  • Bulletproof coffee is AMAZEBALLS!

    I've jumped on the Bulletproof coffee bandwagon. For the last three days, I've had 1tbsp grassfed butter (not Kerrygold, some Icelandic brand) with my morning coffee. The resulting energy and mental clarity is amazing! During the morning hours I've been completely awake and focused/interested in my work. The feeling is similar to when I used to (ill-advisedly) take adderall as a college kid to pump out 30 page papers overnight - albeit via a much much healthier means. I suppose my body was screaming for MOAR FAT?

      I've been thinking about giving this a go too! Do you have this as breakfast, or along with it? And does it matter what coffee you are drinking? (ie: does it need to be organic/pure/perfect etc?)

        Do a search for the longer thread, there will be more details there. Monday/Tuesday I had mine alone, today I was hungry so I had some eggs with it. I'm not using organic coffee ... just using what the office provides. Also, I haven't been doing a blender since I'm at work, but pouring the hot coffee over the butter in a blender bottle (with a whisk ball) and shaking has been working fine.

          I've also done it with coconut oil. The butter goes into solution better, but it seems to also float to the top faster as the coffee cools. Coconut oil becomes frothier but seems to stay in solution better. Just observation because I tend to nurse a cup of coffee rather than chug it.

          As with anything primal/paleo, you go with the best you can. I buy organic beans, but I lived for years not worrying about organic stuff. The butter, though, should be pastured imo. Otherwise, you're pretty much just adding a nasty fat to your coffee, and primal does speak to healthy fats.

            You don't know AMAZEBALLS until you have had a BP Coffee with a whole stick of Kerrygold butter...please refrain from using the term to describe your watered-down version.

            Also, DO NOT say a blender bottle is 'just fine'.

            Once you've had a BP coffee made with a whole lotta butta in a real blender, where the foam stands up and tickles your nose, then you will see what I mean.

              Haha I stand corrected! I think I'm going to try 2tb tomorrow. I only mentioned the blender bottle because bringing a blender into my law office may be frowned upon!

                Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! I love drinking rendered bacon fat. It's AmazeBalls when I go to the bathroom. Don't ruin your coffee by putting butter in it. Well, if your drinking Folgers, by all means!!!!

                  Just messing with ya...I've used a blender bottle with good results, too. I was using 4-8TBS, though! Gave it up as it was just too much fat for me. Tasty, though!

                    I love my morning Bulletproof coffee!!

                    I use 2 cups of strong black coffee (K-cups Green Mountain Dark Magic), 2 tbsp Kerrygold unsalted, 2tbsp CO and a pinch of cinnamon. I pour some hot coffee over the oils to melt them somewhat, then blend with an Aerolatte until thick and frothy. Add rest of coffee and enjoy.

                    Delicious, and chock full of energy!!

                      Butter is great, but try adding some coconut oil also, or pure MCT oil if you have it and can tolerate it. The MCTs combined with the butter and coffee really help with the mental clarity and energy.

                          I make a different version...espresso + 2 tbsp coconut oil + 1 egg yolk + dash of cinnamon.
                          SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!
                          sometimes i add butter but i live in the boondocks and can't get the really good stuff so tend to abstain.

                          I use my a hand blender and bring that to work. Sometimes it's enough, other times i also drink a green shake (kale/spinach, berries, whey protein, coco nibs, maybe 1/2 avocado, water)

                            Bulletproof coffee comes from the "Bulletproof Executive". He's a blogger that promotes a high fat, paleo diet, and urges users to avoid toxins at all costs. His website is The Bulletproof Executive.

                            He classifies himself as a "Bio-hacker", interesting blog, but I'm sure not going to pay his premium prices for his brand of coffee.

                              Some good information there. A good organic fair trade coffee is fine. A good pastured butter is fine. Lots of free info. My only financial contribution is my eyes on any specific website.
