When I started researching ketogenic diets after my hiatus I kept coming across mentions of “bullet proof coffee”. The article by guy who came up with it is linked here. Every morning I brew fresh ground coffee in a stainless steel French press. Adding butter to coffee seemed like a travesty.
But I think the repetition got to me. I decided to try this “bullet proof coffee”. At least I agreed with the guy that Starbucks is garbage. I always use good whole coffee beans so all I had to buy was Kerrygold unsalted grass fed butter. Wow, I never realized how bad ordinary organic butter tasted until I tried this.
Bulletproof coffee when blended looks like a latte. The taste is smooth and creamy. This is all I had this morning before yoga. Between yoga and spin I had a couple bento-box balls. I went through 80 oz water+nuun in spin class (1.5 hr). No hunger, no energy slump.
When I came home I was excited to find my husband and son in the kitchen. “YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS!” I got out three mugs and whipped up another batch. The guys were skeptical at first, understandably, but they liked it. Our 13-year-old added sugar to his, completely defeating the purpose. My husband summed it up in one word, “delicious.”
