Coffee…Coffee and oh yes…coffee…Bullet proof?

This blog has been severely neglected in the past few months.  That is one of the best parts of a blog though, it will always be there when you return…

My last post was before the school year started, so that definitely attributes to the lack of posts.  With 4 kids and all of their activities, plus a full time job and a few side hustles, the blog is the last item on the list!

I want to share with you today, one key item that keeps me going. Some have heard of it, and maybe you have too?  Coffee.

It isn’t just any coffee though.  I am referring to Bullet Proof CoffeeIn another post, I told you that I subscribe to the Ketogenic diet. Well, Bullet proof coffee is one of the staples in that diet.

Bulletproof Coffee is a great way to get healthy fats first thing in the morning,” says Kerry Bajaj, a Be Well Health Coach at Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City. Having healthy fats first thing in the morning will signal to your body to burn fat for energy during the day. Starting the day with healthy fats also provides energy, is good for cognitive function, and can support your hormonal system.

BPC is also a great way to get calories and rev up your metabolism in the morning if you are someone who doesn’t normally have breakfast. The caffeine and blend of fats may also give you a boost of energy that will last for hours, and BPC drinkers also claim that they don’t get jittery from BPC as some do from normal coffee. This may be because the digestion of fats slows down the absorption of the caffeine.

I personally started with a pre-made BPC.  I was nervous to invest money into the materials needed.  And hey, after 25 years of drinking coffee, I can honestly say that the Barista a my local coffee shop was the one who made my coffee 95% of the time.

After my first taste, I was hooked!  I told my co-workers it was the high Octane fuel I needed to get through my graveyard shift!

So, I started doing a bit of research and found this great starter kit on amazon.  It had great reviews and made life pretty simple.

I also purchased a clever coffee dripper since I am the only coffee drinker in my house….one cup at a time is enough.

I also found some great youtube videos that helped this novice learn how to make a great cup of joe!  My favorite local coffee shop has some great tutorials: https://youtu.be/v4b7CZ7joUE

Bulletproof Coffee Recipe

Makes 1 serving

  • Brew 1 cup high quality, organic coffee
  • 1-2 tablespoons MCT oil (MCTs stands for medium chain triglycerides. Another term for “triglycerides” is fatty acids.)
  • 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter (like Kerry Gold butter)

Directions:
Combine all three ingredients in a high-speed blender for about 20 seconds, until the drink takes on a frothy, foamy consistency. Enjoy!

  1. I tried this when I was switching over from using cream and it is surprisingly better than I thought it would be. I only drink black coffee now though, I just can’t put anything in it. I can certainly see the benefits of providing energy though.

  2. Love me some bulletproof coffee! I was skeptical at first, and thought it wouldn’t taste good…but I was very wrong! Delicious way to start the day.

  3. Yum, Yum!! I love Dave Asprey and all he’s done in the coffee community. His Bulletproof recipe is a staple at so many coffee shops and I know in many more homes as well! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  4. I’ve never heard of this coffee. This sounds like a great way to start the day! I’m one of those bad breakfast-skipping people. If it comes down to sleep or food, I choose sleep, strangely enough. I’ll keep this in mind!

  5. I love coffee, but coffee and me don’t go well together. I think it’s my already high metabolism. My old coworkers knew when I drank coffee because they would see me go from zero to bouncing off the walls talking really fast in less then 5 minutes. Then a few hours later.. crash. I’ve never heard of Bulletproof Coffee though. I wonder if it would have the same effect.

  6. I had never heard of Keto until about a month ago and now I see it everywhere. You said you were hooked when you first tried the coffee… does it taste similar to ‘regular’ coffee? Is it bold? I’d like to consider it, but as a coffee-lover, sometimes it’s scary switching to something new!

    1. There are so many variations of this coffee (taste wise) that you could make it to your liking. I know there is a mocha version, and then you can add sugar free syrups to help too, if you don’t like this recipe.

  7. I can’t drink coffee anymore. But I have a ton of friends that do! I will have to tell them about this and show them your post!
