The BBC coverage on Dave Asprey, the brand owner of bulletproof coffee and my blog on it yesterday, prompted me to have my first bulletproof coffee.
Of course, I doubt if the three ingredients sold by Dave’s company is available locally. But I know how to get them of my own.
My coffee machine takes roasted coffee beans, powder them and brew fresh coffee. I don’t make fresh ghee, though we used to make it at home when we were small. So I went for locally made ghee from cow milk, available on the stores.
And I make my own virgin coconut oil from fresh coconut using the boiling method.
Onto this big cup of coffee, a scoop of ghee and a teaspoon of virgin coconut oil were added to make my first bulletproof coffee.
It tasted just okay, in fact good.
Now, why I am doing this!
The BBC coverage, the link of which was copied in my last blog, speak about the benefits Dave Asprey is bringing on the table. Added to that, I remember from childhood some people adding ghee to coffee for better health. Also the article says that Tibetan Monks added yak ghee to tea.
Dave Asprey does many more things like extracting his born marrow to grow stem cells etc with target to live till 180.
We don’t want to live that long. What we want is to live healthy as long as we live.
Again, Intermittent Fasting gives some of the benefits like growing new growth hormones, autophagy and cleaning and repairing damaged cells and even growing new ones.
And intermittent fasting stipulates no calories during fasting period. As such I had the coffee during the eating window.
From the benefits mentioned in the article and from ancient wisdom, I would recommend trying this brew of bulletproof coffee. Those of you with access to Dave Asprey‘s products may try that and others may make their own.
Those on Intermittent Fasting, please drink it during the eating window only.
A feel good factor indeed!
