Enjoying the first breakfast of my new launch of Weight Watchering – two slices of crunchy whole wheat toast with a sparing amount of butter on each and the same amount of cherry butter. Yes, you heard me right, butter. Not “butter” – no spreads or light butter or margarine. Butter. My theory is this.
Butter has a lot more flavor than all those other substitutes combined. So if I use less of a good thing instead of more of a not-so-good thing, my taste buds will still be happy and maybe my waist will be eventually too.
Cherry butter, by the way, is awesome. It gives that sweetness without being overly tart, and it has a really good texture (something you’ll hear me complain about often I’m sure – yes, I’m a weird, picky eater). If you see some, buy it. I got mine at McCutcheons in Frederick, MD. Good and good for you.
Anyway, random post of the morning. Now back to work!
Just for the record, there’s no affiliate program for McCutcheon’s. I just love their products so I’m telling you fine folks about them.
