You’ve probably heard of Bullet Proof Coffee (or BPC) as it’s been around a while in the paleo community. When I started Keto, I found this was another great way to get a big boost in my fat content right in the beginning of my day. And it’s DELICIOUS!
Part of the way I do Keto is with intermittent fasting. This means that from dinner until lunch the next day I don’t consume any actual food (if I’m working out I might have a snack after the workout because of my calorie depletion). This is what works for ME. If you want to understand the WHY behind my choice, then I again direct you to Dr. Mercolas book, Fat for Fuel.
I also do a total food fast one day a week, but that’s a post for another day…
So back to BPC! I drink this in the morning to get me through to lunch, get an immediate fat- fueled pick me up, and help up that fat intake. Here’s the recipe I use:
12oz organic coffee
1tbsp butter – I use Kerrygold
1tbsp MCT oil (basically coconut oil)
Apple pie spice – I use this amazing one by Primal Palette
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds. Pour into mug and enjoy a little cup of Heaven!
