Yes. Butter and mayo are not good for you and the vegan substitutes are generally better. I don't use either though (vegan butter or vegan mayo). I use olive oil quite a bit and mustard for things you'd use mayo with. I firmly believe animal food products are not good for our bodies.

A healthy mayo substitute is nasoya (sp?). Less fat/calories. Earth balance has just as many calories I think but I'd say its a bit healthier.
