Hello to you in the LA Pachamama community! I just learned about this group from Pat Usner, who was a longtime staff member of P.A. in the bay area (she is just retiring). I've been wanting to get involved in helping some causes I care about, locally - ecology, nature, native communities. I'd love to get involved in helping the mountain lions, here in the LA region, building the wildlife corridors and such, but have had no success connecting with anyone to get involved. Can someone help me get connected? I want more than just to volunteer clearing hiking paths, I want to work as an activist or advocate in some way... Thank you!
I am boycotting soy bean oil because the Amazon rainforest is being burnt in order to grow soybeans.
This Homemade Mayonnaise takes less than 10 minutes to make, and it tastes SO much better than most of the brands at the store. Fresh is definitely better when it comes to mayonnaise, and you only need 5 ingredients!
Total Time 10 minutes
1 large egg at room temperature*
1.25 cups olive oil** NOT extra virgin
1/2 tsp ground mustard seed
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice at room temperature
Place ¼ cup of oil in a food processor, and add the egg, ground mustard, and salt.
Process thoroughly, for about 30 seconds, until combined and pale yellow in color.
With the blender running, slowly drizzle in the remaining oil until the mixture is emulsified and thick. Adding the oil slowly makes for a creamier mayonnaise. The total pouring time to aim for should be 60-90 seconds.
With the food processor still running, add the lemon juice, and mix briefly, for only about 5-10 seconds, until incorporated.
The mayonnaise is now ready to be used. Enjoy!
Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
*Try to remember to pull an egg out an hour or two before making the recipe. If you forget, you can put the egg in a glass of warm water for about 10 minutes instead.
**You can use any neutral oil you'd like here. I like a light olive oil as my first choice, as well as sunflower oil. Avocado oil is trendy because it's healthy, but I find the taste to be terrible and don't recommend it. Make sure not to use extra virgin olive oil here, because it will make the mayonnaise bitter and the flavor is too strong.
Recipe adapted from the Whole30 method in It Starts with Food.
This makes about 1.5 to 1.75 cups of mayonnaise.

Hello new friends!
I live in Orange County and am curious if there are other OC-ers who are a part of the LA Community that would like to also create an additional smaller community for more local access?
Thanks again for your inclusion! Excited to get to know you and build impactful change together.
Some of us are going to
