    To all the butter-haters, I actually think butter is nutrient-dense, Western sciense just isn't smart enough to quantify it.

    ---------------------------------------------
    Here is some discussion on nutrients:

    "Actually butter contains many nutrients that protect us from heart disease. First among these is vitamin A which is needed for the health of the thyroid and adrenal glands, both of which play a role in maintaining the proper functioning of the heart and cardiovascular system. Abnormalities of the heart and larger blood vessels occur in babies born to vitamin A deficient mothers. Butter is America's best and most easily absorbed source of vitamin A.

    Butter contains lecithin, a substance that assists in the proper assimilation and metabolism of cholesterol and other fat constituents.

    Butter also contains a number of anti-oxidants that protect against the kind of free radical damage that weakens the arteries. Vitamin A and vitamin E found in butter both play a strong anti-oxidant role. Butter is a very rich source of selenium, a vital anti-oxidant--containing more per gram than herring or wheat germ.

    Butter is also a good dietary source cholesterol. What?? Cholesterol an anti-oxidant?? Yes indeed, cholesterol is a potent anti-oxidant that is flooded into the blood when we take in too many harmful free-radicals--usually from damaged and rancid fats in margarine and highly processed vegetable oils. A Medical Research Council survey showed that men eating butter ran half the risk of developing heart disease as those using margarine." Why Butter Is Better - Weston A Price Foundation

      ^ See, that's the kind of all-encompassing untrue crap I'm talking about. If I have a cow, and I chain her up and feed her candy, her butter isn't going to have any positive nutritional qualities. Painting a wide brush like that leads people to buy supermarket-brand butter and think "oh gee it's so cheap and so vitamin rich!" when it's actually disgusting, from cows strapped to milking machines til they're scarred by them, cows never allowed a proper diet, never allowed room to move, babies taken from them as soon as they're born, cows given growth hormone shots so humans can have all the butter (and cancer) they want...

          Pssst... we are on a primal forum. Do we really have to spell out the "well sourced" disclaimer before every single post?

          And yeah, stop feeding cows candy sicko!

            Tell that to like, every factory scale dairy operation in America. Tell them they shouldn't feed cows ground up cow either, while you're at it.

              Yeah... people read these forums who are new to primal, might not know that all butter is not created equal, I can't let a blatantly misleading post like that go unqualified (not that Kimchi was trying to be misleading, but maybe the WAP foundation was)

                ...to be fair, there is no standard that you would find sufficient for partaking of the cow or derivatives from it, right...

                  I would not eat dairy products, no. Humans aren't designed to. Human milk is 60:40 whey to casein, cow's milk is 20:80 and designed to make calves grow exponentially

                      Sigh. All of that post was fact. "Humans weren't designed to" was perhaps my conclusion based on the evidence, but you can't call facts "my opinion."

                      Those new people should stay far away from the dairy you find at the store, perhaps if they know a farmer with a well-fed, nicely-treated cow their digestive systems will overcome the innate limitations re: digesting casein...

                      • I loves me some goat milk butter, but rarely eat just a pat even though to me it is as tasty as dark chocolate.

                        I do cook most meals in cast iron pans using a teaspoon or so of rendered duck fat or butter. I usually only eat bacon when i cook liver and onions. To clean up my pans at the end of cooking I usually throw in a double hand full of greens or raw coleslaw mix to wilt. This soaks up the odd bits and cooking oil which cleans up the pan for the most part.

                        If I was to instead pour off the oil and use a cloth or paper towels to clean it up could I then eat a pat of butter?
                        Or both are equally horrible?

                          I use a griddle for most my stove top cooking. It has a grease collector that I never use. I just let the fat solidify and reheat it when I cook the next thing. If it happens to be veggies or some other low fat item that saves me from having to add anything. If it is bacon....well I get double fried bacon! It's all good IMO. Long as its primarily from good saturated fat.

They are toppings and cooking tools/additives, not foods that should be consumed on their own. If you eat slices of butter, you must also be okay with eating tablespoons of honey. It's the same principle. To say butter is okay to eat by itself and deny the same to honey, maple syrup and molasses isn't logical.
                            i don't touch honey, maple syrup or molasses. even pre-primal i never cared for them. to equate pure sugar with butter is nothing but hilarity.

                            this thread is one of the funnier reads i've had in a while.

                            walk away for an hour and come back and read your stuff. bwwaaaahhhhh!! geezus, kid, exhale.

                            As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
