Bean Me Up

bullet proof coffee

Dave Asprey is the man behind Bulletproof Coffee and he inspired me to put my own “healthier” twist on this healthy fat drink.

Once in a while, I will have this creamy, delicious beverage with my breakfast or in the afternoon as a “boost” or “pick me up”.  You can make it with decaffeinated coffee but make sure the beans are swiss filtered decaf or you can try Dandy Blend chicory coffee substitute which tastes almost exactly like coffee but without the acidity and it’s gluten-free too!

My secret ingredient is the Peruvian root called maca which gives stamina, endurance and balances hormones!

PS.  I don’t recommend drinking caffeine after 1pm if you are sensitive to it.  I also don’t recommend caffeine if you have adrenal fatigue, instead choose medicinal mushroom elixirs like cordyceps from Four Signmatic (Raw Elements is the Canadian distributor).
