My First BulletProof Coffee

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!

My First BulletProof Coffee

Bullet Proof Coffee! A Healthy Cocktail?

My last blog was on Dopamine Fast and why I’m out of it.

But this one caught the eye, when a BBC coverage on it was forwarded by a relative.

Clearly it has an eye catching name. And the bullet proofing is through ingredients like butter from grass fed cow and the real virgin coconut oil.

Butter or ghee from grass fed cow is highly in demand as the purest and best form of good fat and the world is singing praises of the virtues of the virgin coconut oil.

Pure coffee is zero calorie and it’s invigorating and recommend for sustaining a longer period of fasting in my favourite Intermittent Fasting routine.

So, a cocktail of the three bests should be good. And I am happy to recommend it since I may not be the right guy to endorse it.

This is how I am going to do it. I have the machine to powder and brew a pure fresh cup of coffee from roasted coffee beans.

I need to get some purest and probably the best in the world, ghee from the grass fed and famous Vechoor cows. And I know a source.

I make my own virgin coconut oil from fresh coconut.

I will then try the cocktail but on one condition. I will have it during the eating period of intermittent fasting and not during the fasting period.
