A lot of friends and family thought I was crazy for putting butter and coconut oil in my coffee. Thanks to Mark Sisson's blog post about putting eggs in coffee, people now think I am even weirder because I now drop two yolks in my morning cup of Joe. After giving them a sip however, most admit they like the taste. Primal Bulletproof Coffee does taste great, but it also gives a great, sustainable boost to the start of my day. A few years ago I never would have thought I would be putting coconut oil, butter, and egg yolks in my coffee...but I guess strange things abound in the health world. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Growing up I was a very picky eater. A very, very, picky eater. My diet consisted of plain pasta, mac n cheese, cheese pizza, and occasionally some chicken breast. Cringe. One of the foods I did eat growing up that wasn't nutritionally poor was tuna fish. I am not a huge fan of conventional mayo, and have been too lazy to learn how to make my own thus far, so tuna has not been of my most consumed foods as of late. Today however, I had a breakthrough that I am very excited about.
I enjoy chocolate, and love all of the health benefits that chocolate possesses. Unfortunately I've run into a catch twenty two when it comes to chocolate: the stuff I like isn't healthy and the stuff that is healthy I'm not thrilled with. Dark chocolate I buy in stores just doesn't do it for me like the Hershey's bars of my childhood. But of course Hershey's bars are not going to do my health any good. So, I decided why not try and make my own chocolate?
I am not the strictest paleo diet adherent. I make an effort (not that it's very hard!) to eat tasty paleo foods often, but I also make an effort not to restrict myself. As a result of this, I have gotten in the habit of making primal treats, making sure that I don't restrict myself from the foods I love, but also making sure to put nourishing things in my body. In the past several months, I have fallen for paleo ice cream. Summers in Seattle aren't quite hot like the desert, but ice cream hits the spot when the thermometer is anywhere above 70 degrees and sunny. I became such a fan of paleo ice cream that I ended up making my own recipe book.

This is my first ever video, showing you how to make Bulletproof Coffee. David Asprey from BulletproofExec.com came up with the recipe and I am a huge fan. The video will be followed by a detailed look at Bulletproof Coffee and its ingredients. Cheers!
It seems one of the only healthy breakfast foods out there these days is some type of egg variation, whether it be scrambled eggs or a vegetable/meat omelet. Lately, I've been getting a bit tired of these meals, and I've been missing pancakes. Unfortunately, most pancake recipes are quite unhealthy with all of the sugar and flour called for.
