I didn’t start drinking coffee till I was 28 years old. I made it through High School, College, and Graduate School without one drop. Maybe that’s why I wasn’t exactly a pinnacle student. Most people use coffee as a necessity, I like to use it as a catalyst and a convenience.
Most people ask what I have for breakfast and when I tell them coffee they just laugh. If you download my recipe above however, you’ll understand why. It’s about 500 calories with ZERO Sugar! It’s full of protein (collagen), fat (grass fed butter, and coconut milk), caffeine (an appetite suppressant), antioxidants (naturally found in all coffee), and nootropics (brain enhancers). While most breakfasts put you to sleep, mine supercharges your soul for the remainder of the day!
Why Kimera Koffee?
Since coffee is something I put in my body every day without fail I only use what I consider to be the best of the best. Yes I realize it’s more than $6 a pound, but I like my coffee to be of the highest quality.
There is a highly noticeable effect on your mental clarity when using this coffee. I also really enjoy the chocolaty smell, and the super smooth taste. I don’t use this coffee everyday so my body and brain does not adapt as quickly to the Nootropics.
Why Upgraded Coffee?
Dave Asprey markets his coffee as being almost free of mycotoxins and tells us that the crash we experience with other coffee’s is due to their high toxin count. Dave then came under fire from other companies stating that their coffee’s were free from mycotoxins as well so I did a test.
One weekend, I tested 3 different types of coffee and made bulletproof coffee with them and here were my results:
Brand name coffee from my supermarket $9.99 – Good tasting, moderate energy, moderate froth after blending butter and brain octane.
Coffee from nearby gas station $1.09 – Tasted terrible, no energy, little to no froth after blending butter and brain octane.
Upgraded coffee – Very good tasting, lots of energy, and major froth after blending butter and brain octane.
To me, the results were clear and that is why I still buy it to this day.
Why Brain Octane?
People always want to know if this is the same thing as MCT Oil and the answer is no. While it is derived from coconut oil like MCT oil is, Brain Octane is caprylic acid and actually enhances brain function and is also a potent antifungal that kills Candida cells, as well as restoring your stomach acidity to its normal levels.
I use it on most days, but because it is a catalyst of sorts, I try not to abuse it and become tolerant. Start off with a teaspoon per day as this stuff is powerful!
Why Bulletproof Instamix?
This is purely for travel reasons. I take mine when I go on trips and although it is not the EXACT same as making the real thing, it is a way better substitute than hotel coffee or paying $5 for a cup elsewhere.
Place coffee and mix in a BPA free shaker cup for best results!
Why Bulletproof Collagelatin, Collagen, and Great Lakes Collagen?
Long story short is I held out on using this product because of the cost, and all that did was cost me more pain. Two days was all it took of using this product and my little aches and pains subsided. Collagen and gelatin restore plasticity to ligaments, tendons and bones. Both are largely absent in our diet and these products solve that issue. Adding it to your coffee makes it super creamy and somewhat addicting. I switch off between this and Great Lakes collagen and still get great results.
The older you are (35 years +) the more you need this product.
Why Kerrygold Butter?
Kerrygold butter is made from grass fed cows and is the ONLY butter recommended to be used in making Bulletproof coffee.
Why Use a French Press and Buy This Specific Blender?
Plastic is no good for anyone. When plastic is heated, it will leech into your food or drink. When plastic is heated and the contents has oils in it, the oils will bind with the plastic even easier. Because coffee has natural oils in it we want it to touch only glass and metal to keep the plastic out of our body. This means NO plastic coffee makers, and NO plastic blenders since we are also adding oil and butter to our coffee. I tracked down a great French press and an all glass/stainless steel blender to side step these issues.
Why Native Forest Coconut Milk?
In my opinion this is the best tasting coconut milk. I buy it in bulk and use it in my coffee and as a dairy substitute. Do NOT buy the coconut milk in the cartons in supermarkets, or the coconut creamers. They are highly processed and manufacturers strip all of the healthy fats out of them, which makes them worthless!
Why Ancient Organics Ghee?
Ghee is an absolutely amazing resource to have in your kitchen at all times. Not only can you cook with it, but I like to switch off adding it to my coffee from time to time. The process of making ghee burns off impurities found in butter and may make it a better alternative for those with dairy sensitivities. This stuff is truly amazing!
