Fitness Friday and Bulletproof Cofee
Have you guys heard of Bulletproof Coffee? Well I just heard about it and it’s basically putting grass feed butter in your coffee. A friend who told me about tit said that it curbs your appetite, gives you more energy, and somehow makes your waist smaller. I’m like what! I’m def gonna try that! I read that the recipe has been around for ages and its kinda a beauty secret. Hmm. I also hear they are opening a bulletproof coffee shop in Santa Monica on Main Street if you live in the La area. My personal experience for the past 4 days of drinking my butter coffee has been fine. I would not say that I feel a huge difference. I actually feel good about putting that healthy fat in my body early in the day. A old awesome Korean woman told me that not enough protein and good fat will make my skin loose… More on that in another post. I am going to keep drinking my bulletcoffee and I will keep you posted on if I start to feel a huge difference. In the meantime here is the recipe
HOW TO MAKE BULLETPROOF COFFEE
• Brew your coffee as you normally would in terms of boldness, but use only organic coffee, which is free of toxins and pesticides. It’s worth the extra dough. Estimates say conventional coffee farms apply as much as 250 pounds of chemical fertilizers on every acre.
• Pour 1 to 2 cups of coffee (8 to 16 ounces) into a blender. Add 1 tablespoon of MCT oil (or coconut oil) and 1 tablespoon of grass-fed unsalted butter. (You can add up to 2 tablespoons each, but begin with 1 tablespoon until you acquire a taste for it.)
• Mix at high speed for 30 seconds to one minute until texture is frothy, or longer if it appears “lumpy” from the butter.
• If the coffee tastes bitter, sweeten with a teaspoon of cinnamon or vanilla. Splenda and Stevia can be used in a pinch, but don’t rely too much on them. Do not add sugar — the resultant insulin spike will counteract many of the energizing benefits from the butter, coffee and oil. – See more at: http://www.musclemag.com/article/should-you-drink-bulletproof-coffee#sthash.EFwBcK37.dpuf
