Butter vs Margarine

Okay. For years and years, I would only eat a non-hydrogenated, "low fat" margarine like Becel. Now I have switched to butter and I have no idea which one is really better for me. So I open the debate. Which is better? Margarine or Butter?

Here's what the experts think:

Dr. Weil is in favour of butter
Mayo clinic is in favour of margarine...
American Medical Association research shows margarine lowers LDL.

What do you think?

Ah! Interesting!

I thought I would be up against a hard-core margarine crowd, for sure. I prefer butter, too. I find a little goes a lot further than the marge.

I love butter! Butter makes everything taste better! Organic butter, of course.

But sometimes, for VERY special occasions, I buy Plugra.
