Personally I keep flipping on this one- up until recently it was safe because I considered it an important source of fat and nutrients, but then I got freaked out about how calorie-dense it is, and now I won't touch it.

What about you? Safe food, fear food, or somewhere in between? Do you prefer other ways of getting your fats and omegas?

One of my biggest fear foods. I haven't eaten butter for over two years and I don't think I will ever be again.

Eh sometimes I try to avoid butter. I prefer to have unsalted butter usually only half a teaspoon when I do. Although, the rational part of me says that not all calories are created equal. x-x

butter is cool it def makes food taste a lot better and more flavorful than if you were to use oil. butter is a once in a while food for me :) fats are so good for u!! butter on toast? blueberry muffin? with strawberry jam??? ugh *chef's kiss*

 

too much of anything will always hurt. if ur worried abt safeness & dairy, i recommend trying earth balance vegan butter. it tastes amazing :D

I think it's unhealthy, I try not to use it. I try and only eat healthy food but I'm always trying to finish eating something unhealthy because I keep buying unhealthy snacks on sale.

It's only safe if I can measure the amount that will be used/eaten (but that's the same for just about any other food for me).

It freaks me out a lot less than margarine or like low-cal fake butter, especially if it's local. Plus I like it better than cooking with oil a lot of the time because I can cut it into a neat little easily measured cube and that makes my brain happy. 

 

It also adds a lot of buttery flavour for a very tiny amount which is nice.

Fear.  Even when I wasn't vegan - fear.  Now, I like getting my fats from lots of avos, nuts, seeds and small amounts of olives or some high quality olive oil or avocado oil, depending on what I'm making.

Butter, especially local grass feed butter is very safe, especally cooked into ghee. I make spice infused ghee for my coffee.

A thin spread of butter on freshly baked and still warm bread is so good.

Yes butter is very kcal dense, its almost pure fat and thats 9,3kcal for a gram, it doesnt matter where i get fat from, it always has the same kcal. A thin spread or a bit in my coffee will add 40-50kcal

Fear! I replaced butter with low-fat margarine ages ago and I never ever want to go back.

Butter and nutrients? What?

Butter is just high in saturated fat and dietary cholesterol which are both very bad for you, no nutrients there
