Merlin's Stupidly Easy Spicy Mayonnaise
1 whole egg
3/4 cup Avocado Oil
1 tbsp Frank's Red Hot sauce (get the original, all of the new variants have crappy additives in them. the original is just cayenne peppers, vinegar, water, salt and garlic)

Crack the egg into a glass bowl, add the oil and hot sauce. Place a stick or immersion blender directly over the egg yolk. Blend on High. When you see the emulsion coming out from the sides of the blender, stir it around to incorporate the oil and hot sauce. See? Stupidly Easy!

Here's a YouTube video of Merlin's wife Lindsay showing the method:

Courtney's Snackmonster (Grain-Free) Granola

Dry ingredients:
1c almond meal (coarse ground such as from Trader Joes)
½ c flaxseed meal
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp sea salt- more to taste
1 c shredded unsweetened coconut
¼ c sunflower seeds (or any other seeds/nut of a similar size such as pumpkin seeds, cashew pieces, slivered almonds)
~2 c mix unroasted, unsalted nuts (combo of almonds, pecans, walnuts is my favorite)
1 big handful of dried wild blueberries (or other dried fruit diced up)

Wet ingredients:
1 Tbsp vanilla
½ c coconut oil in solid form
¼ c + 1 Tbsp honey

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a large baking sheet with foil (this makes for easier clean up).

2. Mix all dry ingredients (EXCEPT dried fruit) in a large bowl.

3. Melt coconut oil in microwave. Mix in the honey and vanilla and then stir into the dry until everything is moistened.

4. Use a spatula to spread granola evenly on the baking sheet.

5. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Gently stir and flip in sections.

6. Increase temperature to 325 degrees.

7. While oven temp increases sprinkle your dried fruit over the just flipped granola and press down into the granola with a spatula.

8. Return to the oven for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it, you don’t want it to darken too much and taste burnt.

9. Once removed from the oven let it cool, this is what will let it get crunchy.

10. Enjoy over full-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, with almond milk, or just by itself!

A shift in thinking is happening right before our very eyes when it comes to what we think about nutrition and health.

We still have a long way to go which is why we are committed to being here for you on Friday's discussing the health news that people are talking about. If you're a regular listener, then you know there's usually more to the story than what is being shared in the mainstream media.

WHY WON'T THIS WALMART ICE CREAM SANDWICH MELT IN THE SUN?

http://youtu.be/SozZHZAWS64

In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie welcome in a pair of awesome guest friends in an Indianapolis, Indiana-based Paleo food truck owner and operator named Shelby Malaterre from "Caveman Truck" (who submitted a recipe used in Jimmy's new book Keto Clarity) and a Missouri-based registered dietitian in Lindsey Jay. Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Shelby, and Lindsey give us their thoughts and opinions about some recent health headlines, including a disturbing look at why Walmart's ice cream sandwiches don't melt in the sun, how so many consumers are confusing the term "local" with "organic," how low-carb diets have supposedly gotten things all wrong, a bestselling diet book author does a 180-degree change of his position on consuming dietary fat, why people in Europe don't refrigerate their eggs and how American eggs would be illegal there, and new stem cell research the can "reverse" heart disease and the surprising diet of the man with atheroschlerosis in the story. Plus, we've got an awesome jicama taco recipe from Shelby and a cauliflower taco shell recipe from Lindsey at the end of the show. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!
