Over the Christmas period I've been looking more and more at paleo/primal/ real foods so I am rather new to most of the concepts. I've stocked up on Kerrygold butter and bought coconut oil and have been having bacon, liver , avocados etc. The rest of my family although open minding and quite enjoy eggs and bacon for breakfast are questioning the amount of saturated fats and cholesterol we are consuming. I have explained that saturated fats are good for us and that the past studies on saturated fats and wrong, however sometimes I feel that my argument are a little weak and I need more to back it up.
Anyway the title of my question is so because In trying to back up my point of view I read people are adding butter to anything and everything and massive quantities and that surprised me. Is this wise? I guess it must be but it's just goes so against the grain.

Yes, against the grain, quite literally. Honestly though, while I believe it always comes down to how an individual responds to a certain product, I would rather have the majority of this country consuming loads of grass-fed butter over ANYTHING on the SAD diet!
