Butter VS Margarine VS Oils

That's it I give up I can't take it anymore. Healthy eating is a pain in the a$$. I knew this part of my journey was going to be difficult. So, I'm not surprised by what I've found while researching for this post. Click on the links for the source of topics.

BUTTER- Mo Butta, Mo problems. Butter has gotten a bad rap for being unhealthy because it can lead to certain heart disease. I'm not going to lie there are some dishes that just taste good only when cooked with butter. But too much of it is not a good thing so I use it sparingly.

MARGARINE- Then comes this one being labeled as a better alternative to butter. Just because you look like butter you think you slick(no pun intended). Which makes butter a better option. But I thought butter was not good. Yeah, I'm even more confused.

OILS- I cook with olive oil. Olive oil is considered to be a good fat. It has a high amount of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and with minimal or no saturated fats and trans fats. I use to cook with coconut oil. But guess what!!! It's high in trans fat or saturated fats. So now I just use it for my hair and skin. Hummmp, I'm not throwing it away.
