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.

What I Eat In a Day (Smashburger)

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!

Escarole Soup

When I was a kid my big Italian family would gather for every holiday and sit down to a multi course dinner. The memories I have from these holidays has influence how I raise my children, how I view the major holidays in my life, and how I cook.

As a child one of my favorite courses was the soup course. I know, weird! But… it was so good! The soup every single time was Escarole Soup. It was only ever around in my life during the holidays but now that I’m grown and can make my own decisions…. I make it all the time.

Is it low carb? yes. Ketogenic? yes. Is that why I make it? NO! Whether you’re eating a standard American diet or not, this is a great one. And take it from me, kids love it too.

When it comes to measurements for this soup, it varies. The video shows you step by step instructions, including how much of each item I used for the size pot that I have.

Ingredients

  • Chicken Stock
  • Eggs
  • Escarole
  • Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Simmer chicken stock. If you like things a little less salty, add water to dilute the stock a little bit.
  2. Coarsely chop escarole, rinse, and put in stock, stirring.
  3. Whisk eggs, add grated cheese, add salt and pepper.
  4. Drop egg mixture into simmering pot and stir.

Hope you all love the little piece of my childhood. Salute!
