PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ME WHY IT WOULD BE SO BAD TO ADD JUST A BIT OF MAYONNAISE TO THEIR DAILY MEALS.
Well, maybe it’s easier if I start by explaining how mayonnaise is made.
Actually it’s quite a simple recipe, put some egg yolks (~320 kcal per 100gr) in a high container, then start blending the yolks and slowly add 1/8l oil per egg yolk (~900 kcal per 100gr), add seasoning as desired, done.
I think just by knowing the ingredients it’s easy to understand how high in calories mayonnaise can be.
As long it’s made from high quality ingredients, there is nothing wrong on eating a bit of mayonnaise once in awhile. But it definitely should not be part of your daily diet, and always consider that it brings quite some additional calories that have to be saved elsewhere from your intake of calories on that day.
