Four years ago I stopped buying coffee at Starbucks and started making Bulletproof Coffee at home. In many respects, it was a game changer for my life. First, I have saved over 3,500$ in daily coffee runs. Secondly, the combination of fats and caffeine were synergistic magic in my body. After multiple surgeries, chronic fatigue syndrome and a toxic mold exposure, my brain did not want to turn on. The first cup I had was like someone throwing a switch and the lights came on in my head. I shifted from needing coffee all day to one cup situation which maintained my energy like a champ. Huge lulls in focus were gone and I just started to feel better. It was one piece of the puzzle that started to move things in the right direction. Thank you Dave Asprey (@creator of Bulletproof Coffee.)
1 Tsp Brain Octane Oil (Starting dose)
Here is MY VERSION of Bulletproof coffee. You will find a wild variation of brewing methods on the internet but I have found the best outcome with 12-16 oz brewed coffee in a Pour-over or French Press. To a blender add 1 Tbsp of Ghee butter (lactose-free) or grass-fed butter, 1 Tbsp of Brain Octane Oil, Stevia, and coffee. Blend on high for 10 to 15 seconds. Transfer to your favorite mug and enjoy your first cup of heaven.
With all things in life, you have an endless array of options. Some Mornings I’ll add collagen protein and others I’ll combine everything with a little bit of cacao butter to add the perfect chocolate flavoring. There is nothing wrong or imperfect about your method, feel free to create and throw caution to the wind. The few hardline rules are no adding carbs stay clear of combining processed ingredients in your coffee. Sugars in any form will negate the beneficial effects of a full-fat cup of joe in some degree. I will also advise going slow with the brain Octane oil, for some, it can cause digestive upset. Stay the course and I hope you find the same joy and mental clarity in the morning as I have. Know that somewhere on the other side of the world we are sharing the magic through time and space. If you are still confused here is a video of the original.
