    the total fat for 2 eggs and 2tbs of mayo is 11g but the fat for the mayo by itself is 58g? I'm confused. I need to keep my fat at 50g or under and this is contradicting.

    Hi I found this under "asparagus recipes". While there's a nice picture of asparagus there is no recipe

    @Shara Why did you take the yolk out? If you take that out all you are left with is egg white and mayonnaise, plus any vegetable that you decided to have with it.

    If you click the serving size, you get how many portions you like from 1 to 10!

    It says serving size is 4. ?

    How on earth did you get 58g of fat in two tablespoons - which are desertspoonfuls in England, not tablespoons - of mayo? I make my own mayo. Dead easy.

    How much asparagus can one eat? You don't say and it's in the photo. And also you say avocado is optional - how much? Prefer to have the measurements in grammes or ounces, not in approximations. I have to budget when I live alone. Thanks.

    That's going to depend on your carb threshold. Asparagus is keto/lchf friendly though! Again, the amount of avocado is also going to depend on your personal preference and carb threshold. Avocados come in all different weights.

    The word "mayonnaise" in the ingredient list is a hyperlink to our recipe. We recommend avoiding most commercial mayos as they have inflammatory vegetable oils.
