30 Days to a Greener Diet - Day 12
Switch to Butter (Don't Faint)
Used Sparingly, It’s Healthier Than Margarine, and We All Know It's Delicious
Pity the beleaguered stick 'o butter.
Remember when the diet powers that be convinced us that trans-fat-laden margarine was a miracle food, a healthier choice than natural old butter that humans happily lived with for hundreds if not thousands of years? Today, even the heart docs say that butter in moderation is better than the engineering marvel known as margarine.
Just don’t go crazy with it. Like anything else, it should be used in moderation, and you should try to buy organic butter if you can. Splurge once or twice on those old-style European butters that are increasingly available in the supermarket. There are no rules, except to enjoy.
See how simple the New Green Cuisine is?
