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.
