Bit of both. Only cook with butter and it's great on hot cross buns (warmed of course). Marg is convenient as it's always spreadable and I only like Flora. All the others taste like one molecule removed from plastic.
Butter please! My Doctor recommends butter and use it sparingly. A good friends son worked for a major producer of margarine. He said if you knew the process of creating margarine you most definitely wouldn't eat it.
Butter is saturated fat which raises the bad blood cholesterol and adds to heart attack risk. Just image a piece of cholesterol breaking away and causing sudden death to your loved ones or yourself! I eat very little margarine (one small tub for our family lasts around 2 or 3 months) and rarely a bit of butter. Mostly we use olive oil as it increases the good cholesterol which helps counter bad cholesterol. People should take this seriously and do their own proper research rather than simply assuming anything "natural" is good for them. Tobacco is natural but is it good for you? Good health to all of you :).
butter. After all i've read about margarine wouldn't touch the stuff any more. I don't eat a lot of butter but when I do I prefer it. Its a whole food so as per the fresh full cream milk discussion, if you are going to have it, the little bit you do, it may as well be the good stuff and whole foods are good for you, even those in the diary section of the food triangle. The flavour is also sensational.
Butter, butter and more butter. Love the taste of it and use it in cooking also. Cakes just don't turn out or taste the same without it. However my husband prefers margarine and uses his own so if I'm making sandwiches for us, its margarine for him and butter for me.
