One of my favorite drinks or sometimes breakfast is Bulletproof coffee. Gives me enough energy and fat to start the day. Butter in your coffee may seem weird to you but it’s just another version of cream and it all comes from cow’s milk anyhow. It’s better than cream or milk because butter has minimal amount of casein which is the protein that most of us are intolerant to and it causes all sorts of digestive issues and inflammation. Butter is amazing for you. It is high in vitamin A and D and has a high concentration of short-chain saturated fat butyric acid which is fuel for choice. It’s a healthy fat that we need for cellular function in our body and keeps the digestive system on track. Then there’s Brain Octane which is derived from coconut oil and produces ketones in your body that breaks down glucose and carbs and supports healthy digestion. It gives me focus and mental clarity to work all day. It’s another healthy fat. And remember, you need fat to burn fat!
12-16 oz of organic high quality coffee or Bulletproof coffee (I prefer coffee made from a french press but this is your choice.)
1 tbsp of butter or ghee (You can adjust to 1-2 tsp based on your preference)
1 tbsp of Brain Octane or MCT Oil (Brain Octane is what I prefer and you can use 1-2 tsp. Your preference!)
Put all ingredients in blender and blend for 30 seconds. It blends into a delicious frothy and creamy drink.
