Where to find Mother's Margarine

Does anyone know where I can order this margarine online and have it shipped to me? I find a few stores, but it's all pick-up. Has anyone found somewhere that ships it?

Earth Balance buttery spread is also ok. It has salt, but my husband called the manufacturer and they said it was plain, non-iodized land salt. It also doesn't have any dairy. It does have soy oil, but my paperwork says we can have soy oil, but not other soy products. Someone on this list found a version of Earth Balance without the soy oil.

How about Fleischmann's unsalted margarine?

Fleischmann's salt free, dairy free is the best option and available at most stores. The stick variety is the one to look for.

I just looked up Earth Balance and they do have one with no soy and also a coconut spread. The are available at Whole Foods in my area (NJ). I will be starting LID November 29. Definitely going to visit Whole Foods to explore options.

i personally would recommend avoiding ALL varieties of margarine and go with straight butter if that is an option...you can get that unsalted without any problems...

Unfortunately bitter isn't an option, NO DAIRY :(

Yes, butter is an option. Strange but true. Both the diet on this website and the won I was given at the hospital list butter as an acceptable option as long as it is unsalted. Unsalted margarine is also fine. Frankly, I don't understand why is soy is not allowed, soy margarine is, but it is.

Butter was definitely NOT approved on the diet I followed. All dairy was to be avoid, to include butter, salted or unsalted.

If one checks the cookbook on this site (page8 ) it definitely says no butter or dairy. I have seen the odd diet info on some sites refer to a small amount used (cream in coffee) but generally no dairy at all is recommended.

I found the Earths Balance butter at Wal-Mart the red package has no soy, no dairy, plain salt, it is in the top shelf near the other butter / margarine concoctions.
