Butter?…healthy?…what? Yes! At least if you use the right kind. I’m not talking about just any old butter, but proper grass-fed, preferably cultured, butter. It is an amazing source of healthy medium chain triglycerides, (MCT), the same type as in coconut oil. Did you also know it’s okay to add butter to your steamed green beans or broccoli? In fact I encourage it. Why? Because the fat-soluble vitamins in vegetables cannot be absorbed into your body without fat that is consumed at the same time. So, yes, all those years you were trying to be “good”, and used “fat-free” dressing on your salad, or ate veggies without fat, you were robbing your body of valuable fat soluble vitamins: vitamin A, D, E and K.
I found a wonderful article about the benefits of proper, grass-fed butter, by Dr. Axe. The link is below the infographics.
