Eat butter, not margarine

It IS good for you, in fact, dairy helps you break down other fat in the body.

Actually, avoid anything that has hydrogenated fat (transfats) stick to known and natural! emoticon

Cream cheese

Try using fat free cream cheese (available at Walmart) instead of butter and cream. One serving is 30 calories and of course no fat. It's really good on a baked potato instead of butter, and I have also used it to make Alfredo sauce and to make the creaminess for chowder soups.

No butter corn on the cob

I LOVE corn on the cob but the butter we lather on it is killer. Now I use "pam" type spray instead. Just spray it on instead of butter and add salt. It sticks just like butter because of the spray. What would I do without my Pam?!?!? Try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

No Butter No Sugar Sugar Cookies

My husband and I are both Type 2 diabetics and he has heart problems but we love a good old fashion Sugar Cookie! We found that Smart Balance butter substitute and Splenda let us continue to indulge! Just be careful when selecting Splenda as it also has a half Splenda half real sugar product.

Measuring butter made easy!

Forget measuring butter with a tablespoon ... mark it!

Sticks of butter are marked with each tablespoon measured. Before unwrapping the butter, take the back of a butter knife, and press into the butter causing an indentation.

Remove the wrapper, and your butter is easily marked!

Have a Laughing Cow, man!

I love Laughing Cow lite cheese & use it to spread on the bread for a sandwich instead of mayo, or over a stick of celery & put pistachio nuts in it for a super snack...then discovered it's great for replacing butter in mashed potatoes! YUM!

Better Butter

Mix butter with olive oil to create a healthier spread. I take a stick of butter and then let it soften. slowly mix in same amount of olive oil, using a fork. I do not know whose idea this was originally. But it is heart- healthier than butter ..and cheaper than those expensive butter subsitutes.

Butter & Margarine

I don't put any butter or margarine on my sandwich or toast if I'm putting something else on/in it such as jam, cheese, egg, ham etc. I can't tell the difference and save myself quite a few calories.
