Has anyone ever read anything about this topic? It's interesting. It's funny how you can start talking about "Big Oil (the edible kind)" after reading this \:\)

http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/untold-story-of-butter/

A co-worker forwarded the link to me. He and I have been talking a lot about food and how it affects our health.

It's not exactly "new" news, but at the same time it's not widely understood either. Although this particular site's post is directed at butter in particular, similar parallels can be drawn to everything that we eat (natural vs. reduced calorie processed alternatives).

Just because some guy on a TV show says that this manufactured "substitute" is better for you doesn't mean that it really is. The artificial ingredients in things are not well understood before being approved for human consumption. Artificial ingredients may not all be bad, but they are foreign enough to all be called into question. They don't do 20-year studies on all those ingredients to figure out what the long-term effects are.

Which brings me to my family's dietary "New Year's resolution" - to focus on eating more natural and healthy foods, and less processed junk.

Next time you get groceries, shop on the perimeter. It will have everything you need.

Yeah, a lot if information is breaking on this topic matter and many of the facts point to debunking much of what we've been taught in the last 50 years.
I'm always surprised when I see people using margarin etc because its tastes like crap.
The research really suggests that if you drop the vegetable oils in favor of natural, saturated fats, cholesterol levels drop. Our brains are made up of primarily saturated fat and cholesterol. A diet that deprives your brain of its raw essentials, can effect mental performance. Also, some studies conclude that saturated fat is the preferred energy source of your cardiovascular system.

If you want a full-on mind blow, try this stuff:



It's higher than giraffe balls at the grocery store, but Costco will oftentimes carry it in a big tub for the price of the small batch at Kroger. It tastes the way butter is supposed to taste. Oh, and even when cold, it spreads on bread easily

I usually buy these Troyer rolls of butter at Ezy Way: http://www.troyerscountrymarket.com/butterrollunsalted5lb.aspx

But, we do get that Kerrygold brand for the St Patty's Day meal

I've also seen Kerrygold, as well as Dubliner Irish cheddar at Aldi for dirt cheap. It's a good place to cruise for their seasonal high-end stuff.

What "season" is for butter? Or do they just sell it more often at certain holidays or something?

That's new to me.

There's an Aldi in Bartlett, so that might be a great option for me. I'm pretty sure that the guy at work who sent me that link eats that stuff all the time. He even uses it in his coffee in lieu of creamer. I think a lot of the principles he's following are based on stuff he's read either from the "paleo" type diet or a site called http://www.bulletproofexec.com

Aldi just rotates their specialty stock. I think stuff like Kerrygold and Dubliner can be found around Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Aldi is a pretty cool store if you're not hell bent on namebrand stuff. It's pretty obvious which ittems they sell that originated in a name brand factory. Milk & eggs are always great buys, and everytime I do poppers, I get Aldi bacon. Canned goods a reliable buy there, and it can be fun just cruising through to see what all they have.

Avoid the deli meat. It's not very good.

A couple summers ago, they had some heavy-weight insulated Muck boot knockoffs on sale for $30/pair.

I particularly like Aldi's produce, but I've found you have to get there early in the morning to avoid finding just picked over bins. Oh, I'm very fond on the quarter in the cart deal too! \:D

Crosshairy - thanks for the link to the butter story...the link to the Weston A. Price Foundation proved beneficial as well. I've got a ton of reading to do now.

I heard a heart doctor last year talk about how they have been wrong over the last 20 years with the low fat diets. He said it isn't the fat that causes high cholesterol It's the processed foods. It is equivalent to taking sand paper and rubbing on your arm. Processed foods irritate your arteries and cause swelling which in turn causes blockages. He said to avoid any processed foods including margarine.

Stick to Butter!
I have since I heard him. It made sense to me.
