They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and rightly so! It kicks off our metabolism and gives us the energy we need to start the day off with a bang. But I must admit, sometimes, when I have to wake up early in the morning, the last thing I want to do is make a complicated breakfast. I want to grab something delicious and go. Now butter is one of my favorite breakfast ingredients. While it’s not the healthiest of the bunch, it’s actually healthier than many people think. Butter is rich in fat-soluble vitamins and it also contains a lot of healthy saturated fats, which raises your HDL (the good stuff) cholesterol and changes the LDL from small (bad!) to benign Large LDL. And hey, it goes without saying that even a little dab of butter can make even the most boring meals that much yummier!
But what happens when you grab the butter out of the fridge and it’s so cold that it’s pretty much like a solid brick that you can’t even cut through? How annoying! In these situations, I begin contemplating skipping the butter altogether. But then I come to my senses and I begin sawing away with a serrated knife, which may not necessarily be the safest solution. So what to do? I guess you could leave the butter out on the counter and wait for it to soften but could there be a better way? You bet!
In the video below, you’ll learn a very cool 30-second tip that will fix this problem for you forever. All you’ll need is a glass and some hot water. And just like that, your life just got that much easier!
