Ever get frustrated when you need a soft pad of butter and you go to your butter dish but it’s empty, so then you have to try to scrape thin layers of cold butter trying to make it spreadable at that instant.  Here’s an idea for you.  I just came across this while reading Lorna Vanderhaeghe’s book Sexy Hormones (doing a little research, it’s a great book to have on hand whether you’re a doctor or a patient!  Great insight on how our hormones are supposed to function and how to heal them naturally if they’re off).  After reading thru the recipe, it was kind of a DUH moment for me…but I wanted to post it as I think it will help a lot of you!

Better Butter
Makes About 2 Cups

1 lb or 4 sticks of organic/raw butter
1 c organic flaxseed or olive oil

Cut butter into pieces and put into food processor.  Blend slowly streaming in the oil, until smooth.  Move to air tight container and store in refrigerator.  Now you’ll have spreadable butter, healthy Omega-3 packed, whenever you need it!
