Bulletproof coffee is where it all started for me. It’s one of the quickest & easiest ways to start feeling amazing. Obviously this isn’t the end all be all, it won’t cure all your ailments. But it will give you a glimpse of the potential we all have to feel amazing each & every day. Alive & bursting with energy & mental focus is the best way to describe it. Everyone always has the same reaction when you tell them you put butter in your coffee. They give a look of disgust & say man that must be bad for you because of all the fat. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Despite common misconception. Grass fed butter or Ghee is a healthy fat & optimizes cholesterol levels & blood chemistry. There is so much information on cholesterol & heart disease that I want to dedicate a whole blog post or two about it. For now I’ll do my best to describe each aspect of bulletproof coffee & why it’s so beneficial.
I’m not going to lie, when I started experimenting with bulletproof coffee I ordered MCT oil from amazon & got the kerrygold unsalted grass fed butter from Sprouts. I didn’t buy the low toxin coffee idea for awhile. I used what we had at home as far as coffee & still felt pretty amazing results. As time went on I ordered all bulletproof products as the research I did validated all the claims & couldn’t be happier with the results.
You start with the Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee Kit that has a different mental affect than most other coffees & yes that includes starbucks. There is a huge problem that not a lot of people are aware of involving mold toxins that grow on the beans through the harvesting process. This mold toxin issue isn’t limited to coffee beans but won’t elaborate on this now. I’ll just say that these toxins are common in foods that originate in the tropics. These toxins create inflammation in our bodies & counteract the very thing we need so badly to avoid. Then you blend the coffee with grass fed, unsalted butter or ghee. Which has short chain fatty acids your brain needs for anti-inflammatory purposes. Then add coconut oil or ideally mct oil which is a extract of coconut oil that’s 6x stronger. I like to add a packet of stevia to sweeten it up. It taste amazing, there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t have bulletproof coffee. It’s amazing the affect it has on satiety, keeps you full for a good 6-8 hours. Also our bodies burn mct oil for energy with out any digestive process required. Adding MCT oil to your diet will promote weight loss & will help to prevent food cravings.
I know it’s not going to be for everybody but you should at least give it a try. There are so many benefits to be had by getting these short & medium chain fatty acids that are usually very hard to get into our diets.
