    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    Since the children are used to the taste of the margarine but not the ghee, could you blend the two and gradually transition? Begin with mostly margarine with a little ghee, and over time increase the proportion of the ghee gradually.

    Amen, Sister!!

    My oldest is autistic and has aversions to MANY foods because of either texture, smell or taste. And can also activate his gag reflex on demand.
    I can only get him to eat 'out of his ordinary' vegetables if they have butter and salt and he has to see me put it on it.
    I recently switched to coconut oil (steam processed/no flavor) and smoked sea salt or himalayan salt and it goes over quite well. He does tend to like intense salt and sweet flavors. I've been trying to convert him to gluten-free and dairy-free for a long time but he is quite addicted to both.
    I've used nutritional yeast flakes to make a [I]cheez[I] sauce before and that worked fairly well too. I know, not primal, but still...

    I did not read through every page of comments, but I add 1/4-1/2c. of coconut oil to my ghee to add volume. It's slightly nutty, and the butter flavor is virtually nonexistent. If you have a gourmet grocer nearby, flavored EVOO and balsamics are totally awesome on everything. And a chopped up avocado with lots of salt and pepper is always nummy.

    This is a fantastic opportunity for the OP to break their children's poor eating habits and embrace real food.
    You must not ever deal with kids. A kid that eats primal with the exception of some margarine is doing pretty well eating real food. It's not like she is putting margarine on white buns that wrap cornsyrup filled hot dogs.

    I'd just keep trying new things, but have the margarine as a back up. I am a big fan of butter and cheese, but have recently found I like aioli a bunch too. I saw a bunch of people posted recipes- you can really play around with what you add to it.

    My concern with this would be the transfats. I think they are quite dangerous even in very small amounts, right? Isn't margarine just purified hydrogenated oils?

    Most margarine is made without trans fats nowadays (or course, they use the alternate frankenfood of 'inter-ester-fied fats' instead)....
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.
