I hear it in the news, I read it in the blogs, but until I tried it myself I just couldn’t buy into the “butter is better” anthem that has rung across the nation recently, not after decades of hearing that butter is bad. In my mission to eat a cleaner diet and let’s be honest fit a smaller dress size, I have resisted the “Grass-Fed Butter” bandwagon. I struggle with accepting that I should eat loads of butter in my quest for a slimmer waistline.
Today, I’m talking about filling up your tank with Bulletproof Coffee. In a nut shell, its high-octane coffee whipped with butter and topped with a good healthy dose of MCT Oil (Medium-chain triglycerides). David Asprey‘s story starts somewhere with a near-death experience in Tibet at 18,000 feet, saved by a cup of yak butter tea. Yah, I know… but stay with me on this one. From there, he developed the recipe for Bulletproof Coffee: a brilliant combination of three extremely healthy, extremely energizing, and extremely filling ingredients whipped into a cup of coffee that will get you through any morning without needing to reach for those jelly filled donuts. Note: If your tummy isn’t used to get healthy fats, you may need to give it time to adjust slowly. Adjust the recipe below to your liking and what your belly will tolerate!
Bulletproof Coffee: The Recipe
First off you must get good coffee, I mean GOOD. Not… “mmm Starbucks” good, but “mmm this doesn’t contain mold and toxins” good. Try Upgraded Coffee, it sounds amazing ! Next, you need some good UNSALTED Grass-Fed Butter, pick up some Kerry Gold Unsalted at your nearest grocery story chain or if you prefer order some Organic Ghee online. Last, you need a healthy dose of the coconut oil I wrote about recently.
Blend it all together with a hand-held blender and ta-da you’ve got yourself a hardy breakfast that will rev your engine! It’s creamy, it tastes naughty, and keeps you full all morning. All of this AND it burns fat… what’s not to love?
For a little added kick (and metabolism boost) I add cinnamon or pumpkin pie seasoning and a bit of vanilla extract. Full of creamy flavor creamy with NO sugar needed!!! Get your engine revvin’ today!
