Bulletproof Coffee


Like most things on the internet, bulletproof coffee is either loved or hated.

The recipe is simple – hot coffee + grass-fed butter + MCT oil, blended and served.

Day 29 and Orange Coconut Cauliflower Rice 

Sorry about the bad picture – bad nighttime lighting and taken with my phone.

Seems crazy now considering it’s something I consumed daily, but I never realized how badly dairy affected me until I cut it out altogether during my first whole30.

This, of course, made me find an alternative, which I did in Almond Milk. I’m not talking about the gross stuff that comes in a tetra-pack from the supermarket, filled with all sorts of other stuff – I’m talking about the homemade kind.
