RECIPE: Bulletproof Coffee

August 07, 2014

bulletproofSeveral months ago, I heard about this trend “Bulletproof coffee” and I’m not going to lie, I was a little terrified. Butter AND oil in my coffee? That sounds like a really bad way to start your day.

The idea behind Bulletproof coffee traces back to ancient Tibetan Butter Tea. The idea is that the oil and butter will energize and sustain your hunger longer than your average cup of coffee. 

I am one of those coffee drinkers that likes her coffee black or very sweet. There’s no in between for me, but I also understand that sweetener’s, syrups, and milk can cause my skin to flare up. Which is NOT what I’m after, so on my quest to drink less coffee, feel more energized, and keep my acne at bay — I discovered that the hype behind Bulletproof Coffee is very much real.

The joy of Bulletproof coffee is the way in which it leaves you energized for hours while burning fat, and it curbs your mid-afternoon crash and hunger pains.

The Recipe:

-2 tablespoons of grass feed unsalted butter

-1 (to 2) tablespoons of MCT Oil or Coconut Oil (I prefer Coconut oil)

-2 cups of coffee

photoThe How-to:

1) Brew your coffee as you generally would. I prefer a pour over or a french press if I’m sharing.

2) Get your blender ready. Any blender will work and in fact, if you have a french press, you can use it to froth your coffee with the plunger.

3) Pour coffee into your blender, add the oil, and the butter. Hit blend. Wait for the oil and butter to form a frothy (latte-like) film over the the top of the coffee and you’re all set. You can’t exactly over blend, but you can definitely under blend. It’s a balancing act of your preferences.

4) This is optional, but if you like a really sweet coffee here’s where you’d add in your stevia or pure paleo dark chocolate. I, personally add this while it’s blending to create the perfect flavor.

5) ENJOY.

Notes on the recipe:

The first time you try this recipe, you might want to scale down on the oil/butter until you know how your body will react to it. I worked my way up to this level of butter and oil.

The quality of the beans and brew do matter. The higher the quality of coffee, the better your body will feel. Low-grade coffees are processed differently and do not have the same benefits as the higher end coffees.

Lastly, enjoy! This recipe is widely used (and not created by me) online. There are hundreds of adaptations and that’s because this style of coffee is easily catered to the individual coffee drinker. You can customize until your heart is content.

Perky skin used to be effortless, remember? Back when you were 18, the fear of sagging skin didn’t come within a mile of your list of aesthetic concerns.

Unfortunately, the internal structure of skin changes for the worse as we get older. Collagen, elastin, and muscle tone lose their momentum and slowly surrender to gravity and time. This leaves you with a droopy face and sagging self-esteem.

But don’t schedule your facelift yet! Let’s dig into the real root causes of aging skin and sagging facial muscles. Once you understand the deep internal functions controlling your appearance, you can choose the best products, treatments, and supplements to restore a healthy, firm, lifted face.

If you believe you can heal a bone, you should believe you can heal your teeth.  If your teeth are sensitive and your gums are bleeding... you are on your way to internal diseases like heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, malabsorptions syndrom and more... 

How can cavities and gum disease lead to long-term dependence on medications?  If the dental products you use do not support a healthy environment inside your mouth that allows your saliva to protect you, remineralize your teeth, start the process of digestion and repair gum tissue.. you are on the road to gum disease and dental decay and the ONLY place that road ends is internal inflammation that results in heart disease, obesity, digestive problems (leaky gut, malabsorption syndrome), low birth weight (immunocompromised) babies, obesity, neurological issues and a whole lot more.  That road leads to health issues that are mainly treated with medications.

As your Natural Health and Beauty Nurse, I am not here to sell you a way to make you sick… I am here to show you how to support the healing processes you were born with.
