Paleo Mayo Recipe

I call this brain boosting because my recipe calls for MCT oil, but you can substitute other oils if you don’t have MCT.

What is MCT oil and why use it in my mayo?

The benefits of MCT oils are many, but in particular,  it helps with appetite suppression, cognitive function, and mitochondrial health, which we’re now learning is the best way to decrease aging (which is awesome because botox ain’t cheap).

But bottom line, your regular mayonnaise is made with cheap soybean oil (SO not cool) and Calcium Disodium EDTA (basically, poison). It’s probably not enough to kill you if you’re just putting a little on your sandwich, but if you can avoid poison, look younger, thinner and healthier, hey, why not?
