Butter

Butter makes everything better!

Butter is not your enemy.

Fat does not make you fat.

Kids need good cholesterol to develop properly.

I buy Kerry Gold pastured butter that is from cows that graze on green grass and are not treated with hormones.  Butter also works as a fat catalyst to absorb nutrients properly.

My boys ask for tabs of butter as they run through the kitchen. I am always trying to find ways to get more fat into these boys so a drive-by butter bite is ok with me. Butter with vegetables is a fabulous way to get kids and those picky adults to find vegetables more palatable but it also helps your digestive system to absorb the nutrients available in the vegetables.

I use ghee for cooking and it adds a fabulous color and taste without burning like traditional butter. I highly recommend it when you don’t want a coconut flavor and want higher temperatures that are not that appropriate for olive oil.

Butter, being a fat, helps to slow the absorption of quick burning carbohydrates as well. Lather that potato or a thick slice of yummy sourdough with butter and sprinkle them with salt. You will stay satiated longer and the fat helps to stabilize your blood sugar levels when eating carbs.

 

Enjoy~
