I have found my perfect diet aid.
I have always craved butter but despised (wisely it now seems) the taste of margerine.
For heart reasons, I've chosen not to eat butter anymore and haven't for a couple years.
I have the ideal substitute. It's called SMART BEAT, a canola-water whip with few enough trans-fats for the government to allow the use of the term ZERO TRANS FATS.
The real nicety for someone like me who is counting calories for years is that it's only 20 calories per tablespoon comapred to all the other spreads that go for 80-100 calories.
And it tastes good.
Now I can have delicious rolls when hungry without the guilt of all the calories from the grease I spread on...I'd almost forgotten how delicious a freshly baked roll can taste.
If you are watching your calories pick up some in you supermarket if they carry it. It's two 8 ounce tubs from anywhere between $.99 and $1.49. It's made by the same people that make the higher calorie SMART BALANCE (at 4 times the amount of calories.)
Its only disadvantage is that it is of no use for cooking...it never melts
