Low Fat Recipe
Experts I received this recipe from swear by it. Try at your own risk, although it definitely is healthy! In spite of butter's problems, it is by far a much wiser choice than margarine. (See Margarine Madness for more information.) Butter does have cholesterol, and when eaten in large quantities can contribute to cardiovascular disease. But moderate amounts of cholesterol are far more natural to the body than transformed fatty acids.
1/2 cup cold pressed flax oil
1 tablespoon powdered lecithin
1/2 cup nutritional yeast

Facts on Margarine
Margarine may advertise that it is free from cholesterol, but there is something even more dangerous in margarine. Due to processing and super heating of oils, the natural essential fatty acids that are found in vegetable oil are transformed into a damaging, sticky substance that contributes to heart disease, hardening of the arteries and cancer.
In the New England Journal of Medicine, a study revealed conclusive evidence that trans-fatty acids increase cholesterol. It increased low-density lipoprotein (LDL) which contribute to cardiovascular disease. In short, margarine may be free from cholesterol, but it encourages the production of bad cholesterol in the body.
Cooking oils are the most toxic food in the modern day diet. The ingredients in 100% pure corn oil margarine are about as natural as the plastic container it comes in.
