BIOHACKING WITH BULLETPROOF COFFEE AND MCT OIL

We’re constantly on the search for the holy grail of caffeinated beverages. Our Nespresso machine lights up our mornings. When we get new pods and seasonal flavors, our coffee station becomes our playground. Froth some oat milk, sprinkle some cinnamon and voilà- a perfect cup each time. But as we all know, sometimes you find yourself in the mood to experiment with new brands and trends. We tried bulletproof coffee on a whim and have become obsessed with the taste and energy it gives us.
Bulletproof coffee is frothy coffee elixir made with butter or ghee and coconut oil or MCT oil. Typically, it is drunk on an empty stomach as a breakfast substitute. We were skeptical to replace smoothie bowls and frittatas with a high-fat drink. Wouldn’t we be hungry and gain weight? The short answer is no. Healthy fats can help control blood sugar levels, keeping you fuller for longer. Consistent use can help your body burn fat, instead of carbohydrates and sugar, for energy.
Our favorite recipe that tastes great and gives us mountains of energy at 6 AM is shared below!
Ingredients:
  1 Vanilla Custard Pie Nespresso pod (8 to 16 oz coffee of choice)
  1 tablespoon of Ghee
  1 tablespoon of MCT oil
We chose to use ghee and MCT oil (an oil extracted from coconuts that is virtually tasteless and odorless). Studies show that MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) oil increases metabolic rate, curbs appetite, supports hormones, promotes mental clarity and supercharges exercise performance and endurance.
Directions:
  Blend all ingredients for 45 seconds. Pour into your favorite coffee mug and enjoy!
We also keep our fridges stocked with Super Coffee that contains 200 mg of caffeine and MCT oil, as a quick grab and go option. They are made with sugar free, lactose free, soy free and gluten free organic ingredients. Our favorite part is that we can sneak in an extra 10 grams of protein into our diets just by drinking our morning coffee!
