Coffee? Yes please, but BULLETPROOF!

Yes, it is the fashion of the moment and no, it is not the latest Quentin Tarantino film.

It is a creamy coffee with healthy fats added and mixed in. The result is a highly energetic drink, particularly suited to certain diets, and nourishing to both heart and mind.

Bulletproof, that's how coffee should be for people on diets such as intermittent fasting or low-carb diets! It was created by the author of the Bulletproof diet, Dave Asprey, an American food guru who popularised the idea of putting butter in coffee, stealing the inspiration from the Tibetans who, at six thousand metres above sea level, put yak butter in their tea to prepare themselves before a climb.

Why is it so fashionable?

Bulletproof Coffee is an extremely energising drink that increases ketone production and activates the fat-burning state like nothing else.

Bulletproof Coffee helps you to feel full, active and focused thanks to a fantastic combination of top quality coffee and fats. All this means constant energy without ever feeling tired.

Other benefits of Bulletproof Coffee include losing weight quickly (when combined with a healthy, balanced diet), improving concentration, increasingenergy and reducing inflammation.

Coffee in the centre

Coffee not only tastes good, it is also rich in antioxidants. Caffeine keeps you alert and can help increase your metabolism and burn fat for energy. When combined with good fats such as those found in Bulletproof, it becomes a super healthy energy drink!

Is fat better?

We are used to hearing that fat is bad for us and we should reduce it as much as possible. What perhaps few people know is that there are two types of fat: good fats and bad fats.

Bad fats, or saturated fats, are found for example in sausages, lard, butter, fried foods, fatty meats, drinks and industrial fruit juices. They are difficult to metabolise and therefore tend to accumulate in the blood, causing an increase in total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol.

Good fats, or unsaturated fats, on the other hand, are essential for maintaining good health and general well-being. They are mainly found in plant-based products such as olives, olive oil and nuts, as well as in oily fish, salmon and mackerel.

Like proteins and carbohydrates, they act as fuel for the body's vital activities. They are the nutrient with the highest caloric and energy density, providing 9 calories per gram. They are key players in various processes such as the transport of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K), structural support of the body and involvement in the body's biological processes such as muscular growth and development.

How is it prepared?

To make Bulletproof Coffee, the first ingredient is of course coffee, ideally 100% Arabica, freshly roasted, freshly ground and of the highest quality. We have tried it with the Colombia BioWe tried it with the Bulletproof coffee, extracting it using the filter method to preserve the sweet aromas. Then we mixed it with MCT coconut oil, i.e. medium chain.

There are many on the market, but our official supplier is ketofood.co.uk because their oil is 100% pure, colourless and tasteless, so it does not alter the taste of the coffee.

You can also add ghee butter, or at least grass fed butter, i.e. from cows that have only eaten on pasture. In this way all the fats contained will be healthy and unsaturated.

Using a mixer or a milk frother, we made the coffee frothy and creamy, almost like a turbo-charged cappuccino. The result is really good!
