  • Butter. I use Land O Lakes whipped butter light or the generic organic unsalted butter.

  • Real butter. I like to use olive oil, grapeseed, or sunflower oils if I want to cook, but I will never buy margarine again.

  • Butter is actually healthier. Think about do you want something natural in your body or a bunch of chemicals? Also butter does have less saturated fat and less calories.
