The new thing I tried for March is coconut oil in my coffee, (if you are new to the site my new years resolution was to try something new each month). I’m sure you all have heard of Bulletproof Coffee, if you haven’t HERE is the skinny on it. I have heard and read about this some time ago, and never have gotten around to trying it. I haven’t done the butter part of the recipe as I don’t have any salt free butter on hand. But I can tell you, just with the coconut oil alone, it is DELICIOUS! The trick is using really good organic coffee and a blender to make the magic happen. It resembles a creamy foamy latte.
Why coconut oil in coffee you ask? Well the premise is that instead of eating breakfast you drink your fat laden coffee and: one-you are not hungry, two-you are transforming your body into a fat burner ( medium chain fatty acid requires no conversion in the body it is just straight on energy), and three-it makes you super alert, energetic, and “bulletproof”.
I haven’t done it enough to see if the three things above are true for me, but it tastes so good, that I am planning on experimenting with it over the next month. I love coconut oil, not only does it taste great, it has many health benefits. Read more about it HERE. I dare you to try it!
