    Wow, I didn't realize until now that these popular fruits can be sauted in butter altogether. I am sure this is a healthy treat my kids and I will surely enjoy. Maybe there is a substitute for butter so that I can do away with the fat content.

    Hi Jane,

    With my special diet, I actually never worry about fat content. I find I need lots of fat and protein. But moderation is always important. I have no medical training, of course, but logically speaking butter is a real and I think real foods are better than substitutes. Especially if you can make your own!

    In our house we drink whole raw milk and it doesn't make me gain weight. Contrary to what you might think! Now if I eat a muffin, forget it, I gain three pounds from the grain and sugar.
