Mark Sisson Acknowledging The Awesomeness Of Bp Coffee... And Now Trying To Create His Own?
"Bulletproof coffee has taken the paleo world by storm. Not me, though.
Donâ€™t get me wrong. Iâ€™m all for people dropping grass-fed butter and coconut/MCT oil into their high-quality coffee, blending it all up into a high-octane mug of frothiness, but I just canâ€™t get into it. If weâ€™re talking coffee additives, I prefer my butter in the form of cream. Thatâ€™s me. I definitely see the appeal of it, though, and Iâ€™m sold on the merits of the drink and its components. Itâ€™s just not for me.
However, the idea of adding non-traditional fatty food items to coffee intrigued me, so I decided to explore other options. Eventually, I landed on eggs."
Ok so... eggs?
I know we are a huge fan of raw egg yolks here on the Bulletproof Exec, but I feel that many of the benefits that have earned Bulletproof Coffee it's popularity are being defeated - yet people will still jump onto Mark's recipe because of the hype around it.
The main benefits from standard BPC compared to other variations are related to fasting and cognitive function. Also I'm not so sure how the cooking your eggs as little as possible philosophy goes down with this.
Overall I don't see this as being anywhere near a replacement for BPC, or in fact anywhere near enough to vaguely compete with BPC, but I'm still keen to give it a try and perhaps alternate between the ttwo.
- 1 1/2 cup (350 ml) coffee
- 3 pastured egg yolks
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp of salt
(yes, you saw sugar on that list correctly...)
