Good Enough Mother:
Butter In Coffee=Brain Power? YEP!
(Disclosure: I was compensated for my fair and honest review. But honestly… it was amazing..)
Elevate the season: My time with Bulletproof coffee
I love coffee; have since my freshman year in college.
I remember I started drinking it because, well that’s what college kids do, right? Cramming for finals, trying to get my brain to work and so on are all the reasons I took up drinking coffee all those years ago.
Later on, coffee became less of a thing I needed to function and more of a thing I needed to enjoy. So as I was moving through my life cycle (graduation, first job, marriage, babies, etc.) I learned to slow down and savor the flavor. Thought never a “coffee snob” I can and do appreciate a good cup o Joe.
Lately though, the way my life is set up.. YIKES! Since my days start so early and are packed from start to finish, it’s sadly been the 2-buck grab-n-go from the gas station up the street. It typically tastes burnt and bitter and I need a metric ton of sugar and half and half to choke it down. To say it is unfulfilling is an understatement.
WHYYYYYYY do I keep on with this?
As fate would have it something new (and damn tasty) came into my life in the form of Bulletproof coffee. Bulletproof Coffee is Upgraded Coffee blended with grass-fed unsalted butter (or Ghee) & Brain Octane Oil. It is low toxin, high performance & full of healthy fats to fuel your body.
Now I had heard about this before this was it! This was my chance to try it for myself.
I agreed to give up the gas station sludge for a week and see what Bulletproof coffee could do for me. Before I tell you my results let me tell you about my expectation.
- Aroma: I want it to smell good enough to make my taste buds sings
- Taste: See above only replace smell with taste. Seriously. I want them dancing and singing Broadway Show tunes when Bulletproof hits my palate
- Energy: I would love to regain a little of what coffee used to do for me. I used to get a little energy from it.
DAY 1: Once I get past the idea of no more candy coffee, I’m golden. When I added the clarified butter and brought it to my lips.. the AROMA! It smells like a big bucket of popcorn!
But get this: the manufacturer says Brain Octane Oil’s effects can near-always be felt instantaneously and that is exactly what happened to me! Literally within MINUTES I was feeling an energy boost.. I felt like my a tuning fork that was operating on a higher frequency, if that makes sense. And added benefit? Bulletproof Coffee Brain Octane Oil contains 16x the healthy fats of Coconut oil and improve your health and energy with regular use.
DAY 2: I’m feeling the same thing.. but now I know what to expect (the first day it caught me off guard because I’ve been drinking coffee that did NOT have that effect. One of the other things I notice is that I seem to have a bit more energy to power me through not just my intense workouts but also the rest of my morning.
You know what? I like that.
DAY 3: Okay look, as previously stated, I like candy coffee. By day 3 I’m good to drink my coffee without all the added junk.
It’s easy to make, tastes good and the effects are what I was looking for.. I’m now feeling the way I used to when I first started drinking coffee.
By now you’re saying. “That’s great Rene! Talk to me about the cost.”
Okay get this: You know my crappy gas station coffee from which I get nothing? That costs me $2.25. Using Bulletproof coffee (which is made with beans that are free of so called mycotoxins, a by-product of mold), the Brain Octane Oil and Grass-fed Ghee costs just about a dollar more a month.
Would I pay a dollar more a day for more energy? To be able to plow through my growing to-do list?
In a word? Yes.
Yes to this all day.
That’s a small price to pay for what I get.
Don’t worry.. making it won’t add more time to your morning routine. It’s super easy.
Just brew 8-12 ounces of coffee.
Add Brain Octane Oil to your hot coffee. Then 1-2 tablespoons of grass fed Ghee. Then pop in the blender for a half a minute or so. When it gets nice a frothy, it’s time to enjoy.
So that’s it.
As part of my job, I get asked to try a lot of things. I’m a bit picky because the product needs to fit in my life. This one does. So of you are looking to something that you can simultaneously enjoy and feel good about, I suggest giving Bulletproof Coffee a try. Invest in the starter kit to see how you like it before taking the big, buttery plunge!
Bulletproof Coffee has a variety of products available online, and in stores.
Give it a shot.. and let me know what you think!.
