Maybe you could make your own mayonnaise, with olive oil serving as the oil source? I’ve never tried it myself but I don’t use mayo to begin with (I stick with butter if I want a fatty condiment).
i could probably use eggs and olive oil but i’d have no idea how many calories i was using
whats so bad about this stuff?
1 tbsp. has
fat: 10g fat
it only has 1.5g of saturated fat meaning the rest is “good fat”. doesnt look any worse than olive oil. i mean i’m sure it doesnt have the health benefits of olive oil but whats actually wrong with it, the soybean oil?
Most of the fat is polyunsaturated, and most of that is omega-6… even if it’s kept from becoming rancid (which polyunsaturated fats are prone to), I’d be a lot quicker to call omega-6 fats “bad” than saturated fats.
why would omega 6’s be bad? isnt that just because in general americans get too much? but my diet is pretty balanced in terms of that i think so maybe it wouldnt be as bad?
It’s tricky… honestly, I should probably do a lot more research before I actually give any recommendations. I’m certainly hearing a lot about the pro-inflammatory effects of omega-6’s, but I want to look into the scientific research that’s out there regarding health effects.
I don’t think you can ever go wrong going with monounsaturated fats over omega-6 polyunsaturated, though (olive oil is ~74% mono and macadamia nut oil, which is remarkably tasty [in my opinion] is ~80%).
