Have you heard of Bulletproof Coffee? If you haven’t, the short-version theory is that coffee can be a health food if you get beans that are organic and free of mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are a form of mold that forms when beans are in the hold of ships and wet from their voyage at sea. In the health food world, this theory is not without controversy. Some argue that this whole worry about moldy beans is simply another way to gouge coffee drinkers. Nonetheless, I’ve broken my five year no-coffee streak to try some of this supposedly new “superfood of the gods.” Bulletproof coffee drinkers start with this mycotoxin-free coffee, add MCT oil (basically, fractionated coconut oil – MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides) and grass-fed-cows butter (key because grass-fed cows produce a different composition of milk than grain fed cows). The theory goes that your body can burn off the fat (rather than a sugary or carb filled breakfast), and your brain needs the fats to function optimally. I’ve been playing around with Bulletproof Coffee with and without breakfast and really like how I feel with extra fats in my diet. Like any business however, there are competitors to the Bulletproof brand of coffee that also claim to be superfoods that are low in mold.
