Hold the Mayo/Salad Dressing, Pass the Vegenaise please!

You may have noticed in the Summer Black-eyed pea Salad recipe that I posted earlier, I used Vegenaise versus traditional mayonnaise or salad dressing. The original version of Vegenaise is made with Canola Oil. However, I used the Grapeseed Oil version. Science is showing healthier benefits with grape seed oil, which offers health benefits that include improving the look of your skin and lowering cholesterol levels. Your list of nutritious alternative to many other types of oils should include grapeseed oil.

We should all be looking to maintain high levels of antioxidant intake which boost our immune system and helps prevent our cells from becoming cancerous. Grapeseed if loaded with antioxidants, with no cholesterol and no sodium, but it's the light, nutty taste that brings out the flavor in foods. Just think - grape seed oil for the hair, grape seed oil for mosquitoes, and the list goes on......

A carnivore friend of mine told me that it tasted like mayo to him. Hmm....Go ahead to your local health food store and buy a small jar. If they don't have it, ask them to get it - they are there for you ;~) Try it and tell me what you think.

Yours in health,
