Cece wrote:Margarine vs butter:Choose soft margarine: The American Heart Association recommends the use of margarine as a substitute for butter. We are excited that many brands of soft margarine do not contain trans fat anymore. Check the Nutrition Facts label and choose one with zero trans fat and no more than 2 g of saturated fats per tbsp and with liquid vegetable oil as the first ingredient.
Even without the trans fat, margarine is still processed garbage. Swank diet or not, I'd eat fresh butter from fresh, raw whole milk any day of the week over low fat fake butter (aka margarine).
