I talk a lot on the subject of Trim Healthy Mama because it has taught me so much about proper, healthy, healing nutrition.
Bullet proof coffee isn’t founded or created by THM but it is used in the eating plan. Why? Because it contains butter and coconut oil which are super-foods, believe it or not.
Benefits of Butter:
Butter consists of butterfat, trace amounts of milk proteins, and water. It supports colon health and surprisingly enough it basically contains the same substance that mothers produce to nourish their babies. Butter is also rich in antioxidants and conjugated linoleic acids or CLA’s. These fight cancer, build muscles and boost immunity. I haven’t even began to tell you the other healthy and healing properties contained in butter. Read more from the original THM book on page 51.
WOW! So that fake butter is literally robbing you of all these amazing health boosting, life enriching benefits! Your body needs and craves butter. Don’t be afraid of it, crave this stuff. I know I do.
Lets talk about Coconut oil.
Benefits of Coconut oil as quoted from OrganicFacts.net:
Coconut oil is very useful for weight loss. It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help in taking off excessive weight. Research suggests that coconut oil helps to reduce abdominal obesity in women. It is also easy to digest and it helps in healthy functioning of the thyroid and endocrine system. Further, it increases the body’s metabolic rate by removing stress on the pancreas, thereby burning more energy and helping obese and overweight people lose the weight. Hence, people living in tropical coastal areas, who use coconut oil every day as their primary cooking oil, are normally not fat, obese or overweight.
These two ingredients mixed together make a powerful health drink and as weird as it may sound, mixing oil in your coffee actually tastes really good!
Some put it in a blender and whip it up.
Some add a bit of cinnamon and vanilla extract.
Some, like me, add a bit of Stevia because we like it sweet!
Some add MCT oil instead of coconut oil because its like coconut oil on steroids.
There are a variety of ways to make bulletproof coffee but as long as you have the butter and oil, you are on the right track.
Don’t just take my word for it! Below are some variations and more info in the health benefits of this metabolize boosting, energy producing, body nourishing drink.
