This “new” thing makes Lhalung smile. Drinking butter coffee runs counter to nutrition advice that dates back to the 1950’s. The science is now telling us the opposite. Saturated fats are good and carbohydrates need to be curbed. The reports are perhaps not surprising, that people feel focused, energetic, and sated after a cup of butter coffee. They even lose weight! What is the recipe?
8 ounces of strong, very fresh (not rancid), low toxin coffee (organic)
1 ounce of grass fed butter (Kerrygold from Costco is a good choice)
1 ounce of very clean coconut oil (organic in a glass container)
a pinch of stevia if you like it sweet
no carbohydrates but eat some protein if you wish
(you may want to try a teaspoon of butter and coconut if you want to work your way up)
Moderate caffeine consumption (2 to 3 cups of brewed coffee per day) can be good for the brain, associated with preventing Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Fresh coffee is also full of antioxidants like no other food item.
Coconut oil contains approximately 50% lauric acid. It boosts HDL, boosts the immune system, . The medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s), fats can act like carbohydrates, metabolize directly in the liver and give twice the energy per gram. Just don’t have carbohydrates available for your body and it will use fat.
Grass-fed butter, as well as having cancer fighting antioxidants, is full of good cholesterol (yes, it is OK to eat cholesterol), an excellent omega 3 to omega 6 ratio, vitamin K2, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) that helps burn body fat. Avoid grain fed butter because the nutrients are not nearly as beneficial.
