i picked up some of these (espresso) and it made me smile

Bustelo and others simply create more garbage by appealing to the "want it now and make it easy" gene.  For two minutes more/day you can grind this extraordinary Peaberry French Roast from Kona and have the most exquisite espresso you likely have ever tasted.  So it's $50/lb...small price to pay.  Fresh ground is the only way to have a real cup of joe, imo.  It really is wonderful coffee.

I did the butter/coconut oil. It tasted great, but I didn't feel much different. I consume a lot of salmon and fresh fruit anyway and Kerry Gold butter is a staple, so I suspect my good fat intake is decent enough.

I'll just have to get a little more exercise to fight the gut expansion common to my people (middle age white guys who work in offices).
 
kerry gold is some tasty stuff

i use it on some animal protein as well

slather that on steak off the grill or a roasted chicken and yummy

during the week i usually use coconut oil, coconut milk and a bit of stevia in my coffee

the ceremonial buttered coconut oil concoction is much easier on the weekends

because time and clean up

as you age exercise and metabolism are pretty important

hypertension and diabetes are rampant

i pencil in exercise and use some of the simple carbs sparingly

You can experiment with horseshit but it has to be expensive enough and you need to use at least three kitchen appliances.
 
just to be clear i'm not endorsing this guy or his products, i can (and do) get good coffee and butter here

i am endorsing the process of incorporating healthy fats into your diet and in this case through coffee/tea

however i do cop to using some kitchen technology

i own and use on occasion a drip coffee maker, a french press, a k-cup rig, a blender, a hand held whisk and a stove top whistler kettle

Were they professionally polarized? Because that can misalign your headlights.

 
I keep the bucket in a lead lined box in the trunk. I had it on the passenger seat once and we were nearly killed.

hard boiled eggs are great

when i have regular coffee i have two hb eggs (one yolk i toss to my dog) and a granny smith apple

the coffee can depend on how much gf butter and which oil you use

coconut is tasty and good

the mct is more potent

i'd suggest incorporating more healthy fats into your diet

your body will adjust and thank you for it

i like coconut, udo's, fish/krill, etc

just be care with mct

my experience i think that this (and bulletproof coffee) is a meal replacement

it's loaded with healthy fats and this product (which i haven't tried) has egg yolk too (it may require cold shipping)

from their faq

Should I still eat breakfast? My mom always told me breakfast was the most important meal of the day. I think Coffee Blocks is the perfect breakfast. I use Coffee Blocks as a meal replacement and then eat when I get hungry. The best way to decide is to have a Coffee Block first thing and then, if you are still hungry, eat a healthy breakfast. Again my general rule is have a Coffee Block for breakfast and eat a healthy meal when I get hungry.


when i have a large cup of bp coffee (16 oz at 7 am) it usually gives me good energy and i don't get hungry until 1 or 2 pm

i believe this is/was a kickstarter project and the prices may come down eventually

that said, there's no way around the fact that they're expensive (regardless of product and convenience) and that may kill this idea

i make a version of this {#Arrowd} every morning in my kitchen for a fraction of that cost
