Are you afraid of … BUTTER

5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD EAT BUTTER!

Butter is, let’s face it, delicious. Not just because I have a post how to make it at home

If you need to butter someone…

but because there is so much fear out there of butter. Can you actually believe that butter is good for you. Why?

Why is butter good for you?

1. It is Filled with Immune-Boosting Vitamins

Butter is a source of vitamins A, D, K and E. It’s an especially rich source of Vitamin A in the form that is easiest for our bodies to use.

1TBSP of butter = 7 percent and 2 percent of your daily values of vitamins A and D.

2. It May Prevent Tooth Decay

Certain fat-soluble vitamins – including calcium and vitamins A, D and K and may help fight cavities and even reverse tooth decay, according to research

3. Helps absorption of vitamins and minerals from vegetables
When butter is used in cooking with vegetables, it helps our bodies process and use the water soluble vitamins and minerals found in the veg.

4. Can help protect against cancer

Conjugated Linoleic Acid has been tied to tumor reduction in colorectal cancer and may even help fight breast cancer,
CLA is only found in butter from grass-fed cows is attributed to having anti-cancer properties
as well as preventing weight gain.

5. Trace Minerals
Butter is also a source of minerals that are required only in tiny quantities by our bodies.
These include manganese, zinc, chromium & iodine.

So, can you eat homemade butter?

Yes, you can. When fat comes from natural sources, and we don’t combine it with too many refined carbohydrates, we have no reason to fear it.

Just remember one thing, eat in moderation!

So, are you still scared of our little yellow, fatty butter? Of course not.

You know that living in fear is not life so start your day, today, by making my homemade butter. (click on the link below)
