So, you’re back at work and you may be feeling energized after your time off or you’re still feeling a little sluggish from the Holidays. So I’m here to give you something super easy to try this week that will help improve your energy in the morning and reduce some of that nasty brain fog you’ve got going on.
Yes, you may have seen one of my previous Instagram posts about the BulletProof Brand or the coffee itself. I’m always telling my clients about it and how this simple change in your morning routine can help you improve your energy throughout the day, reduce cravings, and eliminate brain fog.
This super dose of healthy fats in the morning:
- provides you with fast energy, from the short MCT’s that convert into ketone energy and can be used by the brain immediately
- helps restore the proper balance of good bacteria in your gut
- improves your skin, hair and nails
- reduces inflammation and
- promotes protein synthesis
You can make your own version of BulletProof Coffee with MCT Oil and Grass-Fed Butter, but I choose to use the BulletProof Brain Octane Oil & Upgraded Cocoa Butter for it’s high quality and potency. Brain Octane Oil is purified and boasts 18x more of the strongest type of fat found in coconut oil.
You want to avoid adding milk, sugar, or honey as they interfere with the benefits of drinking BulletProof Coffee because they will change your insulin response. However, you can add coconut cream, coconut milk, cinnamon, xylitol, or stevia. I add the Upgraded Hydrolyzed Collagen and/or Chocolate Whey Protein Powder to my coffee for an extra protein boost.
Try this this every morning for the rest of the week and I have good feeling you’ll be hooked. I started 4 months ago and now I can’t leave the house without my BulletProof coffee in the morning.
You will need:
- 1 cup of brewed coffee
- 1 tbsp Brain Octane Oil or XCT Oil
- 1 tbsp Upgraded Cocoa Butter
- 1 tbsp Unsalted Grass-fed Butter
- 1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
Brew a cup of coffee, add to your blender with all ingredients. Blend until smooth. Enjoy immediately. Because everyone oxidizes fats differently and your body may not be used to getting a high dose of fat in the morning, I recommend you start with a smaller dose of oil and butters and work your way up to 1 tbsp. Start with 1 tsp – 1/2 tbsp. See how you feel and increase your dosage over the course of a few days to a week. Remember, double the oil doesn’t equal double the power. 🙂
