Is Your Morning Bulletproof?

Are you ready to upgrade your regular cup o’ joe? Does your early morning have room for a coffee blast that will leave you energized for hours without the caffeine shakes or late morning crash? Wouldn’t it be great to have a sugar-free start to the day?

Bulletproof Coffee was created by Dave Asprey.

If you are looking for a carb-free morning to help boost metabolism and put you into the fat burning zone, then this is the beverage of choice to start your early day. I normally start every day with a fresh green juice. There are days, though, where I need to be sharp and focused early on. These are the times when I choose a bullet caffe to start my engine. My surgeon and anesthesia colleagues would appreciate this concoction.

Give it a try, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Oh, and if your doctor told you to stop eating butter (the real stuff, not the processed nonsense) and fat…he/she was wrong. Low fat is so ’80′s. Get with the times!
