Kick Start the New Year with Something REAL

We’re kicking the New Year off right with some must-have ingredients that’ll help you create healthy and delicious meals. Of course, Minerva Dairy 84% butterfat Amish Roll Butter tops our list!

The most important step in eating healthier is making sure your home is stocked with healthy ingredients with which to create delicious meals. This year, we’re sticking to the basics … real and wholesome ingredients.

Real butter: While some believe that margarine is healthier than butter, margarine tends to be high in saturated fats. So, next time you’re in need of butter, choose one that’s made with quality ingredients and has a high butterfat content.
All of Minerva Dairy’s butters are slow churned in small batches. They also contain 84% butterfat, which results in the best tasting and performing butter!minervadairy-dairyrecipe-buckwheatpancakes

Whole grains: Whole grains are full of protein, fiber, antioxidants and minerals. Whole grains help reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and some forms of cancer.
Try our Buckwheat Crepes with Pumpkin. They have whole grains for days!

Lean meats: Lean meats, such as chicken, turkey, pork and fish are not only low in dietary fats, but they are full of rich proteins that the body needs to build muscle. They are also a good source of iron and B-complex, which promotes healthier blood.

Cooking with these real and wholesome ingredients will have you starting your New Year off on a lighter (and more flavorful) note! Cheers to a year filled with real home cooking and real ingredients.
