I use coconut oil sometimes for baking. Have to have butter on toast and scones. I can handle mayo instead of butter in a sandwich if there's salady stuff in it. Good olive oil is ok for dipping crusty bread into, especially if it's flavoured. It's OK for making garlic bread too.
I need to lose weight and thought it was a reallllllly bad thing to eat so thought I should go all Flora light or something is it not really all that bad? For toast, croissants, sandwiches etc just normal stuff. I don't think I will be popular in this house
Don't cut out butter, it's a good fat. Same as yoghurt or mayo etc don't buy the fat free, they're bad. If you wish to consider healthy eating where you'll lose weight, look into LOW CARB HIGH FAT - LCHF, seriously, cut out those carbs and you'll be amazed at how healthier you feel and how weight comes off. I say this from experience, look into it and good luck xx
I love love love butter! I'm now doing Weightwatchers. I can still eat butter! Just not great slabs of it on toast Half a teaspoon (level) is enough for one slice of bread. I think it would be classed as a 'scraping' but due to the gorgeous lovely tastiness of butter it is still enough
For toast, croissants, sandwiches etc just normal stuff.
I grew up on Flora but have been using butter for the last few years as no scary ingredients! I've never found that butter vs other spreads for sandwiches, toast, etc made a blind bit of difference to my weight. Eating less bread in general (and certainly no croissants) makes a massive difference for me though! And I don't low-carb more generally, its the bread products that seem to make a difference for me.
