After being on the GAPS diet now for 6 months, the relief from my arthritis pain has spurred me to read and learn more about the affects of diet upon our bodies. Making my own mayonnaise is one change that has resulted from minimizing the amounts of partially hydrogenated fats in our diet.
Making your own mayonnaise is so easy – I should have started doing it much sooner! But, then again, there was no motivation to do it. I settled for the convenience of the store bought mayonnaise and never questioned the healthiness of it! Things have changed, however, I am no longer settling for the status quo! Homemade mayonnaise is creamier and richer in taste than its store bought counterpart not to mention healthier.
You may be a bit squirmish as you look at the recipe which calls for an egg – raw egg, that is. Since we have chickens, I am sure the eggs are fresh and I encourage you also to find a source for pastured eggs. Raw eggs are safe and very healthy for you when they are pastured. In the GAPS diet, raw egg yolk is introduced during the second stage because they are easily digested and absorbed quickly. Eggs provide wonderful nutrition!
