If you told me a year ago I’d be drinking unsweetened coffee every morning I would’ve laughed in your face. I was the girl who wanted all the Splenda and cream, with just a little bit of coffee. It’s funny how much your taste buds can change and adapt.
Whole30 really changed me. I started drinking my coffee black and actually liking it. After completing my first Whole30, I never looked back at sweeteners. Splenda who?!
I had seen fellow instagrammers posting about this magical “bulletproof coffee”, and was very intrigued. I did some research, and started putting some ghee and coconut oil in my coffee. I was a little hesitant at first, but was pleasantly surprised with the toasted, nutty taste and how much energy I had in the mornings.
I then ordered my first bottle of Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil. Uhhhh octane oil? That sounds intense. Yeah, I was intimidated too. But after reading about it, & seeing other people having positive experiences with it, I decided to bite the bullet and try it. Haha, get it? Okay, moving on... According to Bulletproof, Brain Octane is found in coconut oil in small quantities. But they concentrate it, which brings you the purest energy source possible.
So let me break it down for you--
What is Bulletproof Coffee?
It’s basically coffee mixed with healthy fats: such as ghee or butter, and coconut oil or MCT Oil.
Why drink Bulletproof Coffee?
Energy, productivity, and it keeps your tummy full!
Not only are you getting energy from the caffeine in your coffee, but also from the MCT Oil/coconut oil/Brain Octane Oil (whichever you prefer.) It gives your brain a big boost in the morning and helps to increase productivity. Although I don’t recommend skipping breakfast, if you’re in a rush and only have time to make your Bulletproof coffee, it will keep you full until lunch time. (Especially when you add a scoop of protein such as Collagen Peptides.)
Although you really only need coffee, ghee or butter, and coconut oil or MCT oil to make bulletproof coffee, I add a few extras to boost the flavor, make it creamy and keep me full longer.
