It's funny what can show up when you just open up to possibility...
You may be a lot like me, as the years tick by, wondering about keeping your brain sharp and alert
Getting rid of that “fog” that can sometimes settle in about mid-morning, and most commonly after lunch.
I really felt like this was happening to me WAY too young…
So, in my pursuit of trying to find something that could help me with this, as well as turning my body into a human experiment with intermittent fasting…
and going gluten-free…
then completely grain-free….
(as I called it!)
And, really, just testing to see what works for my body and ways that I can feel more like a peak performer and more like the person I was in my twenties and thirties.
Was that just wishful thinking?
Along the way I was introduced to a concept called “Bulletproof Coffee” by Dave Aspry, and I disregarded it for a long time. He kept showing up on podcast interviews, but I've never been a coffee drinker so I just disregarded it.
One day, on a long, crowded drive on the 101 freeway in So Cal and listening to a podcast, he was one of a grouped of speakers being interviewed.
I liked him.
I liked what he had to share.
and so I listened for the first time about Bulletproof Coffee, and it sounded very intriguing.
But I thought the same thing, I don't drink coffee so I can't imagine myself doing this.
Long story short, I relocated back to Scottsdale, started going to Cryotherapy and ended up with the Bulletproof Coffee Diet Book in the waiting room at the clinic.
Why not try it?
If I don’t like it, I’ll throw it out, right?
I doctored it up a little, fell in love with it, and that was two years ago.
First, I was drinking it about 3 times a week and I really started seeing some improvement.
I quit wanting to take my power nap from 1:30 to 2 every afternoon.
Drinking it squelched my hunger, and puts me into a zen type state of mind.
And, my focus and Peak Performance activity is off the chart.
I am getting SO much more done, and feeling great!
Finally, I lost 16 pounds!!!! YES, 16 pounds that I had no idea was "hanging on!"
And, weight loss was not my goal.
(Ok, that extra 5 pounds of muffin top around the middle? Yeah, I was looking for that to go…)
Here is my revised recipe for what I call -
1 cup coffee,
1/2 c almond milk or coconut
1 TB MCT Or Coconut oil ,
1 TB grass fed butter melted ( I use Kerry Gold) ,
1 TB almond butter,
1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 TB cacao powder.
Put in bullet, blend and then I drink it over ice.
Adapt as desired!
