Celebrate Fat Tuesday!

bulletproof-coffee

 

Happy Fat Tuesday! Today, people will be celebrating “Fat Tuesday” with eating a paczki (a Polish tradition). There’s eating a paczki today and feeling like a zombie from ‘The Walking Dead”, and then there’s celebrating “Fat Tuesday” Bulletproof style (of course). Contrary to popular belief, fat is good for you! You may notice a lot of food companies put 0 grams trans fat on various food items at your local grocery store. Do not get sucked into what food companies tell you what is right for you. Instead, do some research on your own, and you’ll find out that fat is actually good for you.

 


 

Bulletproof offers the best fats around: check out Brain Octane oil (it’s what makes your coffee akin to rocket fuel), or check out XCT oil (for when you’re eating salads or making a smoothie), and be sure to check out the product of the month: grass fed ghee. All of these named products will make you feel better, and your brain will thank you for taking such good care of it.

Why Bulletproof Coffee Should be 1 of the 7 Deadly Sins

 

Bulletproof

 

Have you ever considered putting butter in your coffee? I’m gonna take a wild guess, and say you haven’t. It might sound like a bad idea to you, but I can assure you that it’s not. Dave Asprey, the founder of Bulletproof and author of New York Times bestseller The Bulletproof Diet, is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who has sparked millions of people to try Bulletproff Coffee. The basis of Bullet Proof coffee is to provide you with razor-sharp focus, mental clarity, and boundless energy. Having tested and tried this coffee myself, I can vouch for the claims that Dave Asprey is making. Upon drinking my first cup of Bullet Proof coffee, I felt instantly energized, and I was focused like I’ve never been before. There was something to this special blend of coffee, and I was hooked. Needless to say, I got away from being “Bulletproof” and it wasn’t until recently–when my girlfriend was interested in trying Bulletproof coffee–that I got back into being “Bulletproof” and I realized that I was ignorant for ever getting away from it. Just like anyone would do, Mr. Asprey presents a business with his “Bulletproof” line of products. I’ve tried several of his products, and they’re all legit. The only problem that you’ll run into with his products–is that they’re a bit pricey. For some, that won’t be a problem but for others–it will be. So, I devised a plan for you to enjoy Bulletproof coffee on a budget. Now some “Bulletproofers” will not agree with my plan, but this is for people who want to enjoy Bulletproof coffee, at an affordable price. After trying a ton of coffee (some good and some not so good) and with the help of my girlfriend (she’s a barista at Starbucks) I came up with this plan. In addition to my plan, I will also include the original Bulletproof coffee recipe. Have fun making this coffee, and let me know if you liked it (or not).

 

The original Bulletproof Coffee recipe

2 cups of hot brewed coffee made with Upgraded beans

Up to 2 tablespoons grass-fed unsalted butter

Up to 2 tablespoons Brain Octane MCT oil 

 

Here is my alternative Bulletproof Coffee recipe

One brewed Starbucks K Cup (Veranda Blend Blonde or Pike Place Roast)

Up to 2 tablespoons grass-fed unsalted butter. This ingredient is an absolute must. If you try this with salted butter, you will most likely throw up; it’s disgusting (trust me).

Up to 2 tablespoons MCT oil.

Add Stevia to taste.

Once you brew the coffee, put in your MCT oil, butter, and stevia (if you like). Blend all ingredients in a blender. I use the “Bullet” brand blender, but any blender will do. Blend for 20-30 seconds, and you’ve just made yourself one heck of a cup of coffee. There you have it. Not everyone is going to like this type of coffee, but that’s okay. It’s all about experimenting and seeing what works for you and your body.

 

 

 

Mind Control: A Quick Reminder Of How To Control Your Thoughts

The human brain. A beautiful, and perfect design of cells, nerves, neurons, all working harmoniously together. It can work for you, and in the same instance, against you. Today, our world is changing at a rapid pace. New technology being introduced constantly, information spreading at an alarming rate, and a thirst for more knowledge. Whether you think so or not, there is a battle going on in your mind. Every thought you have, every interaction you have with someone, and what you watch and read—factor in on how your mind works.

 

Nowadays, it’s easy to get caught up in mundane things, and let your brain go on autopilot. Without even knowing it, you don’t think for yourself anymore. As a species, we are relying on technology more and more. Instead, we should think more for ourselves and delve deep into our conscious thoughts. Take the time to really examine how you think, and what you think about. Are they your thoughts? chances are: not all of them. Throughout our lives, we have been influenced and persuaded by people, entertainment, and technology. Once you go over your thought process, you will discern which thoughts are your own, and those that are not.

 

Now that you’ve rebooted your mind, it’s crucial that you do not fall into the trap of psychology and persuasion from other people. It will be a process, but over time you will get better. Your mind is just like a muscle: it must constantly be exercised for maximized benefit. The more you train it, the better equipped it will be for you.

 

“Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.”-Henry Ford

 

You, and only you have control of your mind and your thoughts. Challenge yourself each day to forge an impenetrable mind. Our minds are powerful beyond belief, and when used properly, we can get extraordinary results.

 

Your mind is the driving force behind every action and decision you make in life. Fill it with your ideas, thoughts, hopes, and dreams. You will come to find true happiness and meaning in your life.
