2 Minute Mayo for PCOS
2 Minute Mayo
Condiments, especially mayos, dressings, marinades and pestos are some of my favourite things to make. They are so easy and so much healthier for PCOS than store bought varieties.
PCOS is an inflammatory condition. This means that our immune system is constantly on high alert. It’s been shown in studies that the food we eat can cause inflammation.
Two foods that can cause inflammation are High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) and industrial seed oils. Industrial seed oils include corn, canola, soybean, vegetable, sunflower and rice bran oils.
If you look on the ingredient list of the dressings, sauces, marinades, pestos and mayonnaises in your fridge, you will likely find these.
But don’t go without, it’s so easy to make your own without the extra sugar and use avocado or olive oil instead.
I personally find the olive oil taste a bit too much for dressings, so I prefer the neutral avocado oil. This mayo takes 2 minutes to make, is so deliciously thick and has ingredients that you’ll find in any supermarket.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 1 ½ cups
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dijon mustard
½ tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 ¼ cups avocado oil
Place all ingredients in a narrow bowl or jug, then mix with a wand mixer (as it’s much faster than a food processor and whips the oil).
If you only have a food processor then you’ll need to drizzle the oil in slowly.
It should thicken into a creamy mayo.
Add more oil to create a thicker mayo or hot water if you prefer a lighter consistency
Store in a glass jar and secure with a lid. It will last for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
