    Question New to Primal - What is bulletproof coffee? And...

    Shop Now
    Hi Everyone,
    I'm new to primal, so every week is a new learning experience. This week, I keep reading about "Bulletproof" coffee? Would someone please tell me what that is?

    Also, is butter allowed on primal or not? I use Kerrygold on my veggies (yum!) and coconut oil for cooking. Should I "kick" my butter habit?

    Thanks so much!
    Debra

    Butter is primal, but many aren't really tolerant. If you start stalling on your goals you might want to cut all dairy for 30 days a test.

    Or try coconut oil instead. I actually really enjoyed coconut milk in my coffee. Now I'm off coffee completely due to allergies.

    I wonder what ghee would taste like in bulletproof coffee/tea? I know it's still technically butter, but it does have all the milk solids taken out.

    Thanks for the thread because in a previous comment I said how can you have oily coffee but in the recipe you blend the coffee and butter until frothy and you don't get the oiliness - I may give it a try.
    So this bulletproof coffee can keep hunger at bay. Still need to look up whether adding fat negates some of the antioxidant benefits - I'm sure I read that somewhere.

    I wouldn't worry about the very minor anti-oxidant benefits you get from coffee being negated by MCT and butter. You're using it for a vehicle for the MCT and butterfat, any a/o you get on top is just gravy.

    That said, I still think BP coffee is a sucker bet...it's tasty, it packs a lot of fat in, but it's not particularly quick and if you follow the "rules" it's hella expensive too. Personally, I'd rather have a load of protein and fat equaling the same calories for breakfast. With a cup of MCT-loaded coffee on the side.

    I have an aerolatte that speeds up the process a lot. aerolatte It's a little hand-whipper that froths up drinks. I saw the same thing for sale at the gourmet grocery store in the cocktail gadgets department. Only takes a couple of seconds to whip the oils in and make it foamy and frothy.
