BHTV #15 – Butter vs. Margarine

Imagine you are at an elegant dinner party and the first course is soup accompanied by sourdough bread rolls.  Trying to please everyone, the host provides both butter and margarine, so that each guest can use what they prefer.  Your eyes dart between the two options.  You are trying to eat less fat and be healthier. Which is the better choice?

This is a common question and the answer given has changed with time, making many people unsure which is the healthier choice.  Is it butter or is it margarine?  This episode will help you to decide before you are confronted with that choice again.  Because the last thing you want to do is spend so much time deciding which spread to use that your bread gets cold before you have a chance to eat it.

    I haven’t eaten butter in a long time. I use margarine or olive oil when I cook.
