Why It's a Must Have: “Butter helps bring out flavor in food, and like other fats, it digests more slowly than carbohydrates. Having some fat, but not too much, at meals can help you feel satisfied,” Cooper says. Just don’t go too crazy with it, and limit your intake to a portion or two a day since it is high in saturated fat.
Budget Bonus: Stick with basic or generic brands, since the taste is fairly consistent, recommends Cooper. If you are eating a healthy diet (with the foods on this list) there’s no need to buy more expensive brands that add in omega-3s or other ‘nutritional’ bonuses to their butter.
