Do you Butter?

I love butter. Its true. However, for the vast majority of my life I have settled for “Buttery Spreads” because I thought it was better for me. But then I started looking at ingredients. Here they are for Smart Balance:

NATURAL OIL BLEND (PALM FRUIT, SOYBEAN, CANOLA, AND OLIVE OILS), WATER, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF SALT, WHEY (FROM MILK), VEGETABLE MONOGLYCERIDES AND SORBITAN ESTER OF FATTY ACIDS (EMULSIFIERS), SOYBEAN LECITHIN, POTASSIUM SORBATE, LACTIC ACID (TO PROTECT FRESHNESS), NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN B6, VITAMIN B12, VITAMIN D, VITAMIN E (DL-α-TOCOPHEROL ACETATE), BETA-CAROTENE COLOR

I like eating things I can pronounce, and I made the switch to real butter. It taste better, cooks better, and it only has two ingredients.
However, I know its high in fat and such but I don’t care. Now comes the exciting part. (drum roll please) We are going to have the first ever Life in C-2 poll. Please vote on what you prefer to cook and eat!

The poll didn't work but I only use butter. If they give me margarine at a restaurant for my bread, I exchange it.

I'm a Butter Spread eater (Parkay to be specific). Society has brainwashed me into beleiving the fat in butter is bad -- whether it's true or not. ~~ Amy (oaks)
