Alternatives to Butter

You don’t have to use butter to add flavor to your food. The joy of butter is the creaminess it imparts, and luckily, there are plenty of healthy alternatives that can give you that creamy taste. Here are a few options:

  • Instead of buttering your toast, mash up ¼ of an avocado. Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat (a heart-healthy fat), and you’ll be adding fiber and vitamin C.
  • Use hummus in place of butter. Different hummus varieties can be found in most supermarkets and specialty grocers. You’ll love the change of pace and your body will appreciate the extra fiber.
  • If you want something for your bread at dinner, ask the waiter for olive oil. It provides a slightly fruity and spicy alternative that adds vitamin E and healthy monounsaturated fats.

With so many tasty alternatives, skipping the butter will become a habit in no time.
