Ditch the Seed Oils and Make Homemade Mayonnaise

Today, we're throwing down the gauntlet against those sneaky, unhealthy seed oils lurking in our pantries and takeout containers. Get ready to spice up your life by ditching the heart clogging ingredients and diving headfirst into the delicious world of healthy fats!

Let's talk about those "found in everything" seed oils—soybean, corn, sunflower, and canola oil, we're looking at you! Sure, they're cheap and can handle the heat, but what they're not telling you is that they're packed with omega-6 fatty acids, the villains of inflammation.

Inflammation is that terrible silent killer...a precursor to disease.

Say goodbye to those processed, nutrient-stripped oils that wreak havoc on your health! Excessive omega-6s can throw your body into chaos, paving the way for heart disease, diabetes, and more. And don't even get me started on the sketchy chemicals and trans fats added during their shady refining process. It's time to kick these imposters to the curb!

There's a world of flavor waiting for you in the realm of healthy fats. Avocados, nuts, seeds, coconut oil, and olive oil are here to rescue your taste buds and your health!

These healthy fats are packed with all the good stuff—essential nutrients, antioxidants, and those oh-so-satisfying monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Zesty Homemade Avocado Oil Mayonnaise

Ready to take your taste buds on a wild ride? Whip up a batch of homemade avocado oil mayonnaise and never look back!


  • 1 cup avocado oil

  • 1 egg, at room temperature (this is key)

  • 1 tablespoon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic (optional)

  • Salt and pepper to taste (I use at least a teaspoon of salt)

  • 2T whey from yogurt or milk


  1. Toss that egg, mustard, and lemon juice (or vinegar) into a 15 ounce glass jar. Using a stick blender (yes, it's worth it)....keep the blender low at the bottom and don't move it until you have a creamy consistency.

  2. Now, here's where the magic happens—slowly drizzle in that glorious avocado oil while keeping the blender running. Watch as it transforms into a creamy masterpiece right before your eyes! After it feels mostly blended begin moving blender up and down the jar to get fully mixed.

  3. Feel free to adjust the acidity with more lemon juice if you're feeling zesty.

  4. you like dill or other spices? Get bold and sassy and experiment with culinary herbs that you have hopefully grown in your windowsill or garden.

  5. Transfer your homemade mayo into a snazzy container (or do like me and keep it in the glass jar) and pop it in the fridge. It'll keep for about a month (fermented) if you choose to skip the ferment part it will keep for about a week, but let's be real—it'll probably disappear way before then!

Welp, this is a spicy manifesto against seed oils and a fiery invitation to embrace the magic of healthy fats. Your taste buds deserve better, and so does your body!

So, let's kick those bland, unhealthy oils to the curb and embark on a flavor-filled adventure with avocados, nuts, and all their delicious friends. Trust us, your taste buds will thank you for it!

Stay Wild & Homesteady,
