I am back on the THM (Trim Healthy Mama) wagon and very happy about it! I have been needing to take a good long look at my eating habits for a while. I am a pig if you must know. I have been blessed with a high metabolism but as I *ahem* mature I have noticed that it is less speedy. Also, sugar and gluten aren’t friendly to me- ever. I love them but they do not love me back and so I’m ending our relationship before anything drastic happens.
One of my morning go-tos is bulletproof coffee. If you haven’t tried it you should at least once. It’s creamy and frothy and YUM! It does require using a blender which can be an extra step that some people don’t have time for in the morning but it can hold it’s own against any fancy $5 drink and it’s GOOD for you!
This morning as I was putting the finishing touches on my coffee the blender seemed a bit off… not quite right…very bouncy and loud…
Hmmm… upon further investigation I could see nothing noticeable about the contents of my blender so I poured out my big cup of love and took a big ol’ swig. Strange…it’s a bit chewy??? I quickly spit out a solid piece of something. It was a chunk of black rubber. I know I live on a farm and things can get misplaced very easily when you have 4 outbuildings each with their own belongings, not to mention 5 different people moving those items about… but really! Trying to save my cup of perfect deliciousness I grabbed a fine mesh strainer to strain out all the rubber bits. It almost worked. If I only looked at the beautiful frothy top I could not see the black flecks below! But my better judgement took over and I realized that it’s probably not a good idea to drink inedible things. Well, I guess I could always make another cup- but this time I’m writing down exact quantities so I can replicate my little cup of heaven!
Basic Bulletproof Coffee:
1 cup of freshly brewed coffee
1/2 tsp. coconut oil
1/2 tsp. butter
stevia to taste
sprinkle of salt
1 tsp. collagen
flavoring of your choice
blend on low for 30 seconds to 1 minute until fully emulsified and frothy
