Breaking News: Butter Isn’t So Bad | Atkins

A new study
by Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian in the journal PLoS One found no link between eating butter and heart disease. The
study analyzed nine papers that included over 600,000 people, and concluded
that butter did not contribute to a higher risk of heart disease and may even
be a little helpful in preventing Type-2 diabetes.Several
media outlets have covered the study, seen
here, which
adds to a growing body of research showing that the low-fat diet trend was
misguided.

Once again, this study adds
to the growing body of research that demonstrates you don’t need to avoid butter because it contains saturated
fat. Granted, this does not mean it’s time for a butter free-for-all. A little
butter goes a long way, but adds delicious flavor and satisfies you. Fill your
plate with fresh vegetables and protein like poultry, steak or fish, while
enjoying up to three tablespoons a day of healthy fats like butter, olive oil, or mayonnaise. Check out the following low-carb recipes, which
feature butter as a flavorful component.

Artichokes with Lemon Butter

Artichokes dipped in lemon butter are a delicious and naturally low-carb start to any meal.

Drizzle this on vegetables, fish or meat.
