Ok, ok ... so I admit the relationship between butter and toning up doesn't scream out as a positive correlation, but, I had fun posting the blog title!
I decided last year to use only real butter on things. At first I was apprehensive - real butter ... you know what they say (I feel like those high-fructose corn syrup commercials)! Primarily, I wanted to make sure what I was putting my body was real and natural. While it's good not to generously eat butter, it seems more intuitive to eat something made with real ingredients than the margarine with things I cannot pronounce. I wasn't convinced though, the guilt of the fat and calories seemed to nag me here and there despite my quest to simplify my foods. I caved and bought margarine after about only 2 months of using butter. The margarine tasted like crap completely eliminating my guilt and I now I always opt for butter both for taste and peace of mind. Compliments of AEB - I can butter in style :)
