Why on earth would I make mayo when I can pick it up so easily at the store?
Because the vegetable oils and preservatives in processed food like mayo can really cause havoc on our bodies. These types of oils and sugar can cause oxidation and inflammation in your body. NOT good - See this video to learn more.
I was pretty excited when I saw the the cover of a bottle of store-bought "Mayo with Olive Oil", but if you turn it around to read the label. You find it has the same old bad oils in it among some other unsavory things....like sugar. Why does sugar need to be in mayo?
Let's just say there's more bad stuff than good stuff. If you really want scratch your head for awhile, do a Google search on "what is natural flavor." Ick!
...So let's just make it ourselves...shall we...

I'm a snacker. I wish I could just stick with the normal 3 meals a day, but I like to snack, so I had to find healthy options that wouldn't keep calling me back for more.
I love Skinny Pop White Cheddar popcorn and this is a go to snack of mine, but I have to say it is hard to stop with one serving. My favorite snack is this little combo:
I put 1/2 cup of Frozen cherries in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. (you might like to keep them frozen...in the summer that's a yummy cool treat)
I add a 1/2 cup of Fage Plain 2% Greek Yogurt.
I buy the 2 cup size and score the top to let me know what 1/2 cup looks like.
I put that on top of my semi-warmed cherries and top the whole thing with .5 ounce of raw pecans.
I have used this little combo as a snack, breakfast, lunch, or desert.
