I take medication to “thin” my blood. Since Vitamin K boots the clotting of blood I have to avoid foods rich in that micronutrient.
That means no cabbage, spinach, broccoli, collards - pretty much everything dark green. And a gallimaufry including things like bananas and green tea. And mayonnaise.
I didn’t know about the last until during my regular blood test my reading was far from what it is supposed to be. I tried to recall everything I’d eaten, finally recalling tuna fish salad sandwiches.
I can buy mayo made from olive oil but that is expensive and isn’t sold in a reduced calorie version. I do miss my mayonnaise, particularly when I want to make potato salad.
