Butter Does a Body Good

Apparently not all butter are created equal. Recently BF told me about grass-butter and its benefit over grain-fed butter. And being a health conscious gal, I went online to do some reading (This article here on Mark's Daily Apple is great) and ran out the very next morning to get me some of these buttery goodness. Initially I was slightly skeptical because I thought butter couldn't be that different. However looking the two types of butter side by side, I was floored at the difference. Grass-fed butter is really yellow and grain-fed is more creamy yellow. Next, I tasted both types of butter. I was amazed at the richness of the grass-fed butter and the flavor was a lot more intense than the regular grain-fed butter I have been consuming all my life. The brand I got is Kerrygold from Whole Food for $2.79 for 8 oz. I found out it is not too hard to find. I was told it was also available at Trader Joe's. After this, I don't think I can go back to grain-fed butter.

  4. I loved this post. Never knew they sold this type of butter. Since grass fed is always better, it would make sense.
