I can’t believe how many people are still substituting fake foods, i.e. butter substitutes, on the premise that it is healthier! Many of my clients are shocked that I am recommending they pitch their margarines and butter substitutes IMMEDIATELY in favor of organic butter. Decades of mis or blatantly wrong information has led to a fear of butter.
