3. Butter.

If you previously swore off butter because you heard that it was full of saturated fat, you can rejoice and start buying butter once more. Real butter is super healthy, natural, and rather nutritious. Real butter, especially from grass fed cows, contains vital fatty acids such as CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) and butyrate, both of which are loaded with healthy benefits. Butter is also full of vitamin A, E, and K2, which are important to your skin, blood, eyes, and immune system.

Studies have shown that CLA can lower the percentage of body fat in humans. Butyrate improves gut health, fights inflammation, and, in one study involving rats, made these animals completely resistant to becoming obese! Who doesn’t want more of that?!

The only problem with butter is that it can burn. You can solve this problem by using ghee, which is a type of clarified butter.

Always choose butter that was made from grass fed cows as this type of butter will contain the highest level of vitamins and CLA.

      Yet another person brainwashed into thinking all animal fat in any amount is bad. And then backing up their attack by saying something totally irrelevant.

    Great list! Read another site’s list touting canola oil as healthy so I knew that list was bunk, but this one I mostly agree with.
