What’s the Deal with Bulletproof Coffee? (And how to make it…)

Bulletproof CoffeeYou’ve likely heard of it, especially if you read any men’s lifestyle publication. Wherever the name comes from, the recipe for Bulletproof Coffee is simple: take some perfectly good and delicious coffee, and add a whole bunch of fat to it, usually as butter or lower cholesterol coconut oil. I’ll admit, I’ve been hearing enough about Bulletproof Coffee that I really am tempted to try it. Who knows, maybe this will be the key to my best year yet?There isn’t much to what goes into a Bulletproof Coffee; it’s just the abundance of fat that makes it a bit interesting… and a bit disconcerting. The idea is something like: give your body a whole bunch of fat first thing in the morning, and that teaches it to burn fat efficiently…or something. Why butter is better than traditional cream, from which butter is made and is often associated with coffee, is sorta unclear. But that’s the recipe. 

I keep thinking about trying it, with both butter and coconut oil (premium, and unsalted of course). But then the actual morning happens and I just can’t think of anything more depressing than ruining my morning roast.

Here is the recipe, and I really want to hear if you think butter and coconut oil are valid additions to my morning routine. Have you tried it, and more importantly why would I want to? Leave your comments below, and look for my update on how it goes once I decide to try it myself.
