Last year I gave a nutrition seminar and I got a few very strange looks when I mentioned I put butter in my coffee. Have you heard of this stuff yet? I am talking about bulletproof coffee and it’s ever increasing popularity especially amongst the Primal/Paleo community.
Oh yeah, don’t you guys put butter in your coffee, sounds gross, doesn’t it? Believe me I know it sounds weird and I was very skeptical myself, especially as I was in the process of pouring hot coffee over a hunk of butter into my blender. As the blender was blending, for a brief moment I thought, “well I guess I have officially lost my mind, I have gone way too far down the nutritional rabbit hole”, but after about 30-sec of blending I had a creamy, frothy, beverage that look just like a latte and tasted great. I was also amazed at the amount of energy I felt throughout the day, I had a nice mellow “coffee buzz” for most of the day, no jitters or that crash feeling, just consistent energy. So long story short, I have now been drinking Bulletproof coffee nearly every morning for about one year and I absolutely love it!
*Robin Rogers was one of the first gym members to actually try the coffee and she absolutely loves it. Written by Robin: “I’ve been drinking bulletproof for the last 3 months. In the first Ten Week Challenge, Garett told us that he drinks coffee with butter. We all had a good laugh! Never once did the thought occur to me to try it. When I finally got my diet free of sugar and grains, and I stopped having ups and downs with being hungry, I think the term is my body was finally fat adapted…. Garett suggested that I try having Bullet Proof Coffee: coffee with MCT oil and grass-fed butter. I started introducing it in my morning routine and it was delicious. I was not hungry till noon and I lost 8 inches the first month. I was hooked. I love the creaminess of the coffee and it gives me energy. I have it every morning!”
Ok, but why butter?
