    Omega-3 Mayo as fat source


    I'm trying to find ways to keep my fats in besides nuts and nut butters. Oils can get messy and dont go well when carrying meals to work. Thinking about making a tuna/salmon/tilapia "salad" with Omega-3 mayo from Smart Balance and adding in cruciferous vegetables like celery, broccoli, cauliflower.

    Anyone ever try using mayo during contest prep?

    Make your own mayo. Easy to do, and you can customize the fat type. I personally use macadamia nut oil.

    I respond well to sesame. I'll look into it.

    What about avocado? I prefer to stay away from any condiments except maybe natural mustard, but during prep mayo is never used. However looking at the nutrition facts on Veganaise, it seems to be slightly better than the regular stuff

    My thought was mayo is too processed and has too many variables in there that could negatively effect prep. Everything must be simple, I thought to use haas avocado (not florida). Making my own mayo is a good idea too but it's such a tedious process.

    I dont see any problem with using the mayo that is either made with olive oil or omega 3's. While prep isnt time to really "experiment" per say, my feelings are as long as you keep things the same there should be no issues.

    To me its like using white rice or brown rice. If you have used white rice your entire off season and your body does well with it there is no reason to change it out during prep.

    ^That's an idea. So perhaps for this off season I'll add it into my regimen. I'll keep it around when cutting weight and play around to see what happens.

    The trial and error of bodybuilding. As frustrating as it is exciting.

    Making mayonnaise with sesame oil is not a good option, in my opinion. The flavor would be overwhelming, and the viscosity of the oil would prove difficult in achieving the correct consistency.

    Did it with wasabi and sesame once. Came out fantastic with a ginger curry tuna steak. Like I said its tedious and easy to over do on emulsifying.
