I've recently cut meat from my diet and am now seriously considering removing dairy as well. Over the last week I have attempted to gradually remove dairy, but am having considerable difficulty with butter. The other dairy products haven't been problematic at removing, but butter is. I gave up margarine this past summer (switching to butter) because I felt like it was unhealthy and from it seemed that butter (in moderation) would be better from a health standpoint. Does anyone have any suggestions as to alternatives? What can I use instead? I am really interested in eating healthy.
