  1. My father uses tons of pepper and tabasco on everything. He is 89 years old and still works full time and exersices.

  2. I have a question about Dr. Perricone’s recommended foods:

    I love mayonnaise, especially in the Provençal form called Aïoli, which is mayonnaise with garlic.

    I make it myself, either by hand or using by using my beloved French food processor from Magimix, which makes this wonderful condiment on a slow speed in order not to oxidize the fragile oils.

    I always use an equal mixture of organic extra virgin olive oil from Italy and organic Danish extra virgin rapeseed oil giving it a mild taste and, of course, giving my body lots of healthy Omega – oils.

    Naturally, I use organic eggs, organic mustard and organic mustard, sea salt and organic pepper when making it.

    Is this something Dr. Perricone would recommend?

    • This sounds like a good alternative to unhealthy processed mayonnaise found on most grocery store shelves. With that said, we recommend you use this in moderation.
