How much butter have you used this week?
And if you are one of the make-everything-from-scratch aficionados, may I ask how much white butter have you churned from scratch this week?
Even though butter is always associated as 'bad fat', actually the real butter could be heart-healthy, a little knob of richness is always welcomed in our house. The Husband called this french butter as my standard bar of gold, as it is so much tastier in the bakes, but what a hole in the pocket! On top of his ritual romantic bouquet of flowers, he has now begun buying me this butter too for my weekly bakes, so I shall justify the health benefits in case if you think I am over indulging!
- Butter contains lauric acid, which is efefctive against candida or fungal infections
- contains anti-oxidants, Vitamin A, E and K so it is heart-healthy
- The saturated fat is also anti-carcinogenic
- Protects against joints calcification
- May promote fertility in women
- The cholesterol in real butter is good for the children's brain development
- Protects againsts gastrointestinal infections
Always, always get the real deal though, preferably organic and not those butter laden with preservatives. Bring it to a next level with cultured butter, which contains lactobacillus and good for the health.
With that quick note, happy weekend all!
