What Is “Bulletproof” (or “Power” or “High Octane”) Coffee?

What Is “Bulletproof” (or “Power” or “High Octane”) Coffee?



What Is “Bulletproof” (or “Power” or “High Octane”) Coffee?

“Bulletproof” is actually a brand name. As in, there is a company who packages and sells ghee, High Octane Brain Fuel, and more specifically for adding to coffee known as “Bulletproof”.

Bulletproof coffee = a tablespoon or 2 of MCT oil and a tablespoon or 2 of butter or ghee emulsified into 8 to 12 ounces of black coffee brewed in a French press.

The acclaimed benefits of this concoction?

suppressed hunger

lasting energy

mental clarity

Furthermore, the added fat is reported to slow caffeine’s effects on the body, thereby reducing the negative effects of caffeine, like jitters and heart palpitations.

If you’d like to learn more about “official” Bulletproof coffee, their website explains all the things much better than I can. ??

And, for the record, I actually think this fat + coffee emulsion does have health benefits!

I’m just not a coffee drinker… ??

So, I want MCT oil recipes that AREN’T Bulletproof coffee!

Stop. Back up. I feel like I’m getting ahead of myself.

Maybe you’re like, “Uh, what’s MCT oil?”

Cool. Let’s answer that!

“Uh, what’s MCT oil?”

MCT stands for “medium-chain triglycerides” and are fats most commonly derived from coconuts. MCT oil is a form of coconut oil, and all coconut oil contains MCTs. But, coconut oil isn’t PURE MCTs.

So, when the MCTs are isolated, the result is MCT oil — a tasteless, odorless oil that’s liquid at room or cool temperatures. (It will freeze, though.)

Although coconuts contain several types of fatty acids, there are just 4 types of fatty acids in MCT oil:

caproic acid (C6)

caprylic acid (C8)

capric acid (C10)

lauric acid (C12)

Only C6, C8, and C10 bypass your digestive tract and are processed by the liver as a quick and usable source of energy known as ketones.

Because MCTs occur is such small amounts in only a few foods, if you want them in a concentrated form, you have to use MCT oil. And, MCT oil can be a super healing, nourishing part of a clean diet — especially if you’re following a keto/low-carb/Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle or are following the keto diet for healing.

I use Perfect MCT Oil daily, whether in my morning smoothie or emulsified into a cup of hot tea for an afternoon energy boost. <— Save 10% on Perfect MCT Oil by using my readers-only discount code ALLTHETHINGS at checkout!)

I’ve actually never had it in coffee! And since I’m always on the hunt for new recipes and I specifically want MCT oil recipes that aren’t Bulletproof coffee, I went digging and found some!

Definitely going to try some of these! Sometimes I do my IF at the end of the day (eating in the morning and fasting afternoon and evening) and I need MCT in the afternoon on those days but don’t want to have coffee at 3pm! I’ll be trying some of these drinks! Thank you!

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?

Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.

You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.

Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.

Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.

Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.

Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
