you don’t have to use bulletproof brand…it’s just the adopted/abbreviated name of “coffee with fats”
use whatever coffee you enjoy and add your fat of choice…coconut oil, butter, cacao butter, egg yolk, heavy whipping cream…i think it’s @devhammer that adds marscapone…(but that’s cheese)
maybe you haven’t ever had good cheese and that’s why you don’t like it. i don’t know why but i am sad that you don’t like cheese
It’s called cheese, but IMO, the taste is much more akin to a VERY heavy whipping cream. Somewhere between HWC and unsalted butter, I’d say, in terms of flavor and texture. And yes, it’s WONDERFUL in coffee. I picked up another 10 tubs this week when it was on sale again (sadly, not as much of a bargain, but still $2 off per tub, so I took it all).
Now I wait for @Fiorella to tease me about my mascarpone obsession again.
You can google search for egg fritatas - then just put the stuff in that you want! YUM. I can’t do butter in my coffee either! BLECH Nobody messes with my coffee!! Straight up, hot, black coffee. Delish! No putting stuff in it!
Keep hardboiled eggs in the fridge and have them in the morning with mayo and salt and pepper. Also, before I tried BPC it sounded really disgusting to me and I had to overcome myself to try it. If you need it to be even more of a meal replacement you can add both coconut oil, butter and an egg. Just make sure to blend/mix right away when you add the hot coffee so that the egg doesn’t cook. You can also add a little bit of cinnamon. Trust me, it is better than it sounds!
I’m sad he doesn’t like cheese too. We could be in My Big Fat Greek Wedding subbing cheese for meat “he don’t eat no cheese!? What do you mean he don’t eat no cheese!?”
Funny the things that will get an emotional response from ketoers
This is probably 10x more discussion of butter in particular than you ever need…
TL:DR - on average people prefer the taste of grass fed (Kerrygold is a US example) but no-one can offer definitive proof of why that is. Many also make health claims for it but there is little actual science to prove this. Many others say they don’t care and it doesn’t matter what the source is.
If you can afford it, try some grass fed and compare it to basic. Availability depends on where you live in the world. In many places, all of it is grass fed, if you are in North America, Kerrygold is the most widely available but many other local/regional brands exist.
Thank you. I’ve read your stuff. You’re very knowledgeable.
I’m a good solid two weeks in keto. Prior to the two wks lowered my carbs tremendously!
I’m starting to feel like it’s not working LOL!
I give up quick… I’ve tried so many things!
I probably just need to keep my blinders on… I keep seeing people’s posts on social media , that claim they’ve lost 12 pound of water weight in one wk. I’m so far, only 3 pounds down. I know everyone is different it just gets frustrating.
Blinders are good. That’s why this place is great - all the info, all the support, none of the BS and meanness of social media.
Lots of more experienced people on here are constantly surfacing fascinating things from across the web and the world so you don’t need to find them yourself and expose your tender will power to the social media swamp. There is more experience here than a hundred FB groups.
Remember, Keto is a Way of Eating (WoE), not a temporary diet so it pays to KCKO and do things that you can stick with and aren’t so hard that you give up and get a dozen donuts
