Keto Coffee 101 – Everything You Need To Know

If you are currently following a ketogenic diet, also called keto, then you have probably heard of keto coffee before. This type of coffee relies on lots of fats and no sugar or carbs to give you more energy and help you reach your macros for the day. Does keto coffee not sound familiar? If so, that might be because it was originally ‘Bulletproof Coffee’, though there are some differences as you will see below. Keto coffee is an excellent way to get in your caffeine without sugary creamers and other additives, while also increasing the fat. As you know, keto is a low-carb, high fat diet, so this is really important! Take a look at how to make keto coffee and what to add to it. What is Keto Coffee? Keto coffee is simply a way to make a low-carb, high-fat coffee that is keto friendly. As you will see in the next section, there are actually quite a few benefits to drinking this coffee in the morning. For some people, it replaces their breakfast, while others simply use it as a pre-breakfast treat. It does fill you up for several hours, so keep that in mind when you decide what time to make your coffee. What is in Keto Coffee While there are many different recipes for keto coffee, it is made with 3 simple ingredients: Coffee Butter Oil There are some different specifications with these ingredients, along with additives that sweeten up the coffee, but most people drinking keto coffee have at least butter, oil, and the coffee itself. Another difference between keto coffee and regular coffee is that you can’t just stir it, but need to blend it up. This helps to blend up the oil and butter you are adding so it is silky smooth. How is it Different From Bulletproof Coffee? It is not uncommon for people to call this Bulletproof Coffee, since that is where the concept of butt Continue reading >>

Community Coffee Keto Friendly Cold Brew #drinkcommcoffee

This post is sponsored by Savings.com all thoughts expressed are my own. I am hooked on this delicious Community Coffee Keto Friendly cold brew recipe. I turned to a Keto friendly diet a couple of months ago and have never felt better mentally. It’s been hard to curb my diet, because I love all the sugar, rice and potatoes that I can get my hands on. One thing I have become very accustomed to over the years is a cup or two of coffee. I wanted all the sugary goodness I was adding to that morning cup of coffee. I favored my flavored creamers and sugar for a long time. In an effort to start off my day keto friendly I am now drinking a better for me cup of cold brew. I love that this cold brew still gives me the delicious Community Coffee I love and I get my keto benefits along with it. Community Coffee Keto Friendly Cold Brew Ingredients 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (you can add up to 4 Tablespoons) sugar free chocolate syrup (to add a little chocolatey goodness to the top) stevia (2 packets or to taste) 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons Grass-fed butter no-salt Glass of Ice Recipe Add Community Coffee, whipping cream, stevia vanilla and butter into a blender. Blend well. Pour mix over a glass with ice . Add chocolate syrup to top of froth. Enjoy. A keto friendly diet means I want my intake high in fat, with a decent amount of daily protein, and very minimal carbs. With all the benefits I was already getting out of my daily cup of coffee, I just wanted to kick all the sugar I was used to. I switched out the sugars for better ingredients that still give me the taste and flavor I love. Adding butter to my coffee may seem strange, but it is a beneficial factor to my keto friendly diet. It also helps me start my day by burning fat. And yes it gives the coffee a Continue reading >>

Health Diy: Keto-friendly, Butter Coffee Recipe And Benefits

Health Diy: Keto-friendly, Butter Coffee Recipe And Benefits

Bullet-proof coffee also called as ketogenic coffee is a great way to speed up your metabolism and lose weight. What exactly is a ketogenic diet? A keto-diet is a diet plan wherein you turn your body into a fat-burning machine due to the process that takes place internally called as ketosis. Keto-diet is actually a low carb and high fat diet where you consume very low carbs, approx. less than 50 grams a day and eat all the good fats like coconut oil, olive oil, white unsalted butter etc. You also eat moderate amounts of proteins which you get from chicken, cottage cheese etc. The ketogenic diet is also referred to as low-carb high-fat diet or simply LCFD diet. Below is the recipe for bullet-proof or ketogenic coffee along with its benefits: BENEFITS: METABOLISM This black coffee with essential fats has a tendency to speed up the metabolism. This is the only reason why it is recommended. Speeding up metabolism refers to easy digestion of food and no retention of unwanted stuff in the body. Since the metabolism is catalyzed, and there are less carbs, fats are broken down and consumed for energy. ESSENTIAL FATS Since you add in coconut oil and grass-fed unsalted white butter, you provide the body with fats needed for consumption and energy. PREVENTS IRREGULAR EATING Since you put in fats and caffeine in the body, you feel full for longer and avoid eating or munching at irregular timings. You also do not crave much so there are less chances of you over eating or wanting to eat anything that is unhealthy. SOURCE OF GOOD FATS Since the keto-diet and this bullet-proof coffee involves healthy fat consumption like coconut oil and white butter and less carbs, they are consumed completely by the body and there won’t be any weight gain or health issues like obesity, heart attacks Continue reading >>

