While ago, I had bookmarked this post by Wellness Mama in which she stated, “The only way I’ll drink coffee.” Of course I was intrigued! I’ve been drinking coffee since I was 14 and have tried pretty much every variation. I’m not a coffee snob (But I don’t really like crappy coffee. So maybe I am.) I’ll be honest, I haven’t really even investigated the idea of a quality coffee bean but since I discovered Bulletproof. Since this past weekend, we’ve upgraded our coffee and I’m excited to use it. So what it is? It’s adding oil and butter to a really quality cup of coffee. Pretty much everything our society has told us NOT to do.
The idea of butter in coffee can especially freak people out. BUTTER IN COFFEE? Yeah, it’s unsalted. And it’s amazing. Believe me, it’s much better than adding in tablespoons of sugar, soy milk or skim milk. Here at Considering You, we love healthy fats. This recipe has all of that.
So here’s the concept that we can get behind. It’s pulled from Dave’s (aka Mr. Bulletproof) article:
…your body is so starved for healthy fats that you feel like you can’t get enough. It will take your body a week or two to fully turn on its fat digestion systems when you switch to a high healthy fat breakfast of Bulletproof coffee. If at first it is a little too rich, try using less butter at first and build up to the amount you like…
Try this just once, with only 2 Tbs of butter, and have nothing else for breakfast. You will experience one of the best mornings of your life, with boundless energy and focus. It’s amazing.
After one drink of Bulletproof coffee, you’ll never be tempted to eat fat-free, insulin-raising, fat-storing toast and oatmeal breakfasts again!
Um. Sold. It improves brain function. Gives us energy. Helps us lose weight. It tastes great. Oh and I used decaf during the photoshoot since it was 7pm. I already am a night owl.
- 1 cup of French press coffee

Do you drink Bulletproof coffee? Or a variation? Let us know what you think!
