I was having dinner with my brother the other night when he remarked, “butter is so bad for you.” I was offended. If you know me, you know that butter is a major food group in our household. It’s always on the table for toast and a stick is usually on the counter top waiting to be fluffed with sugar for baking at any given moment. It’s also a food that’s been around for centuries, before obesity ever existed. So why does butter get such a bad rap?
I blame the 70’s and the tub of utterly disgusting margarine (sorry vegans). Real butter, especially the grass fed or European kind (my favorite is President), keeps you full longer, your blood sugar levels stable and most importantly, tastes absolutely delicious.
