Homemade Mayo

Homemade Mayo Recipe

Mayonnaise is one of those things that just makes everything taste better; chicken, bacon, eggs, veggies, you name it, it tastes better with mayo!

Unfortunately, due to the large scale production and subsidization of seed oils, we are hard pressed to find mayonnaise which doesn’t contain inflammatory seed oils. Even the ‘Olive Oil’ and ‘Whole Egg’ varieties are predominantly made with seed oils!

However, you can have your mayo and eat it too by making it yourself! This recipe will take you 10 minutes tops (even less if you use an electric beater) and I guarantee, once you make mayo yourself, you will never look back!

Oh just a quick note before you begin; this mayo is slightly runnier than commercial varieties but don’t be alarmed by this as store-bought mayo’s use industrial thickeners to provide the thicker texture.

Homemade Jerky

Homemade Jerky Recipe

I absolutely love jerky; it’s a delicious high protein, low carb, portable snack that doesn’t require an icepack when you take it for lunch! If you are like me and love jerky, you will have realized it’s extremely hard to find a good quality jerky that doesn’t contain sugars or seed oils or cost you and arm and a leg!

Given jerky is a very lean source of protein, I love to eat mine dipped in homemade mayo to ensure I’m getting enough fats in! Fortunately I have come up with this recipe that takes around 10 minutes to prepare then the dehydrator does all the work for you!

f you don’t have a dehydrator, don’t fret, you can use a conventional oven on the same temperature and it works just fine!

Paleo Raspberry and Coconut Gelatin Gummies

Paleo Raspberry and Coconut Gelatin Gummies Recipe

These gummies are a perfect for killing two birds with one stone – satisfying your cravings for a sweet paleo snack and healing your gut.

Ingredients raspberry-gummies

  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 8 tbsp grass-fed gelatin
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Method

    1. Depending on what you feel like, you can either blend the raspberries with the coconut milk or mix them in whole. Add the lime zest to the coconut and raspberry mix.
    2. Over a medium heat, combine the gelatin – one tablespoon at a time – and coconut and raspberry mix in a saucepan. Make sure the mix doesn’t boil.
    3. While the gelatin is dissolving, grease a glass pan (this will be used to set the gummies in).
    4. Once the gelatin is completely combined (make sure there are no lumps), let the mix cool to room temperature. Once cooled, pour the mixture into the greased glass pan, cover and place in the fridge.
    5. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Cut into squares and enjoy!
