Bulletproof Coffee Recipe

Posted by Joey Rea on Oct 10, 2018 3:00:00 PM

Have you heard of Bulletproof Coffee? Well, it is an interesting concept... adding coconut oil and butter to your coffee and blending it up each morning sounds like it might be a little, well, unconventional and maybe even gross?... Making your coffee this way has supposed health benefits for the brain, it's known to enhance energy, curb cravings and feed your brain some good fats early in the day to keep you going all day long. So obviously, me being an extra virgin olive oil fan, I thought I would do a little experiment and try out an olive oil version of this drink. Since extra virgin olive oil is associated with many, many benefits to the human body - it nourishes the brain, supports a healthy cardiovascular system, it can help to reduce pain and inflammation, it's packed with anti-oxidants, supports cell regeneration, and it is one of the healthiest fats out there (so long as you've got the real stuff!) I thought, I've got to try this out!
