    Diet craze leaves Norwegians starved of butter

     

    Any Norwegians here who can comment on this?

      What's the URL?  The link isn't working.  As someone who is part Norwegian the thought of no butter scares me.  Margarine is nasty.

        HATES  butter , then again I don't really do much margarine either.

          Ooh, no butter to make Christmas cookies?!  That would suck.  I have a friend in Norway...I should mail her a pound of butter as a joke. Evil

            Interesting- I'm Hungarian and I was just discussing with a friend how margarine ruins our cookies.  I cannot imagine cookies without butter.  Poor Norwegians.

               I wouldn't want to live in a world without butter.  Cry

                Margarine is nasty.

                 

                Right, but  "margarine" is poorly defined and there are some nice alternatives [1] to butter - some of the olive oil spreads are rather nice. In  some situations just putting good olive oil on bread is nice.

                 

                As with many things, a bit of variety is nice...

                 

                 

                [1] For the pendants - I realise that some traditionalists will insist that there is only one "alternative".

                    Now you're just being pedantic.

                    just a simple cat

                      If they are all on a no-carb diet, they won't need butter to make cookies...........

                        Good point.  Except for those who aren't on low carb diets.  Though when I did low-carb I still made cookies...there are ways to do it without flour.  I had a couple of kinds I made that were really pretty good (they used things like almond flour, low-carb bake mix, Splenda and sugar alcohols...the ones that don't cause serious gastric issues).  Though they were SUPER high in fiber and would give us the toots, so it really helped with portion control. Big grin

                          'Spose the Norwegians are to blame for the high price of butter around here?

                          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                            Luckily for us, it has nothing to do with the price of tea in china.

                             

                              I can't think of butter without thinking of Last Tango in Paris.  I assume this isn't a good thing to admit.

                               

                              However it's also reminded me that I have cookies to bake.
