What is bulletproof coffee? What is butter coffee? They’re the same thing! Butter coffee has been floating around now for some time with people both in the ketogenic lifestyle and outside of the lifestyle because the benefits from drinking a bulletproof coffee are for EVERYONE! It really doesn’t matter what your typical way of eating is.
Benefits of drinking a bulletproof coffee? Fat loss, creation of natural ketones, ENERGY, and appetite suppression. Personally, I drink a BPC every morning as my breakfast. There are days when I’m carb heavy and days when I’m strict keto, both days I include my bulletproof coffee!
I have two typical ways of making this great concoction in the morning. One includes a blender and the other includes a shaker bottle. The video below has instructions and shows how tos for BOTH WAYS!
In my Ninja Blender I blend 10 oz of Coffee, 1 TB Kerrygold Butter, 1 TB Coconut Oil, Salt and Cinnamon. I blender for a few seconds until I notice some froth in the blender. I pout into my favorite coffee mug and drink!
This version needs to be finished pretty quickly because if you allow it to sit, the butter will start to harden again. Sometimes I include a pinch of cinnamon on top as well.
New School Method
In my Blenderbottle, or Shaker Bottle, I put in 10 oz of Coffee and 1 Packet of Keto Kreme. I shake it up for a few seconds and pour into one of my many favorite mugs. Then, I drink!
This version can last longer as it doesn’t harder as it sits. My experience has been that the froth lasts longer in this version as well.
I think we can tell how much we enjoy or love something by how much we desire to share it with others. That’s true for me at least. When I discover something that has a great impact on me, that feels wonderful, that makes me laugh, that makes me think, I want to share it!
I recently curated some of my current favorite things to share with you! The entire curated list can be found here but I thought I’d share my top 5, in no particular order.
#1 Blue Light Blocking Glasses
My eyes are the worst. I wear contacts, stare at a computer or some kind of screen almost all day every day, and in turn, get major headaches from it. Blue Light Blockers do just that! The lenses protect your precious eyes from the harmful blue light that is coming off of this very screen you’re staring at right now!
I purchases these exact glasses back in December of 2018 and when I wear them I’ve noticed I don’t get headaches like I used to…. and they’re super cute. There are some brands that are charging $60+ for each pair, but I found these babies on Amazon for about $17, so I consider that a win!
I purchased this Bible last January of 2018. So after using it for a little over a year I can say that I continue to love it. The translation that She Reads Truth uses is the Christian Standard Bible translation. I think it’s easy to understand while still staying accurate to the original language as best it can.
This Bible has room in the margins to journal, book descriptions and history, maps, timelines, and reading plans with devotionals for each book in the Bible as well. It’s beautiful and I’m still obsessed with it a year later.
I use these types of shaker bottles at least twice every single day. I use them to shake up my coffee with Keto Kreme and then later in the day I use one to shake up and drink my Ketone.
This one is my all time favorite for a couple reasons. It’s not huge and bulky. It fits in the cup holder in my car. It’s white. It has translucent clear areas that I can see the color of what I’m shaking up! It cleans very easily in the dishwasher and doesn’t stain.
If you follow the blog at all you know that this past year I’ve dived into learning about the ketogenic, low carb lifestyle. This seasoning has been one of the BEST things I’ve found when living with this way of eating. This seasoning is perfect on almost anything.
I put it on avocado, scrambled eggs, roasted chicken, cucumbers with cream cheese, and so much more I can’t even type them all. Do yourself a favor and add this to your life. It’s delicious.
This one may be the one that makes you go, “Ummm… ok?” BUT I’ve been determined to restore my damaged hair. One of the things I found in my ‘research’ was that silk pillowcases are softer on your hair, less drying on your hair and keeps the moisture in.
So, I bought two of them. One for me and one for the husband. He doesn’t really care about it but I love it. I’ve taken other steps to care for my hair and skin but this little step is so comfy and soft and makes hopping into bed very enjoyable.
I get asked the question all the time, “Ok low carb, but like, then what do you eat all day?” What do I eat all day? Delicious food! That’s what!
For real though, it’s not hard to stay within the Macro allotment for a ketogenic or low carb diet. The way I usually track isn’t strict keto. I do more lazy keto, low carb. You can see how I track my Macros here.
So every now and then I spend a day filming what I eat. Everything. If i have a snack, it’s in there. If I drink something other than water, I include it. This particular day I had an extremely late dinner which forced me to visit Smashburger for some takeout. But even then, I found a keto-friendly option!
Check out my full day of eating keto in the vlog below. Do you have any low carb fast food favorites? Share in the comments!
There is nothing I miss more when doing a strict ketogenic diet than pancakes. Its’ weird because normally I’m not a huge pancake person but I can’t have them and I sit at the diner with my kids, there is something about the way the butter and syrup run down the edges of the pancake. I seriously crave it.
I was determined to figure out how to make delicious keto pancakes so that I could stay in ketosis but still satisfy this major new craving I had. I tried a few different recipes and they were either too thin or too eggy.
I figured it out! This is the way to my heart on a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee. This recipe is easy, quick, and is so good that even my kiddies love it!
Have you ever heard of making keto bread in 90 seconds? I was skimming through Pinterest and I found a beautiful picture with a heading that said 90 Second Keto Bread.
I immediately clicked the post to open it and peruse the instructions. Seemed easy enough so I decided to try it. Not only did I attempt to make this recipe but I recorded the whole thing for you guys to watch and decide for yourselves if you want to make the same attempt.
So hit or miss? What do you think? Will you be trying it? Do you have a delicious go to recipe for a bread-like item that’s Keto friendly? I would love for you to share it in the comments below!
