I bake and cook with Canola oil. Olive oil is less reliable but really good for dipping with the right flavorings.
We very sparingly use smart balance.
I cook almost all of my vegetables in the microwave with a small amount of water and for root vegetables and greens I do add Canola oil for them too.

The only time I like butter is on an English scone or toasted whole wheat bread they are the only time butters flavor comes through for me.

When I look at the long list of CHEMICALS on an alternative Nutrition label Butter is best used in small amounts and it is to be savored like a good piece of fruit.

I use butter and or coconut oil.I use it on my veggies, toast. I also use olive oil. I have taken my oil and mix with butter, half and half. I was told that way I am making a lighter spread. Don't know how good it is for you and I don't eat a lot of it.

Which is the best product to use in place of butter. Do you have a favorite for low saturated/trans fat and for flavor/ease of use? Do you use it for spreading and cooking?

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.
