    Margarine of course but the best at least for me is Olive oil, peanut oil, vegetable oil,  Flax oil etc.  What I do is for Pancake I use Margarine, for rest I used olive oil put in pump bottle and spray,  It works well, an option and cheap instead of buying Pam Can, and you can evenly put it. The above method will minimized saturated fat which is that one we want to avoid. Best Nutrional will be Flax, I was able to get in bottle for cooking in store. Taste great with all the seasoning they put there.

    I don't own any butter, salt, and sugar.  Can you believe it?  When I am eating out I do use butter for pancake etc, and use salt/pepper as needed.  I figure if I don't have it, then I can't over use it.  However, I do have Pepsi, chocolate cake, etc, which isn't good :-)

    I use PAM butter spray and it seems to work well ... and besides, it also tastes good, too.

    On carb up day, Olive Oil & Pepper on my Italian bread.

    General Info...


    Windwords7(and others), this is an interesting link on milkfat in general. Its a little technical but a good read nonetheless on the potential benefits of milkfat. Butter has its uses!

    I would use a small amount of butter instead of margerine. Yes, butter has more fat but margerine has transfatties.

    Really, you have to decide what is more important: health or calories.

    Have you ever tried SMART BALANCE?

    The wife just got it today when she went shopping and it really tastes pretty darn good. Very buttery flavor and very smooth. Also, there are 0 grams Trans Fatty Acids per serving.

    The breakdown on it is as follows:

    Serving size: 1 TBSP
    Calories: 45
    Cals from fat: 45

    Total Fat: 5g
    Sat Fat 1.5g
    Poly Fat 1.5g
    Mono Fat 2g

    Cholesterol: 0g
    Total Carb 0g
    Protein 0g

    Main Ingredients: water, Natural Oil Blend (soy, palm, canola, and olive oils) less than 2% salt, vegetable monoglycerides, soybean lecithin, potassium sorbate, lactic acid (to protect freshness), calcium disodium EDTA, vitamin E, vitamin A, and beta-carotene color.


    Look okay?????

    Smart Balance


    I have been using smart balance for quite a while now. The taste is really good.

    I wonder if they heat the oils very much to make it though. If they do, the properties of the oils would be very different and nowhere near as healthy as they would like you to believe. I am curious if anyone else has ideas on this?

    They certainly don't make a point about including 'cold or expeller pressed' oils or anything about it being in an unrefined form. Hence I am a bit skeptical.

    The emulsifiers they use seem fine to me since they are present in low concentration however.

    I really hope I am wrong about my skepticism, but I don't think so.

    I have heard of a product called "keto-butter" which uses only MCT oils...could it be true????  I did a search on it once a while back, i suggest doing a search on google for it.  IF this is true it would be your beest bet.  Hope that helps.
