Coffee that not only wakes you up but helps with daily performance.
It all started when a man named Dave Asprey had a cup of yak’s milk tea in Tibet. This tea gave him the boost he need in the -10 degree weather and left him with the need to learn how he could replicate that boost. Dave had quit drinking coffee for five years before hand because of the after effects (headaches, exhaustion…) but now he had a ground breaking idea to evolve the morning coffee. Dave created the Bullet Proof Coffee. Bullet Proof Coffee is made from 1 cup (8-12oz) of brewed organic high quality coffee, 1-2 tablespoons coconut or MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil, and 1-2 tablespoons organic unsalted butter made from grass fed cows, all of which is blended for 20-30 seconds.
This coffee is filled with nutrients essential for everyday living. The butter alone is filled with omega 3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin D, vitamin E, antioxidants, and butyrate (Asprey). It may sound gross to be drinking butter but in this recipe it give the coffee a natural creamy flavor.
The coconut oil or MCT oil is absorbed and converted to ketones. Ketones are great replacement for glucose and help fuel the brain. This means these oils can give you a boost for your day without the negative effects of a sugar crash.
Start your day out right by replacing the fattening cream and sugar in your coffee with nutrient filled products. Drink one cup and feel energized for the day without the negative crash that makes your reach for another and another and another… Start your day Bullet Proof.
