  1. Regarding the genetics of physic ability, shamanism, the archetype for all things psychic, runs in families.

  2. Coat a boiled cauliflower head in primal mayo and season, then sprinkle with cheese and bake for 15 minutes. Delicious.

  3. Avocado Mayo:. Great for fish sticks! Put mayo in a plastic bag with cut of fish, squish around until all are coated in mayo, roll in a mixture of crushed pork rinds, parmesan cheese, and smoked paprika or other spices. Cook in air fryer. Serve with chipotle lime Avocado mayo. Yum yum!

  4. I coat salmon and/or steelhead with Primal Mayo, sprinkle with fresh dill and bake in the oven. Yum!

  5. To peel garlic cloves easily, I place them in a microwave for about 14 seconds ( 4 to 6 cloves ). Works great !

  6. Coat chicken breasts with a mix of Primal Kitchen Mayo, some good stone ground mustard, dijon mustard and a bit of honey if you want. Grill and baste with the dressing as you grill. Have this chicken with a salad and use the sauce as a dressing. It’s delicious stuff.

  7. Searing a stake in mayo?? Great idea! I can’t wait to try it.

  8. Coating wild salmon steaks in mayo and frying it up in a hot pan is an old trick. It tastes fabulous. Believe me.

  9. My uncle Kenny always slathered his salmon (the large half salmon) in Mayo and herbs before baking. He only had conventional stuff (he passed away before avocado oil became a thing), but his salmon was some of the best!

  10. A light coating of mayo on chicken, pork or fish then seasoning blend of choice, then parmesan cheese and/or almond flour and bake or broil.

  11. I have been making my own mayonnaise for several years to avoid nasty things in store bought Mayo. Never dawned on me to add spices to it. I use avocado oil usually but sometimes I use coconut oil or olive oil. I am not a fan of mayonnaise but do use it when cooking. I have coated chicken in it and added fresh rosemary and grilled it. I just got a smoker and going to smoke a pork roast in it next weekend. Cook the day before and let it cool and rip it into shreds with my homemade bbq sauce. Pure heaven. I wonder if I coated it with mayonnaise before wrapping it tight in foil if that would make it extra special?

  12. Thanks for the link to the article on where covid came from. I had dismissed the lab escape idea mainly because I couldn’t imagine people being so rotten. Sad to hear the USA was/is? funding the Wuhan lab to play with corona viruses.

  13. People don’t grill enough carrots.

    Absolutely right. 🙂 And carrot halvah. Gajar ka Halwah to be exact.
