Default Butter replacement comments?


I'm ready to wean myself off butter.
I've seen all the butter replacements in the store and I'm looking for
commments on what people are using instead.
Thanks!

One of the reasons I'm asking is I recently came across this bread
and I want to add it my eating regime. It hardly spikes me at all.

I've switched to olive oil mostly as a butter substitute when I cook, and
use teflon pans so the couple of drops just for added crispness when
needed. I sometimes use a touch of olive or sesame seed oil for flavor
after the dish has been cooked (a spash of sesame seed oil in chicken soup
adds a nice, exotic touch with only a tiny bit of added fat.) Following a
trick I learned from my grandmother, I have a small "spritz" bottle with a
light weight oil blend I can use as a custom mixed "spray on non-stick
flavor spray", suitable for both frying and as a salad dressing.

I still use butter on rare occasions, but it might take me two months to
go through a 1 lb. box.

Butter. It is very rare that I eat bread (muffins, bagels, etc.) any more;
when I am at a restaurant and decide that dinner roll looks good, I reach
for the real thing. I figure, if I'm going to indulge anyway, I'm going to
enjoy myself :-P

I like gregory's suggestion of Olive oil. Great flavor and you can add
seasonings.

More so I like the looks of the bread. What's the name? Where is it?

I didn't want to mention it right away, I know people are sensitive about
such things.
Here's the link:
http://www.naturalovens.com/Products...arb_Bread.html
or http://tinyurl.com/rbhu
I bought some of their "Granola Bars" and they're pretty tasty.
I was just on the brink of making my own bread (I actually liberated the
bread machine from the lower kitchen cupboard) when I came across this
bread. Why bother making my own? It will never be as good as this stuff.
IMHO

I have given up spreading.

I don't use fats or oils.

I use Smart Balance spread. It comes in a regular or diet version. I
usually buy the regular one unless the diet is on sale for a cheaper price.
Olive oil is good too, but is best used with Italian food. Pour some in a
flat dish and dip your bread in it.

I don't know if you can get it there, but I use Flora pro-activ light.
Maybe Quentin can comment on it's value, it's one of those which
includes phytosterol ester (8% plant sterols) to reduce your
cholesterol.

Mine sits in the fridge and gets very occasional use. Every so often I
reckon it's got too old and throw it out and buy a replacement.

That's the bread I eat. It's really delicious. I use Smart Balance spread
when I use one. No trans-fats and it tastes pretty good. It's onw of the
cholesterol lowering spreads.

I would suggest something like Benecol, which has the nice side benefit of
lowering cholesterol.
