Coffee and butter for breakfast?

Fancy a cup of coffee and whole lot of butter for breakfast?

One of the many things I came across doing the Keto diet, was trying to find something quick, easy and healthy, for breakfast. So, I introduce to you, Bulletproof Coffee ™.

It’s a drink that Dave Asprey, creator of Bulletproof brand, has become well known for, its made from butter, 8oz of filter coffee and MCT oil. Whip those together and you get a white frothy, tasty drink. The benefits of which I can tell you from personal experience is feeling of fullness, increased energy without the spike and crash that I would get from normal coffee, improved cognitive function. This normally lasts me until about 11am, then I started getting peckish.

There are some caveats to making a good cup of Bulletproof Coffee, which I have stolen from his website, they are this:

Not all coffee is created equal. The wrong coffee will sap your energy, trigger cravings, and leave you feeling tired and irritable. Lab-tested, mold-free coffee, on the other hand, will give you clean energy without the caffeine crash.

Only use grass-fed butter. Non-grass-fed butter has a different fat composition that doesn’t blend as well or taste as good as grass-fed butter. Grass-fed butter is also higher in essential nutrients that your body and brain crave.

Don’t forget your Brain Octane Oil. Brain Octane increases energy and brain function. If that’s not enough, it helps your body create energy from fat instead of sugar, turning you into a fat-burning machine.

You might want to go slow. If you’ve been on a low-fat or vegetarian diet for a while, increase your healthy fat consumption slowly. It might take your body a couple weeks to adjust. Don’t you dare use a low-fat butter substitute.

Digestive support may be necessary. Taking a betaine HCL or a digestive enzyme supplement will help your body digest the fat as you ramp up to digesting real food. This goes double for vegans or people who have been starving on low-fat or low-calorie diets.

Put down that sugar! If you must use a sweetener, use xylitol, erythritol, or stevia.

You can find the recipe and more info on this from this blog

My suggestion is don’t skimp when you are giving this a try, buy the quality products, because the difference in how you feel as well as the taste.
As for the rest of his products, I don’t know much about, so let me know if there are any good ones you know of.
