Lucky for us, Minerva Dairy butter isn’t just better for your taste buds – our ridiculously good butter is also great for your health.  How could something so delicious be so good for you?  Minerva butter is made from nutrition-packed pasture-raised cow milk and is packed with omega-3’s, beta-carotene and other vitamins that your body needs to stay healthy and happy.

One way to bring more better butter into your healthy eating plan is by following a Ketogenic (also known as Keto) diet.  The Keto Dieters reduce the amount of carbohydrates they eat and replace them with fat and protein-rich foods such as meats, eggs, nuts, cheese, and of course, butter.  A Keto diet can help you burn fat more efficiently, lose weight, increase energy and lower blood sugar and insulin levels.  We’ve put together a healthy and delicious buttery 5-day keto meal plan to help you kick start your new year’s resolutions with hearty helpings of better butter.
