Bloo - I am not sure you need organic butter, don't forget dairy product in Europe (especially butter) are a lot better and more pure than those in the US. I use kerrygold butter which is an Irish butter, I find it tastes the best (Most Irish Butters taste good) if you can find that then go for it...

Kerrygold is available in Germany, Ill give it a try. Actually, I never believed it was really Irish, but maybe I was wrong.

I'm not familiar with it here in Canada, but maybe it's a "style" of butter, rather than referring to a country of origin. Some tweak to the manufacturing process, maybe?

Sandy, Shovelqueen, I heard on TV that Kerrygold was produced in Munich ... they made fun of the marketing approach ... But Ill check the label today when I go shopping for the weekend, the country of origin should be written somewhere.

The country of originon on mine is Republic of Ireland, but  may be they have a production in Germany as well, so may be yours is produced in Munich.

I personally like the Kerrygold taste   :D , but I know others taste may differ.

I will buy a stick after I finished the last local butter from my home town (some of the cows I know personally ;)
But I still like cream better ... Somehow its more satisfying. A great lowcarb fast food.

Oh, bloo, you are so lucky to have locally produced butter!  Why would you consider buying a product that may have travelled thousands of km's, when you have "personally known" butter so close by? 

I buy my eggs from my friends 8 km away (just around the corner in rural Canadian terms), and I've met her chickens.  It's a great feeling to eat so locally.  I'm picking up a couple dozen more in an hour or so.

Fresh eggs are so much better tasting than store bought.
I can't imagine how good really fresh butter must taste.
If I ever come across some, I am going to snatch it right up!

I use to get local raw butter that was bright orange and tasted almost like cheese.  It was incredible!  I'm going to see if I can get some more when the farmer's market opens for the season.

I have a friend whos father is a farmer with 40 milk cows and I can get raw milk there. *yummy*, I also get organic eggs from another friend.
And then we have many organic farms that deliver to your doorstep, you can "subscribe" to different assortments. The veggies taste incredible ...

Ill have to try their cheese assortment once I stop the dairy challenge.

bloo - how is the dairy challenge going? (I assume you cut out all dairy for now?) Are you noticing any differences?

Platinum, I had to lower my overall protein intake somewhat. I dont have time to cook during the day, so I would eat low carb "fast food" like cottage cheese or yoghurt a lot, maybe too much. I love dairy stuff and I tolerate them well, but since I am insulin resistant, I seemed to react to the glucose metabolised from protein. My energy levels were low, I was slightly depressed. When I started SLD my appetite and metabolism decreased and it made me feel pretty bad.

Sandy then suggested that my fat intake was too low and I decided to go on a high fat diet and cut out cottage cheese and yoghurt and allow cream and butter. And that helps a lot. I feel energetic again. I have a feeling that fat is the key in my diet and as crazy as it may seem (and it may not be working for anyone) 70-80% is what I need in a day.

One of the reasons I was suspecting high protein may not be good for me is the acid it produces, causing cellulite and hair loss. Whenever I ate what theoretically was right for me, I was overacidified. Carbs and protein are acidifying, but fat is totally neutral.

So I drink a lot of water and try to have some green veggies, mostly broccoli, with every protein food (or some fruit). My fridge is full of eggs, but I only eat the yolks, sometimes even raw. Since I was used to having whey protein shakes a lot, I mix the yolks with a little cream. Well, I even like it. *g*

Sandy, nice quote ;) Call me "cream girl", heehee.

Sounds good! Glad you found something that works for you!

Unfortunately, I have to stop the butter for SLD, today was my last day. It seems the butter is causing me gastritis pains similar to the way carbs do, maybe its the fat without any protein to soak up the sotmach acid, but I think I have to just stick with nose clipping some of my meals for now.

BTW, I've mixed raw egg yolks with cream too and I love it! You know you can actually make an almost zero carb ice cream with that? Just add a little stevia and something else and freeze it and you got some...I have a recipie somewhere if you're interested. I don't make that stuff though because I know it wouldn't last more than 1 day LOL
