All post are my opinion, which come from my experiences, and may be different from yours. All of us have differences, but lets face it, all of have more similarities than not. 🙂
Butter Coffee? Butter Coffee (aka Fat Coffee) is a great way to start your day without an insulin response. If you have read my other posts, you will know that high levels of insulin put you into fat storage mode. Low levels will put you into fat burning mode. Start slowly with MCT oil if it’s your first time using it.
1 cup of Coffee
1to 2 Tablespoons of non salted Butter, Grass fed organic is optimal
1 Tablespoon of MCT oil (I like Bulletproof Brain Octain oil)
IF you like a sweetener, you can use liquid Stevia, Truvia, or any other sweetener that does not cause an insulin response. I like it without sweeteners.
Use a blender and blend all the ingredients together. If you like your coffee really hot, pre heat the blender before you use it with hot water. Blending it makes your coffee a creamy goodness, stirring it makes a hot oil slick.
If it’s your first try, change it from a tablespoon to a teaspoon of both butter and MCT, then work your way up. You can use as much as 2 tablespoons of MCT if you like, but work up to it.
Butter coffee will help you make it through your morning without feeling hungry and give you plenty of energy.
