Bulletproof's Brain Octane Oil is a Keto Staple #fatforfuel

By now you probably know how obsessed I am with Bulletproof Coffee especially if you follow me on Instagram.  Recently, I even got to visit their new Bulletproof Labs. Before I went Keto, I didn’t even like coffee. Now it is a staple in my life and makes Keto a breeze.

Luckily for me, Bulletproof has two locations now in L.A: The Art’s District, and Main St. Santa Monica. However, most days I don’t have time to stop at the coffee shop for my morning mocha.  You can find my step-by-step recipe in my keto cookbook. The most important ingredient is Bulletproof’s Brain Octane Oil.

Brain Octane Products Keto in the city

Brain Octane is a specific MCT, C8, that converts to ketones quickly, suppresses hunger, fuels your brain, and is not harsh on your stomach. It is perfect for Intermittent Fasting and keeps you in ketosis while providing long-lasting energy.

I go get coffee every morning and I love having these handy packets to make any coffee Bulletproof! They are perfectly portioned and easily transportable. I love to pack a bunch in my bag while traveling. It makes my mornings so easy and the benefits are insane! I have so much energy, and I don’t crave a meal until well into the afternoon.

 

Also isn't my Swell bottle the cutest?! It keeps coffee warm FOREVER! 

Brain Octane on the go! 

 

Remember the key to success in Keto is fueling your brain with healthy fats in order to reap all of the benefits of ketosis.  FAT = FUEL and FUEL=  A HAPPY BRAIN

IS THERE ANYONE ELSE MORE OBSESSED WITH BULLETPROOF COFFEE?!


OBSESSED WITH BULLETPROOF COFFEE SHOP by Jen Fisch

If you follow me on my Keto Instagram page then you know I have a serious obsession with the Bulletproof Coffee Shop in Santa Monica. I would go there every day if I could, it is that good! The only thing stopping me is that it is in the opposite direction from my daughter's school and my path to work, but soon that will change when their Downtown Los Angeles location opens. 

So I thought I would share some of the delicious menu items they have, because Bulletproof is far from just a coffee shop! It is the dream restaurant for Keto peeps! Plus they have breakfast, lunch and dinner! Lately we've been visiting the most for dinner! My daughter's favorite are the steak tacos which are in a coconut tortilla. My favorites are the salmon protein bowls or any of the breakfast items (which they serve all day long).

USING BONE BROTH AS PART OF MY KETO LIFESTYLE


Bulletproof Bone Broth

Bulletproof Bone Broth

I had never tried bone broth before going Keto. In fact the only time I had even heard of it was when I was reading an article about Kobe Bryant and how he drinks it daily to help overcome injuries and keep the inflammation down in his body. As someone with Psoriatic Arthritis this interested me. So when I wandered into the Bulletproof Coffee Shop a couple months ago in Santa Monica and saw that they sold it, I had to try it. I wrote about my first experience with the broth HERE so you can check that out, but fast forward a couple months and I have continued to sip Bulletproof's Bone Broth at least a few days a week.  

This weekend I was at my local Farmer's Market in Marina del Rey and came across a new brand of Bone Broth that can be reheated at home, Brothee. I tried the chicken and beef broth, both were good but I decided to buy the chicken. The really cool part is they also sell flavored Ghee that you can heat with the broth to infuse the flavors, so I bought the Basil Pesto Ghee. I think it was about $20 for 1 jar of broth and the ghee. Right now they are only at Farmer's Markets in the Los Angeles area, but he said they would be available for wholesale soon and then I assume will start popping up on shelves. 

For the past week I have been trying to Intermittent Fast most mornings and hope to continue that and I think for me this will be a great option on days when I can't get to Bulletproof. And for those of you thinking "just make your own broth"- yes, I know I could do that but with my crazy life that is not happening!

ALL THINGS KETO: BULLETPROOF COFFEE AND BONE BROTH


ALL THINGS KETO BULLETPROOF COFFEE AND BONE BROTH by Jen Fisch
One small mocha and a small bone broth to go! 

One small mocha and a small bone broth to go! 

This week I made an incredible discovery. 

For a month and a half I have followed a Ketogenic diet. I have read the blogs and forums and saw Bulletproof Coffee pop up over and over again. I was curious, but scared because I hate coffee. 

Bone broth: I just kept telling myself "pretend it's miso soup, pretend it's miso soup!"

Bone broth: I just kept telling myself "pretend it's miso soup, pretend it's miso soup!"

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! 

Yes I felt CRAZY HIGH with energy! 

Yes I felt CRAZY HIGH with energy! 

So the next day (yesterday) I went back! Ordered the same thing, a small Mocha and a small bone broth. I brought my daughter along, who has been Keto for a few weeks, and she ordered a small non-coffee latte and a Power Breakfast. The non-coffee latter still has the grass-fed butter and Brain Octane Oil in it and I had them add the mocha flavoring in there. She liked it! The Power Breakfast looked DELICIOUS! Great presentation! Then an employee asked if we wanted to try their Bulletproof ice cream. Ice cream for breakfast?! Of course she wanted to try it! So we each got a sample of their special chocolate ice cream and it was yummy! Super fatty tasting in the best way possible. So I let her get a small cup of that after her breakfast. I blame this on guilt because she has really impressed me that she has been able to stick with this Keto thing- she was WAY more carb addicted than me, so it is a huge accomplishment for her! 

About an hour after she finished eating she was giddy! She was super full but kept doing this happy tummy dance which was the cutest thing ever! There is a video on my Instagram page that I took to capture the cuteness:) I sipped my bone broth slowly once again. We went to a movie at 4pm and that was the first time I ate anything (a few pieces of Moon Cheese and Epic bacon jerky bites). I just wasn't hungry. That night I had salmon poke for dinner. I was totally satisfied, so crazy! 

ALL THINGS KETO BULLETPROOF COFFEE AND BONE BROTH by Jen Fisch

Now it's Sunday, of course I went back. Today I got a medium Mocha and a small bone broth. I still haven't drank the bone broth, I'm going to drink it tomorrow at work. But even without the bone broth I wasn't very hungry. So the coffee alone is extremely filling. I used to do low carb sugar-free lattes at Starbucks with heavy whipping cream and they never filled me like Bulletproof

So now I am hooked and my daughter is hooked on the ice cream:) I can guarantee I will be spending A LOT of time at Bulletproof Coffee and they are opening one in the Arts District too, which means there will be one by my house AND by my work. Goodbye money, hello fatty goodness!

Here is their menu! I do wish you could click on each item and see exactly what is in each one and the nutritional breakdown. Maybe I will suggest that to them, but I feel pretty confident I am about to become their best customer.
