Butter is bad...

Don't cook with butter...

I say Phooey!

 It's already been proven that real butter is better for you than it's lethal fake cousins – margarine.

It's already been proven that cholesterol has nothing to do with heart attacks.

It's a fact that your body needs some fat to properly absorb and utilize the nutrients in vegetables.

Now I'm not advocating eating a stick of butter. You don't want to start loading up on fats. Your body only needs a little.

But what really burns me are these people putting the skull and cross bones on cooking with butter.

Let's do a little math here.

If you put a tablespoon of butter in a pan and cook 4 pork chops in that butter – how much butter do you actually ingest? Heck, most of it is still left in the pan.

I use a whole pound of butter on a 24 lb. Turkey. Yes, I do. So, that comes out to 1 1/3 tablespoons per pound. Except at least 2 cups are left in the pan and disposed of – never to be eaten.

If a couple tablespoons of butter is all that stand between your family shoving the green beans around the plate, or loving green beans – c'mon! Throw in some heart healthy slivered almonds too!


It does not have to taste bad to be healthy.
