Deliciously fat fueled, dairy free boosted keto coffee. Rich and creamy without the use of any dairy.
Dairy Free Boosted Keto Coffee
Wait, before you ask, you can get one of these awesome coffee mugs HERE. So by now you have no doubt seen a lot of different fatty coffee recipes. They go by different names, such as boosted coffee, bulletproof coffee, fat-fueled coffee, butter coffee, and many other names. I like to call my own personal version – keto coffee, or just boosted coffee. Why? Well, because it gives me that fatty boost I need in the morning.
I have never been much of a breakfast person. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE breakfast foods, I just typically eat them in the afternoon. I’m never hungry first thing in the morning. I’ve been this way most of my life. It is how I worked myself into an intermittent fasting schedule without even really trying. I listen to the cues of my body and I eat only when I am hungry. But, every day starts with COFFEE. Who’s with me?
With the added healthy fats in my morning coffee, it keeps me full well into lunchtime. Are all these fats necessary for a successful keto lifestyle? Well no, not necessarily. Keto, as with anything else in life is not a one-sized fits all approach. What works for one person, does not work for another. For me personally, having a boosted coffee in the morning gives me clean energy throughout the day, keeps me from snacking, and adds some amazing health benefits. Not to mention, it is delicious!
WHY MCT OIL POWDER OVER OIL?
- Easier on the digestive system than oil
- More effective at raising blood ketone levels (up to 1.0 mmol)
- Easier to mix into any recipe or beverage than oil
- Flavorless, odorless, no oily residues
- Powder travels much better than oils
So now you might actually be wondering what is MCT? MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. Since I am not a doctor and I don’t want to steer you wrong, I will let Dr. Mercola explain it:
“Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have become increasingly popular as people are learning more about the health benefits of nutritional ketosis, which is achieved by replacing net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber) with high amounts of healthy fats and moderate amounts of high quality protein.
- Appetite reduction and weight loss2,3
- Improved cognitive and neurological function with possible implications in neurodegerative diseases
- Increased energy levels and improved athletic performance
- Improved mitochondrial function and subsequent reduced risk for diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases and epilepsy4
- As part of a specialized dietary therapy for the treatment of epilepsy
- Prevention of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)5
Short-, Medium- and Long-Chain Triglycerides
The disastrous “low-fat diet” dogma of the last half century has led to a devastating drop in most people’s intake of healthy saturated fats, including MCTs, as most people have bought into the erroneous assumption that saturated fats are unhealthy and will raise their risk of heart disease.
Besides coconuts, coconut oil and palm kernel oil, small amounts of MCT can be found in butter and other high-fat dairy products from grass-fed cows and goats.
Be sure not to confuse the extremely unhealthy industrial versions of coconut and palm oils (which are historically used as hydrogenated oils in industrial baked goods) with organic, virgin and unrefined oils available as “health foods.”
MCTs get their name from their chemical structure. Fats consist of chains of carbon molecules connected to hydrogen atoms. Short-chain fats have six carbons or less.
Medium-chain fats contain between six and 12 carbons, while long-chained fats, such as the omega-3 fats docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), have 13 to 21 carbons.
The shorter-chained MCTs, on the other hand, are more readily converted into ketones, which are an excellent mitochondrial fuel. Ketones also help suppress ghrelin (a.k.a. the hunger hormone) and enhance another hormone that signals your brain when you’re full.” Continue reading…
I shared part of the article from Dr. Mercolas site not to confuse you, but to show you that MCT Oil isn’t just some new fad going around. It is nutrition based in science. Now that you know a little more about what MCTs are, let me tell you a little bit more about what they do:
Benefits of MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides):
- Improved cognitive function
- Helps to maintain a healthy body weight
- Increase feelings of satiety
- Supports healthy immune function
- Reduced appetite
- Increases energy levels
- Helps support hormonal balance
- Improves athletic performance
- Antiviral and antibacterial properties
- Supports healthy gut bacteria
- Aids in weight loss on a ketogenic diet
- Improves mood
- Supports healthy cardiovascular function
