Then I found out that 2 miles away from my house was an actual Bulletproof Coffee, coffee shop. I didn't even know that was a thing! So I went to check it out on Friday! It's in an old Starbucks right on Main Street in Santa Monica. It is beautiful! Great outdoor area and nice seating areas inside to work or hang out.
I wasn't quite sure what to order, but settled on the Mocha. It is the bulletproof coffee recipe with some sugar-free mocha mixed in. Even though I am typically a Venti kind of girl, I got a small just to be cautious. Then I made a bold move and ordered a small bone broth too. I read an article about how Kobe Bryant drinks bone broth and had seen it mentioned on Keto blogs and forums, so I figured why not?!
The Mocha was good! I drank it slowly, but it was super satisfying. Then once I finished I started slowly but surely sipping the bone broth. That was a little more intimidating. It smells like a beef broth, but looks oilier. There were also "things" floating in it. Herbs I guess? Not sure exactly. It helped that it was in a coffee cup so I didn't really look at it. The oily texture took some getting used to, but I did it. I sipped the whole thing over a course of about 2 hours. I had a meeting so I brought it along and instantly my coworkers were like "what is that?!?!" even through the cup haha. But I stayed strong and finished it.
Once I did I think it took about 30 minutes for me to start feeling SUPER HIGH! Between the bulletproof and the bone broth I was FULL of energy! I felt like I could do anything! By this time it was about 2pm. I finished the bulletproof at 10:30 I would say, then drank the bone broth between noon and 1:30pm. I had eaten 2 small pieces of turkey at lunch around 1pm, but I wasn't hungry. Just thought it would be bad manners to pass on the food they bought for our lunch meeting. I was floating on air. It was incredible! I want to feel like that every day!
