A New Take on Bulletproof Coffee
Would you like some butter with your coffee? How about some MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) or coconut oil? By now I’m betting you’ve heard of the growing trend that is bulletproof coffee and the benefits that are allegedly attached.
First, what exactly is bulletproof coffee?
- 2 cups of coffee
- 2 tbsp (grass-fed) butter
- 2 tbsp MCT or Coconut Oil
For our recipe we added a hint of mint, NOOMA! We recommend adding half a bottle of Chocolate Mint NOOMA to your bulletproof blend to keep the consistency right. Especially for those weary of taking that first sip, adding a NOOMA is a great way to smooth out your first try. Read below for some of the benefits that are associated with the trend and decide if you’re ready to hop on the buttery-coffee express.
Bulletproof Coffee Benefits
Grass Fed Butter & Coconut (MCT) Oil
It’s not news that coconut oil and butter are full of fats (both unsaturated and saturated), but it may be news that starting your day off with high fat concentration can improve hormonal balances and cognitive functions.
Not So Healthy Fats
Remember that unwanted fat that hangs out around your problem sections? Yeah, me neither…There is now increasing evidence that MCT oils are helpful in promoting small amounts of fat loss over time.
Whats Up Butter (Coffee) Cup?
Grass-fed butter actually contains the perfect ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, which will also help reduce body fat. See ya later lingering holiday pounds!
If you’re the type that sets their alarm fifteen minutes before they have to leave and has an “oh no, breakfast!?” moment 4 out of 5 times a week, bulletproof coffee may be a good solution for you. The healthy fats and calories contained in a cup of bulletproof coffee can help tide you over until your stomach starts grumbling for something more chewable.
