Have some Butter...

Eat your Butter... Its good for you.

Taste - Honestly who doesnt love butter? It's Betta with Budda.
We personally LOVE Kerrygold, for taste and nutritional benefit, its a Grassfed Butter, we get it at Costco, Sams Club, Kroger or Trader Joes...
Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter - Salted (8 ounce) by

Nutrition - A Great Source of Vitamins A, E, K(will have another writeup on this oft overlooked vitamin), Iodine, Anti-Oxidants, Selenium, Butyric Acid(anti inflammatory)

Vitamins are Fat Soluble  - Your body absorbs vitamins better when it has dietary fat.
What good is eating the Healthy Food without the benefits... make sure you add a Healthy Dietary Fat with every real meal to ensure absorption. If you take supplements(I prefer real food), make sure you take them with a meal, with Dietary Fat!

Heres a Great Writeup over at Weston A Price. 

Quality Saturated Fat. Heart Healthy. and Happy Tastebuds to boot!

Carotenoid bioavailability is higher from salads ingested with full-fat than with fat-reduced salad dressings as measured with electrochemical detection.American Journal of Clinical NutritionBrown, M.J., Ferruzzi, M.G., Nguyen, M.L., Cooper, D.A., Eldridge, A.L., Schwartz, S.J., & White, W.S. 

Carotenoid absorption from salad and salsa by humans is enhanced by the addition of avocado or avocado oil.Journal of Nutrition - Unlu, N.Z., Bohn, T., Clinton, S.K., & Schwartz, S.J..

Sometimes you can get grassfed butter from local dairies...I get mine from Southern Swiss Dairy through my local food co-op. It's much cheaper than Kerrygold, if less handy for recipes since it isn't in neat sticks.