Keto At Starbucks

Keto At Starbucks

How to Order Keto-Friendly Drinks at Starbucks One of the most challenging aspects to any diet or lifestyle change is finding room for little treats and on-the-go pick-me-ups. My recent entry into the world of ketosis has faced one, consistent road block: what do I drink in the middle of a 60 hour work week to keep me sane? Rum is my go-to but that’s no longer socially acceptable while one is at work. Since my mental health depends on the prevalence of coffee shop drive thrus at my disposal, I am lucky to have extensive knowledge of the Starbucks menu garnered through four years of reluctant service at the coffee giant which allows me to stay keto. So, with no further preamble, how to order keto-friendly at Starbucks. What Not to Order Frappuccino. No Frappuccino of any kind or in any iteration. Not the the light ones or the sugar free ones. They contain a premixed base that cannot be substituted and it’s full of carbs. Caramel Macchiato. It’s just a Vanilla Latte with the espresso poured on top instead of mixed in and caramel sauce on top. You can order it with sugar free vanilla but the caramel sauce does not come sugar free. It’s basically sweet lard and you don’t want that. You can order it without the caramel but, again, that’s just a Vanilla Latte and people only order the Macchiatos because the iced ones are pretty and it makes them feel special (which is okay, I guess, but I have no sympathy for your aesthetic sensibilities because it’s a silly reason to order a drink). Pro-tip: The caramel sauce is different from the caramel syrup. As stated above, the sauce is sweet lard. The syrup is a liquid and is used in Caramel Lattes and does come sugar free. Most of the bottled drinks. But of course it is easy to check the nutrition info on these items. Sm Continue reading >>

Mocha Chile Coffee (aka Spiced Mexican Coffee) – Keto Friendly

Mocha Chile Coffee (aka Spiced Mexican Coffee) – Keto Friendly

Coffee drinks are my beverage of choice whether it be a classic Irish coffee at the restaurant, a fresh brewed medium roast coffee in the morning, or a Pumpkin Spice coffee during the fall. I love them all, and am something of a fanatic. So, as I was harvesting the chile peppers from our farm one cool morning, the wonderful combination of chocolate, coffee and spice in the form of a Mocha Chile Coffee (aka Spiced Mexican Coffee) became a sudden craving. I made it low carb of course by the type of sugar substitute I added, but the chile spice is the star ingredient to get right. The Spice Mix for the Mocha Chile Coffee (aka Spiced Mexican Coffee) We had a bumper crop of chile peppers this year and we spent all fall harvesting, drying and smoking them. The smoked peppers are the most intriguing to me and this year they included Chipotles (smoked Jalapenos), Anchos (smoked Poblanos) and Pasilla (smoked Pasilla). When I heard that Starbucks was offering a Chile Mocha Coffee, I rushed down to try one out, only to be sorely disappointed. No heat! I was anticipating a spicy, chocolaty rich coffee topped with a spicy whipped cream. I asked the barista what was going on and they said really there was just a little spice on the top, but mostly it was a coffee mocha. Harrumph! So, as I was putting together the spice mixes for the holiday boxes, I used the mocha coffee as a test for how hot and how smoky to make the “hot and smoky” spice mixes that we sell individually. I thought if the chile spice blends could stand up to the strong flavors of chocolate and coffee and still provide a smoky depth, it would work with just about anything that needed that kind of complexity. While the smoky spice mix was great in the Mocha Chile coffee, I personally needed more heat. Because the h Continue reading >>

Vegan Fat-burning Rocket Fuel Iced Blended Coffee (low-carb, Paleo + Keto)

Vegan Fat-burning Rocket Fuel Iced Blended Coffee (low-carb, Paleo + Keto)

It’s time you and I started thinking about summer, yes? I’m slightly infatuated with the frappucino. But a lot has changed since last summer and those sugar bombs I used to treat yourself with once a week (read: every other day) are no longer in my repertoire. At least, I don’t want them to be. So, I came up with a solution. It’s simple, it’s tasty, it’s sugar free, it’s keto, and (I hope) it blows your mind. Now… wait! There’s this article going around that drinking keto Bulletproof Coffee for breakfast is “shooting yourself in the foot”. First off, based on my own experience, swapping breakfast for a high-fat, keto drink and practicing intermittent fasting is the best thing I’ve done for my health, ever. Watch: What 6 Months Of Eating High Fat, Keto Did To My Body. Secondly, keto rocket fuel lattes or my (new!) keto rocket fuel iced blended coffee recipes should not be compared to Bulletproof coffee. I created these keto drinks to specifically assist women in burning fat all morning long while regulating hormones and abolishing cravings, something that the classic keto “butter coffee” fails to achieve for many. Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here. Whether you chose to live a high-fat, keto life (as I am doing right now), or you’re looking at trying something new for breakfast; maybe your green smoothie or oatmeal bowl just isn’t cutting it? Then you should give keto rocket fuel a try. Best enjoyed as a keto breakfast, as soon as you get hungry in the morning Continue reading >>

