Bulletproof Coffee

 

Hey guys, Casey here. Normally Annie would use this time to drop real food recipe knowledge bombs all over you, but this week I ran into a coffee recipe that is delicious, nutritious and just might make you bulletproof. That’s right, I’m talking about Bulletproof Coffee from the Bulletproof Executive. Actually, I started drinking this coffee because of the guys at fitr.tv, an awesome podcast about Crossfit, strength, weightlifting, etc. Its hilarious and crazy informative. Be warned though, these guys tend to swear more than you would want your children to hear.

Anyway, back to the coffee. Its super simple:

1 cup of coffee (preferably organic)
1 TBS Kerrigold or other grass-fed butter
1 TBS coconut oil
A bunch of cinnamon to taste

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend thoroughly. Pour into your cup and enjoy the foamy deliciousness. It really has a latte-like vibe to it. Now, before any nervous nancies panic about the fat content of this drink, remember that good fats are good. If you’re new to the gym this is something you’ll learn in the upcoming nutrition class.

Okay everybody, grab your umbrella because I’m going to rain some knowledge down on you. The fats in coconut oil are referred to as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are an excellent energy source in that they are quickly absorbed into your system to be used as a long-burning energy source.

Have you tried Bulletproof Coffee before? If so what did you think? If not, are you going to try it? Post to comments and let me know.
