Bullet proof coffee has been the big thing lately in the nutrition world, especially in the Paleo community. Of course I had to try it and see what all the hype was about. Since then this is how I’ve made my coffee every morning. It’s a great way to get more gelatin and coconut oil in your diet, two super foods. If you haven’t tried coconut oil and started to incorporate it into your diet yet you need to get on that! Coconut oil deserves its own post but I want to share some of the major benefits of this healthy fat. Coconut oil can actually burn fat in the body. Farmers began giving coconut oil to their cows in hope that they would put on more fat, but instead the cows all became extremely lean. The same thing happens in us. Coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides that increase energy expenditure in the body. Coconut oil can also reduce your hunger. If I’m going to be working out first thing in the morning I drink my bulletproof as my pre work out and don’t need to eat until after my workout.
10oz of hot brewed coffee
2 tbs grass-fed Great Lake's gelatin (only the green one will work in this recipe)
1 tbs coconut oil
stevia or maple syrup if needed
1- Place all ingredients into a blender and blend for 30 seconds
Yours in Health & Happiness,
