    Default Why Butter Is A Health Food

    Butter is a health food. There, I said it. I don’t just love butter because it tastes better than margarine. I don’t just love it because I think it’s a healthier alternative than margarine. I actually believe, bones to britches, that butter is good for you.

    The other day someone left this comment on a Facebook post of mine, “Only an idiot would believe butter is actually a health food. Yes, it’s better than margarine, but it is by no means good for you.” Only an idiot? Really?

    Name-calling aside, let’s use our brains. Shall we? What makes butter a health food?

    Butter is More “Heart-Healthy”
    After years of being told that margarine was more “heart-healthy” than butter, we’re now discovering in long-term studies that the science simply just doesn’t back up the claim.

    Butter surely is one of the four basic foods groups!

    I love butter and use a lot of it. It's natural, whereas with margarine...not so much. I've made my own butter off and on over the years, which is easy and kind of fun, but there are now some very good brands of butter available. KerryGold is probably my favorite.

    But it must be organic. Don't know where I can buy organic cream, but I can buy two or three brands of butter.
