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 [...]
For those hard-core mayo haters, like myself, we really question the tuna fish requirement since it is soaking in oil anyway. We scoff at the notion that a sandwich requires the white slime when the tomato can moisturize just as well without making the bread soggy. (not to mention, a longer shelf life for any uneaten portion) And last but not least, we are completely offended by utilizing the liquid goo as a filler for crab cakes and horse radish in place of the 100% real thing. However, for those M-heads, set in their ways, not questioning what they put in their bodies, well, to win those hearts, minds and stomachs we need to go beyond preaching the evils of mayonnaise. We need to offer a valid mayo substitute. So this post will focus on the top 3 weapons in our arsenal to help Read more [...]
The world famous Akron, OH rock duo, the Black Keys, refused to sell out to the evil mayonnaise industry during their early days on tour. Big Mayo was ready to throw tons of money to these musicians who were literally starving artists at the time, but they stood their ground. So at HoldThatMayo headquarters, we want to commend the Black Keys for
Rachael Ray, the TV personality, businesswoman, author, celebrity chef and most importantly, card carrying member of the World Wide I Hate Mayonnaise Club, was sneak attacked by the featured guest on her talk show! Katherine McPhee. the star of the NBC series Smash, is now officially the enemy of the mayo resistance as she tried to Pearl Harbor our fearless leader on national television with mayonnaise.(at the 2:38 mark) Talk about lack of respect for
Mayo has that rare combination of tasting really gross and being really bad for you. (Usually those two factors are indirectly proportional) It’s difficult to quantify bad taste since that tends to be more instinctive , at least for those who have not been brainwashed by the fear of a dry sandwich. But in terms of being unhealthy, we can take a look at the tale of the tape and abruptly end the argument. Let’s start with the #1 competitors, ketchup and mustard. One serving of standard yellow mustard, has no calories, no fat, no carbs, no cholesterol and only 55 grams of sodium. Hallelujah. In moderation, there’s really nothing wrong with ketchup as well. For example, Heinz tomato ketchup only provides 15 calories, 4 grams of
Once not to love about a guy sacraficing his body in the name of a plaque on a restaurant wall of fame or perhaps a free tshirt, just for eating some ridiculous amount of food. Hence the alure of the Travel’s channel hit show, Man vs. Food, where the host, Adam Richman, combines eating , travel, and the wide world of sports . The challenges are so intense that the food many times is the victor, yet Adam would always make himself available for the post game press conference. (looking as battered as a prized fighter who just went 15 rounds.) However, just like any great athlete , there comes a time when your stomach and bowels can not compete at the same competitive level so it was sad news when Adam announced his retirement from competitive eating. The official response was “ after doing 59 food challenges for the show, the “spectacle
The Animal Kingdom has a voice online as well. (and since animals are all foodies at heart, we should really listen to what they have to say!) I love how this cat instinctively knew that mayo is not food but the enemy! So massive props to our feline friend for expressing himself on YouTube. He can be our official mascot for the war on mayonnaise. I love being supported by the species known for discriminating taste. Our culinary army continues to grow. Enjoy!
OK, I have nothing against mayo, except that I can’t stand to eat it, and I suspect that it goesrancid very easily, That said, like most Bostonians, I like lobster, but I hate picking one apart. The alternative is a lobster roll. There are 2 kinds of lobster rolls: those made with melted butter and those made with mayo. The problem is that I can’t seem to find a single restaurant in the Boston area that serves a butter-based lobster roll. — This is what we call choice.
Well M, one great thing about your area as that you have acccess to affordable lobster. (who knew a bug could be so delicious) I have always avoided the rolls cause there is an adhesive involved, and the mayo industry wants their slimy product to always be that adhesive. I’d imagine butter would work great since most people like to dip fresh lobster in hot butter anyway. It’s ashame that mayo weezled its way into the picture. I have mentioned several times how it’s sacriledge to combine
As we approach the end of our summer hiatus, the mayo fight has been cranked up even another notch. I am excited to announce that scores of groups have been popping up left and right on Facebook and MySpace, bringing together people from all walks of life who share a common enemy. Many of these group memberships are in triple digits, some even four. If you are searching for these holy armies on any of the social networks, it's best to do a key word search that's a bit more specific than “mayo.” You see, in addition to being Satan's spew, Mayo also happens to be a county in Ireland and an obscure college in India. (although not obscure enough to prevent their annoying alumni from organizing facebook groups for their ill-conceived university name.) You will even come across a few sick groups who have a “love of mayo” theme but please don't be scared. This is actually another positive function of social networking in our War Against Mayo, which we learned way back in the Godfather I and II. (“Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.”) So for a more targeted search, it's best to add words like “sucks” , “hate” and “anti” against the terms “mayo” and “mayonnaise.” (Some groups spell out the full name of the beast.) So for example, some successful searches would be “mayo sucks” and “hate mayonnaise” You will be amazed about how many groups come up during these filtered searches who think the same way as we do. One of the more successful hate groups on Facebook is based out of Malibu California.(their logo is above) They actually organized a huge protest in front of the Heinz factory in downtown Los Angeles on
