Good Fat v Bad Fat

For generations, millions of people have shared a similar morning routine. Regardless of where you live or what time you wake up, chances are, a pivotal part of your morning (and by extension, the rest of your day) involves sipping a cup of coffee. Coffee has been a staple for many people for so long due to the numerous benefits it provides; first and foremost being energy. For many people, simply catching the aroma of fresh brewing coffee is enough to make them shake off their fuzzy heads. The boost provided from that initial cup has the powerful effect of bringing the drinker “online”, symbolizing the official start to their day.
With this being said, it may be absurd to believe that there is any way to improve coffee. However, with a few simple ingredients, coffee drinkers will be able to fully tap the potential of their coffee and experience a new level of physical and mental energy. Enter Bulletproof Coffee. The concept is actually quite straightforward; simply combining coffee with highly beneficial and unappreciated fats. Over the past few decades, “fat” has become a buzzword, carrying along with it a slew of negative assumptions and emotions. However, the human body is extremely dependent on the right kinds of fat, and many people do not take in adequate levels on a daily basis.
First and foremost, it is important to understand the difference between “good” and “bad” fats. Naturally occurring fats that are high in Omega-3 fatty acids are the “good” fats and provide the body and brain with sustained energy and focus as well as appetite suppression. Moreover, Omega-3s are essential for joint lubrication throughout the entire body. Foods like nuts, avocados, eggs, coconut oil, and meat from grass fed animals are high in Omega-3s. This is the foundation for making Bulletproof Coffee.
To begin your Bulletproof Coffee foray, simply brew a pot of coffee using whatever method you prefer. Then, add 2 tablespoons of grass-fed butter, and one tablespoon of coconut oil to a blender. There are also more potent products on the market to substitute coconut oil like Medium Chain Triglyceride Oil (MCT oil) or Brain Octane oil. These substitutes are essentially more refined versions of coconut oil, providing a much stronger and concentrated amount of the healthy fat.
With the butter and oil in the blender, add your Bulletproof coffee beans and blend the mixture for about 30 seconds. The result is a creamy, frothy cup of coffee that tastes fantastic and provides long-lasting mental focus, physical energy, and appetite suppression. Once you have tried Bulletproof Coffee, you will never want to drink a regular cup of coffee again. That’s why LATimes says their coffee shops are popping up all over California, and why Billboard says celebs like Madonna are all over this trend.
