Ghee and clarified butter (the two are slightly different) are actually better than butter because milk solids are removed. Isn't it the milk proteins that tends to plug up sinuses, not the pure fat? Maybe ghee or clarified butter will cut down on the snot.
Doesn't have to be coffee. Bulletproof works for tea and hot cocoa too.
Watch out on the coconut oil! CO gives a lot of people the runs even in small amounts. 2 tablespoons+ of CO is too much for anyone IMO, plus it would have too much coconut taste.
Hint for cream: Freeze cream or half&half in ice cube trays. Drop one or two cubes into coffee/tea when you need it. That way it won't go bad so you don't have to think about using it up fast. My only problem is that the frozen cream sticks to plastic so it's hard to crack out of the tray. Maybe those new flexible silicone ice cube trays would work better.

5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 111 on sugar cheat. Currently fighting off sugar/candy cravings with bulletproof cocoa and a little rice.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
