There was fat on her heart!

May 2nd, 2006 at 07:53 am

You know when you get a hunk of beef to make a roast one side has the huge line of fat? That is what this lady on Orahs heart looked like! I mean seriously it was covered in fat! and they had to cut thru the fat to get to the heart to do the bipass! (oh and her lungs really did have black tar on them from smoking!)

I also learned that we love the one brand of peanut butter that has partially hydrogenated stuff, which apparently takes all the good out of peanut butter? And the butter spread I let DH train me to use is bad for you (for the same fat)

So now what? I was thinking I aught start cooking with more margarine and less butter and now I find I should dump the margarine!

Oh well, 20 some years of habits, I can take a few more to get healthier..first step use up the beanut butter, and margarine spread we have, second, try other brands/go back to butter sticks...

    I wish I knew how to print the article that tells you had bad margarine is for you. When I read it, we went to butter and nothing else. (margarine is basically plastic)

    We use butter for spreading on things, have for about 9 years now, but we cook everything in extra virgin olive oil. I will use canola oil in baking, though. Cake doesn't taste right made with olive oil.

    I use butter, but not often. Try to stick with olive oil for cooking like LuckyRobin; i even use it when popping popcorn. Only time i use butter is in baking or with corn on the cob.

    I usually use oil to cook, butter to bake...but for potatoes,a nd spreding on toast, I had been getting used to the spreadable stuff. I don't think it will be hard for me to go back, now I just have to convert DH to my way!

    I saw that show, too. There were a few things that surprised me. Who knew that pomegranates are so good for you? Plus, I love nuts. Dry roasted, of course!
