How Bulletproof Coffee Can Change Your Morning
Many swear by bulletproof coffee and there are good reasons! As well as providing you with your morning dose of caffeine in a consistent energy boost without a post-caffeine crash, you are also getting lots of nutrients that help you in many ways including curbing the mid-morning hunger cravings you’d get after an unsatisfactory breakfast, or no breakfast at all. As an added bonus, if you are on the keto diet, or one like it, it fits right in!
The 3 Basic Ingredients
- Brewed coffee
- Grass-fed butter
- MCT oil
The 2 Major Elements
- The quality of the ingredients: in order to get the benefits, you need to use ingredients that have nutrients. You must use 100% grass-fed butter, a high quality MCT oil and a good coffee.
- Blend: Because of the fats, if you don’t blend it all together you’ll end up with a coffee with an oil slick on top! Yes you’ll still get the benefits, if you drink it all, but drinking it all will be much easier if you blend it. Once blended you have a delicious creamy coffee that will get you hooked immediately.
What Makes These Ingredients So Great?
Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) help to boost your energy without the crash you get from caffeine alone. Because of the way they are metabolized in your body they give you benefits other fats do not. They are easier to digest than other fats and they help suppress hunger.
Using grass-fed butter is the same reason you want to only eat grass-fed meats: a healthy animal gives us healthy food. Grass-fed butter is packed full of nutrients that will make your body happy. These include omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, vitamins A, K, D, E and also antioxidents.It also contains butyrate which is a short-chain fatty acid, which has been shown to increase metabolism and improve gut health.
And then we added…
We add a little cinnamon to our bulletproof, it gives it a really nice flavor. Depending on what you like you can add all sorts of things to spice it up, should you desire, like ginger, vanilla, cayenne pepper, turmeric, which all have their own special added benefits. Just remember, it’s all in the quality of the ingredients you pick!
There is good reason that yak butter tea was a preferred morning drink for for thousands of years in the mountains of Tibet. As we all know now, good fats are not bad for us, they are in fact very good for us. Living on a low fat diet harms us by robbing us of the nutrients we need from fats. Fats also help us maintain a healthy metabolism and curb cravings. What better way to start your day with a nutritiously filled cup of coffee!
