I put butter in my coffee - Here's Why

"Say WHAT?"  You put butter in your coffee?" Yes.  You read that right.  Some call it a health trend.  I call it amazing!  

Late last year my husband heard about Bulletproof Coffee and decided to give it a try.  I just thought he was drinking some kind of fru - fru coffee cause it tasted good or something.  He wasn't a coffee drinker so I was a little confused about his sudden coffee craze.  Well I started asking about it and turns out it is a magical drink. Ok, not really but it is pretty cool. 

We ordered the Bulletproof Diet book (which is a modified version of Paleo eating) where the breakfast course is a cup of bulletproof coffee with 2 TBSP of grass fed butter and a bit of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oil mixed in.  Now this Starbucks loving - dessert coffee girl was convinced this would be terrible.  BUT I did like the idea of improved cognitive function, hormonal support, creating fat loss and controlling cravings...so I decided I would give it a try. 

Truth: It does not taste half bad and after 2 months I can tell a difference in mental clarity, cravings and I have lost 14 pounds without trying too hard. SOLD.  I mean lets be honest, if I had to drink something that was nasty for those benefits I could make it happen but it's an added benefit that it tastes good too! I used to be ready for lunch at 11 every day and I struggled with cravings ALL DAY, EVERY DAY.  That's just not true now and I regularly find myself forgetting to eat until 1 or 2 because I am so satisfied from my Bulletproof Coffee breakfast.

Here is how I make my coffee: 

  • Brew one Bulletproof Coffee pod in our Keurig (I keep it super simple and order the pods so I don't have to take the extra time to french press coffee in the morning) with 8oz water.
  • Add 2 tbsp Grass Fed Butter 
  • Add 1 TBSP MCT Oil
  • Blend for 30 seconds with Hand Mixer
  • ENJOY and feel awesome!

Do you put butter in your coffee or are you going to try it? I would love to hear from you. 

Much love friends!  - Vicky
