The following is a sponsored post from Bulletproof Coffee, yet all opinions are my own.
Now that the holiday season is in full swing, my days are getting shorter but I’m packing in even more on my to-do lists. It happens every year and it’s easy to get caught up in the chaos that tends to come along. I bet you’re in the same boat as me too. All of us are putting our families first, cramming the season fun in and taking care of our normal priorities. Let’s admit- it’s stressful!
So it’s more important than ever, to take care of ourselves. I love to take some daily time to myself to refocus, clear my thoughts and relax before the day gets out of control. It gives me the mental clarity that I need to function during these high-stress days at the end of the year.
I’ll share my secret with you- wake up earlier than anyone in your home, find a nice quiet spot and pour yourself some coffee. You can even turn on some relaxing music or clear your mind by journaling your thoughts. It’s important to fuel your day with high quality coffee that has a low amount of toxins too.
High quality coffee can promote brain function, memory, and energy levels. It also serves as a massive source of antioxidants. During cold and flu season, these are important qualities in your daily nutrition.
I can count on Bulletproof Coffee to give me the boost of energy that I crave, as a busy Mom. The Bulletproof brand includes Brain Octane Oil, which helps you burn fat and it’s a quick source of reliable energy from fat (not sugar). The best part? It’s made from 100% coconut oil and supports cognitive performance. That is key for me! I need that fast energy that won’t leave me crashing later.
By taking care of yourself and holding yourself accountable to what goes into your body, you’ll feel better and have the sustained energy to tackle these crazy days. I can feel good about what’s going into my body and Bulletproof now a regular part of my daily self care maintenance.
Bulletproof Coffee is easy and quick to brew…
Bulletproof Coffee Recipe
- Brew 1 cup (8-12 oz.) of coffee using filtered water, just off the boil, with 2 1/2 heaping tablespoons freshly ground Bulletproof Coffee Beans. (French Press is easiest.)
- Add in 1-2 tablespoons of Brain Octane™ to the hot coffee (It’s STRONG – start with 1 tsp. and work up over several days).
- Add 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or grass-fed ghee
- Mix it all in a blender for 20-30 seconds until it is frothy like a foamy latte
