Another vote for butter here...even though our budget is tight I always make sure we have lots! Since I switched to butter, I find that margarine tastes incredibly artificial. I can't even eat it anymore.

Butter is a whole food, a real food with real nutrients.<br><br>
Earth Balance is a fake, highly-processed food.<br><br>
I vote for butter.

Ditto everyone else. We love our raw butter and I consider it a necessary food, not just something to put on bread and veggies. It's so full of things our bodies need. It's almost a medicine to me!

I'm facinated by what you guys say about butter!! I only use real butter as well but only because I'm a big believer in the whole "less ingredients" thing and that is a "natural" product vs made in a lab like margarine.<br><br>
Could someone point me in the right direction to learn about the potential health benefits of butter?

IMO, neither one is good for you, and either should be used in small enough quantities to make little to no difference.<br><br>
But I'm vegan and a believer in a low fat diet high in unrefined carbohydrates, which is what works best for me.

Another "BUTTER" vote here! If you Google "health benefits butter" you'll come up with a wealth of information. Here's <a href="http://www.bodyecology.com/07/07/05/benefits_of_real_butter.php" target="_blank">one site with list of butter benefits.</a>

I make ghee out of butter, so great and many healing qualities (according to ayurveda). It also removes the impurities.

Butter!<br><br>
wow, I didin't know about all of the good things butter has in it. I just assumed it was better because it was more whole and less plasticky. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
