My 2018 New Years resolution is doing something good for myself each day. Recently I’ve discovered the health benefits of butter coffee. Also referred to as keto coffee and bulletproof coffee.
My resolution accomplishes 3 things:
1.forces a slower morning routine and keeps me from running out of the house like a wild animal
2.increase healthy fats in my daily diet
3.improve brain health and as a result improve overall productivity.
Butter Coffee Recipe
Brew 12-16 oz coffee
Add 1 TBLS grass fed butter (unsalted)
Add 1 TBLS MCT oil
Blend in a blender or use a milk frother.
I know it sounds gross but it’s not. MCT oil can be found at any health store. You can add cinnamon or honey to give it flavor but Try to stay away from sugar. Butter coffee tastes just like coffee with cream!!
Benefits of Grass fed butter –
This is butter made from cows fed a grass based diet vs corn based. The fat from the cow has a better fatty acid profile.
Including CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) a polyunsaturated fatty acid that must be consumed in the diet. It is a powerful fighter of cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
Benefits of MCT- MCT (medium chain triglycerides) has proven to improve cognitive function. MCT oil goes directly to the liver and is processed as energy. Coconut oil is high in MCT’S.
The benefits of butter coffee will increase energy, stabilize blood sugar, improve brain function and get some healthy fats in your diet!!
