To tell the truth, Smart Balance wasn't all that bad. It suited me OK for years, but like I said, the real McCoy is surely superior, IMHO.

I have always used unsalted butter but have discovered salted butter. I use very little salt in my diet but like salted butter on my toast.


I can not tell the difference when I use salted or non-salted so I use non.. Some recipes call specifically for one or the other.

We’ve used nothing but butter for around 30 years. We buy the “salted” butter, as we’ve read that it keeps longer in the freezer.....and we keep an inventory of around 20 pounds.

We believe that butter is far less detrimental to our health than manmade products.

We (I more than she) eat pretty much an old fashion normal diet. I have 3 eggs (over easy) cooked in bacon grease, one or two (size dependent) potatoes for hash browns, and bacon, almost every morning for breakfast! This diet may shorten my life......but, I plan to enjoy good food until the end! memtb

X2. I’m not concerned about eggs, either, as I believe they’ve been maligned unfairly. Many people are concerned about cholesterol but from what I’ve learned, cholesterol isn’t as big of a problem as people think. The body needs cholesterol to some degree . The health of the brain Is one example (the brain contains a large amount), and I believe I’ve read that the nerve coverings (myelin) need it as well. I try to keep up on health issues.

Yup. +30 years DW and I had our own spreads. She used one of those tub-oleo brands, I used butter sticks, and she was constantly ragging me about how much fat butter was and how unhealthy anything fat was. Then she heard someplace that oleo was neither healthy nor plant-based, that it was a form of plastic (I never bothered to enquire). Now it's the real thing.

I actually use both. When toasting almonds to put on my baked fish real butter is best. To flavor the vegetables I use Can't believe it's not butter.

I have never believed that the plastic stuff that kinda looks like butter and kinda tastes like butter was actually more healthy than butter.
I put butter on everything, always have, always will, if you ask my grandchildren they will tell you grandpa says everything is better with butter.[emoticon]

hydrogenated oil is very bad for the body.

Omega 6 & Omega 3 ration is important. I don't recall which is which. Plant based oils gives you too much of the bad one.
