  • Sub for mayo

    Hey there just wanted to know how anybody feels bout vegenaise!

  • #2
    It has soy in it, right? And seed oils? Vegenaise just feels too processed to me. Whatcha got against mayonnaise? It's just eggs and oil and easy to make yourself.

      I tried it once--zero flavor whatsoever.

      My usual substitute is Fage yogurt (whole). I also make mayo with virgin avocado oil but only for special occasions since I don't use it fast enough.

        Mashed avocado with olive oil and lemon or lime juice is nice, if you don't want to make mayo, or you want a vegan version.

          making mayo is easy and I make it almost every day either from palm oil or from olive oil.

          Avoiding all seed oils is a very important part of good paleo eating. Vegetable oil is really bad for you as it is loaded with PUFAs. Better to have a good fat that you're putting into your body.

            I buy the mayonnaise with canola oil in it (regular mayo found at the grocery store uses soybean oil). I find canola oil less offensive because it's made of rapeseed and/or mustard seeds.

            Just eggs and oil, no need to substitute on Paleo me thinks.
            Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

              No reason not to just make your own with Olive Oil or EVOO if you like the taste.

                  I don't know in what context you want to replace mayonaisse, but for most mixtures where you need it for like a "salad" (like tuna) I just use a mashed up avocado, and it's actually better. It has everything that mayo offers nut tastes better.
                  "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

                    I actually like and use soy-free Vegenaise. It's high in MUFAs, low in PUFAs, and the only questionable ingredient is the pea protein which I'm sure is a trivial amount per serving. It tastes pretty good for being egg-free. It's REALLY expensive, though. $7 for a small jar.

                      If someone has a problem with eggs but still wants to stay Primal (no seed oils or soy yuckiness) this is an option.

                          I'm just not a fan of isolated anything. It's probably harmless in small amounts.

                            Peas are also legumes. Not primal.

                              I'm pretty sure Mark has given a Primal pass to peas and string beans.
