A Healthier alternative to butter…without sacrificing taste
Have you ever tried making a grilled cheese sandwich with fat free butter, or even worse…cooking spray?! It just doesn’t work. Fat plays a very important role in food. Not only does it add flavor, but it also aids in the browning process of foods.
But maybe your cholesterol is a little high and your doctor advised you to cut back on saturated fat-rich foods like fatty cuts of meat, lard, cheese, whole milk, cream and yes…butter (over half of the fat in butter is saturated.) Does this mean you have to crack open that tub of fat free butter again? Heck no!
Enter…Earth Balance Spread with Olive Oil! I stumbled upon it at my local grocery store last year and have been a fan ever since. This tasty alternative to butter will have you saving 5 grams of saturated fat per tablespoon! Make no mistake about it, Earth Balance isn’t a low-fat spread— so you’ll still want to mind your portions—but you won’t sacrifice flavor or the “browning” factor. The best part…your grilled cheese will actually taste like grilled cheese!
