Bulletproof Coffee, It’s Just the Beginning!

It is no secret that I LOVE coffee. Pouring myself a hot cup of delicious coffee is just about the first thing I do every morning. And…I’m a bit of a coffee snob too. Cream and sugar, those are for other people. Until recently, I always had my coffee steaming hot and black.

012-watermarkedWhen I started to write this article, I was trying to remember the first time I ever had coffee.  Although I couldn’t recall specifics, I am pretty sure I developed my love for coffee back in high school. Which believe me, was not yesterday…lol.

When I started working as a nurse, a cup of coffee soon became an early morning and break time ritual. Then when my kiddos were little, I worked permanent nights at our regional hospital.  That way, I would be home with the kids during the day.  When my hubby came home from work, he would take over and I would head to bed, sleep for a few hours, go back to work…come home and repeat…repeat…repeat for the next several years.

As you may imagine, that work schedule and resulting lack of sleep lead to my drinking, even more, coffee in my attempt to stay alert and focused while working in a fast-paced, high-stress environment.

Although loads of caffeine did keep me awake and alert, the side effects were brutal and definitely not healthy:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Food cravings
  • Frequent urination
  • Jitteriness
  • Nausea

Oh, how I wish I had known about Bulletproof™ Coffee with Brain Octane™ Oil back then! Instead of overloading on caffeine and suffering the brutal side effects, I could have a cup of Upgraded Bulletproof™ coffee (or tea, hot chocolate) with Brain Octane™ Oil and unsalted grass-fed butter and achieve an even better cognitive result, with no unwanted side-effects.

I have recently started drinking Bulletproof™ coffee daily . Even after drinking Bulletproof™ for just the past week, I have already observed some rather noticeable changes:

  • I feel full longer…I guess that’s why I have lost some weight. Four pounds to be exact!
  • I have more energy and feel less fatigued.
  • I can think more clearly.

All amazing things to have happen anytime, but especially during this extremely busy time of the year!

If you are not familiar with Bulletproof™ Coffee, in a nutshell, it is:

  • Upgraded Coffee blended with grass-fed unsalted butter (or Ghee) & Brain Octane™ Oil
  • Low-toxin, high performance & full of healthy fats to fuel your body
  • Brain Octane™ Oil contains 16x the healthy fats of Coconut oil and improves your health and energy with regular use.
  • Brain Octane Oil’s effects can near-always be felt instantaneously.

Good coffee (such as Bulletproof™ ) –

  • Can promote brain function, memory, energy levels and serves as a massive source of antioxidants and is associated with all sorts of positive health outcomes. It is low in toxin, high performance & full of healthy fats to fuel your body.
  • Brain Octane™ Oil (which is a key ingredient of Bulletproof coffee), helps you burn fat, quick source of reliable energy from fat (not sugar), supports cognitive performance and is made from 100% coconut oil.

Bad coffee –

  • The wrong coffee can sap your health and hurt your performance. It is almost always contaminated with mycotoxins.  Mycotoxins are damaging compounds created by molds (yuck) which grow on coffee beans (among other things).
  • Mycotoxins are in almost all low-quality brands of coffee. Cheaper coffee varieties cost less because they use poor quality beans.  One study showed that 91.7% of green coffee beans were contaminated with mold.
  • These compounds cause all sorts of health problems like cardiomyopathy, cancer, hypertension, kidney disease, and even brain damage.  They also make your coffee taste bitter like it needs sugar. (Before I started drinking premium coffee, I would often notice this bitter taste!)

Being the coffee purist that I am, I never in a million years thought these words would come out of my mouth, but here they come! Try adding grass-fed ghee (or grass-fed, unsalted butter) and Brain Octane Oil to your coffee!

Yes, you heard me correctly! I am suggesting you put butter and Brain Octane Oil in your coffee! Man oh man, I was so skeptical of this but gave it a try.  I am here to tell you, not only is coffee healthier when prepared this way (recipe below) it results in the silkiest, most delicious coffee you will ever drink.

With the holiday season now upon us, I am pretty sure most of us could use an energy boost. Mix up a batch of this recipe for REAL Bulletproof™ Coffee and you’ll be ready to conquer the world, not only during the hectic holidays but every day!

020-watermarkedThis deliciously creamy recipe for REAL Bulletproof™ Coffee is a snap to make.  Just brew up your Bulletproof™ Coffee.  Add in 1-2 tablespoons of Brain Octane™ to the hot coffee (It’s STRONG – start with 1 tsp. and work up over several days).  Add 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or grass-fed ghee

Mix it all in a blender (or use an immersion blender, like I did) for 20-30 seconds until it is frothy like a foamy latte and enjoy!
