Three cheers for butter! I heard this story this morning on NPR. It seems the average American now eats 5.6 pounds of butter a year. Of course, that’s quite a lot less than the 1930’s version of us that ate 18 lbs, but it’s a start! The story itself is well worth a listen as well as a read, David Greene was clearly a bit put off by the thought of people eating that much butter. I find the story refreshing. After all, butter is perfectly healthy for you, delicious, and natural.
