiding grain even out at a restaurant??!!

Aaah a glass of wine Drea??!! Nice

   Oh, I could wish THIS could have been true!   My life would have been so different...  For the most important things I had to wait until the turn of the century  

But the mayo story is true and the memory sweet

yaeli, why are you using Budwig's formula? for cancer? or cancer prevention? or something else? cuz it sounds easy enough that I could use it too, but what does it do?

Oh, and my roast was deelicious. with veggies and lots of au jus. (not gravy, cuz we're grainfree.) we need my husband (former potter) to make some large shallow bowls to eat meals like this in.

Right now for all three

but what does it do?
It's all in there: http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Budwig.html

Very simple, very compliant, very tasty and very filling.

More magic.
