Bulletproof Coffee TWO WAYS

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!

Old School Method

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.

90 Second Keto Bread?

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!

A Full Day of Eating Keto (vlog)

What do people who follow a ketogenic lifestyle actually eat all day? I had that question when I was researching and considering trying this for myself.

Since then, I’ve made multiple vlogs documenting normal days of eating keto. Sometimes I plan the day before what my meals will be, this was not one of those times.

Check out this day in my life where I ended up going out to lunch, forgot to do all the things I wanted to do, and still managed to end the day with near perfect macros!

January Ketone Experience

 

It’s time for a special ketone experience to kick off 2019! It’s been awhile since I’ve put together a special experience pack but what better time to launch one than the beginning of a new year?

This time last year I had no idea that how I was feeling could easily be altered. How was I feeling? I was feeling tired. All. The. Time. Seriously, I needed constant naps and was always fighting exhaustion. I was feeling heavy. I guess bloated would be a good way to describe it? Just heavy and lousy and not like myself. My clothes weren’t fitting the way I liked, my skin wasn’t doing that great, and overall I just wasn’t happy with how I felt.

Then I saw a Facebook post from my sister in law. She introduced me to ketones (a drink that supplies your body with ketones & puts you into ketosis) and a different lifestyle that I just gravitated towards. I did all the research. I watched all the videos. I read all the articles. I learned quickly and dove right in. Now a year later I can say I am SO glad that I did!

In addition to losing 40lbs (and KEEPING IT OFF!), the exhaustion has gone away. I don’t need that afternoon nap or the 5 cups of coffee. Don’t get me wrong I still love my coffee, but it doesn’t drive me anymore. I’ve kicked bad habits, created better cravings, and was able to buy new jeans.

The science behind exogenous ketones makes total sense to me. The science behind a ketogenic way of eating makes total sense to me. When I put them together it was like magic. Over 2018 I did not stay in a strict keto way of eating. I slowly added back in items  that I love, like pastas, potatoes, and pizza. Yet, I’ve been able to maintain because of a few things; altered eating habits, use of ketones & keto kreme, and periodic intermittent fasting.

So, yes, I want to share all of this with you because I’ve experienced it. I know it works. I know the changes are worth it. I’ve put together a special experience pack this month for those of you who are looking to try something new that could very well change your year like it did mine in 2018.

Can you maintain weight loss after a ketogenic diet?

Whenever we start a new diet we’re told the same thing by people, “Once you stop you’ll gain all the weight back!” I’m sure it’s true for most diets and most people, but I’ve experienced something different with the keto way of eating!

Due to crazy summer life, amped up time at work, two productions, and just lack of planning, I’ve been off my keto way of eating for a few months. Guess what? I have not gained ANY of it back! How in the world does that happen? I contribute it to a few things:

  1. Keto helped me learn to make better choices
  2. I drink keto kreme with my coffee for breakfast each day
  3. A slight increase in physical activity
  4. Including ketones in my day, keeping me fuller longer
  5. My cravings have significantly changed.

Now that it’s fall and my life is coming together again I’m going to get back to my way of eating. Why? Because I feel absolutely GREAT when eating keto and feel absolutely HORRIBLE when I’m not. Want to join me? Comment below if you’re ready to dive into a healthier fall!
