Anybody care to thread drift back to the subject?

I love the idea of using avocado instead of mayo.

The fact that avocado does not keep well is not a good reason for keeping mayo on the boat instead. I say just eat it. Less need for refrigeration if you just eat it. I do keep avocado on the boat as much as possible. But not the same ones. I consume them, while my jar of mayo sits in the fridge separating. The last time I used it, I had to stir it first. It had not gone bad, but was not very appealing.

You have misinterpreted my meaning there. The words on the toothpaste that I have are not as serious sounding as the ones on yours that you quoted. It was the words that were "alarmist" not your quoting of them.

Misinterpretations are part of forum interaction. It makes it interesting.

Re: Mayo

" The CDC thinks along these lines. "Four modifiable health risk behaviors—lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumption—are responsible for much of the illness, suffering, and early death" I would add to that list, The fallacy of knowing better."


It's intellectually dishonest to use the CDC as a source and then add to their information.

Dear Sav

Do not give in and get low self esteem from this. Stick to your guns and do not clean your teeth at all, then go into Aldi every day and tell them that they are to blame for your rotting teeth.

Abby.

Re: Mayo

From About.com:

Why Do People Enjoy Being Internet Trolls?

Ans: it is a kind of power rush or ego trip to be a troll. Being online is a place that is largely free of perceived consequences... an insecure person can get a sense of power online, without ever having to face someone directly. With the Internet being a world of imagination and fantasy for some, cowardly users can forge an alter ego for themselves, and act out their feelings of anger and inadequacy. It's sad and unfortunate that our advanced communications also brings out the darker side of many people.

Re: Mayo

One of the first things that struck me in the eye, when I started working in Africa was the bottles of mayo on the table, in 90+ degree heat. Which leads me to wonder if it won't rot, should you be putting it into your body? Used to be when I was growing up that you had to be very careful to keep mayo refrigerated or death could result, and we were always wary of the potato salad.

I think the risk may have been salmonella in raw eggs (and still is with homemade mayo). Commercial mayo is made with pasteurised eggs.

Re: Mayo

Cool! I learned something today, thanks! I still don't trust stuff that is supposed to be food and it doesn't rot.

Me too generally .
It's not just the preservatives, but the high trans fat level (eg commercial cakes and cookies).
