Since May 5th is just around the corner, we have some great recipes to help you celebrate the international holiday, Stinko de Mayo. Established by journalist, Charles Memminger in 1988, Stinko de Mayo has become a rallying cry for those of us practicing a mayonnaise-free lifestyle. Although still not quite as popular as it’s sister holiday, Cinco de Mayo, Read more [...]

According to a report in The Lancet, one of the oldest and most prestigious medical journals, cardiovascular disease is a major health problem in Chile. It represents the leading cause of death among adults in that country. Combine this with the fact that Chile’s mayo consumption is 3rd per capita in the world, and it’s clear that The Lancet is jumping on the anti-mayo bandwagon. Check out The Daily Show’s entertaining report about Chileans’ obsession with the White Poison. Read more [...]
With a looming government shutdown, merely over a certain party’s concern about affordable healthcare for everyone, it’s time to really examine who is pulling the strings . You see, it goes a bit deeper than the Republican party.
Yes, it was named the Affordable Care Act to make health insurance more “affordable” for consumers. However it also makes it more affordable from the provider end as well. You see, the financial consequences of having a large uninsured class is that we are forced to treat people in Emergency Rooms, which is exponentially more expensive than a doctor’s office. Also, the media needs to start focusing more on the multiple provisions in the law related to “preventative care.” This will help stave off future illness and cost. (more on that a bit later) Therefore, it’s not really logical for Republicans, the so-called party of “budget hawks” to oppose such a cost-saving initiative. Read more [...]
More ammunition in our war against mayo, thanks to x-raytechnicianschools.org . The condiment from hell made their top 100 list of Most Unhealthy Food in the American Diet. I would like to have seen it placed a bit higher than 52 but still happy about the negative publicity. And it’s a double dose of negative press because tartar sauce,(infected with substantial amounts of mayonnaise) got placed at 56 as well! Of course, all of us fighting this battle have hated mayo instinctively at a very young age, based on taste, smell and consistency. When you are 5 years old, you are not conscious of any health factors like cholesterol and fat levels. But that doesn’t mean we should avoid using this angle to convert more people away from the devil’s Read more [...]
May 19th is being dubbed Food Revolution Day and the health conscious genius behind this endeavor would be Jamie Oliver, star of The Naked Chef, Jamie’s Kitchen, Jamie’s School Dinners and the Emmy award winning, Jamie’s Food Revolution. Believe it or not, food related diseases like obesity and diabetes kill more people than drugs, alcohol and war combined! This video is really a wake up call for taking control of our health, a problem that has no geographical boundaries. Since 1980, worldwide obesity has more than doubled in adults and tripled in children! It’s certainly not a problem that can be fixed overnight but the education and inspiration that will circulate from Food Revolution Day is definitely the right start. At HoldThatMayo headquarters, we fully support this grass-roots campaign cause we are all about helping people make smarter food choices. (and “smart food choices” would never include the empty calories, lurking within a jar of slimy mayo) Massive props Read more [...]
