Not Your Usual Coffee Shop Coffee
Bulletproof coffee isn’t simply just a couple of tablespoons of grass fed butter in coffee. Bulletproof coffee is the best of coffee brands, grass fed butter (unsalted), MCT oil (or coconut oil), and your choice of a natural sweetener such as stevia. When all of these ingredients are combined, you will likely experience the best flavored coffee you will ever have that isn’t terrible for you!
Isn’t Butter In Coffee Bad For You?
The truth is, your body needs essential and healthy fats. Despite what you have been told, fat isn’t something you should try to stir away from. Bad fats increase cholesterol and your risk of certain diseases, but good fats protect your heart and support overall health. Good fats, such as monosaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, and even some saturated fats such as coconut oil play a huge role in helping you fight fatigue, manage your moods, think more clearly, and even control your weight. The answer isn’t cutting out fats, but rather replacing them with healthy fats to help you live a healthier lifestyle.
Organic Coffee Over Myotoxic Coffee
Organic coffee should be used over non-organic coffee due to the amount of myotoxins in most large coffee brands. Myotoxins are a form of fungus that make their way into coffee by attaching themselves to dried coffee beans. Once myotoxins are attached to your coffee beans, those coffee beans will be grinded, processed, and may end up in your coffee cup. The only sure way of knowing that your coffee does not contain myotoxins are to not drink it, or to look for a toxin free label directly on your coffee brand. Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee Beans is a great tasting coffee with a myotoxin-free guarantee and is actually provided by David Asprey himself, the man who invented Bulletproof Coffee.
Flavored Coffee – What sweeteners can I use?
The MCT oil or coconut oil will actually sweeten the coffee more than you would think. The grass fed butter also gives the bulletproof coffee a delicious taste to it, but if it’s still not sweet enough for you, Stevia is a great sugar substitute. Stevia is is an herbal extract that has up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar without all the guilt. Personally, I add a quarter scoop of my whey protein to give it a bit more flavor and to ingest some much needed protein. Get creative, and add whatever makes it taste just right for you.