Keto Diet: The Do's And Don't's Of This High-fat, Low-carb Nutrition Plan

Keto Diet: The Do's And Don't's Of This High-fat, Low-carb Nutrition Plan

I'm often asked about popular diets, so this week and next I'm covering two popular diets - the Keto Diet this week, and Whole30 next week - including the pros, cons and my take for each. I am not advocating or recommending that we all follow these programs. While these diets - or components of these diets - may be beneficial to some, my recommendation for the majority of the population is to keep it simple, streamlined, wholesome - less about hard rules with lists of do's and don't's, and more about the key fundamentals: limit added sugars and white carbs. Emphasize lean proteins. Tons of vegetables, some fruits (mostly berries), and more of an emphasis on plant based fats when possible. Find what works for your individual lifestyle, taste preferences, budget and schedule. If you do choose to try one or some of these popular diets, use it as an opportunity to help break and replace not-so-good habits, and to educate yourself and learn more about how you may respond to certain foods and ingredients so that you can make lasting behavioral changes that can stick around long after you're "off" of a particular diet plan. *** "I'm going keto." I'm hearing this more and more often. And odds are you've heard someone talk about "going keto," you've considered it yourself, or at the very least, you've seen "keto-friendly" products and recipes in stores, magazines, and social media. Keto is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet, with limited protein allowed as well. As with many of these diets, healthful food selections within each of those food categories is what determines whether the diet is healthful. The keto diet's origins "Keto" is short for "ketogenic" and is a type of diet that has been used for 100-plus years for children with uncontrolled seizures. Approximately half of th Continue reading >>

Complete Guide To Bulletproof Coffee

Complete Guide To Bulletproof Coffee

Disclaimer: Bulletproof products have been provided to me for the purpose of this review by Bulletproof as free samples. This has not influenced my review and the opinions expressed in this post are my own. Bulletproof is one of the sponsors in our KetoDiet Challenges contributing a package of Ground Coffee, Brain Octane Oil, protein powder, mug and t-shirt to all 5 winners. Most of you are familiar with Bulletproof coffee aka BPC - Instagram and other social media are flooded with pictures of mugs filled with frothy coffee. For those who are new to it, it's a blend of coffee and healthy fats, including grass-fed butter (more omega 3s than grain-fed) and MCTs. Adding fat to coffee may sound odd but it's surprisingly delicious. Contrary to common belief, it won't make your coffee oily and if you blend it well, you'll get amazingly creamy coffee. Although BPC is not for everyone, it can be used as a supplement as part of a healthy ketogenic diet. What is Bulletproof Coffee? Although for most people, bulletproof coffee (BPC) refers to a cup of any "butter coffee", the original BPC was created by Dave Asprey of Bulletproof. It's made with high-quality coffee beans and is known for having the lowest mold toxin levels. As I found out myself, it tastes amazing even without sweeteners or cream. In fact, I can drink it black without anything added to it. If you are interested in the science behind Bulletproof Coffee and how it's produced, have a look at this post on Dave Asprey's blog. Is BPC Suitable for Everyone? BPC may be a great addition to your diet, but it's not for everyone. If you are sensitive to caffeine and/ or MCTs, avoid drinking BPC or try alternatives. Use green tea, matcha or herbal tea instead of coffee - and virgin coconut oil instead of MCT supplements. If yo Continue reading >>

Make A Keto-friendly, Amazing-tasting, Butter Coffee In Less Than A Minute

Make A Keto-friendly, Amazing-tasting, Butter Coffee In Less Than A Minute

When I first started drinking butter coffee, despite some initial hesitation at the idea of plopping a slab of butter into my coffee, I loved the taste. And the sustained energy it gave me was incredible - no coffee buzz, just clean, steady energy all morning long. Butter coffee is a great, keto-friendly way to start off your day - with less than 1g of carbs, it will energize and sustain you throughout the morning. You can have it with breakfast, or use it occasionally to support intermittent fasting. Still, there's one potential drawback: making it can be a pain. I mean, brewing your coffee is probably not that much of a chore, but measuring out all the ingredients, putting it in a blender, mixing it up - I don't know about you, but I'm always left with a sink full of dishes to clean up. For just a cup of coffee! I started looking for a better way. You could mix up your ingredients ahead of time and store them in a jar, so you can just take a spoonful of your "magic fats" and mix up a butter coffee in a few minutes. But there's still the cleaning up to do - the blender again, which isn't exactly a fun way to start the day. And the results can be inconsistent: sometimes you get a cup of butter coffee with a little more coffee, sometimes a little more butter... why waste the time. And what if you want to travel, and make butter coffee on the road? I had no reasonable way to take the Jar of Magic Fats with me - have you ever tried to get onto an airplane with an unlabeled mason jar full of a yellow, oily, fluid? And a blender? TSA don't play that. So I tinkered, and played with the recipe, and fiddled around a bit. And then, boom! fatCoffee was born: • Individually-wrapped servings, pre-portioned so that the butter coffee comes out exactly the same way, every time. • Continue reading >>
