Food Stuck in your Throat? Try Butter

Why didn't I think of this before?

Yesterday, while munching on a carrot, some of the carrot got stuck in my throat. Realizing that this never happens when I eat vegetables with butter, mayonnaise or salad dressing, I had the bright idea to put a pat of butter in my mouth and let nature take its course. It greased my throat and the carrot went down.

As a preventive measure, I find taking a magnesium supplement helps. (I take 200 mg of magnesium glycinate daily.) Magnesium is needed for proper involuntary muscle function: it's a standard cure for constipation, and doctors give it to patients having a heart attack.

Well, we all know that butter is far better than margarine!

But in this case what a good aid ......
Good thinking Lori

All the best Jan

And I figured out yesterday that you can make mayonnaise with melted butter.
